The Art of Hugging

Postby JustDucky (132308143) » Wed Aug 07, 2019 8:44 pm

Does anyone else overthink this simple gesture of affection? Is it even a gesture I don't know. All I know is lately when someone hugs me I'm like oh no It's happening. It was said to me I looked as if I'm about to hug a cactus. I don't know where to put the hands and if I place it too high will it be uncomfortable? will it be weird? Do I embrace longer? Friendly hugs with friends at an event or a goodbye hug. I have social anxiety so yeah :haha: :eh: :eh:

'Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take

I actually love hugs, there's some kind of weird emotional fulfillment behind them that I can't figure out. Of course, I don't run around giving random people hugs, just the ones i'm exceptionally close to, that would be my mom and whoever my girlfriend is at the time. :hug: :hug: :hug:

Yeah! I actually read that It does increase oxytocin which makes us feel better in some cases. I know I always feel better when I get one. It was just something I was thinking so yeah. :haha: :eh: I love hugs too. I think I'm learning to love them I just gotta get past the overthinking.

I've always hated being hugged. My family thinks it's funny and force hug me, and not just a gentle one, I always get a big fat long extended rocking bear hug.

My entire family hugs and kisses If we haven't seen each other for awhile many of us kiss on the lips not just the cheeks men woman kids If we didnt or miss someone theyd ask wtf wrong COME HERE
Everyone coming in has to make the rounds then we all drink.

They do it because they know I hate it and laugh at me because I stiffen up as soon as I see them coming in for a hug. It's just a way of teasing. Teasing with hugs. My family is so horrible ;) :haha:

Virtual hugs are ok but real life hugs no. And please no hugging while wearing sleeveless shirts. I don't want the person's sweaty armpit hair sticking to me. Bleagchhhh.
