    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.

    The average length of a hug between two people

    is 3 seconds. But researchers have discovered something fantastic. When a hug lasts 20 seconds, there is a therapeutic effect on the body and mind. The reason is that a sincere hug produces a hormone called "oxytocin", also known as the love hormone. This substance has many...

    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...
