Quote by jetfuel495
Don't squeeze too hard, especially if you're the awkward type who gets boners from hugs lasting more than ten seconds

Quote by vash_08
watch out for guys who like to touch their genitals to yours while hugging.


Quote by rosamamosa
additionally, if you're trying to cheer someone up, put your arms over theirs. if it's just a hug, go under.

this goes for boys hugging girls, by the way.


Quote by madbasslover
When you're hugging someone, don't lean into her. She will try to compensate and one way or the other you're both falling over.

Trust me.



Quote by oscar666
If its with a girl shorter than you, then its always cool when they reace right up round your neck when they're hugging you, stretching on their tippytoes. Always think its really sweet

And snug hugs are so much better than the slightly impersonal normal hugs. Get your head right in their neck. It rocks


Quote by The4thHorsemen
hm, are the one armed hugs acceptable?
I'd say only if you are carrying something, otherwise you should use both!

I've only been hugged by my parents when I was really young before they died, and my girlfriend I had through high school.

How can you try to compete with Imdeth's thread?


Hopefully people realize the importance of real life hugs over fake hugs. It's like comparing kissing to sex!

If you're a hot chick you've probably got a good chance with the lead singer or guitar player, If you're a little bit overweight, you should probably go for the drummer. If you're a dude, go for the bass player

Thus resulting in boners, making you gay.

EDIT: although, as the other guy said, it's kinda unavoidable

EDIT EDIT: Wait, why am I thinking in terms of manhugs?

floppypick, if I had seventy dollars for every time you made a thread that I actually approved of, I would probably blow it all on heroin.

This thread is aiding my addiction. So, thanks a lot

Aww.

If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

Excellent point, except when you're hugging a girl who is around 8 inches smaller than you are, which was nuts because I'm only 5'8"

Me either, I savor it.

It becomes a problem though, when you meet someone else who won't pull back, and then you end up in an awkwardly long hug. But im not complaining


Oh how I miss that.

I knew a girl who was into long hugs. It was so great, man. I love long hugs, myself. I'm not one of those "put the arms around and then get the hell out of there" types.

i never pull back, and i used to have a friend who wouldn't either. it eventually became a competition on who could pull back last, so sometimes we'd end up walking like that for a while.

I hear you on that one. It's so relaxing, isn't it? Stress just melts away

Long hugs are the ****.
Also, I don't like it when people hug too lightly. There exists a perfect middle ground between constriction and loosely embracing, and when it is hit, something beautiful happens.

i actually like hugs that are a little too tight. of course, i need to be able to breathe, but up til that point, the snugger the better!

No kidding, I know this one girl who apparently likes how I hug, well she likes long hugs.

It was weird the first time, not in a bad way but more... "oh you're not done yet.." kind of way.

List updated!

All I have to say is that, I never half ass a hug. And I dont like it when people give halfassed hugs. Make it proper! Not one standing like 3 feet away from each other, nothing too short, and its gotta be perfectly snug.

When you're a lot taller then the person you're hugging it will be very difficult to get that 'perfect' hug.
It will take a lot of practice with that person, but eventually with a lot of hugging you can get there.

All I can suggest is probably bend over instead of bending your knees, so don't squat down.

Fake hugs are nearly as awesome as real life hugs
The hugging thread rules. This, not as much.
Although i will supply a pearl of wisdom
If someone wants a hug off you, they want it because its you, so hug however you feel like it. If its from you, thats all they want

I'm never the person who pulls back from the hug

Assholes...

Me neither.
But it would be awkward if i was hugging a non-pullerbacker and it went on for ages expecting them to pull back.

Now I think about it, I havent hugged a girl in so long. Life isnt what it used to be
