    I am super affectionate around some people

    and others I'm a 'normal level'. It's mainly with my good friends who I love to see everyday! Every time I see my friends I just want to attack them with hugs and love~ Often times they have to push me off of them because I tend to cling too much. If they don't they'd be late...

    I think there should be more hugging in this world between all people . Im old but I still love to get hugs. I am very forth going and I love to hug and be hugs by everyone. Might be less arguing if you would just hug a person and not blow up at them.

    I need to rant. I hope you don't mind.

    People - men And women - if you married someone and now refuse to have sex with that person, expect that they will get it elsewhere. Expect that your refusal of physical affection will hurt the marriage. Expect that your spouse will be resentful. To bind someone to a marriage...

    I love hugs that are warm

    and really affectionate, especially ones that make me feel tingly inside. I love hugs that are tight, heart to heart, with both arms, not those crappy one-armed things. If it's a guy I'm hugging, I love it when his neck touches mine, and I love it when my back is stroked. It...

    Experience Is the Best Teacher!

    My family that raised me was not terribly affectionate and I am naturally a "touchy-feely" soul with those I love.  I decided that I would never waste a chance to hug a friend/family member and tell them how much I love him or her! I look at it this way..We are...

    I Looooooooove to Hug

    I am so flippin' affectionate! I can't stand people that are really uptight and when you hug them there's that space between your necks and they just lean in with a pat on the back... or the awkward hug where they hug the wrong way and you get their shoulder in your neck... ouch...

    I am probably only very affectionate

    because I've never really been given any affection. I love to hug but I've always wanted to cuddle with someone.

    If It's One Thing I'm Sure Of, It's Affection.

    I'm sure everyone loves that feeling of someone else's touch but not to the extent or way that I do... Most of the guys I've fallen for was only in it for that one certain touch to which I didn't really feel comfortable with. But they get me every time when I look into there eyes...

    Learned To Be Affectionate After Losing Someone Special

    I have never been an affectionate person, mainly because of how i was raised. My father and Mother didn't show us much love growing up so how was i supposed to know how to show affection as an adult. I had a best friend that use to want to hug when she left to go about her daily...

    Affectionate & Hugs

    This is very true about me.  I am an affectionate person who loves to hug.At a point, I became very distant and didn't like it, got back my grip and I now hug.  Yay me!

    As a woman I am very affectionate

    and love to hug and kiss others; regardless of gender. I love being affectionate in public as well. I love to turn heads as I am kissing my black husband and/or others.

    Most Wouldn't Believe I Do At First, Though

    I love giving hugs. On campus we had the smoker's porch and we all became pretty good friends with each other. Once we got familiar enough, I would hug each and every female on the porch, sometimes sporadically, but always upon meeting or leaving. It was mostly friendly...

    Hug Fan
