Things to Avoid with Your Girl or Girlfriend

If you are in the middle of a hug and you can tell that the person obviously doesn’t want to be touched, then break off physical contact immediately. If you find yourself in the middle of an obviously awkward encounter, then do the right thing and leave the girl alone. You will learn about different types of hugs that you should not give a girl. These may be reciprocated to you.

Having A Hard On

Having a hard-on in the middle of your hug is a huge no-no. Not only is it inappropriate to imply any unwarranted sexual intimacy, it may lead to violence or legal charges. Make sure that your member is either tucked away or leave some room if you feel a tent coming on between your pants. There’s nothing girls hate more than a creepy hug that involves your sex organs. Make sure that you adjust for size and hug her properly so you do not insinuate anything weird.

Mind Your Surroundings

I know that it is amazing to finally get that kiss you've dreaming of, but you need to keep in mind where you are. If you start spinning or kicking out of passion you might get some weird looks depending on where you are. Places like the museum or the movie theatre are definitely no-nos in terms of going wild while you kiss. Having a full on passionate display may also be off-putting to some people in public. Just be polite and careful about where you go kiss crazy!

Practice Makes Perfect

I know that this may sound a little bit weird, but some people need to practice hugging. Nobody teaches you which hugs are appropriate at which time. This is why there are so many uncomfortable and awkward embraces around the world. Practice the different hugs in different situations and learn which ones are most appropriate. There are different ways to hug a girl.

The Different Types of Good Hugs from Girls or Girlfriends

There are different ways of giving and receiving a good hug, but they all share the same characteristics. These hugs will be very close and tight in nature. Your girl or girlfriend should be extremely comfortable with the space between you two and the intimacy that arises from it. To make sure that you properly receive that lovely hug, keep on reading.

The Firm Squeeze

The firm squeeze is a tight hold that lets the girl know how much you deeply care about her. This should be familiar to you as you may have received one of these hugs from a parent and a friend. Girls, as well as your girlfriend, should respond especially well to this hug. It is filled with emotion and can properly communicate how much love you feel for your partner. Nothing feels better than getting a hug so big that your eyes pop out! If the girl is taller than you, try using this type of hug! Your girlfriend will really appreciate hugging like this.

The Lingering Hug

These types of hugs are the ones you might see in movies or Disney cartoons. The couple will usually stay in a hugging position while they look into each other’s eyes and talk. It allows you to have the intimacy of a hug while being able to communicate and connect with each other. Girls especially love this type of hug. Girls love the ability to look into your eyes and see how much you love her. The next time you see your girlfriend try this type of hug out.

The Sitting Hug

Also known as the Straddle Hug, this involves your girlfriend sitting directly on your lap facing the opposite way. You should use this type of hug when you are trying to get things started in the bedroom. The girl in question will usually start this type of hug so that she can build emotional trust while getting frisky. This hugging position leaves both of you vulnerable and open to any kind of physical contact. Maybe the girl giving you this type of hug will be your girlfriend! Do the sitting hug for your girl.

Wedding day for these hotties!!

Around the Waist

The Around the Waist is another form of intimate hug that should have you and your girlfriend connecting on another level. Your girl is allowing you to take control of her center of gravity. This leaves the girl in a very vulnerable and open position. Much like the lingering hug, this hug allows you to face your girlfriend and talk while hugging. This type of hug is brilliant for initiating a private conversation or moment. Be aware of how much taller or shorter you are; you don’t want to be standing on your tiptoes or slouching!

The Different Types of Bad Hugs from Your Girl or Girlfriend

Like good hugs, bad hugs can be a powerful way to tell somebody how uncomfortable you are with making physical contact. Not only can somebody give you a bad hug, you too can communicate discomfort or awkwardness by utilizing these different types of hugs. If you encounter a hug like this, make sure to disengage and not make anybody uncomfortable. Once again, adjust for taller or shorter girls.

The Quickie

Everybody has been subjected to this type of hug before. This happens between people who definitely do not want to touch each other but are afraid to be rude. You can also see this between two homophobic men that don’t want to show emotions with one another. The quick hug is the complete opposite of a warm embrace. If you ever receive a hug like this, it means that the person is touching you out of obligation. Take that as a sign and leave! He or she doesn't want to hug you.

The A Hug

The A hug is named so because of the shape that the two people awkwardly embracing create with their bodies. This is the type of hug that you give someone that you think is absolutely repulsive. It is definitely a step above the Quickie in terms of negative vibes and feeling. The girl in question or your girlfriend that you have been fighting with will be leaning her entire body away from the hug. This hug is usually given to the weird family member or teacher.

The One Shoulder Lean

The Lean is something that is seen very frequently at parties or family gatherings. The girl or girlfriend will hug the man partially, exposing only one side of her body. This signifies a reluctance to be open and vulnerable. Various versions of this hug can be seen with taller and shorter people, but it is always done with one shoulder. The girl is pretty much telling you no by using her shoulder as a shield.

Tips and Techniques

Next up are a few tips and tricks to improve your hugging game. These tips will definitely make hugging more comfortable for the girl you are interested in. Girls will love how warm and secure your arms feel. Your girlfriend might appreciate it too! Shorter or taller girls will love that you go the extra mile. Don't freak out; hug your girl!

Do Calibrate

Calibrating your strength is an important factor of hugging. Using the right amount of strength can either help set the mood or ruin a perfect moment. Read your girl or girlfriend’s body language before you push in and bring her close. Does she want you to hug her? Is your girl paying attention? Is this an emotionally charged moment? All of these questions and more should be considered.

Initial Light Touch

Using a light, gentle touch to indicate that you are going to get in close can help signal what kind of emotion you are portraying to the girl or girlfriend. Your girl is going to want a lot of communication through words and body language. A light touch can set the correct tone for your girl or girlfriend to get intimate. Girls do appreciate polite people as some men can be disgusting towards them. There are many stories of men inappropriately touching girls in a variety of situations. Don’t let this be one of those situations!

The Slow Release

Slowly releasing a tight hug can be an experience in itself for your girl. Your girlfriend might feel as if she is left hanging if you let go abruptly. Like the first light touch, a slow release can help set the mood. It is also a good way to use your body to tell your girl or girlfriend how you feel.

Don’t Sniff

Sniffing makes people feel uncomfortable in general. When you start sniffing a girl in the middle of a hug, it can be extremely off-putting and uncomfortable. Girls hate it, especially when creepy men put any of their orifices around their faces. Don’t be a creepy dude and just follow what the girl is comfortable with.

Consent is Very Important

The most important thing about hugging a girl or your girlfriend is to see if she wants the hug in the first place. If she's responding negatively to any advancements or attempts to touch, it is a clear sign that the girl doesn’t want to give you physical contact at all. During these moments, it is crucial to consider the feelings of your partner or friend and simply move away. Giving people hugs can be incredibly awkward if it is not wanted or expected. Be sure of where you stand with the girl you are planning to hug. This applies to your girlfriend as well. If your girlfriend doesn’t want to hug, let her be.
