Best ask permission first!

People from our church meetings always hug, even the men hug each other, it's always been that way; they genuinely care for each other.

In these frozen times , getting a cuddle makes perfect sense #come here you . See you

Of course! I love hugs. People just don't like being on the receiving end with me X)

not for me Iam out

The problem is hugs always end in having sex.

Mum hated hugs

I don't really need or want hugs from any adults, or as my wife would say "you are emotionally void" However when my 6 year old gives me a hug, it is completely different, must be a bond thing

That reminds me of Christian The Lion, how after being set free he still recognised and loved his owners a year later, and even introduced them to his Lioness wife! Proper tear jerker

That's EXACTLY how I used to feel, Miles - especially the very idea of hugging another man.

Even though I came from a large family we never hugged - not even at parties or funerals.

The closest we got to a hug was at the football when the team got a goal- and even then there was an 'awkwardness'.

We wouldn't hug parents (sign of weakness/dependence?) nor hug girls - and definitely not children (poss' perv/paedo?), and most definitely not our friends.

It was some sort of unspoken cultural etiquette observed by all.

It wasn't until during a discussion with my older brother about our Dad who was slowly dying from a most horridly painful cancer, that my brother mentioned he had spoken with Dad, HUGGED him and left - I was shocked to the core.
I was stunned and staring at my brother I said "You hugged Dad?". He looked at me straight in the eye and said "Go see Dad now - we don't have time - go and hug him."
I jumped in the car, drove over, saw my Dad, didn't say much - just hugged.
God rest his soul; been hugging ever since - praise God.

We've all got different stories, Miles, but whatever it is that's stopping you from hugging - I hope and pray you overcome it - everybody needs a hug sometime, I'm sending you a 'spiritual' hug, Miles, God bless

Hugs can be wonderful but some can be very uncomfortable lol
I remember when I was married my mother in law would give me a weird hug! She'd almost hold me away from herself by my shoulders and then quickly press her boney arm against mine while kissing thin air X)
Then my Father in law did the complete reverse he'd pin my arms down by my sides in a crushing hug that often hurt, then grab my face with both hands and kiss me right on the mouth! he'd hold so tight I could never manage to turn my face to avoid his slobbery chops *judder* he would frequently slap my backside too (_;) grim!
Thank god I divorced those hugs X)
