I hug my dog several times a day. I would give my daughter a hug every day but she doesn't like hugs. Haven't seen my son in a little while but when he stops by we always hug one another.

As many as my children will allow me to...and as many as I want to. Hubby is pretty affectionate too.

Virtual (((hugs))) to everyone! Except for those who don't like to be hugged: they get a fist bump, high five, or polite nod, depending on their preference.

Yes, there are sad posts here. I was just wishing I could give those who want one a hug! So, hugs from down South to anyone who wants one, and I wish the rest of you well. I hug a lot! My parents are huggers, my friends are too, and so is my SO; lots of hugs.

No, it is not sad if you are happy. However, some of the posts were sad because people wanted to be hugged but have no one.

I hug and kiss my kids several times a day - being that they're teens and grown men, they don't particularly like it all the time.

I would hug my wife, but she doesn't really like it either.

I would also like to hug other folks who are friends and acquaintances a lot more than I do.

The people I liked to hug are all dead. I still don't want most people touching me.
