10 Types Of Hugs And What They Really Mean


10 Types Of Hugs And What They Mean What’s the simplest way to show your emotions,
especially love and affection? Yes, a cute little hug. You know you love someone if hugging them
makes you fade away from everything else, even on your worst days! You see it as an indication of trust and affection
in general but a hug is a coded message and if you are smart, you may be able to decipher
it! Shocked? Yea people, there are many times of hugs and
each one bears its own meaning. If you want to know the extra bit someone
expressed through their hug, you are at the right spot because we are unveiling 10 types
of hugs and their hidden meaning! Number 1. London Bridge Hug
When you two are not meant to be more than mere acquaintances but are still forced to
hug, what do you think will come out of it? Yes, an awkward hug which is very likely a
London Bridge Hug. Now that’s an interesting name but it is
what it sounds like. You guys hug in way that only your upper bodies
touch while there is an awkward gap between your lower bodies. Such a hug represents discomfort and disagreement
in a relationship or between the two people in the hug. Have you ever been in it? Number 2. Eye-to-eye Hug
Embracing the other person while you two maintain an eye contact, now that’s romance at its
best! This one represents a connection with the
soul where the eye-contact is of utmost importance. When two lovers are entwined in a way that
they can look into each other’s eyes without losing physical contact, it represents a deep
connection. It also shows how the two people are eager
to see all the depths of the other person’s soul. If you have experienced the eye-to-eye hug
with your significant other, you have probably felt that your bond is unshakeable! Number 3. The Rag Doll
One of the worst hugs would be the rag doll hug. Why? Come on, the name isn’t cute or romantic,
it shows how limp the other person is! Ever hugged a person with all your energy
expecting an equal and opposite reaction but realized that Newton’s theory didn’t apply
to emotions? The rag doll hug derives its name from the
other person who stands limp like a rag doll instead of participating in the hug. Since we know that friendship is a two-way
street, when you receive such a reaction for your hug you understand where you stand in
the other person’s life! Number 4. The Deadlock
If your significant other has ever enveloped you into a body crushing hug, you are very
lucky! The deadlock is a hug when the other person
is scared of letting you go and would rather stay there with you. They squeeze even the last drop of air between
the two of you to fuse together! Such a hug represents deep commitment and
the fear of losing your lover. It revolves around the feeling that if you
let go the other person from your embrace, they will leave you. That’s another shade of love! Number 5. The Slow Dance
Go back to your High School dance, rewind the memory when you two had a slow dance while
being entwined. Wasn’t it cute? But we are talking about a hug, the one where
the girl wraps her arms around the guy’s neck and the guy holds his girl from the waist. They may even touch foreheads to increase
their closeness. This shouts ROMANCE in every possible way! If you two still hug this way after being
years in a relationship, good news- the romance is still alive. This hug can also mean that the people want
to get to know each other better, especially if they touch their foreheads- symbolic of
transferring thoughts! Number 6. The Back Stroke
This one is all about reassurance. Probably a hug that a parent gives their child,
assuring them that everything will be alright. All the times when your parents hugged you
softly and rubbed your back soothingly, they were reassuring you. Where did all your troubled thoughts about
your first pimple, the unattainable crush and bullying vanish? Of course in a hug or rather the hug with
back rubbing! But we may still need such a hug once in a
while when we are unsure about the future or when our decisions go wrong, your significant
other giving you this hug symbolizes their caring nature and their will to make you feel
safe. Sweet! Number 7. The Pat
This one’s about friendship, not romance. So as a girlfriend if you get this too often,
know that your relationship is going the wrong way. What does this kinda hug look like? Well, it’s when a person hugs you and pats
your back in a friendly way. Just like how men meet their buddies, nothing
romantic about it! There is a feeling of kinship attached to
it instead of intimacy so it is a sign to watch out for if you are looking to be more
than just a friend! On the other hand, a pat on the back may also
depict appreciation, a way of saying congratulations. So don’t lose heart maybe you are just too
talented and not friend-zoned! Number 8. The Pickpocket
This hug is all about comfort and compatibility and not really about pickpocketing as it sounds! Did you ever hug your special someone and
insert your hands into their pocket because why not? A person would do this only when they are
very comfortable and at ease in their relationship with the other person! As they say- When silence between two people
is comfortable, you know you’ve found love! When words seem unnecessary, this hug is all
it takes to communicate your love and sense of belongingness to your significant other! Number 9. The Sneaky Hug
One of the most adorable hugs that a man can give his lady is the sneaked one! Boys, when she is doing the dishes, sneak
behind her and hug her from behind. You have no idea how much loved she will feel! These hugs are seen by women as their man’s
gesture to show them how she is protected and safe with him. A guy would hug his girl like this when he
has been really missing her and is now extremely excited to see her. Adorable! Guys, wanna make your girl blush? Just go and grab her from behind when she
is least expecting it and voila, there’s no wiping that smile off! Number 10. The Floating Hug
This one is rare so if you got it even once, consider yourself lucky! Imagine you run towards him for a hug but
just when you wrap your arms around his neck, he whisks you off your feet! Aww, isn’t that romantic and cute and adorable
and everything nice? This may end up with a twirl which is OBVIOUSLY
cuter. On the contrary this may move towards a more
sensual stance. The girl may wrap her legs around the man’s
waist and entwine beautifully! Such a hug is generally followed by a kiss,
so we hope you’ve not missed that part! What are your stories about different hugs? Tell us in the comment section below. Subscribe to our channel if you liked this
