The way you hug your partner can tell you a lot about your personality

We all have our own little quirky things that we do and this is amplified in a relationship – mainly because your other half points them out to you and then you get paranoid about the fact that you only sneeze in multiples of three.

But apparently, the way that you hug your partner can reveal things that you didn’t know about your personality. Check out the points below to see how your actions match up and what they could mean.

1. Hand in pocket

This kind of hug suggests that you might be a little worried about their faithfulness if your hand is always in your partner’s pocket. (But you probably just like feeling your other half’s bum.)


2. Face to face

They say that your eyes are windows to your soul. So if you and your partner are constantly lost in each other’s gaze in this kind of embrace, it suggests that you’re deeply connected.


3. Arms around the shoulder

This hug shows that not only is your significant other your romantic partner, they are your best friend too. Typical hand handing just doesn’t cut it anymore as you want to show how unbreakable you guys are.


4. Pat on the back

This is a supportive but less romantic hug. It might suggest that you aren’t as into them as they are into you if you’re the one holding their back. It is seen as a way to give off a very friendly vibe in public.


Some eye-opening stuff so far. Take a look at the next page for more revelations about the way you hug your significant other.

5. I got you

There’s not a more literal way to show that you have your partner’s back than to stand behind them whilst hugging them. You’re protective and know what you two have is special.

6. The tight hug
This “never-let-go” type hug suggests just that. You never want to be apart and fear losing them. It also shows you absolutely adore them and only want the best for your other half.
I think we’ve learnt something here. Which way do you tend to hug your partner? And does it match up with your personality? Either way, I say hug away and your true feelings will be felt. You might want to take notes from the kangaroo in the video on the next page though…
