I am a very affectionate person. I love giving and receiving hugs. However, some of my friends are rather allergic to my public displays of affection. How can I show them how much I care about them without scarying them by hugging them??

Dear Hanna the Hugster,
You must be some hugger if you scare your friends. Try a little finese when you hug but don't hug so much. Too much of a good thing turns out TOO BAD. Don't hug them -- You might say instead, I could hug you for what you did or said and let it go at that. Of course if you have a sweetheart let him hug you and then you can reciprocate. That's great to do in this cold - cold weather.
