a visual on how to let someone know you do not hug people of the opposite sex
I'm not a big hugger, never have been...my personal space with most people is orangutang arms length. I have become skilled in avoiding hugs from those I don't want them from. tense body, furrowed brow, slow or fast step backwards depending on the incoming huggers speed, hell, I'd learn to moonwalk if it would help .
now, in R, it's even more a boundary for me, for additional reasons, and is one mr unfound has as well. I'm sure it's not an issue for some, but it's a part of our R .
might try this technique next time a repeat hugger doesn't get the message!
I put this in R to show that there are always ways to defend your boundaries when people try to cross them (even innocently). plus it's frigging hilarious
