I give hugs, because I see so many people who are hurting and, who just want someone to care about them.
I give hugs, because I didn’t receive them as a child, and I don’t want others to go through their day/their life without them.
And while “hugs” it is just a word (spoken or written), when someone says it with meaning, you feel it. It can touch you, and make you feel like you are loved and worth it.
And that is what I want to happen, for that warmth to come across, not in a sexual way. (Far from it) but in the sense of letting a person know… I care.
I give hugs in person as well… but often my friends with me to do so
