The word "-hugs-" occurs a lot online, but do any of us really do this in real life?

I.. only used to because the others were, that was five years ago and now... just don't do it. What about you? :3

I usually love giving my friends hugs, but they're the sort that doesn't really want to be hugged unless they're feeling really low. So I try not to do it often, but they seem to love hugging me on occasions.

Sometimes, you just get that feeling that you want someone to embrace you. For me, this happens more or less for hours on end.

I hugged one of my friends who graduated. It was nice considering I didn't have a hug before that for well over a year.

Not really, I've hugged girls, but my friends and I are the... pat on the back kind of people. Hugs are just too awkward.

I don't like contact with people at all. So no, I don't go out of my to do something I don't enjoy. There are a few that like it, I don't push 'em away... I'm not a jerk :3 Just not a fan...

Rokusasu
September 2nd, 2009, 01:45 AM
Yes, because hugs don't cost anything to give and they're an expression of me being comfortable with someone. :D

The guys that I hung out with at my old school were the hi-5 or knuckle type. With the girls that's a whole different story, I'll gladly hug them if they want and that's that. ^^

Lol, me and my friends usually hug each other xD
We're kinda used to it by now.

I like too and my friends that are girls will mostly hug back but the boys are sceptical xD

September 2nd, 2009, 03:33 AM
Me and my friends give each other a quick hug to say hi or bye or if they are feeling really blue. ^_^

What? Of course I do! I love them~ : 3

I like hugging my friends~

I mean, we're not like hugging every second, but we like to hug when we first see each-other in the morning and when we say goodbye in the afternoon.

Yes, I used to hug a few of my friends.
It became an ongoing thing that I would hug one of them more often, after one of the teachers called him his "huggable friend". xD

September 2nd, 2009, 05:12 AM
lol no. Well, not my main guy friends, girls sometimes run up and hug me if they see me in a store or something.

I'll hug anyone who looks like they could do with one. Yes indeedy.

Lady Gaga
September 2nd, 2009, 05:16 AM
Well, im the huggable type, but not that often. But i guess i get hugged/hug more than often than others so...
Also, during the summer, whever me and my best friend got together, wqe would always give each other a big hug =D

Daydream
September 2nd, 2009, 06:38 AM
Yesssums. All the time! Seeing as how I'm gay and my main friends are girls. XD We don't see anything wrong with it. Although, the straight guys look worried if I hug them. o.o

Drew
September 2nd, 2009, 07:03 AM
They hug me.

I don't hug them.

I'm not a very huggy person, but I guess I like the fact that they do care enough to hug me, if that makes sense. xD; Like, I'm not gonna go "EW. NO TOUCHIE." and run from them..

My friends are all massive hug monsters who insist on giving hugs every time they see someone or something worth hugging.

So, not really. XD;;

I always do a *huggles* on pc eith my best ACTUAL real friend I see a lol :D

Michii
September 2nd, 2009, 08:32 AM
I'm not much of a huggy person. I used to hate physical contact because it would make me blush (still does, for some reason), and I still flinch when someone gets near me. Iono why, but I'm getting over it. I hug people now from time to time. I remember once I walked to my friend and said "Can I have a hug?" and he's like "sure" but then said "wait, what are you going to do to me?" because I don't hug people. It offended me and then I got my hug and blushed. ^^;

Serene Grace
September 2nd, 2009, 08:57 AM
I don't really do much hugging. I'm fine though if any of my friends want to hug me.

Patchy
September 2nd, 2009, 09:14 AM
I'm pretty sure every single one of my guy friends I hang out with outside school is bi, so yeah I hug them. My girl friends are huggable too, so yay for hugs. :3

I'm not short of my three a day anyway!

icomeanon6
September 2nd, 2009, 09:24 AM
If that friend happens to be a girl, sure. The laudable amount of testosterone coursing though my veins won't allow me to hug a guy.

Toshiro.
September 2nd, 2009, 11:19 AM
If my friends want to hug me, sure, I let them.

Camisado
September 2nd, 2009, 11:31 AM
Yes, I think it's nice. =x

I hug my close female friends, but I don't tend to hug my male friends unless they start it. I got cuddles from my guy friends at college whenever I was upset, though. =3

And of course, I hug and/or cuddle my boyfriend. He counts as a friend too.

Sometimes. I do like hugging my best friend Tyler. XD I don't see my rl friends very often though. They are always busy. :<

I hug all my friends regardless of their gender. :3

I'm embracive, you could say.

Lo-chan
September 2nd, 2009, 03:52 PM
Not really anymore. I like hugs, but I don't love them and I don't need them everyday. Even though you are considered healthy if you get ten hugs a day... Yeah, defiantly not healthy. I find it awkward hugging most people and most of my friends are the "no touchy" types.

Amachi
September 2nd, 2009, 03:57 PM
I like hugs. Hugs are great. I give them fairly often, and I receive them too, which is always great.

Your life rules. D:

I hang out with the hands-off people, usually. I don't mind hugs as much as I used to, but nobody's willing to accept one or give one. ;~;

I hug my girl buddies. The guys at my school are too self conscious to hug each other. lol.

In a totally non-gay way, I hug and butt-tap all my best guy friends. XD And I definitely hug all my girl friends. ^^" (2 words)

Sora
September 2nd, 2009, 08:39 PM
I hug my friends all the time. 8D Especially the ones who like being hugged. I have a few friends who don't like being hugged too much, but I try not to hug them. I make it up with my friends who do enjoy hugging, though~ ♥

September 2nd, 2009, 10:07 PM
It's not a very manly thing to do, and if I did, I'd probably be called a fag by my friends. D8

Mitchman
September 3rd, 2009, 03:47 AM
Yes. But only the girls which are like 10 or so? So yeah lots of hugs during the day.

Synaesthesia
September 3rd, 2009, 06:53 PM
Why wouldn't you hug IRL.. XD It's not like back in grade 2 when hugging someone of the opposite sex meant you were in love with them. I don't know about anyone else, but a hug upon meeting, departing, or just about any time is pretty normal among me and my friends. I love hugs and so do they so it works it perfectly! :3

Caelus
September 3rd, 2009, 07:47 PM
I'm not the type that would hug people, and outside of family I don't think I've ever started one either, but if someone wants one then I'm open, even if doing it on a guy can be really awkward for me.

So yes.

Aurafire

September 5th, 2009, 06:13 AM
Do I hug my IRL friends?
No. That's because I don't have any.
I love hugs, but in real life I'm not that close to anyone, and nobody is willing to exchange hugs with me anyways... :(

Come to think of it, the only person that comes to my memory of hugging in real life is my bro, and that's it... :(

Yes, because hugs don't cost anything to give and they're an expression of me being comfortable with someone. :D
That's so true.


xD my whole school is like a hug orgy :p hugs all around ~(^n^)~
I wish to join this school you speak of, lol. :)

xxFrozenFlower
September 5th, 2009, 07:06 AM
The laudable amount of testosterone coursing though my veins won't allow me to hug a guy.

Win.

Anyways, most of my friends aren't exactly the huggy type. I wouldn't say I am either. But there are some reaaally girly-girls who practically LIVE off the energy that hugs give them, haha~
So if they want to hug me /for a valid reason/ (birthday, holiday, end of school, beginning of school, etc) it's okay.
As for guys... kinda awkward, lol. I dunno why, but it feels weird, even though I know not all guys who give out friendly hugs are horrible pervs.
But I generally turn them down with a joke. *squirms* D:

OokamiShipper
September 5th, 2009, 07:14 AM
Dunno about you, but I sure do. Usually it's on 'special occasions' like the last day of school or when someone's upset. ^^

Cherrim
September 5th, 2009, 08:29 AM
...not often, no. :( I will when it's appropriate, like when saying good bye for an extended period of time (most of my friends don't live near me anymore~) but otherwise I'm not really a touchy-feely kind of person. I don't show affection that much so random hugging is definitely out of the picture.

Alli
September 5th, 2009, 08:57 AM
I hug them...but some people I just can't stand hugging, especially friends you don't talk to that much when you're trying to go to your next class. I also don't like it when people say hey in the hallway. I'm just trying to get to class...no hugs and heys for me, k thx.

I only hug my close friends, a.k.a. the ones who know where I live.

I hug my friends every now and then. Only usually when they/I'm upset.
Otherwise we rarely do. o_o I'm not to bothered about hugging anyways. :3

No, you fail
September 5th, 2009, 11:29 AM
ehhh here's how it goes for me

girlfriend's i hug
friend's that are guy's it's a just a high five or a simple head nod.

Nothing wrong with a kind, caring and friendly embrace to show how much you care. ^_^
(That being said, I don't really have any friends who are boys, so it might be different with boys. Meh, I dunno. XD)

Uh, no. xD Funny this is a topic, today while waiting for buses after school my friend and I saw some friends hugging and she went "I wish I was close enough to my friends to do that." Most awkward moment, ever. I'm also just generally not that comfortable with being that close to people unless it's family, or a boyfriend or something. Strangely enough like the OP said, I *hug* all my online friends.

Well aside from before I was dating my ex. We were best friends and we always hugged each other. It's apparent to me now that we were doing it just to be close to each other. XD

N-not often. ;_; Collectively, my friends aren't really huggy people, so there are a few will even carry out "Free hug" day but most others... it just seems taboo. I used to have all really huggy friends that were awesome-sauce-who-cares-about-personal-space people (without it being uncomfortable XD) but alas, keeping in contact with them has dulled as we've gotten older. ;;;;;;;;;;;;;; *sob*

No I don't give hugs since I find it likely my friends might find it uncomfortable for me to hug them.

But one of my friends always hugs me when he's happy or when we get excited about something and I don't really mind.

Hamako-chan

Sometimes for no reason, they don't mind at all ^^

Of course I do.

This is one of the many "I have nothing to say but I'm gonna make a thread about anything I can possibly think of" threads.

Anyway. I hug my female friends, or rather, they hug me. Don't really hug my guy friends though, that's kinda homo-erotic. We just give each other nice friendly pats on the ass.

dotKarma
September 23rd, 2009, 01:41 PM
Yep. Pretty much only one or two of my friends, though.

Lana.
September 23rd, 2009, 06:26 PM
Erm. Friends? Not really. My classmates and I are at the stage where if you hug someone, there's someone else watching and then they make some sort of immature comment.

My cousin, though, my best friend ever, is an exception. She gets a hug just because I can hug her. =3

Honest
October 13th, 2009, 12:50 PM
Well, They gotta kissing thread, a dance thread, along with a closed sex hread

But huggin is different. Thats becuase it is easier to do than huggingfor some people, and other's harder.

I take it all of you have hugged at least one person (tick tock tick tock) ...your parents?

Lolz, well, the point of this thread is, what is your few on hugs, like is it better then a kiss, or vise versa, and whom to you is hugging taboo with? And other stuff that falls in this line.

And one last thing... what do you think about guys hugging guys? *coughfreehugsguyatmyschoolisfreakingmeoutcough*

Rokusasu
October 13th, 2009, 01:22 PM
Hugs are magical. <3 I love hugging people, so long as they're comfortable with me hugging them. XD; You can hug someone for ages, because unlike with kissing, you can still breathe. :3

And there's nothing wrong with guys hugging guys. o:

twocows
October 13th, 2009, 01:46 PM
I feel awkward when people hug me, and I don't hug other people. It's probably a culture thing. I feel like my personal space is being violated when someone hugs me, and I feel like I'm violating theirs if I try to hug them.

I take full credit for that one... xD
I disagreed with the mods on that one. Why is sex such a taboo in society? I just don't get it. It's fine to see people slaughter each other in movies and games in the most gruesome ways possible, but throw in the slightest bit of nudity and Fox News has some dumb jerk calling your game a porno simulator that's destroying the fragile minds of our nation's children (for the record, I didn't like Mass Effect anyway). :/ I'm not saying violence should be tabooed, I'm just saying that it's absurd that it isn't and sex is (since we all know it's better to stab someone than to have sex with them, right?).

Hugs are the best thing you could ever invent! I love them... but I don't hug many people at school because they would probably think I'm a bit weird...

I have no problem hugging friends if I feel they need it or I haven't seen them for awhile. I'm not hug-happy, but I don't mind them. I hug my family a lot.

As for taboos, pretty much anyone I don't know really well. As for guys hugging other guys... *shrug* I really don't care.

Seriously, I love hugs.
Really, sometimes I just think to myself "Huh. A hug would sound good to me right now."

I give hugs to my friend Meggie becaude she likes them and allows me to give her hugs all the time.
She's like my hug outlet.

I really need more people to hug.

Hugging better than kissing?
Poissibly. I haven't really kissed anyone before, but Hugging seems more affectionate to me. :3

Guys hugging guys?
I'm gay, you tell me. T_T

poopnoodle

I never said there was anything wrong with that.

But if your constantly asking for free hugs to guys and your a guy, it gets disturbing. xD

Alli
October 13th, 2009, 03:11 PM
I only like hugging the person who belongs in my arms, along with a few close friends. I hate it when people I'm not remotely close to hug me. I'll e-hug people, but in person...eh...

However, if I saw a PC buddy in person, I might just glomp them.

edit; Kissing > Hugging, but I think it depends on the situation.

NarutoActor
October 13th, 2009, 03:14 PM
hugs they come to me, I walk into school or church and a friend sees me (a girl) and gives me a hug. Acorse a Kiss is better but I dont think I want to kiss every girl I see. Also I dont have a problem with huging a guy if he is a close friend but If I justmet him its just plain weird

Caelus
October 13th, 2009, 03:26 PM
what is your few on hugs: Everyone day there's a good chance I'll hug both my parents, so pretty often. That is the question, right?


is it better then a kiss, or vise versa : Never had an actual kiss...
Depends on the situation, but it's a good alternative I guess.


whom to you is hugging taboo with? No one


what do you think about guys hugging guys? I have no problem with it. And actually if something big happened we end up hugging any nearby friends, so again I don't have any problems with it.

LEXAcide
October 13th, 2009, 03:27 PM
hmm... hugs...

I have no problem with hugging. I would hug any girl to say hi, and any blood relative guy. Since I am half mexican, I was taught that hugging is no problem at all. I noticed that here in America, its quite the opposite it seems. If a guy hugs a guy, its a **** alert. Not there.

Vigilante
October 13th, 2009, 04:07 PM
For some reason, I'm not really a "huggy" person. It just feels weird (probably 'cuz up until this year no one actually gave me hugs) and guys hugging guys is no different than guys and girls or girls and girls. I do feel more comfortable hugging girls though.

Timbjerr
October 13th, 2009, 04:37 PM
It's probably a cultural thing for me because my family hugs eachother all the time as a greeting and a farewell gesture, even guy-on-guy and girl-on-girl hugging aren't all that shocking in my mind...

As such, I prefer receiving and distributing hugs to kissing. >_<

what is your few on hugs
Does... not... compute...

But if you mean to ask about my view on hugs, then I'll just say that I love hugs!!
I don't like the idea of hugging just anybody, though... I like it when it's with people I know and I like.

is it better then a kiss, or vise versa
For me, I really can't say one is better than the other. Both have their own places.
I can hug anyone I like, but my kiss is reserved for that special someone, lol.
Moreover, I don't have any experience of kissing, so I wouldn't really know...

whom to you is hugging taboo with?
People I hate/don't like.
Other than that, nobody...

what do you think about guys hugging guys?
It's perfectly fine. What might be wrong with this?


I feel awkward when people hug me, and I don't hug other people. It's probably a culture thing. I feel like my personal space is being violated when someone hugs me, and I feel like I'm violating theirs if I try to hug them.
I've noticed that you have a shortage of cute and lovely feelings in yourself, XD. That's one different view you got there...
What if the other person wants a hug from you? Would you still feel awkward?

I disagreed with the mods on that one. Why is sex such a taboo in society? I just don't get it. It's fine to see people slaughter each other in movies and games in the most gruesome ways possible, but throw in the slightest bit of nudity and Fox News has some dumb jerk calling your game a porno simulator that's destroying the fragile minds of our nation's children (for the record, I didn't like Mass Effect anyway). :/ I'm not saying violence should be tabooed, I'm just saying that it's absurd that it isn't and sex is (since we all know it's better to stab someone than to have sex with them, right?).
Just wanted to say that I agree to this point.

I really don't like hugging anyone as I used to ):
You sound like you need a hug to start liking hugs again, lol!

Gawd, I love hugs. They're pretty amazing. ^.^

When I'm feeling pretty down, I just open up my arms and normally one of my friends rushes to get there and hug me. They make me feel so much better.

Synaesthesia
October 14th, 2009, 12:31 PM
That free hugs guy at your school probably just feels lonely and wants a lot of hugs, haha.

Anyway, I personally find that hugging is more intimate. I love to kiss, but hugging is just so...perfect. When you're holding the person who means the most to you in your arms, keeping them close to you and never wanting to let go, it seems like more of a way to say "I love you" than to press your lips to the other. But hey, kissing and hugging can be done at the same time.

And just as hugs are super intimate, they can also be incredibly friendly. So versatile and adaptable, these things are. :P I hug all my friends to say goodbye or hello or if I just wanna hug them. n_n hugs are so cheerful and friendly.

AND AND AND hugs are perfect when someone is feeling down. You don't even need to say anything, don't have to ask them why they're crying or upset, you just gotta hug them. That alone helps so much.

I've actually never hugged my parents, the first time I had ever gotten a hug was when I was 14 from this girl in nearly all my classes. Then I got one from another girl and now all the males like to hug me -_-.

I hug everyone. ;p

It's me and my friends' way of saying hi and bye, including my guy friends. Hugs are awesome.

I've found that hugs are much more pleasurable than kisses. I don't know why, but I always prefer to be embraced by someone opposed to having someone's lips touch against my own. It gives me a sense of comfort that kissing just doesn't give me. I can't remember the last time I got a hug that meant something to me, unfortunately. I know the last hug that did was from my mother. Maybe I'm just longing for one.

And one last thing... what do you think about guys hugging guys? *coughfreehugsguyatmyschoolisfreakingmeoutcough*
Don't worry, he's not going to try to get in your pants or anything... :|

Two guys don't have to be homosexual to show affection of eachother. I mean, seriously. Don't be so closed minded.

I don't hug guys. I hug girls everyday, though. ;D

My friend and his other "emo" friends hug each other. They could use the support. ;(

Ah, the wonders of hugging... one of the best things we can do. I hug all those that I know, at least once each time I see them. I also love to e-hug people very frequently. It's feels nice. :)

Guy-guy hug; eh, not good for me. Kthnx.

Hugs are so much better than kissing or dancing but maybe not sex.

They're so warm and make you feel loved. 8D

I'm too socially awkward for hugs. I'll hug at the wrong moments, or I'll hug someone who doesn't know me to be kind, but I never seem to get it right klgsjgfdk
I don't mind others hugging me though, that's nice. I'm just no good at it.

of course, there's always internet hugs. I'm really good at internet hugs! :v

It seems that some people think of hugging as something more than emotional reassurance. That's all it is; it's nothing to do with being attracted to the person in any way. To hug someone, or to be hugged, is to assure/be assured, which is why, as people have said, you get a nice warm sensation.

Coming from a straight guy, there's nothing wrong with a guy hugging another. As has been said, it is close-minded for people to think that for males to show affection to others is automatically homosexual. I hug both my male and female friends, either when I'm joking around or when I'm trying to comfort them.

I love hugs! They're just so quick and easy, and unlike kissing, school admins don't get all uptight about it. (I actually got one today, so there, it does make people feel good) plus, its kind of hard to be a bad hugger.

As for the whole guys-hugging thing, it's an epidemic at my school but you get used to it, especially if you do any sports, were group hugs are pretty much mandatory after scores or you win a race. Besides, it's better then having your ass smacked or your pecs grabbed by a male teammate or random dude.

Hugging random people at the airport/trainstation/on the street/at a store = epic win.

I love hugging everyone! It's just that there are moments where hugging them would be either awkward or uncomfortable.

I don't. Not because I don't like them, but I'm worried they may not be socially acceptable. Glad to see that I'm wrong on that account :)

Still, I'm not quite up to where I'll start hugging random people XD

Barely ever do I get to hug someone, besides family(which includes cousins, parents, etc). Nobody really likes me.

Yes, I hug my friends! Have been known to sit and cuddle too.
If people are so insecure that they have to pick on others who arn't then.. I guess I pity them, must suck being scared to give someone a hug, heh.
The only time I might try to avoid it is in my house, because I can't stand how thrilled my mother looks when she sees me hugging a male friend.

I hardly ever hug my family though, I don't feel at all comfortable around them.

The last time I hugged someone, was when I was in 3rd grade. The last week of school, and the person I hugged was not going to be in my school next year. So I gave her, yes her, a hug. Lol, her expression was like: 'wtf.' So I never did that again. Besides, I don't even say -hugs- online. Like, wtf.

If someone asks for a hug, then sure I don't have a problem. But I've never really been known to just 'give' someone a hug without any warning. That's just... creepy. But yeah, like I said; I'm not against them or anything.

I am a very huggable person. I hug pretty much all my female friends, and even my guy friends if I haven't seen them in a while.

I don't really hug my friends, guys or girls, unless it's in public and we're making people feel extremely awkward.

No, not really.

I kinda do this macho half-handshake, half-hug thing though. Grown men hugging is kinda weird.

I don't have many RL friends, so that means I don't hug much. In fact, I rarely get hugs.

Rarely, unless it's a relative and I need to be polite. I almost never initiate a hug and most of my friends aren't really clingy people.
