    Always Remember This Hug.....

    I have a co worker who is like an aunt to me. I have looked after her kids for years and we aren't as close now which makes me sad. Really sad. I do question at times if she even cares about me as sometimes her behaviour says otherwise. There have been good times though and this...

    With Meaning Please.

    I never did understand Hollywood Hugs.  You know the ones, they're kinda like air kisses.  Not for me, thanks.When I take someone in my arms, or when they take me in theirs, man, woman or child, I want to feel everything about them.   I want to 'feel' their heart and soul and...

    It was a romantic evening

    and I hugged my girlfriend Anita tightly in the rain. Anita looked into my eyes and said, "Hug me once more like that, and I am yours for the rest of my life!" I retorted, "Uhh, thanks for the warning!"

    The only meaningful hugs to me are the ones I

    get from my best friend. I don't actually tell him this but; I like our hugs a lot because I like listening to his heart beat. It soothes me to know that he has a beating heart for some strange reason.

    A Big Hug After A Big Cry.

    One of the things I love more than anything in the world is for someone to hold me after a big long cry. Sitting in someone's lap, embraced in their arms, sometimes letting the final tears drip down your cheek and onto their shoulder. I feel that "warm fuzzy" feeling engulf my...

    Meaningful Hugs

    you know how sometimes, you meet someone new, or even your great-grandmother, and you go in for a hug, whether its to say hello or goodbye, and they do this weird barely-touching-you while-patting-your-back thing... and all you feel is awkwardness and disconnectedness and the...
