Types of hugs and meaning :)

Hug is a universal form of physical intimacy that involves closing (or holding) the arms around the neck or waist or another person or group of persons which indicate familiarity, love, affection, or friendship. A hug, sometimes in association with a kiss, eye contact or other gestures, is a form of nonverbal communication.
Here are some of the types of hugs and their meanings:

‘I Love You’ Hug
A close cheek-to-cheek hug that says “I Love You” even more with an added kiss on the lips.

‘I Want You Now’ Hug
A close hug with a bit of rubbing and grinding.

Big Bear Hug
Pull your partner in really, really, really close, put your arms completely around them, and squeeze tight.

Run and Jump Hug
Run at your partner and jump into their arms with excitement!

Pull your partner close and give them a gentle squeeze with a light pat on the back.

Friendly Hug
Put your arms lightly around your partner’s shoulders and give a gentle squeeze.

Group Hug
A hug involving multiple people - family or friends - where you all put your arms around one another.

Half Hug
A quick wrap, lightly touching your partner where your arms only go halfway around (hence, half a hug).

Man-to-Man Hug
Wide open arms, tilt head, embrace with a pat on the back and then move apart. 

Hello & Goodbye Hug
A quick, semi-close hug paired with a kiss on the cheek.

Hug of Joy
A semi-close hug with excitement and movement that often times includes a bit of excitement jumping.

in close!
