Are you a hugger?

    Not a hugger at all. The only people that I like to hug are my kids & my fiance.

    I usually try to avoid hugs from anyone, even family. With the exception of my Grandma. I just usually tense up & get all awkward. Yeah, I don't know, my social skills aren't the greatest. :smile:

    * And as far as strangers- shaking hands is as far as I'll go. I've got a problem with personal space- stay outta my bubble :wink:

    I'm a total touch-me-not. The only people I care to hug are my husband, kids, and a couple of really close friends. And maybe my grandma, but only because she's awesome.

    I have never been a real touchy person, not even with family. My mother and sister are insane huggers, they hug EVERYONE. I hug when I have to so I'm not an a-hole but I don't go out of my way to hug. Even boyfriends, up until my current boyfriend I wasn't a hugger, but he changed me. lol I love to hug my boyfriend, and his son. I've always loved hugging my god children, little cousins, friends kids and what not. The way I see it, little kid hugs are awesome because they mean it with all of their little hearts. It seems to me like most hugs are just out of habit.

    Total hugger here.
    People that I know aren't huggers, I'll hug them longer 'til it's that uncomfortable time lapse. Makes me laugh.

    yes and no.

    I like to hug my friends.

    but there is a guy at work whom I've been freinds with (work only) for like 15 years. When he hugs me, he squeexes his chest against mine a little too tight ... and holds it there for a little too long.

    I am a hugger. I have experienced them all...

    The normal hug
    The mutual one arm over the shoulder one around the waist hug
    The bear hug
    The lingering hug
    The slow rub on the back hug
    The fast rub on the back hug
    The shoulders in, rear end out hug
    The hug where your heads are around each others arms

    and of course

    The double pat on the back bro hug

    It really depends on who it is.

    I'm not big on the whole girlfriends hugging whenever they see each other. Not sure why. I just try to give the 'back tap' and end the hug as soon as possible.

    I like hugs in social situations. There are a couple people I know professionally who hug, and it's a little odd. Mostly because I know that if I were a man, they wouldn't try to hug me. It's irritating. BUT I definitely try to respect other people's views on hugging. There are one or two people I'm very good friends with who are very anti-hug, and I don't hug them. I think you can avoid hugs by keeping a reasonable distance between you and the potential hugger when you say hi. There's a chance they'll step in, but if you can catch the moment before they open their arms, stick out your hand for a handshake. Hug avoided! (This is what I do at work.)
