@ossobuco,
I am fine with hugging among social friends - though at work for some reason any sort of touching is wrong. I guess I just don't like to mix personal with work.

And of course smelly people are out as well - I wouldn't want to hug a smelly person. I love to touch and hug kids - they are just .... huggable. Although I remain unless I know them well - don't want to be considered a molestor. And I always have to hug friends - that is what they are for.

I also did not come from an overing hugging kissing type family - I think that may be why I enjoy hugging and kissing my kids so much. They are very hugging - sometimes when they make a new friend and then leave them, they want to young them - and many kids kind of step away they don't seem to want to hug.

@Izzie,
At work, I had some one who reported to me that miscarried. When she came back in the office, I said her how sorry, etc I was - I wanted to be brief so as not to upset her at work so we discussed briefly. It was the hardest thing for me not to reach out and hug her. It just seemed like the most natural thing to do to try and console.

@Izzie,
I'm a hugger! There are some seriously good huggers out there. You know the kind that wrap their arms around you and squeeze you like they mean it? It's so restorative!

Now - if I don't know you very well I will give a side hug! You know...put my arm around your waist and pull ever so slightly. I am not a casual hugger.

Must have a relationship of some kind established before I give and receive the "bear hugs".

@mismi,
I rarely hug strangers.

(mismi is strange, but I would hug her, I think)

And yes, I do believe that today the daily struggle to maintain your place is just as hard.

Hafta comment on this one, to disagree. I really think grown-ups are much more tolerant than teenagers.

Adults seem (to me) MUCH less concerned with social status and gaffs, and more concerned with making a real connection to other people.

Maybe this is just my own experience speaking?

At 47, I find people SO much more loving, accepting, huggy, and friendly than I did at, say, 17, I can hardly believe it.
