National Hug Week- Deciphering the Difference in Hugs
Open up your arms and squeeze tight it’s national hug week!Well we have officially arrived to it once again and if you haven't had the experience of a hug or two go ahead and get one, see if it puts you in a better mood. Now you should know there are several different types of hugs you can experience so you should have a full description of a few before you go out and take advantage of this epic holiday week.
1. Motherly hug- This is generally the first type of hug everyone experiences, the one that says you are loved and I will forever love you no matter what. Its usually a full frontal hug that uses both arms and doesn't last long.
2. Friend Hug- This is a general expression of “Hey, how ya' doing?" to a friend that you haven't seen in awhile. These are a single arm side hug and last no longer than 2 or 3 seconds any more than that becomes awkward and give a sense that you might be asking to be more than friends.
3. The Bro Hug- This type of hug usually takes place between two really good friends usually of the male gender. This hug starts as a hand shake with a firm grip and then both parties involved lean in and hug with the free arm. The hand on your hugging arm is usually in a fist or flat and both parties will sanctimoniously pat each other on the back in a firm manner once or twice.
So with the this knowledge go out and get hugged my friend. Happy National Hug Week!
