How A Guy Feels When A Girl Hugs Him – The Top 10 Feelings Revealed

As international dating and relationship coaches, we’ve helped thousands of women understand, attract and keep their perfect match.

That’s why we know exactly what goes on in a guy’s mind, and the secrets behind male psychology.

When a girl hugs them, guys feel a range of emotions including desire, strength, respect and appreciation.

Most girls don’t realize that every guy experiences these feelings when they hug him.

But here’s the thing:

These feelings are fleeting, and can fade away quickly.

(After all, we all know guys have very short attention spans!)

That’s why it’s important to “lock-in” these feelings inside his heart before he turns his focus on another girl.

(Later in this article, we’re going to show you exactly how to do this…)

Read on to find out exactly how a guy feels when you hug him – You’re going to learn a lot about how a man’s mind REALLY works!

1. He Feels Fortunate

It might sound cheesy, but one of the first feelings a guy gets when a girl hugs him is he feels lucky.

This is especially true when it’s a girl he is attracted to!

Here’s what we mean:

If you’re like most people, you wouldn’t hug any random stranger off the street.

In fact, hugs are usually reserved for people who you trust and care for.

From his point of view, you could have chosen to hug any guy…

But you chose him! 

At this point, he will feel fortunate that you trust him enough to hug him.

And if you do this right, you can get him to think about you non-stop afterwards!

2. He Feels A Rush Of Passion

You know that feeling you get when a guy you like gently touches your hand?

You instantly get goosebumps all over, even if it was an accident!

Well, guess what?

Guys feel this way too!

There’s just something about a hug that makes him focus all of his attention on you, and how it feels to have you so close to his body.

Now, most women think that you only get this rush of passion when you hug someone you love.

But here’s something that you probably don’t realize:

The opposite is also true.

When a girl hugs a guy, he feels this rush of passion in his body, which causes him to fall deeper in love with her!

Now, it’s important to note that not EVERY hug will make him fall in love with you.

But if you set-up and frame your relationship properly, he will definitely catch feelings from your hug!

3. Hugs Make Him Feel Loved

Here’s the great thing about giving hugs to guys:

It’s a deeply intimate thing, but at the same time it’s simple and casual too.

That’s why it’s such a great way to make a man feel loved.

At the end of the day, a hug is a sign of affection, even if you’re “just friends” right now.

Now, most girls don’t run around hugging every man they see…

So when you hug a guy, he feels loved and adored.

He might not always show it…

But trust us, they know it’s true!  

Now here’s a bonus trick you can use on a guy you’re already dating:

If you want to put a smile on his face, try surprising him by hugging him from behind…

It works like a charm every single time!

4. Hugs Increase His Desire For You

Ask yourself this:

How can a guy NOT feel desire when a girl reaches out and hugs him? 

He’s human, and it’s completely natural AND normal to feel desire for the person in your arms.

Let’s face it – Guys can get nervous too.

As much as they like to play it cool and not show their emotions, they all feel a little anxious around girls sometimes.

But hugs are a great way to break the physical barrier, without too much pressure or awkwardness.

And once you do this, he will instantly feel a lot more comfortable being together with you, and experience an increased level of desire for you.

5. He Feels Strong

Here’s an interesting fact about men:

They all have one particular need inside their minds.

It’s called the “hero instinct”, and it’s the key to tapping into his deepest emotions and desires.

Here’s what we mean.

Inside every single man’s mind is a primal desire to feel like a hero.

This is literally hardwired into their biology – He simply cannot help it.

So when you give him a hug, you tap directly into this instinct and connect with him on a deep level.

When he has you in his arms, he feels strong and capable.

And if you do everything right, you can use this to make him chase you desperately!

(Be sure to check out our free eBook for more clever ways to make him chase you non-stop!)

6. Your Hug Makes Him Feel Respected

When a girl hugs a guy, there is a special bond created that revolves around respect.

Here’s what we mean:

When you initiate a hug with a guy, you are allowing him to enter your personal space.

This sends a signal that you trust him and respect him enough to do so.

That’s why we always tell our students not to underestimate the power of a simple hug, even if he’s only a crush and you’re not officially dating right now.

It can really show him that your heart is open to him. Think of it as an invitation for him to start chasing you and trying to win you over.

7. He Feels Appreciated 

As we’ve already covered above, hugs can make a guy feel strong and respected…

But above all, guys feel appreciated when a girl hugs them.

And one of the biggest needs inside every human being is the desire to be appreciated by others.

Put yourself in his shoes for a second:

When you give him a hug, you show him how important he is in your life.

It instantly makes him feel special and cherished beyond words.

And because of this, it’s only natural for him to start feeling the same for you!

Let’s be honest here – Isn’t this one of the best feelings in the world?

8. Your Hug Makes Him Feel Complete

Do you ever get the feeling that something or someone is missing in your life?

It’s a weird, nagging, empty feeling that seems to follow you around…

And sometimes, you just can’t quite figure out what’s causing it.

In reality, everyone feels the same way from time to time.

And yes, that includes guys too!

So when you hug a guy, you’re not only making him feel loved and appreciated…

Your hug makes him feel complete.

It takes away any loneliness inside his heart, and fills him up with a waterfall of emotions.

Now here’s an extra tip for you:

Pay attention to how tightly he hugs you back.

The stronger he hugs you, the more he is enjoying your hug and the more complete he feels with you in his arms!

9. He Feels Secure When You Hug Him

Most guys will never admit this:

But when a girl hugs them, they feel secure.

This is a desire that they tend to keep close to their hearts and hide away from the outside world.

This is because men never want to show that they are ever insecure, or that they need this reassurance.

So when you take the lead and give him a hug, not only does he feel safe and secure in your arms…

He also feels accepted by you, and becomes comfortable in opening up and sharing his feelings with you.

Remember: There’s not a lot of people in the world that he feels comfortable sharing these feelings with.

So if you can get him to open up to you, you will definitely be a special person in his life!

10. It Feels Like Magic!

As girls, we all dreamed about that magical relationship with the perfect “Prince Charming” when we were little girls…

But what if we told you that guys have their own fantasies about love too??

Well, it’s true!

You see, every man is looking for that one girl who can give him butterflies in his stomach whenever she’s near.

And believe us: Once he finds this girl, he will NEVER let her go.

Now, not every hug is going to feel like magic to him.

But if you’ve just had a great time together, connected to each other on a deep level, and you get your timing right…

Your hug will feel like a dream come true to him!

Not only does it fill him up with powerful feelings of desire and obsession…

But it also makes him see you as THE ONE girl that he’s been looking for.

That’s why you should never underestimate the power of a hug, as long as you set it up correctly.
