I Hug Differently Depending On Who It Is I Am Hugging

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 368 People

    My Hugs Depend Both On The Situation And The Person.

    I'm the huggiest person you'll probably ever meet. If you let me, I'd hold on basically until I'm shoved off. But that's usually only if I genuinely like you. My usual hug chart goes something like this though. People I don't really know but are comfortable with hugs get a light...

    Some Are Warmer Than Others

    If I feel strongly about you I will hold on tight and give you a long embrace. If you are someone I am not comfortable with it will be a shorter and more gentle,awkward hug. Of course,if the person is very precious to me and giving me(or I them)comfort the embrace is more intense...

    And it also depends on the situation. I tend to hug tightly and enjoy rib crushing hugs back If in sympathy, it is a gentle hug With acquaintances, it is a gentle and brief hug With not so close friends and relatives, a hug with a brief kiss on the cheek With those I...

    I Received A Special Hug From My Relatives

    I got to see some relatives I had not seen since 1992. The hug and hand shakes where very special to me. We all cried and promised to stay in touch. I  have their addresses, now.

    Yes, I Do

    I will usually respond in kind to the person I am hugging.  Most times if its males, they tend to be more forceful and bodyconforming, but brief, depending on whether or not he is attracted to me.  Females, tend to be a more kind, delicate embrace and...

    I'm a Hugger...

    I really have no problem at all with hugging people. I love to hug people, it makes them smile. Though it really depends on who it is, and it is really obvious. There's the people who are more aquaintances than anything else, and they get more of a quick light hug. The people who...

    My Love Of Hugs And Anything Huggable <3

    I love hugging, cuddling, and just generally being affectionate. Recently, I've learned to enjoy life more and, rather than refuse some experiences as I used to before, I have learned to experience and enjoy everything differently. That definitely goes for hugs! Here are a few...

    A Hug Is Special

    I hug accoring to who it is.  A person I just met might get a quick hug, a family member a longer hug, a close friend body to body hug and a lover, a long slow hug.  I hug some of my clients because they are huggers like me.  Meeting other massage ...

    It Totally Depends On the Person and the Circumstance

    I am not the person who goes around and hugs everyone just for the sake of it. I think that hugging someone is something personal and to me it has meaning. I hug close friends and family. If it is a good-bye hug it is often a one-arm hug and short. If the other person is going...

    It Definitely Depends.

    If I'm hugging somebody I kinda lean in with half of me, and I don't squeeze and I feel very awkward. If I'm hugging my parents I squeeze on and cling to them. If I'm hugging the babies then I pick them up and squeeze them and kiss them all over.  Lol! I live for those...

    Different But All With Love <3

    If I hug my parents, I snuggle into their tall bodies and let them hug me. If I hug my friends (who are girls) I usually hug them and then pick them off the floor so that they squeal :D I don't hug my friend who's a boy cause he doesn't like being hugged and I accept that. My...
