Posted:So sorry for this, but I have a rant, and I need advice yet again.

Zeik is home (Happiness and joy ubblove)
I need him to hold me, and its driving me crazy because he just doesn't get it. I am head over heels in love with him, but its driving me crazy. Guys, how do I tell him what I need without sounding like I'm nagging or needy? confused

Any advice would be appreciated
ubblove and hug2
Ash

Posted:How about hugging him a lot more and telling him how good it feels to have him hold you?

Or, just come out and say you want to be held more. Drop the NEED word, and it suddenly sounds a lot nicer.

Or, even better, tell him you like the feeling of his strong biceps and chest against you, or something else putting the need to be held as a desire for parts of his body that he can be proud of.

Basically, dress it up, and don't forget, if you TRULY love him, then you don't NEED his hugs, but they would be nice...

Posted:hmm...i reckon you have a few options here...



1) arms out, cute smile and in an even cuter voice say loudly "HUG ME" hug



or



2) make up a book of 30 cheques that are valid for one hug each...give them to him and tell him they are only valid for a month and only with you



or



3) tell him straight out. say 'i love you and i love your arms around me. hug me dammit!' ok maybe not the dammit bit...



or



4) (and this one will be a bit harder!) don't touch him for a whole day! just look lovingly at him...*hopefully* he will get the hint or just won't be able to resist holding you!



biggrin *fingers crossed* much luck and lovely hugs to you!!

Posted:Being with a person who is not overly affectionate all the time I totally understand (although at other times I need a crowbar to get him off me)...

My way of getting a hug in the moments where he is not being affectionate is just by tapping him on the shoulder and just simply saying...."can I please get a hug"...give him the puppy dog eyes at the same time...trust me most men can't go passed that.

Another one is by saying "I've had a rough day I could really use a hug."

Good luck!

Posted:Yeah, I was gonna say the same thing about like, complementing certain parts of the body. I would go for simple things like just snuggling under one of his arms while he's sitting and saying something like "I love having your arms around me." Hopefully he'll catch on. wink

Posted:Yes taking my top off would probably be going to far. It would be one thing when we are alone, but not in public, and especially not because I live with my mom.

See, he can be extremely affectionate when we are alone, but you get people around and it is almost impossible to get him to touch me on his own. I'm always the one that, for lack of a better term, initiates any physical contact between us. It is so annoying, and I am an extremly physically affectionate person. I am addicted to physical contact.

Posted:dnt know if hes like a lot of other guys, but we like having to make the first move about as much as you do. You hav to be very obvious, so as a kind of anology giv him a big wiggle and a big smile. After getin signals wrong before it would take nekedness for me to start nethin most of the time.

Posted:Do what I do, let him know how much you love him and that the safest place in the world is in his arms. Works with my Jason >^.^<... but he's a hugger anyway. You can also try snuggling into his chest and that *should* plug him into plug mode. When he goes in for the cuddle hit him with the *safest place* thing, guys like to feel like big protectors, especially to the fairer sex, so it'll play on his ego. and if all else fails plant a big wet one on him and hug him tight, or wrap his arms around you for him. He he he, or you could always start glomping him >^.^<

Posted:Okay, this is just like money in the bank.

For no reason whatsoever walk up to him and say "aww, you look like you need a hug."

Then whenever you want you can just say (with pouty kind of look of course) "Mmmm, you owe me a hug" BOOM money in the bank.

p.s it works with doing the dishes as well......i.e i did the dishes, ergo i get a hug. I probably wouldn't use the word ergo though. Enough, back in my box.

Posted:Ok here is what I would do:-



You say "I require hugs, sometimes in private and sometimes in public. When I need a hug I will give you this sign"



*make a motion that you wouldn't do in your normal life such as slap your thigh in a panto style*



"If you don't fulfil my needs, this is what will happen to you, no matter where we are!"



* rugby tackle him to the floor and leap on his chest. Holding his arms down with your knees tickle him till he cries for mercy or wets his pants*



"you see its simple, hug me or get splatted!!!"

hug

Posted:I couldn't live without hugs and cuddles. I generally say "Come here and hug me now", or "Give me a cuddle". Make sure it's not a question, rather a command, but obviously in a nice tone of voice. Noone who has any form of feelings for you, even if they're only a friend, will be able to resist.

And here's a free one.

I get how you feel, my girlfriend can be the same way. Even just around our friends and stuff, she just doesn't really like PDA...any kind at all. It took me a while to break her down. So I don't know if it's the same thing, but I just started with small things like holding hands and just kinda started adding things once she was comfortable and stuff like that.

So...maybe start small, and he'll get the hang of it and get to be more o.k. with it.
