Hug Meanings?

Answer

There are many different types of hugs and they could mean different things. If a person were to hug by wrapping their arms around someone and patting them on the back that would be known as the buddy hug. If a guy and girl where hugging with their arms wrapped around each other and the girl lays her head on his shoulder it most likely would mean she felt safe in his arms. Then there is, of course, the bear hug that would mean the person hugging has been apart from the other person. The meaning of a hug varies depending on what type of hug it is.
