    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.

    I am *not* a hugger. Even my hubby and son have to give me enough warning, and not try to hug me while I'm cooking dinner!

    So do you have a strategy for this event? Carry something so you don't have free arms? Work the two-handed (or one hand, other hand on arm) "I'm so genuinely glad to see you" hand shake? Perfect the "oops I missed" air hug?

    Fake sick and say you don't want to share your germs? Wear a tensor bandage? Spill something really icky looking on your shirt? Wear lots of make-up that people won't want smeared on their face/clothes?

    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?

    Yes, I love hugs.
  • I am not a hugger, at all. It seems awkward to me; someone makes the move I anticipate it and try to reciprocate--always with the wrong arm/hand:embarassed: so we end up doing a brief robotic arm shuffle to rearrange to right 'hugging' position. It makes me dislike it even more.
    Although I will hug family and close friends. I blame my anti-hugging stance on past jobs. NO touching, please!

    Not really. My family isn't either. I never make a move to hug anyone unless they go for it first. I won't initiate it but I hug people back.

    I'm totally a hand-shaker though.
  • I like a nice hug :) I only offer them when appropriate....haven't seen someone in a while, to show my affection (son, husband), to comfort someone, or to wish someone well when they move (which, being a military family happens often with us).

    I'm all for a good hug. It's the leg humping that I tend to have issues with. :grumble:

    I am in fact a hugger, and a snuggler.
  • I love giving loved ones big squishy hugs. Otherwise, a hand shaker. Sometimes a Hollywood, no lipstick air kiss.:glasses:

    Yup. I love giving hugs! I mean, I'm not hugging people unexpectedly or anything. I do hug more than just my friends and family, though.

    I hug when drunk, if I like you, or if it's been announced.

    Ie: Hi! I'm going to hug you now! No really, that's how it works. Surprise hugs usually end in blood and it's never mine.

    it depends on the situation and who it is.... hugs have always been sort of awkward in my family lol....but I like hugs, just feel weird about it sometimes, so I usually just am when the other person is... (and obviously am w my bf lol)
