    I'm a hugger/cuddler.

    Of course, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy a good :kiss , but that was a different thread all together, right?

    And you, CEN? Which do you prefer?

    Rick, for clarification - are you referring to these actions in regards to one's relationship with their significant other? If so, I'd say I am equally a hugger/cuddler and kisser. I am madly in love with my husband. And strangely, out of the 3 (total husbands), he's the only one that has prompted me to that kind of affection. Must be that Teddy Bear quality he has.

    I would have to say I'm a hugger/cuddler. I just feel safe and secure when I'm being hugged. Does that make sense to ya'll?

    wow! so far it all has went in one direction.

    in answer to your question cathy? i am a hugger and cuddler. i thrive on affection, i don't deny it. i am a very irriatble, quiet unhappy person without it. however, even more important, it can't just be anybody.....it has to come from the right person.

    It was me, Rick, Cathy. Somehow I figured that. You aren't a Leo by any chance, are you? I've told my husband that it's because I'm a "cat" that I like to be held and hugged. He thinks I'm crazy.
    I love kissing him, too, mixed with the cuddling, of course!

    I think I was a man in a previous life, I hate being with men who want to cuddle all the time!

    Cen, grreat thread.............and great ?????????
    takin it two fold here in my answer.......bet you can guess where i voted.........

    1) in my entire life and professional life as a nurse......... i am a hugger and a cuddler.........I will hug a patient(if situation warrants it), I have been known to hug another nurse just because(gender regardless), pats on back, partial hugs around the shoulder for those doc's who you know just need it, but you ain't quite sure how they will perceive it(gender regardless). For myself, nursing is such a physical profession that i feel that touch should also be part of spiritual and emotional support.........as it is sooooooooo' much on the technical side of it.........let's see, bed baths, cleaning _______, starting iv's, just moving and repositioning patients, various procedures.................

    what am i trying to say.....you ask.....sentence fragmenting again, Micro...........you are right Cen.......well, i am who i am.....so will just end this portion with this.......

    last night, patient scared..........totally off the wall.........i was comfortable with situation and had taken care of patient previous.........walked into the room and said something to the extent of Hey, ________ and proceeded to sit on side of bed and patient grabbed onto me with the biggest tightest hug that i have felt in a while.......and if I could not have reciprocated this hug.......then for myself something would be lacking in me as a nurse let alone as a person

    that is enough for now.........was going to discuss my feeling about cuddling and hugging as opposed to being a kisser, etc on a personal level...............but I have taken up enough bandwith space for this time frame.............
