Human beings are gifted with the blessing of feelings. They can not only feel good or bad, but they can make others feel too. One of the ways through which humans do that is by hugging. Hugging has been known to change someone’s day instantly. But, there are different kinds of hugs that convey different emotions. Let’s take a look at them so the next time you’re hugging someone, you do it the right way.
1. The leaning tower of Pisa hug.
The next time you hug someone out of formality, you might want to observe this. if your heads are tilting but your feet remain where they are, there’s a constant distance between your feet then your hug fits this category.
2. The Robotic hug.
This hug is the case of consolation. The two parties greet gently and there’s no awkwardness or formality
3. The intimate hug.
This kind of hug is easy to identify. The two parties are very close to each other. They lean on to each other which shows that they have a good understanding and trust among them.
4. The Suffocating hug.
The suffocating hug is usually given by an adult to a teen. There’s no intimacy in this hug. One can see from a distant that one of the two people hugging wants to leave and is least interested in hugging while the other person just does not want to let go.
5. The power hug.
College teens usually prefer this type of hug. they don’t hug to greet but, to show each other their strength by hugging too tightly or maybe punching the back a little.
6. The pampered hug.
This is the hug that usually one needs at the end of a terrible day. It usually comes from a close person, a friend or family person. This kind of hug changes the mood instantly.
7. The gentleman’s hug.
As the name shows, this hug is mainly for men when the embrace a woman and are ‘owning them’. The hand lies just above the waist.
8. The pervert’s hug.
Again, the name tells everything about this kind of hug. She might be your girlfriend but hugging her like this, grabbing her ass in public makes you look nothing less than a pervert.
9. The friend’s hug.
This is the casual hug we see between friends; irrespective of gender. The two might be walking or standing or even maybe taking a picture together.
10. The hug for a lifetime.
This kind of hug is only seen between couples and even those that are really comfortable with each other. One of the two might have his/her hands in the partner’s pocket showing a great sense of comfort between them.
11. The forever hug.
This hug is also seen only between couples. In this hug, the woman wraps her hands around the man’s neck and the holds her waist. This hug shows that the couple wants to spend some time with each other and this hug could go on for a while.
12. The prolonged hug.
This hug maybe seen in case of consoling or simply when the two want to hold each other. The two hold on to each other very tightly, much like suffocating hug but the two are willing for it.
13. The hug from the back.
This hug shows protection. Hugging your woman makes her feel protected and secure.
14. The tapping hug.
This is the kind of hug that is usually seen between two colleagues who don’t really care about each other but, greet each other on regular basis.
