How do you feel about hugging like in church or friend groups, etc?


Are you embarrassed by hugging and rather not and think some overdo it or is it okay and a great thing to do? What are your thoughts on this?

    Great point; it does seem to be leaning toward being a cold social world, doesn't it?

    That's good and I can understand that. I really prefer men I do not know to not hug me....

    I am a hugger too but not just anyone! lol I do feel strange hugging men I do not know and I will stick my hand out to them. Now if and when I get to know them I might hug them all the time! Well not all the time....

    Hi there, Best Commenter, Paula, Your wonderful answer pretty much sums it up how hugging is done up right in my life too! To me, hugging makes this world so much more sweeter. Sending you a virtual Hug.

    Oh thank you Eric! You sound like a spiritual hugger and these are great stories; you should do a hub about them! It would be wonderful to have a hug worry someone for years and then have to pay it back! I have been hugging for awhile now at HubPages

    Yes, respect is crucial. Remember, some are touch sensitive through no fault of their own, or maybe were abused and so keep their distance without realizing why. There are a number of reasons some are not huggers and we should not make assumptions.

    Little old ladies too; don't you just love to give them hugs? Sometimes I think some of them have maybe been a lifetime without a hug and it pleases me to let them know they are still loved! Have to be a little careful with old men though! lol
