It's getting out of control...

Unread postby FUDU » Wed Sep 29, 2010 12:21 pm

Hugging.

Grandmas, aunts, close female friends, wives of your buds, female acquaintenances, friends of friend's friends, your bud's mom...fuck it never ends. Ok the relatives, and elders like friends moms I get, you should, it's a sign of respect in the least and with Gramdmas and the aunts well their your blood, you gotta love em. But the rest? Hell I see some of them 3 times a week or more, I gotta hug em everyfuckinsingle time....

Close friend with the wife just taking the 2.5 kids and a dog for a walk and the wife reaches in for a hug...I JUST SAW YOU 36 HOURS AGO when we stumbled out of the bar at 2am Friday night, why do we need to hug. Friends wife's sister in law you've met twice in 3 years, I don't know you why you hugging me, I bought you a "hey you're with my friends so it's cool" round once, and you bought me a Michelob Ultra in return, and now we're supposed to hug, WTF.

I don't get it, the necessity, it's like saying hi to a coworker all 8 times you see them in the same day. I need to know, what is the shelf life of a hug, and if there isn't one there should be. 3 weeks, 2 months, 6 months, and is it relative to your level of acquaintence.?

Maybe it's be, I'm tall and got the wingspan of the crucifix, so hugging women who are short/petite/thin (which most are in my circle of life) can be awkward, I feel ike I'm swallowing them, can't imagine what is going through their minds. Tell me some of the rest of you have this problem, CDT you have to, although you're probably stoned when you hug so it's all like "maaaaaaaaaaan what's up".

I demand a nix on hugging.

I gotta admit, the bro hug is about as uncomfortable for me as it gets. I'm fine with a fist bump or a handshake.

Closest friends get even less. No need for some display.

DU is like our own personal Andy Rooney with these threads.

Definitely not a fan of the bro-hug, or most any hug. I hug girls I haven't seen in a while, my fiancee, and my older/little sister (15 years older than me, but about 6 inches shorter than me).

In the same breath, I hate the high five from a stranger at a sporting event. The guy who is so excited that he begins turning to face those who have the unfortunate opportunity of sitting near him with an elevated hand. I don't like high fives in general, but this one pisses me off to no end.

Rather have the Hi-5 than an actual kiss from some 350lb hag next to me the playoff game Belle homered off Benitez at the Jake in whatever year that was.

But yeah, I agree in general.

Bottom line- don't touch me please. ;-) ;) :wink:

Exactly Peek, it's bout my space, and if an arm's length is the standard then people need to get the fuck across the street from me. But there are some instances a hug is acceptable, it's just not every time I see you. Sad part is I've thought all along I've made it pretty obvious to those in my circle of life.

ETA: BTW thanks Herm, dick.

Misanthropes, all of you. Hugs from chicks are ok, nothing wrong with some over the clothes boob action. I don't really have much experience with the unnecessary bro hug.

Hi-5's at games are acceptable. Celebrate your shared excitement. I'll even take the hag kiss (cheek only) if it's a playoff win. I'd probably be drunk enough to bang her anyway, so a little smoochy (cheek only) does no harm.

And if she's mildly attractive, well then, get in where you fit in.

You gotta go for the Christian side-hug in these situations.
