Hugging.

I think that I learned many things about interaction from partying, things that I take with me still. Others kiss, some shake hands, I've noticed ever since I started partying that I hug. As do many others I know, and have observed. While I know that a hug is not exclusive to the raving community, I wonder if somehow, it's a greeting that has been adopted. This could be because of it's friendly, non-aggressive nature, or because it isn't as pretentious as some alternatives, such as a kiss on the cheek.

When I remember observing other people in non-raving related environments, I can't say that hugging is really that common. Nor would I want to over-categorize people. But ravers seem to be the one group in which hugging is consistently expressed...

Do you think hugging is common among ravers?
Do you think you learned to use the "hug" as a greeting, from raving?
Or am I just completely silly on this one?

I only recently got comfortable with the idea of hugging people. I was raised in a pretty British family and we weren't very affectionate, and hugging was often awkward at best. I often looked upon it as being something very exclusive (like someone special) or for very rare occaisions. It's still a little weird from time to time, but I'm getting used to it.

From the Ministry of I credit the people around me, more than the music or the scene. You can't really hug the music can you?

I think one of the most important components of the scene, was the people. And how you made each other feel. In this way, you are sorta agreeing with me (I think).

I hug people all the time. Hell I even hugged that posTMOd bastard just the other day.

Calling cheek-kissing pretentious is a little heavy-handed though. I do it all the time, cuz when I lived in Montreal, it became a habit and I think it's a great way of greeting or leaving someone. My gay friends in Quebec always kissed cheeks - it was pretty cute.

Whatever. We're human. I think sometimes people get too caught up in a let's-ignore-basic-human-needs attitude.

My family was also very close....I always hug my parents and sister.

Didn't mean it that way. I kiss my best friends all the time, and my family. (I'm also french canadian). I just meant that hugging was maybe a little less....personal. :)

its all about the man-hug

you know where you shake one hand and then go in close and give the quick pat on the back and the 'rahhh' sound?


balls always stay at least a foot apart, so iz cool.


for girls they get the regular hug, because they are soft and snuggly.

i like hugging. its nice...its kind of a "i respect you as a friend, you mean more to me than a random person i would meet through daily interactions" kinda thing. if that makes sense. i find its the perfect combination of genuine respect/friendship and big ups.
i find an interaction feels incomplete unless its completed with a hug :)

<--fan of the hugging

I don't. If I hug someone, then I make it a good hug to show that I'm actually putting some effort into hugging the said person.

hahahaha

does that make sense?

Sometimes, when I wanna feel manly, I like to give the man-hug too. It makes me feel all bad-ass 'n shit. Or the shake where you smack down your hand into a guy's hand....yeah...that's the stuff.

But I still really like the hug. :)

Especially if you've just hugged some hot tart and are sporting a semi...

I've learned to hug the guys first, then go to the girls...

Sure, but do you hug everyone the same?

Not me

From the Ministry of special people deserve special hugs.
