    No, I don't like to hug people, even my drunk hugs are distant ones that have ben initiated by other people.

    Doesn't matter how close we might be either, my ISFJ friend has been trying to get me to loosen up with the hugs for 5yrs now and she is no closer.

    I can't even comfort people who are in distress very well, unless I force myself to give a hug, which I feel really uncomfortable doing the entire time.

    The only hugs I give that are not stiff and awkward are to my kids, and my pets, and then I can go all out squeezing them to death in a rush of repressed affection that I can't show the outside world lol.

    Irl I only hug friends and my bf. And I really need to be comfortable with the person. I have to know them quite well (in order to know that they're ok with this for one) and I have to trust them implicetly, otherwise it's a no go. PDA tend to be more silly and used as a greeting, whereas in private it can sometimes be a tender moment that causes me to hug the person.

    Damn it, it seems like all the Fs I know LOVE to give me hugs. I'm always cringing and hiding when it comes time for family get togethers. Especially my NF sisters. Love to overload on the emotions on me because they absolutely love seeing the "WTF is wrong with you, you crazy fool. Get away from me." me look. It makes their day.

    You know what we're secretly doing, don't you, Aimahn?

    We notice you aren't using all the feelings of love and joy you carry so we're sureptitiously stealing them from you. Hee.

    No, I'm not good with the PDA's. I wish I was. I even feel weird hugging my family. I step out of my comfort zone in order to appear more 'regular' from time to time.

    Yes you're right I frequently do feel violated... And strangely naked. What sorcery are you guys up too?

    Awww, E.A. you seem sooo 'huggable'.

    I think I would be a 'huggy' mom. I am a 'huggy' aunt.
