I was hugged today by Zane’s daycare lady. I wanted to make sure I wasn’t going to have to find new daycare so I asked if she would be willing to take a new baby. She asked how old were they and I said it won’t be for another 10 months. And she got all excited I was pregnant and gave me a big hug.
I’m just not a hugger. I’m not really into touching other people outside my husband and son. Even hugs with my mom are awkward. (Yes I know that’s probably why I am this way.) People who know me know this and they try to respect me in this, but I still get a weird hug here or there. I try not to cringe and I really hope that they can’t tell I am when I do get hugs.
I’ve tried to be more open to hugs from others, but it’s just not me. I’m not touchy-feely with my friends. I only hug relatives if I have to. I hug and kiss Zane everyday, because I hope I won’t pass on this trait.
Am I really the only one who doesn’t like hugs? Is it because my family wasn’t touchy-feely or because it’s just me?
