I don't hug a lot, but the people I like, I hug. Sometimes, a lot.
Been so long I cannot even recall what they feel like. sad but true.
Social conventions have always confused me. I enjoy a good handshake from a male friend but have always been turned off by the need to shake the hands of multiple strangers, especially in restaurants. Do we really do this to prove that we have no weapons? I’ll take a hug from a close female friend but I don’t want a handshake from a female that I’m doing business with. Is it sexist that I was taught to treat women differently from men? Blame my mother. I’ll take a women’s hand when offered, but never engage like I would with a man. So I guess I’m a no, if I don’t know you then you can keep your distance.
If we ever meet, you’re getting a hug and pick-up! Boom!
Maybe I am the salmon swimming upstream but no I don't. Can't say I ever remember volunteering a hug. I'll take them from a select group of people but not something I care for. My wife likes to call me Red Forman. Can't say I disagree.
I'm not going to miss casual huggers, especially people I barely know.
The people I want to hug, I'll take the risk, but I seldom initiate a hug.
Yes and I miss my parents most. I would have seen them twice in the past two months as I fly home monthly to check on them but am staying away because of the pandemic. Fortunstely they have a good collection of regular caregivers.
Nope, I'm a hugger.
Not missing it here.
In fact who ever started that hug every time we meet and leave?
Oh, its been 2 minutes since I saw you last, lets hug.
I assume that Boom is your spine snapping in half. You do know I'm almost 6 feet tall and have a body like a linebacker who loves his cheeseburgers?
I'm 6'5, 240lbs, I got this!
I didn't come from a "hugging family", but I married into one and I like it... and I miss it. I'm willing to sacrifice it to overcome the current situation.
Am I a complete asshole if I consider not having to hug people to be a silver lining?
It's the only time I get to smell a girl's hair.
You can hug your cat. If I tried this I would end up with first degree, itchy cat scratches.
I saw my nieces last weekend for the first time since this all started. It was TORTURE not to hug them
Seems pretty typical for a misanthrope.
Heck yeah. A good bro-hug or a huge with the opposite sex I haven’t seen in a while...missing the human connections.
i tend to hung my girl-friends or co-workers who i am close with. i dunno if its strange but i dont like hugging family or random people. maybe because i come from a dysfunctional family?
