This is NOT rude and addresses the point immediately. There is no nice way of telling someone to respect your personal space. There is no “correct” way of demanding respect you deserve. Log in to Reply Say something like, “Yes. [Hugs ] There we go, bring it in, come on. Pelvis to pelvis. Let’s go, tip-to-tip, there we go. The kids call this “docking”.

Log in to Reply If you can’t talk to them about it…every time they hug you just dead arm and don’t hug back, they’ll stop hugging you pretty quickly Log in to Reply Hug them back longer and harder, they will stop surely Log in to Reply Tell them that hugging reminds you of the lack of affection you received when you were a child, which sends you into a tailspin of uncontrollable thoughts of inferiority and abandonment, continuing to circle through your head well into the early hours of each morning. The resulting lack of sleep inevitably will lead to insomnia-induced psychosis, culminating into a decades-long substance abuse problem leaving you with permanent health issues and a pet sock you call “Sandy”. Let them down gently. Log in to Reply Cough… a lot… Log in to Reply Ow, my spine! My spine! ow! Log in to Reply If you’re not comfortable with being honest and making your boundaries clear, you could opt to make up a new ‘move’, like a high five or silly dance (whatever works in your context). Log in to Reply Just tell them nicely Log in to Reply Don’t take a shower for a week… Log in to Reply just start dating man Log in to Reply casually pat their ass Log in to Reply Tell them to stop Log in to Reply Wait wut? Why do you have to be nice. You are there to do a job and get paid. I have only hugged 3 times in the past five years and it was because the person was going through EXTREME personal loss. Fellow employees are not your friends. Log in to Reply I have diahorreah. And if you touch me, it’ll come out Log in to Reply Mention COVID. Sure, they may lose respect depending on political affiliation but they also won’t feel down about themselves. Could also be direct if you’re open to a more intense and honest conversation but sometimes they’re just tedious and unnecessary. Log in to Reply A boner.

Log in to Reply Fart really loudly Log in to Reply Smell bad. …oh wait that’s not nice. Log in to Reply Hug them back harder and longer. Log in to Reply Start moaning with pleasure. Log in to Reply Had an older lady constantly doing this, giving me compliments and such. I don’t think it was ever sexual or anything, it’s just the way she expresses that she likes me as a person. For some reason though, I was very uncomfortable. I never had anyone at work touching me in any way, especially not my chest or arms. So I told her “Excuse me, but I really don’t feel comfortable with you touching me”. She got kind of angry, and didn’t speak to me for about a year. She stopped touching me, and now we’re just “Hello” and “Have a good day” people, and it’s great. Log in to Reply Be firm and say can you please stop hugging me. Log in to Reply When they hug you, just whisper in their ear that you shat yourself. Guaranteed no feelings will be hurt Log in to Reply Grab their genitals. Log in to Reply say that you have the flu Log in to Reply Remind them we’re in a pandemic and should be minimising contact. Works with my in-laws that come from a long line of huggers and kissers.
