A hug is just a way to hide your face...

Why do men have to make things soooo complicated? Just hug each other already! We all know you're in a bromance.

well i thought the first line with the handshakes looks more like business/working realationships and the second line like more familiar relationships, friends, friends/family who congratulate, friends/family who comfort and family hug :D

you've left out the side hug when two large breasted women want to hug but the logistics only leave side hugs available.

Looks like guys are more touchy-feely than women. o.O

It makes sense. Men in society aren't allowed to express emotions, and are thus less emotionally developed than women. Of course they'd feel the need for more affections.

Nah, it means guys have to build up to a full on hug...afraid of looking sensitive perhaps? (lol)

Why are the guys doing the handshake with their left hands?
Reply
:iconiksaxophone:
iksaxophone Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2013
Maybe they're left handed. I'm a lefty, and if I know someone else is a lefty as well, I'll do that. We're a minority (something like 10 percent of the population or less). We like to know there are others like us. XD

You know, I'm a lefty too, and I always shake people's hands with my right one.

Most of the time so do I- it's the more socially acceptable thing to do- but with people I know, you know, you can do things like that.

It's possible that due to the majority of people using their right hand to shake hands that you subconsciously use your right hand to shake hands with others as well, even if you are a lefty. You just got used to using your right hand cause you were surrounded by people who used their right hand. just one possibility :)

I'm not sure if I ever managed to comment on this. This is a warming a piece of work and great observation of people in public - very warming, made me smile. Just out of interest, which country did you make this study? :-)

men hugs (in most cases that I've seen, not all go by these just so you know)

 

1. people who just met/acquaintances

2. acquaintances you've known for awhile/ business partner (new)

3. long term business partner/ friend

4. best friend/ bro

5. best bro

6. family you like and love

7. family

Nah, we just have more things we convey through body language, I look at these and know what meanings they have. (At least what they mean in my part of the world)

They don't want to seem to gay, so different hugs are the only way to express themselves I guess.
