"And the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset".
"Social norms have begun to change. I understand that, and I've heard what these women are saying", he wrote on Twitter.
In defence, the Democrat said: "In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort", he responded.
The New York Times addressed the concerns about former Vice President Joe Biden's allegedly inappropriate behavior but seemingly minimized its impact simply by referring to him as a "tactile politician". "It's a way I've tried to show I care about them and I'm listening", he also said.
"That's my responsibility, I think - I shake hands, I hug people", he said. "I will. I will", Biden said.

In a video posted to Twitter, Mr Biden also teased an announcement of his political plans, promising to "be talking to you about a whole lot of issues", before conceding that his behaviour had offended some. President Donald Trump mocked the former VP at a Republican event on Tuesday night.
Biden's past conduct with women has come under scrutiny since March 29, when NY magazine published an account by Lucy Flores, a former Nevada state legislator.
Since then, another woman has said Biden grabbed her face when he was thanking congressional staff at a 2009 event. "That's my responsibility and I will meet it". "But I meant it", Trump quipped after telling a story about wanting to kiss a US Army general. By all accounts, many liberal voters are ready to embrace Biden's entrance into the race and won't blink an eye at these troubling suggestions, especially considering the charges that have left Trump unfazed.
While Biden admitted he did nothing wrong, he promised to eschew that behavior in the future. I worked my whole life to empower women.
Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives, has said the claims are "not disqualifying" for Mr Biden's hopes of winning next year, should he run. I've written a -so the idea that I can't adjust to the fact that personal space is important, more important than it's ever been, is just not thinkable.
The video, which uses cable TV footage of Ms Flores detailing her Biden encounter, suggests the former vice-president is setting a bad example for United States children.
