This sunday morning my girl said she didn't have time to cuddle..and that I shouldn't care so much because guys don't like that stuff anyway


-I told her guys need to cuddle too..but she pretend like she didn't hear me and just left to do her girl things..I didn't say anything about this since because i'm feeling a some embarrasment..

but I did tell my friend last night and he said that he doesn't like to cuddle with his girl..and I should be happy about this situation- lucky he we were drinking White Russians (thanks Versace.)..and he drank more than me so I don't think he'll remember this conversation.

I got to ask the forum here..do you think that its strange for guys to need to cuddle too? -why should only girls need this?

If it's my wife; yes I do like them. However, I detest the habit that ladies have of giving hugs as greetings and farewells - I do not particularly want to hug a business associate or casual acquaintance.

I've never really understood why Western socieities are so touch-phobic. It's a hug, it's not going to kill you. Occasionally they feel nice...

This is again a rather American phobia, and to an extent Anglo. Continental European cultures are quite touchy what with the cliched French double-kiss, etc. You can also see men linking arms when walking together.

Emphasis on occasionally, the reason I do not like it is because I do not have intimate feelings for that person. I cannot understand why it is the cultural fash in London for ladies to hug. My friends' wives will always try to grab me rather than shake my hand; I don't like it if I see my wife hugging other men, in the same way she does not like it when she sees other women hugging me.

Yes, in London it is similar to Continental Europe, and by hug the kiss on both cheeks is included for female locals from this part of town becuase they think it is the fash.

Cuddle is a seated spoon. My advice is to get your spooning in at night.

In response to the 1st part of your post, this sounds odd for a woman. I tend to want what your partner wants, whilst she wants to talk etc...


In respose to your reply to me, tell her, I drink tea, I talk, I DRINK TEA AND TALK, does this make me a girl?
