What ever it is it sounds undignified and quite revolting.

Are you from the Church of Scientology or something?

LOL I've seen it done before and it's less revolting in a place where the weather isn't quite so hot or sticky... :?

I doubt it would go over very well here for a variety of reasons.

It sounds awful. Fake sentimentality, rather like flash mobs. It's all me me me me.

Why on earth would I want a hug from a stranger? I think I'd prefer to vomit on my own shoes, at least I'd know where the vomit had been.

I'll keep that in mind if ever we meet (maybe if Ozi rounds us up?? :-P )
Hugs aren't the worst thing in the world. An unexpected hug can on occasion lift a person's spirits. But I think in this culture perhaps some other type of spontaneous random act of kindness would do better than hugs. It's a little too hippyish for this set.

Hippies consumed themselves.

It was fakery.

Love and peace man :)

If you're looking to organize a successful event you'd better get used to a little rejection. Don't be so sensitive. :console:

MyStoryScene,

I just had a read of your posts (see your profile - it's easy - all in one place). You appear to be lonely, judging by the tone and number of your posts all centered around looking for companionship. Judging by this post, I can see why you are lonely. Good luck. You are gonna need it. I can imagine your comment if a 100kg girl with BO and bad breath wanted to get a hug from you......... :roll:
