I don't mind hugs myself although it depends on who it is. I love hugging my boyfriend but found out months ago that he doesn't like them (though continues to hug me anyway to make me happy). I found out the reason why he doesn't like them (although he says he's now starting to) is that he wasn't used to them: Turns out his family & friends don't hug him like some of mine do with me. I've known other people who don't like hugs too although didn't think to ask why although I have some theories. So people who don't like hugs: Why not?

I don't like hugs with just anyone but liked it only with girlfriend or wife, other than that it's just awkward with other people1
