Do you hug after the date… or before? Hug early and often

happy woman

Big Hugger: Janie, from Burlingame, ( 57, divorced twice, single and looking)  will tell you, if you want to make an impression on a man: “Hug early and hug often.”


On a first meeting/coffee date, she goes right in for ‘the big hug.’

She says the faux French double-kiss on the cheeks is too pretentious;  a handshake is too cold; Janie wants the man to like her – and to know she likes to touch and be touched- hence, hugging, flirting, touching his hand, arm…you get the picture.

Friendly or Flirty? Which hug is good for you?

The Top 5 Most Popular Hugs

1. The FBH – The Full Body Hug –One person envelops the other in a total, head to toe hug. The two fit like a glove.

2. The Triple Pat – Both individuals come in for a quick shoulder bump, each person applies three quick pats on the back, followed by the shove-off. You may hear the word “dude’ uttered.

3. The Donald Duck– The Hugger bends at the waist, allows for a quick peck on the cheek and does not allow body contact from the shoulders down.

4. The K.I.S.S. – Classic Keep it Simple and Superficial Hug – consists of leaning in, and air kisses on both cheeks. Actual physical contact verboten.

5. The Ecstatic Embrace – If you have more time – 90 minutes- you might want to try the Ecstatic Embrace.
