    I have this friend/acquaintance thing who always wants to hug to say "hello" and "bye" and I hate it... it's so freakin' awkward, I never know what to do with my arms. I hate everything about it, I just kinda stand there and wait for it to end

    Culture. As someone who straddles 2 cultures I see the differences like night and day.

    Imagine a culture where the men do half hugs, back slaps and extended duration handshakes as a matter of course. You get used to it... after a couple decades, mostly.

    Don't worry if I ever see you I won't attack you with one... because hardly people like getting hugs these days.

    OH THE LONELINESS.

    I see you're sx-last so that would explain too.. :o

    I just realized... hugging a memory foam pillow is actually kind of close to giving a hug...
    Yeah I bet sx-last is the thing here. Wonder if other sx-last people.

    Lucky for me, it's generally all about hugs in the circles I frequent.

    I especially like the awkward-greeting-hug transmute into the nice-goodbye-hug.
    Nope, hugs that "work" don't make up for it. I don't really touch other people that often, even my mom. Touching just isn't really my thing and I rarely have the urge to hug someone.

    What does culture have to do with it? I have been in this culture my entire life and have never gotten used to it. I'm a girl...

    Interestingly enough I'll put this here or sometime in the future in like some enneagram thread

    Sx people look for the most attractive person
    So people look for the highest social standing
    Sp people look for the most comfortable place

    Culture has everything to do with it. Those I heard from north-western europe countries and some asians are less interactive with others than say latin american's or african's are, social space wise.

    It refers to "that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures." A pretty, outgoing, whacky romantic lead whose sole purpose is to help broody male characters lighten up and enjoy their lives.

    One might get the impression that I don't like hugs because of how much I suck at them, but I appreciate them very much and am doing my best to give it back. Even if it sucks.

    I'd rather she just not hug me ;_;

    Actually, now that I think about it, I was always that kid who'd wriggle and squirm to escape when my mom started hugging me or trying to cuddle me. I don't think I've ever been a big fan of hugs. :p

    And just because:
