NOW THE MAIN STUFF! WHY DO YOU LIKE HUGS? WHAT DO THEY MEAN TO YOU?

Hug is the warmest and safest place on earth.  It means that someone really cares about me. Knowing that makes me secure and able to do things in life without the need to search for acceptance and support. Both of them are already there, in one warm hug.


WITH WHO DO YOU HUG THE MOST? WHO’S YOUR FAVOURITE HUGGING PARTNER?

I tend to hug with everyone! Hugs are my way to say hi or goodbye! Saying those words is good, but "hugging" them out is even better!


IS THERE A ONE PARTICULAR HUG THAT YOU WOULD POINT OUT AS YOUR FAVOURITE?ANY HUG SO FAR THAT STICKS OUT?

The hug when I do something wrong, or when someone else does something wrong. A relieving hug that gives me strength to overcome my mistakes and to fix things faster!


IS THERE SOMEONE YOU OWE A HUG? SOMEONE YOU SHOULD HAVE HUGGED OR YOU WANTED TO HUG, SOMEONE WHO DESERVED A HUG BUT FOR SOME REASON YOU STILL HAVEN’T?

My friend got a daughter, Petra, which I haven't met yet, so I am counting all the hugs I owe to my new little friend :)


IF YOU COULD PICK ANYONE, WHO WOULD YOU HUG?DEAD OR ALIVE, FICTIONAL OR REAL?

Hmmm... If I could I would choose to hug all the bad people from past. Like Hitler etc. I think that all these people were kids that were not hugged enough. That is why we should hug kids more nowadays, to prevent them from going to the dark side ;)


AND LASTLY, GIVE US ONE DAMN GOOD REASON WHY WE SHOULD ALL HUG MORE?

Hugs can turn all monsters into cute, fluffy cuddlers ;)
