I Would Hug a Stranger

    Of Course I Would! Xd

    I love hugs a lot, so I have a tendency to hug everyone I meet:P I've made a few friends that way and I dont think there's anything wrong with that.:] I'm really short though (5'2") so hugging tall people is a little harder 8-) but I still try anyway. I don't know... I just like...

    Random Hugs: Wouldn't It Be Great

    wouldn't it be great if there was some kind of networking site that got people together to give free hugs. You would get on the site, find a person closest to you, arrange a public meeting place, meet, hug, then go about your merry way. (Random Hug Project)

    Group Hugs! :-d

    I have hugged strangers! I love hugs! So, when I meet a kind person, even if I've known them for just a few minutes, they get a hug from me! ;-) Recently, I have started group therapy... I've only been to it twice, so far. But I enjoy it! All of the women there are so kind and...

    I was out at a bar with the hubby

    and we were chatting some folks up for the night. After a chill conversation of laughs and such when it came time to leave I gave hugs. Like, the handshake half hug bro style. I dunno. I like to hug!

    Free Hug Day!

    Like people have said before, I'd love if there were a Free Hugs day in every place around the world. It must be a really great experience, just hugging thousands of people you don't even know, and knowing you can make their day and they can make yours..

    Big Squishy Hugs!

    A hug for me is like a handshake to others.  Of course I would hug a stranger, I have and will continue to do so.  I hug everyone who enters or leaves our home ( excluding repair men, all though I did hug the guy who fixed my washer).  I have to be careful not to...

    Free Hugs!! :D

    It gets to be a bit of a ritual on scout/explorer camps really, everyone does free hugs... I love it! I just love the feeling that I may have just made someone's day that bit better, all just with a hug! :D

    Sure Would

    If they looked really unhappy and not overly menacing I get the urge occasionally. Most of the time I don't follow through with it but I can on occasions go right ahead. Depends on my mood at that very moment in time.

    This Is My Idea

    I want to make a t-shirt that says "FREE HUGS" on the front and wear it for a day, and give anyone who wants one a hug. Kind of like the sign, but a lot more easily transported ;-) I think every town should have a "Free Hug Day." We all need someone to hug...
