    No one's ever really hugged me much my life,

    except as a very young child. I've always missed that feeling, and hate that I can only give and receive very light, in genuine hugs. Everything in my life has been going by so fast, and I feel as though I'll never catch up. I just want someone to hold me tight and make me...

    warms the heart; It welcomes us back home And makes it easier to part A hug's a way to share the joy And sad times we go through, Or just a way for friends to say They like you 'cause you're you Hugs are meant for anyone For whom we really care, From your grandma to your...

    Love To Be Hugged, Especially Huggled

    I love being hugged, especially huggled. I could always use a hug or a huggle. I made up the saying "huggle" and normally it's a thing I do with my bestie. If you don't know what a huggle is, it's a cross between a hug and cuddling. I love hugs and huggles! :D

    I've never been a hugger,

    when most people try to hug me I back away. But I really really just need a hug. I want someone to just hug me tightly like they won't let me go while I cry. Just for comfort for once. I just really really need a hug.
