  • Usually yes. I mean there’s always the instances where he cares deeply about you but doesn’t want to pursue anything but usually a long hug is a pretty decent signal that he’s at minimum comfortable with you in his arms and would like more of that.

  • Usually if people feel discomfort around someone or aren't personally attached to them, they'd find physical contact to be uncomfortable like hugging for instance. A hug alone shows how much they like being around you; a longer hug means more affection and comfort which probably means he likes you at the very least! I always find them to be super comfortable and gives me time in the moment to appreciate having someone so loving and caring around! I wouldn't know if he is romantically interested in you but he certainly shows sign of comfort and trust that close friends usually do!

  • He is probably trying to rub off your cologne on himself because he forgot to shower that day

    • Makes sense. He doesn smell good

  • Depends on your relationship with that person, i knew guys that had a crush and would hug me for 5 seconds bc they didn't want me to know that they liked me. And I have a male friend that is like brother to me and will hug me for a long time. Just depends on how the person feels.

  • Is he a friend, acquaintance, someone you just met, or something else? I like to give my female friends hugs because I'm close to them and have strong feelings for them as a friend, but I'm not interested in them. It is not enough of an indication by itself.

  • I hug my sister in law with big boobs. She always wants a hug when I visit and I do not disappoint. She seems to enjoy it and that’s as far as it’s going to go. What’s a good strong hug between family members? She was wild when she was younger so I suspect that the big hugs are the closest she gets to a thrill these days. She’s 12 years older than my wife.

  • Depends what kind of intrest you mean. He could be intrested in you romantically or just want sex.

  • A platonic hug is where the two people lean forward to each other to avoid their crotches getting too close. More than platonic they stand close with their whole body so don't care if that happens. But yeah a long hug is a good sign. It could also mean he just hasn't had a hug in ages cause he doesn't get close with girls much.

  • Do you like it when he does it?

    If yes, then stop asking questions as it seems the feelings are mutual

    if no, then tell send the message you are not interested

  • I would take that as a good thing. With so many people being superficial about things these days, the investment of a minute for a hug seems like it is looking to bring about some interest (pun intended).

  • Could mean yes, could mean shot. My best friend is a woman. She's gorgeous, and by all accounts she's my type. We have long hugs whenever we see each other. I love her to death. But not interested in her.

  • He might. You have a picture? Anyway, why would he hug someone that he doesn’t like? I think he wants to feel your feminine body.

  • Could be, or he might just like holding you close. It depends on what he's doing while hugging you. If he's pulling you in, pressing his hips against your's, running his hands through your hair, tracing your back/spine with his fingers; that's a very sensual hug, but if he's just holding you, that's friendship.

  • Most times yes, however sometimes a hug is just a hug. It all depends of what is your relationship with him. If you just met, he might like you. If your old friends, it might be a sign of a good friendship.

  • Trust me, he's very interested. To me, hugs give the most relief in the least amount of time. Once I was angry at my Ex for a day, she suddenly came and hugged me for a minute and said sorry and everything was fine.

  • It depends, for me personally if I care deeply about someone I probably will give them longer hugs. Does not mean I'm necessarily interested in them just means I care about them.

  • I don't hug myself so I wouldn't know. Most guys like me don't hug much so it's hard to tell, most probably he;s touchy feely and does like you.

  • I'm a hugger so personally if I hug someone so much (which I've never done yet) would mean that I love her and I can stay all day hugging the person I love.

  • It doesn't necessarily mean he's interested, probably more that he cares about you deeply.

    Signs that he's interested is him being nervous, staring at you for long periods of time, etc.

  • That's not a big enough "signal" to know, one might give long hugs because they simply like hugging.

  • maybe if someone was a good friend and they barely made it out of a life threatening situation, and they are ok, that would be more where I would give a long hug

  • Hold the hug as long as he does. Some people need a hug.
    Useless Fact: hold a childs hug until they let go.

  • This guy used to give me long hugs but he wasn't interested in me. So for my case no... but it depends on other factors than just hugging.
