    Hugs Ease Pain

    I've never been a super touchy-feely person, but as I've gotten older, I've started really wanting more physical affection. I had this friend a couple of years ago who was very physical--always wanted to hug me, or sit close to me, or cuddle with me. At first it was really...

    Actual Hugs. (no Offense)

    I need an actual hug, most of my days, because I've been down a lot lately. And for some odd reason, I ne'er get hugged out here. :/ I could use one now too.

    Some Day

    I love being hugged, yet it doesnt happen that often. The warm safe feeling feels amazing, I wish I felt that with someone special.

    I Would..

     If I was hugged right now. I would probably feel a little bit better  but not all the way.. Just to be hugged and someone to tell me everything is going to be alright..

    Love Hugs

    It's been so long since I've had a proper hug. Not just a hello one when I haven't seen someone for ages or something. I love hugs so much but there's never anyone there to give me one anymore.

    I Really Needed That

    When someone hugs me I always get this feeling like I really needed that despite not realising that I did.  If that makes sense.  I wish I had someone special to hug!

    Yes Please...

    A Hug means, someone cares about you enough to make you see it.   A Hug can stand for a sense of security, a place to make you feel like everything can be okay. I'd Kill for a real life Hug. Someone just to wrap their arms around me, and assure me that eventually...

    I Don't Get It With One Of My Friends - She Hates Hugs!

    My best friend hates hugs. Which is sad. Because I have come to really like them and I love my best friend so much that I wish she would hug me. But she hates them. The reason for this is because she says that she is quite manly and then refuses hugs. I still try to hug her...

    Compare

    I can't remember the last acceptable hug I've had. Actually I can and it was three-four years ago, a man who was sort of an addopted father gave me one of the best hugs! And i've yet to have another to compare.

    there are times, when you need someone.

    Your mom, dad, brother, sister, friend... or just a stranger that comes and says "everything will be ok... hang on..." while hugging me... maybe it´s just me, but i would like to be in someones arms right now...

    Some Need a Hug. I Neeed a Hug.

    I like hugs. I'd start off the day, a meeting, whatever with a hug. A round of hugs for everyone. Course, sadly, not everybody feels the same way. When I think of hugs for some reason I think about an old song from years andd years ago. For me it says it all.   Hold Me...

    Just A Hug

    It sometimes bothers me if I go a day without a hug. Hugs can make even the worst of days seem a little better. I want to be hugged. Actually, I think I need to be hugged.

    I Give Good Hugs

    I've been struggling with falling asleep lately, and I've been trying to figure out why that is. I just stay up surfing the internet or reading, and I'm so exhausted at work. The other night I laid in bed thinking about how much I wanted to feel someone next to me and I realized...

    Not The Most Tactile But Still Want Hugs

    I'm not the most tactile of people and haven't grown up in a very tactile environment.  But sometimes I just need a big bear hug.

    I Love Hugs...

    Hugs are the best. You can tell a lot about a person from the way they hug, and a lot about how they think about you. Hugging is one of my favorite things to do! ^__^

    Why Can't You Hug Me?

    All I want is a hug and some love and affection from my husband, but I don't think I will ever get that again as he has fallen in love with someone he has met through EP and has been secretly emailing her for 6 months. My world is shattered.

    I Want to Be Hugged

    It may sound petty to most, but all I want is a few decent hugs. I honestly cannot remember my last real hug. It's quite sad really, I mean sure I meet people, you greet them with a kiss on the cheek, sometimes a half hug, but I never get a decent tight hug. Do you ever long to...

    When The World Stands Still

    Somehow a hug can close out the world around us and envelop us in the rapture of soul sharing, heart throbbing intimacy. A hug can shower us, warm us, and refresh us for another day in the wide, wide world. I miss the hugs of childhood, the hugs of teen exuberance, the hugs of 2...
