    Yes it’s annnoying and (to me) inappropriate. I don’t sign with hugs to guys (except DH and relatives) and other guys don’t for me. And the bottom line is you come first: if you’re not comfortable with it, he should respect you.

    Meh – I call most of my male friends sweetie, sweetheart or darling. Often use these in emails and would prob sign things of to them with hugs.

    Why is husband OK with this – because I don’t use those terms with him. He gets the better my love, my angel, skinky or emails signed off with snuggles or snugs

    not a biggy in my book

    wouldn’t bother me a bit. It’s just a word, and from what I understand it’s a fairly common and empty platitude used for signing informal messages in some parts of the world (here, people even sign emails and end phonecalls with the word “kisses”). I would only bring it up to him if you feel strongly about it. Sometimes we have to learn to get over ourselves when it comes to small stuff.

    My FI will sometimes sign off with “muah” to his good female friends. Usually its after he has made some kind of fake mean joke. Doesn’t bother me.

    I hug my male friends in person, and I also tell them I love them. Because I do. I love them as my best and oldest friends, and I show affection by hugging them. My SO doesn’t fly off the handle (or even get bothered by it) because he understands that I am a human being capable of handling a wide range of emotions and affection for other people besides him, while still remaining a faithful and loving partner to him.

    It would weird me out, probably mostly because he’s not the type of person to say that. I also just find it kind of inappropriate and off putting, depending on how close to the person I am.

    Well, if it really did happen I’d be worried because this is sooo not like my FI…but thinking about it makes me laugh because this is sooo not like my FI 🙂


    He signs off his emails and texts to me with a bunch of weird emoticons but I’m really sure I’m the only person he’d ever do that to.  And they’re not even romantic…soemtimes…usually a pizza slice, alien, chicken, devil, cup of coffee and a smiley LOL


    For awhile our phones had a groucho marx emoticon and he’d “groucho bomb” me all the time lol.
