Nothing to Hide, Believe What I Say

Story Sent in by Amy:

In college I met up with my date Eddie in a park. When he first saw me he said, "I'm a hugger. It cool if we hug?"

I said, "Okay..." and he hugged me. Close and tight. He didn't let go.

I pushed him away but still he held on. I shoved at him and he didn't let go but laughed hysterically. We were in public for God's sake! He hung on until I smashed a fist against the side of his head.

He staggered back but then came at me with a smile and open arms again. I backed away and ran off. I think he gave up chasing me after a few moments but I didn't stop until I had made it at least a half mile away.

  1. The nerve of people hugging in public!Keep your first base attempts at home!Op,"Saying "Stop" and "no" firmly and loudly is a good way to let a serial huger know when they are over hugging.He tried to hug op,not strangle and she punched him in the head without telling him how she felt with words and then he smiled like the hugging psycho that he is and gave chase.But alas his heart was not into it.OP obviously has intimacy and communication issues and serial huger just wanted love...or to add another body to his basement...
    Who knew that park dates could go so awry?

  2. He stopped chasing after a few moments? How long was each moment? What was the dividing point between said moments?

    1. Your questions aren't very pertinent to the story Steve. I can only score this comment 5/7.

    2. Darn! I wanted SEVEN stars! Because we all know that's the standard way to rate things.

    3. Only the elite are using this way. What was that? They're not and I'm just crazy? Well I give that 5/7.

      Also, OP. I can promise you this guy is insane. Or just mildly strange. You know what, I can't actually promise you anything. What I can do is congratulate you on a bullet well-dodged.

    4. Bananas! I want to take a selfie in front of Chick Fil A with you!

    5. The bullet wasn't dodged. The bullet was punched and slapped and yelled at. Was a heat seeking sticky bullet

  3. You would think getting a simple hug would be pretty nice, like snuggling with your dog, but....

  4. So you had an awkward hug.
    Maybe he thought he could make up for it.
    Maybe he just liked snuggling your boobs.
    Perhaps he was trying to whisper in your ear.
    And he only chased you for for one more hug, anyway.

    Or just maybe it's what Smiles said and he really did just want to add another body to his basement collection.

    3. Sorry Bananas, I've been off my game lately. I've been having some issues with my daughter lately. And I took a bad fall last week. I also keep running out of data on my phone so it's hard to keep up. I know these sound like excuses for not posting a lot of funny GIFs, but I promise to get my shit together. For now though, I just need a Happy Meal to make it through the rest of the day.

    4. It's okay, Archy, crit happens. After all, when you work nonstop and only ingest ingredients that are found in NoDoze, there comes a point where you just zone out. I mean, it's hard to maintain a happy face or be a comedian when you've got to fix problems that people didn't think through the first time around. But hopefully you're at least getting some at home to ease the stress, otherwise you might end up offending your clients.

      But I don't want to get into a link-war here. After all, we think alike so we have to stick together! But also I'm wasting some serious billable time while I write this, instead of finishing some foundation details for a permit set that has to get out the door next week. So I don't know about you, but I have to get back to the shackles that chain me to my desk.

    5. You're right AG, I've got this killer RCP I'm working on while listening to some good tunes. But I know how to loosen up. I'm taking the family to the beach this weekend.

  5. This dude takes hugging to Liam Neesons levels - "I have a certain set of skills...I will find you, and I will hug you"

    1. A year's worth of the Architect's and Archie Girl's wisdom wasted on you!

    2. They teach us this in architecture school. Seriously, I'm not kidding. We're literally taught how to speak like everything we say is 100% correct no matter what we say.

    3. Example:
      Me: The moon is slowly falling towards the earth and will one day kill us all. That's why my thesis is a bunker built under a mountain.
      Professor: I'm not sure that's correct.
      Me: I stand by my design. Also, I put this cool curved wall in.
      Professor: Holy shit, that's amazing! A+
