    No. I find hugging awkward... My friends always hug when we see one another...and I find that I am content with just smiling, waving and saying hello...hahahaha

    The only person I like to hug is my fiance...or my pets...haha And maybe one day my children... Everyone else...just weird.

    Definitely NOT a hugger. But I have no problems letting people know that. I'm polite, if it looks like someone's coming in for a hug (I'm pretty good at reading body language), I quick jump in with an extended had and "I'm not usually a hugger, hope you don't mind."
    If it's someone I know real well I have a pretty smart mouth and might say something like, "I'm not sleeping with you, you shouldn't be touching me!" All in good fun, jokingly, never rudely!

    I only hug my SO! My family was never affectionate growing up so I never learned hugging as a natural thing. With my family we've always got those awkward shoulders in, butts out kinda hugs with the bro pat on the shoulder. I try my best to give obligatory hugs to be polite, but I never initiate the hug!

    i love hugs - to give them and receive them! :D my hugs don't seem to go over well in china, though. despite there being no concept of personal space and people will actually touch my blonde hair while i'm riding the bus... a hug to a friend or relative? unheard of!
  • I LOVE TO HUG!!! Full frontal is really good but side hugs are good for different relationships. But I believe in giving my children at least 8 hugs a day just to be healthy. Besides a good hug can relieve stress and just make ya feel good. I will hug anyone...hugs are good:-)

    I'm a hugger, sorta kinda... When I'm in the huggy mood, then it's peachy. When I'm super busy, back off or I'll flatten ya.

    When I'm around a certain someone, I may have the intention of hugging, but ummm.... well. Sometimes just being that close makes me wanna do stuff that is probably not so acceptable to do in public :tongue:

    I am not. Never have been, never will. Have a social event coming up this weekend where there will be some hugs. Ugggh. I'm just not a hugger. Is something wrong with me? :tongue:

    Anyone else anti-hug?

    Totally agree. The only person I enjoy hugging on a regular basis is my son.

    I like to hug certain people, my mom, my step mom, my nieces/nephews, my grammy, but everyone else, it's awkard. I have a very limited personal space bubble and I don't like it invaded. Weird thing is, people seem to want to hug me...maybe it's because I appear squishy & cuddly? That is also the hardest part of pregnancy, people wanting to touch my belly.

    Oh, sure! But many people I know aren't. They say some hugs can be "too long". And my groping is "inappropriate". And sliding my right leg up and around them makes them "really uncomfortable". Geez.

    So not a hugger. Totally cringe when I see them coming...except from my grandkids!

    Only to my family and very few friends in person. I don't like being touched by people unless I know them.
    On here I give ((hugs)) all the time, but to be in person no.

    Yes, I am a hugger :)
  • I am indeed a hugger, once again. Lost that for awhile when the weight was packed on - but now that I'm not worried (omg they'll feel how fat i am!) back to lots and lots of hugs!

    [ this is MY space]

    [this is YOUR space]

    unless you are my kid, my spouse, or my dad.
  • Anti-hugger. I like my space...unnecessary touching not welcomed. :smile:

  • I'm with you. I hate hugs. I do hair, and I can't stand it when one of my customers wants to hug me before they leave. I live in a huggy area though, so I have to just accept it.
