Hugging a man isn’t easy business, what with all the awkwardness and the confusion over whether to hug or whether to stand back and grin like a monkey. But if you know the art of hugging male friends, then you’ve got nothing to worry about, when it comes to hugging a pal.
From what we’ve all heard, the man of the 2000’s is supposed to be in touch with his feminine side. But that doesn’t mean all you blokes should start walking around like the cross-dressing Dennis Rodman.
Being the thoroughly helpful dudes and dudettes we are here at Lovepanky, we thought it would be nice to teach you young Willy Wonkas the best way to learn the art of the perfect Man Hug.
Hmmm. We can hear you shuffling and getting uncomfortable. Stop grumbling, my young cocker spaniels!
Learning how to Man Hug is hardly asking you to exchange your manly girth to become Mumbai’s finest Hijra, neither is it a suggestion to swap your trousers to sport a sarong like David Beckham.
No no. This is strictly hugging, and knowing the perfect man hug may not only be seen as a warm gesture towards your other male buddies, but may also gather a girl’s attention that you’re a warm and compassionate soul. Well, of course you are, right?
Well then, stop pussy-footing around and let’s hug it out bitch!
Why is it that men just don’t know how to greet each other? For the sake of Mother Nature, handshakes are so bloody formal, it’s as if every time you’re meeting a friend you’re attending an interview.
Most men nod their heads when greeting each other, some shake hands, while a few say nothing and continue to proceed into a conversation.
That’s all very normal when you’re greeting someone but did you know that in the Middle East, men greet each other by kissing one another twice on the cheeks? Now that’s showing some love, and we want you to do the same (no, not kissing) but by hugging.
So at the moment, you’re not really embracing this idea (no pun intended). Hey, listen up sausage jockey, take away those feelings of proposed gay tendencies. You may have reservations about what exactly is the perfect man hug but we’re not asking you to get naked and share a long feel-up embrace with the big fatty from Austin Powers. And really, we’re not saying you should just go up to any dude and hug him, because really, that would be weird.
Instead what we propose is that you learn when to hug and how to hug. Just remember, if you don’t hug, you may be accused of not being comfortable with your manliness, and we wouldn’t want that now, would we?
