Are you a hugger or do you need your space?

Are you the kind of person who needs to hug everyone you know, or are you the kind of person who would rather that everyone else just kept their distance?

I am definately a cuddly person. I like snuggling on the couch, holding hands, etc and my husband knows to never leave the house without giving me a kiss first!! :-) Even my favorite jobs so far involve physical contact; coaching gymnastics was lots of hands on, as is massage therapy. I loved making people feel better or helping them excel at what they were trying to accomplish.

I a total hugger. Keep up the great work you're doing. Somebody out there will always remember you for it.

I need and crave physical contact with others. I'm touchy feely to a fault, I suppose, but that's how I was raised. My parents showered me with affection, though I suppose it helped to be an only child. With that said, it's difficult for me to understand how anyone can not feel good about getting a hug.

I totally understand. I grew up in a house where hugs were the norm. You never walked into my parents house without giving out hugs. Didn't matter who you were, you were getting hugged. LOL ((((((((elizabeth))))))))))

I could do a bit of both. It all depends on the person and the mood I am in.

I am a mixture of the two but given a chiose I'd pick my own space.

Oh yes, hug me, hug me, hug me. LOL This is a great topic. As you can see, I am a hugger. I am not always the one that needs the hug though. Through instict of some sort, I can always seem to tell when someone, I know needs a hug, and I am there for them. I too need hugs on a regular basis. Hugs are great for our mental state. They release the "feel good" endorphins. Touch is one of the greatest healers of the human body. Without other human touch, we become void, and our emotions dry up to an extent. So make someone's day and hug away.

It depends on the person...my Nephew, my Mom, my Dad yes, I like to hug. Strangers, ppl I haven't seen in a long time no, I don't like to hug. It really depends on how I feel about the person. !!HAPPY EASTER!! **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
