Why do girls want to hug guys when greeting them? Page 1 of 1    
Im always being hugged when greeted by women. I like that because Im an affectionate man. Im curious if there is a good reason that women want to hug me.
Also is there an appropiate place to place my hands when hugging? Do different places mean different things? ie....hans around her waist, hands pressed on her back.

I don't know, I don't ever do this unless I know the person. Especially meets of a dating nature, hugging when arriving to me sends the wrong message.

Don't ask why, just enjoy.

Women, in general hug their "friends" not a prospective lover. You may be stuck in

guy friend land. A one armed hug with one shoulder in and one out is best with the other

arm down by your side. No misconstrued messages that way.

Probably to hug your Azz goodbuy. Exscpecialy after the last thread you made about being married and looking for a "female" partner... Even though you are married!Which I might add just got deleted....

It's a sub-cultural thing--kind if like the double/triple kiss in European countries. I would never hug anyone in Japan. But everyone hugs in Boulder. And it's not sexual. I can see why you wouldn't want to hug a business associate, but why NOT hug a friend or prospective date?

Perhaps, have you noticed whether you're missing your wallet?

Well for me I only hug them if I feel comfortable from previous conversations or by their body language.....otherwise sadly for me its the business like hand shake...so if you are meeting me better make sure your lotioning your hands as I mentally notate if your hands are rough or not....lol.

I dont' know since I don't touch unless I am connected emotionally I like the 3 ft space rule around me. I know alot of men and women like to hug but if I don't know well don't hug me.
I don't know how many times I have taken that step backwards to miss the hug when I am introduced to someone.

I will only hug you if 1) I know you and 2) if I havent seen you in a while. Hugging every day is not my thing for friends but if I dont see them for a few months, then they need a hug! Who ever turns down a hug from a big breasted girl? lol
