A hug is the most simple yet affectionate expression of love. A single hug can mend a hundred broken pieces inside you. It can heal all the cracks and wounds and give you that boost you need to get on with your life. Hugs have been proven to be natural stress relievers.


Hugs are indeed the best and it is the easiest way to show someone that you love, care and are thankful to them. You may not have thought about it, but there are different types of hugs that convey different messages to people.


Hug at the waist

Even if the man hasn't come out in the open and confessed his feelings yet, this kind of an embrace talks for itself. This one is an intimate gesture and it clearly shows that the man wants to spend every second with nobody but you. It also means that he trusts you and is over the moon to see you and hold you in his arms.

Hug from behind

It is a hug where he is covering you from the behind, pulling you close and at the same time making you feel wanted.This man is ready to protect you and is not afraid of responsibility. Even if he hasn’t said the words out yet, a guy who holds you like this is in madly in love and wants to be your knight in the shining armour.

The bridge hug

A hug of this kind means that there’s an actual distance between you and the whole affair looks awkward. If a guy gives you a bridge hug, it means that he is not interested in you and doesn't want to hug you in the first place! He is just doing it to seem polite.


Hug with a pat on the back

This is definitely an expression of affection but not on the romantic note! If a guy hugs you with a pat on the back, it means that he definitely has no plans on taking your friendship any further than what it is. Now, if you're already in a relationship and your guy has been hugging you this way, then it means that he’s not that into you.


Hug while looking into your eyes

This means that there is a deep and intense connection that he is trying to establish between the both of you. Also, that he cares for you deeply and wants to take all your worries away.


One-handed hug

When the man hugs you with one arm around your shoulder, it means that he wants you under his wing. The guy is ready to protect you and support you when required. Likewise, a girl who hugs a guy like this is signally that the guy is just a friend and things will probably not go any further.

The strong hug

If a man hugs you firmly and gently strokes your back, you have everything you need which is somebody who protects as well as cherishes you. He is committed and wants a long-term relationship. Keep this one close!


The naughty hug

This is the hug where the guy's hand travels down your back and maybe rests on your buttock. He’s clearly ready for some bedroom action. Even though you might not be in a relationship yet, he is quick to establish his “claim” on you as his. If indeed you are not in a relationship, his behaviour demonstrates lust, not love. If however you are in a relationship, he clearly has major hots for you.
