The Way Your Partner Hugs You Can Reveal a Lot About Your Relationship

The Way Your Partner Hugs You Can Reveal a Lot About Your Relationship

Hugs are an intimate form of love and the way you and your partner hug each other can show what kind of relationship the two of you have.

Don't you love the feeling of warmth that comes from a hug? Or the sense of peace you have when you wrap your hands around your partner?

Well, those hugs can deepen the intimacy between you and your partner. Happiness and well-being author Kulraj writes, “Hugging is, in fact, just an extended form of a fundamental human need: touch. An abundance of research has shown that skin-to-skin contact between a mother and newborn yields important physical and psychological benefits.” He says that as we grow into adults, “the importance of touch does not diminish.”

But there might be more to a hug than just being connected to another human. The way you and your partner hug can say a lot about your relationship. 

1. The flying hug

The Flying Hug

This type of hug is one that indicates a relationship full of passion and lust. It plays a large role in creating a bond between you and your partner no matter how long you've been together. The moment you see each other, you want to rip each others' clothes off. However, this could also mean that lust is the only thing you and your partner have going for you and that may not bode well for your relationship. 

2. The reach around

The Reach Around

This kind of hug indicates that you see your partner as more than just a lover, you also see them as your best friend. It indicates a strong connection, physically and emotionally. Both you and your partner share everything with each other and have nothing to hide. However, if you feel like there's no romance or spark during the hug, it could be a sign that you both would be better off as just friends and not romantically involved. 

3. The deadlock

The Deadlock

This type of hug is a full-touch body-crushing hug that indicates a fear of letting go. Trying to get as close as you can to your partner shows that you are deeply committed to them. You don't want to be apart from each other. On the flip side, too much of these kinds of hugs could border on possessiveness that might get out of hand if either you or your partner are the more dominant ones in the relationship. 

4. The protector

The Protector

This kind of hug emanates a sense of security and protection. When your partner wraps their arms around your waist from the back, it's almost like they're literally saying, "I've got your back." Both of you are willing to stand up for and protect each other, whether it is physically or emotionally. It's this stability that paves way for a longer-lasting relationship. However, this type of hug could be a sign for others to back off which means you might need to keep an eye on the relationships you have with your loved ones. 

5. The eye-to-eye

The Eye-To-Eye

This type of hug speaks of a deeply intimate relationship you have with each other. Both of you share a connection to the soul; they say eyes are the windows to the soul. You have an intense love for each other and care about your relationship immensely. Your relationship is one that is extremely strong and nothing can break it. However, you need to watch out for if your partner cannot maintain proper eye contact with you because they might be unwilling to open themselves up to you.
