I guess its better than air kisses. I don’t like handshakes either.

I used to be fine with hugging people, but I definitely think I would be awkward with it now.

@velociraptor @Kxev I once hugged 3 of my husband’s sister’s kids and as I walked away I blew them 3 kisses and yelled “I love y’all, see you soon” a woman actually laughed… It was fun

As things open up and I’m expected to be in some social situations again. Even my sister.
Its kind of a new thing that’s getting worse.

@Joker @Twialine I’m really glad you can with family.

I only hug 2 people. My twin brother and a woman ive known for 25 years.

Huggy types used to be in the bars. I always thought they were trying to skim my wallet

I hug everyone. But it’s that reach around and pat on the back kinda hug. Our front parts don’t touch.

Same here! I hate being touched, especially on my back, so hugs are horrible. Only my husband and kids can safely hug me. I only see my parents twice a year, but i dont even hug them!

This girl said I reminded her of her mother and insisted on hugging me. I thought it was rude with a pandemic going on.

I don’t like hugging, but it’s one of those things I have had to learn to tolerate in a limited fashion. I will experience more social discomfort over the long run if I fail to interact with others than if I do. It’s a value proposition.
