    Physical Contact

    I never understood why some people were so comfortable with hugging as a greeting. I had always felt somewhat awkward doing that with someone who wasn't my mother or close relative. I experienced one from a guy a couple weeks ago and I actually like it. I don't know why I had...

    Do You Need A Hug?

    You know how in TV programs people say, " do you need a hug" ? I wish people would say that to me in real life . Wouldn't it be great to get a hug from someone who loves you every time you are feeling down or sad?

    Hugs Cure All

    I feel so lonely here in my dorm right now, but I don't know anyone here that would give me a hug and my family and friends are hours away. And the verbal hug from my mom over the phone didn't really help.
