    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...

    Meaningful Hugs

    Alleviating Me Emotionally

    The hardest part about graduating from my University is bidding farewell to my campus ministries that I've been involved in. As I was bidding farewell to them over a sloppy joe dinner, there were several I enjoyed meaningful farewell hugs with. Most of them I enjoyed having some...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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.
