I only hug my immediate family. My parents never hugged me and I never saw them hug their parents
Doesn't annoy me but I often wonder if they really want to hug or just do because they would be thought poorly of if they didn't.
Before the pandemic I hugged more or less everyone I met. Friends, family and new acquaintances. It comes fom a lifetime spent in and around arts venues.
I was born into a tactile family and find it strange when people don’t hug like my MIL never seen her hug or kiss her sons
I'm just post-war and the only person I hug is my wife.
It looks juvenile to me.
Apart from holidays it's the biggest thing I've missed this year, I have only hugged my husband when I usually hug other family, friends and close work colleagues. It's been really hard to stop myself automatically touching people when I've been at work.
I hug people I really like on special occasions.
I too was born during the war, and was into hugging even before I was born.

I expect is because I haven’t been hugged. My parents didn’t hug me, but I didn’t think I had missed out. It just wasn’t done. I suppose things are different these days, although the pandemic has changed everything
Hugging in my family started after my aunt died in an accident. We kiss and hug hello and goodbye. You never know if you'll ever see them again.

My parents were very tactile with us growing up.
70's Child, growing up with four Brothers a dead arm will do followed by "see ya nob-hed." The last few years knowing we won't see each over for months and months become more of a hugging family.
frigid lot
did no one hug their teddies or dogs?
Yep. And my cats.
/// It just wasn’t done. ///

You are presenting a false picture of the Forties - just because it wasn't done in your family, you assume universal behaviour. This is not the case, lots of parents were hugging their kids at that time.

Of course I hugged my teddy, I still have him Everyone where I lived was the same as us
Hugging is so therapeutic, I wonder how long before it will come naturally again?

I can't watch videos like this without smiling broadly.

This is just my opinion canary
Some folk are hugger types; others are uncomfortable with the excessive display/activity of affection. As long as they don't envelop me, I'm ok with it.
Don't they fall off the TV, though ?
