    If a guy who has previously came across as a little cold and distant when you would acknowledge them suddenly pulled you in for a hug when you went to shake their hand what would you think of that icon_question.gif

    He takes a while to warm up to people, but he has finally warmed up to you. And this is an expression of his change in temperament. But from someone who warms up slowly to people, I wouldnt take it as an invitation to bed.

    He could be trying to express feelings are there and is simply awkward about it.

    I notice guys will tend to hug me if at the end of the date they have some awareness of me not being interested. Dunno what that means. icon_razz.gif

    OH Boy.......that sudden unexpected pull in from a guy who want to hug you.

    That's a good thing.

    I like when a guy at first seems a little distant but then surprises you with a warm embrace. I like surprises and it shows he was liking what he sees and hears from you. His style is confident and understated and he didn't need to clobber you over the head with nonsense words of flattery or worse, vulgarity.

    He probably heard that you smell like cotton candy and wanted to take a sniff.

    This happens to me all the time with straight guys.
    I take is as a wonderful compliment. It means they are not threatened by you and are comfortable enough to exhibit a friendly sign of affection. And most frequently, guys of all sexual orientations do this.
    Hugs are great and unless you have some crazy mind reading skill that the rest of us don't have, it's best to accept it in the social manner it's most commonly intended.

    I agree with ANDCB... don't over analyze

    def dont read into it. He's probably just a reserved guy like myself and wont hug people until he thinks they're legit. its friendly affection. Its not any indication whatsoever of sexual interest

    I would take it as a sign of trust and commeraderie. Not many guys enter friendship blindly, and usually there is a time of boundry marking, much like canines. ( not that ALL men are dogs ...LOL.) I am sure this guy wanted to see what you are about before opening himself up to you.

    CHeers !!

    British (straight) guys are, by and large, completely cool with hugging friends, gay or straight, these days. Makes life ever so confusing.

    I hug people/guys whatever all of the time. Don't mean I want to sleep with you. However, if he came and hugged you from behind then...well... make sure your ass is cleanicon_biggrin.gif

    I guess if you want him to hug you that is good. Me, I don't like to be hugged. I use to go to this all men group and it was hug and hug when you got there and hug and hug when you left. Some hugged out of kindness........then shake my damn hand, and others hugged because they wanted to touch you.........get off me! I couldn't stand it. I quit. I never saw my parents hug in my life.....funny how they rub off on us.
