How to give the perfect Man-Hug

The issue of manly hugs has come up before among my brothers and I think this tutorial is the perfect tool to help those who are not comfortable or familiar with the idea of the manly hug. Special thanks to SamShua for pointing this out.

One note of additional info not fully covered by the video, the hug should be firm, like a bear hug, but not too hard (it shouldn’t hurt). You’re not hugging grandma, let them know you are genuine by hug. Your hug should feel as if you’re going to lift them up off the ground (DO NOT lift them off the ground). This differs from the intimate hug you give your wife where you are trying to “squeeze” her closer to you.

How have you struggled with the man-hug?

    Well, not being a man, I have never struggled with the Man Hug, but I can see where it might get tricky. Hang in there and keep working at it!

    Michele sent me today. Have a great day!

    I feel like I just took a yoga class or learned a new martial art. It was fun! and I think I got the hang of it. I’d like to see one on male to female hugging. Michele sent me.

    That was great! I got a few giggles out of that!

    Oh and Michele told me to say hi.

    I’ve notice that no man has responded to this post yet. Perhaps they’ve watch the video and are now practicing their man-hugging. :D

    You visited me from Michele, now I’m visiting you, so did you send me or Michele? Or did I send me(my real name is also “Michele”)? I’m confused. I love this video and must link to your site with it. I’m glad you commented so I could find you. And, that I found out about Michele’s game…it’s wonderful, and I hadn’t discovered that part of her blog yet. Duh. Looking forward to visiting you again.

    Luke, I have man-hugitis. My whole church knows that and it’s a running joke. So I have been taught much by this video.
