Let's get physical, but not that kind of physical...

I've just left a relationship in which I was having great sex, but not experiencing enough non-sexual physical affection from my partner.

How can I get more of that feeling of physical affection without actually hooking up with someone? [more inside]

How do I show affection?

I have a female friend who is having a hard time. I'd like to show my affection and support. Unfortunately, I'm a guy, so everything risks to be misread as attempts to hit on her. That's not what I want. Also, I'm not really good at these things. What should I do?
