A year of NO A-Frames...
A year without ANY Sideways Hugging... (it is not your friend. It is not even really a hug.)
You are no less manly for your lack of back-patting.
I am not a hot potato. You can maintain contact for a full second if you like.
Lifting people off the ground is considered impolite.
The important this is not to be afraid of the hug. A good hug is a confident hug.
Now go forth, to hug in peace!
(Happy New Year)
A much needed guide, thank you Anna. Here's to non=awkward hugging!
Oh no! Now there is even more pressure to give good hugs!!!
Why is the awkward hugger identified as a ginger? I have always known gingers to be excellent huggers.
Aha! But notice the mysterious ginger hugger is also role-modelling the correct technique too!
Most guys when they hug go for punches to the back rather than pats. I like making things awkward on purpose by rubbing instead of patting on the back.
Nice post Anna by the way.
I disagree with this... why do you get to set the rules!?
I find much of the awkwardness comes from not knowing if the other person is going to kiss first, and worse, if they are going for the american "one-kiss" or the french "two-kiss" or the cheeky "three kiss!" It's a mine-field out there :)
I couldn't agree more! That is my number one cause of awkward moments.
Reckon you can add instruction about approaching gently, no grabbing and mashing, so that I can send this to a friend of mine? And maybe deleting this comment before I do that...
I think it could be useful to also add, when person A is hugging person B, person A should not knock person C's wine glass into C's teeth with A's elbow...
thought you'd like this
thats a bit bold. to declare a direction to the left!
No hugs, please.
