    A Variety Of Ways

    Not all hugs are created equally. I have a few hugs in my repertoire. Which one I use depends on how well I know a person and honestly, how much I feel for them. There's the sideways hug. I use this one for people I don't actually know but they insist on a hug. The trick to the...

    Hugs Are Awesome!

    A hug makes it hard to fight, it excites, comforts, reassures, softens a blow and boosts a great moment into a treasured one. I was built to hug and you are always welcome. Hugs and Cyber-hugs to everybody.

    I Just Wanna Breathe

    Without that lump choking me. It's an invisible lump or gash gnawing at my soul. Tearing up my insides and letting no love wash over me. I want sobriety to stay so bad. Yet I crave that substance so ******* bad it hurts. It just hurts so bad. It's that simple. Hold me.

    A Tight Squeeze

    Sometimes when I really really like someone I just want to squeeze them ridiculously hard so they squish into me!

    I love virtual and real life hugs.  I love to hug my friends and family, showing them that I care deeply.  Who is your favorite person to hug?

    It's As Close As You Can Get Without, You Know.

    Even with clothes on, it's a great way to show someone how much you like them.  Having a warm body smashed into mine solves some of my other problems too.  Or, rather, creates new problems all their own.  Please stay around for a nice, long hug.
