LOL I am the most awkward hugger EVER because I can never make up my mind whether I’m going to hug them across the back or around the shoulders or under the shoulders or whatever, so usually I just sort of grab onto them wherever and then do that awkward head bob to avoid bonking them in the head.

No hugging!! I actually kind of avoid it when we’re leaving my Father-In-Law and FMIL’s house. I wish I could just say goodbye without the hug!

I’m a hugger usually, but I can definitely understand why people are not!  It’s the people that try to kiss me – I am not ok with that.

I HUG EVERYONE.

Seriously, it’s really bad! Girls that don’t know me well have accused me of flirting because I love to hug!! Fiance knows this though and just laughs when he hears about my “flirting”.

I love hugging Fiance and my mom and dad, and that’s it. Not my sister, my grandma or anyone else. I do the one-armed pat on the back thing, too except with my designated hug-friendly people.

Ah!  I hate hugging!  I always leave a strange hugging encounter feeling somewhat violated.  I’m okay with hugging close friends, family, and Fiance but that’s IT nobody else, and I so hate it when people I barely know want to hug me.  Or co-workers.  Ack

I hate being touched in general! Future Mother-In-Law is a touchy feely type of person and always finds a way to play with my hair, rub my arm, hug me, kiss my cheek, etc. Fiance has told her numerous time to stop, but she never does. It freaks me out!

I don’t like to hug but both my family and FI’s family like to hug! I don’t feel the need to touch other people, not that I think they are gross or anything, but we just don’t need to touch.

But, when I do hug I pat people on the back. I have no idea why but I have been doing it since I was a baby (seriously a baby.) People in my family pat each other on the back, but no one in FI’s family does.

I was never much of a hugger, but all of my SO’s friends (well the girls in the circle) are BIG huggers, every time we say hello and goodbye, there’s a hug involved… so I’ve gotten used to it and actually like it now 🙂

@Meealissa: Haha sorry. I like to attack strangers with hugs. The first time I met one of my bridesmaids I gave her a huge hug. To this day she still talks about how awkward she felt when this random girl gave her a hug. 😉

I’m big on my personal space, so I’m not a fan of hugging or kissing (unless it’s my hubby or nephews!).  Hubby’s family is big on hugs and the 2 kisses thing, and there’s a lot of them, so I always hate the “hi” and “goodbyes” at family parties.
