Guys, What does it mean when he always initiates a hug?

Anonymous
There is a guy I kind of feel a connection with but sometimes I don’t (it’s weird). Anyway, in the beginning of our acquaintance when I really felt the affinity more like buddy energy (he’s a really nice guy), I would always greet him with a hug. But, since I started realizing I may have more feelings for him and in conjunction with COVID (out of respect), I stopped greeting him that way, I just wave instead. However, he still continues to initiate hugs both upon meeting and when parting. I don’t know if he just was used to me greeting him that way and so continues it without thinking or if he likes me and misses that I used to initiate it and so takes it upon himself to do so. What do you guys think? He always includes hug emojis in texts to me as well.
