Did you know that the way you hug your partner can actually reveal secrets about your relationship? Sometimes, we think that the relationship is going fine, but we’re unable to read beneath and determine if there’s any underlying problems within the relationship, and by the time the entire problem comes to light, it’ll be too big to be rectified.
While we won’t pretend to be relationship experts, we think that one way of looking at things would be to look at the way you hug your partner. While you’re thinking, chey hugging only mah, think again. The way you hug might just reveal previously unknown secrets about your relationship.
Look at the different ways couple hug each other, and what it might mean about your current state of relationship. Do note that this is just a guide, and if you feel that there’s really something going on, don’t assume but sit down with your partner and talk things out calmly instead.
Hugging each other tightly, seemingly unwilling to let go
Also known as the deadlock, it shows that both parties are in deep commitment and not wanting to be apart. However, if this type of hug persists as the relationship progresses, you might want to take note. Of course, if you and your partner has not met for a few days and really miss each other, then everything’s fine. But if this type of hug is prevalent in the relationship, it might just mean that you’re not providing the security that your partner require and they fear losing you. It boosts your ego, but is totally unhealthy for your relationship.
Hugging each other with minimal contact, and lower bodies especially far apart
This is a warning sign that your partner is unhappy with you about something, either that or your partner is uncomfortable with you. Unless you have a disagreement recently, be mindful of this hug because it shows you and your partner do not want to get close to each other.
Hug with her legs wrap around your waist
This hug shows that there’s huge physical attraction in the relationship, and this shows that both partners lust after each other physically. If your partner and you hug like this often, we’d guess that you have a very active life in the bedroom.
One hug with all their might while the other party simply stands there limply
If you’re the one doing the hugging, be warned. This hug can be describe as a “one-way” street, where your love for your partner greatly exceeds their love for you. No matter how hard you try, this relationship is doomed to failure if they don’t respond.
Hugging and maintaining eye contact
The most intimate way of hugging, this hug is all about connecting to each other, body and soul. After all, people have always been saying that the eyes are the windows to the soul. If you and your partner hug this way often, your relationship will most likely be damn solid and strong.
Reach around in a half hug
People also call this the buddy hug and are usually two people who just accomplished something together. If you find yourself hugging your partner this way often throughout the relationship, it shows that your relationship is stronger because other than being romantically involved, you guys are best friends as well.
Hugging from the back
This hug shows that there is trust and security in the relationship. The person in front shows trust in their partners by showing their back to them, while the person hugging from behind shows that he wants to protect her from the world, by exposing his own back to dangers while covering her back. If that’s not love and sacrifice, what is?
Hugging in your own world
Okay, this isn’t a type of hug, but we thought we’d include it in this article because it shows an important aspect of your relationship. If you find yourself constantly hugging your partner and forgetting about your surroundings (MRT, buses, crowded shopping malls) no matter the kind of hug, congratulations, you’re hopelessly in love. You don’t care what others think of your PDA because at that very moment, the only thing that matters is you and her.
So now that you know the different types of hugs in a relationship and what they mean, what secrets do they reveal about your relationship?
