    Open hook: Where the hook just allows his hand to hang down naturally, the pull of the hookee on the curve of the arm/elbow would create that curve, so the hand ends up about hip level. You get the same effect if you carry a clutch purse/ hand bag on the elbow? The hookee basically leaves more freedom for the hook's arm to swing, by not closing it.



    And the friend hook! The hook (wearing the rafting sweatshirt) basically lets his hands hang down all the way, in doing so, tightens the loop, so the hookee's arm is drawn into his side and the pair is hence closer. Not good for walking around poles with though.

    I. feel. like. a. fluff. ball.
    Brilliant!! I can't believe you went and found all these. Thanks, Aelan!

    So, I am definitely with the friend hook. I suppose I just need to let it hang? Right next to me?

    I just googled arm-in-arm. Wizard of Oz didn't turn up though.

    Welcome. You should wait for the other girls to wake up and comment. I think the guys will not really use this hold.

    Just let it hang, and draw it in to you, so she's not hanging on to a limp fish, but a fish that wants her there. . If it helps, you could also use your other hand to hold her hooked hand.

    Dang. I really feel fluffy.

    I think with the "friend" hook the man in the rafting sweater is the father (the pic is called father_sons.jpg). In my opinion -- because the man is not active in the hook -- this looks more like clinging than hugging. I think a more genuine friendship hug goes over the shoulder (at least among guys).

    Guys tend to be rougher, but usehername is female... Actually, you could hold hands right? I hold hands with my girlfriends too.

    Edit: Also because, two guys arm-in-arm tends to look a little.. well.. merry.

    Usehername makes the best threads. Everytime I read one, my first thought is..." That seems so obvious..." and then I go to type a reply and realize I have no clue.

    Engage your Se!

    yes, that's why I try to respond to her threads. It helps me learn to be more concrete. Not to a pedagogue point, but at least, less. N.

    I would respond like the attached photo.



    oh, you mean a friend you like rather than a stranger on the street!



    I would lock my arm around theirs in a similar position. Think of it as an arm hug.

    Hey Userhername, were you the one who posted the 'mechanics of female hugs' thread way back when? These are amusing in a Seinfeld-esque way. I've had touchy feely friends and I'm not naturaly inclined to be touchy feely with everyone (though I think I may have latent touchy feeliness that comes out more as get comfortable in my skin). When such friends hook their arms around my waist or something, I just mirror them and hang on for awkward dear life. Hahaha.

    When I hook arms with friends, I rest my hooked arm against my stomach or else if it's cold snuggle up for warmth. It's not even necessarily affectionate. I'm cold dammit. I think I've also just akwardly leave my arm straight like the kid in the last pic and trudged along like a trooper being overwhelming by Fe/Se. Hahahahaa.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    And Aelan. Pics! Brilliant! Very..systematic for an ENTP? I can't think of the world other than 'helpful'.
