I wanna take a poll to get an idea of what is generally accepted here:
First, how long can a hug be between two friends of opposite gender before it's crossing the boundary between friend and significant other?
Next, imagine 2 friends of opposite genders who are very good friends and are very close. Both are in relationships with other people, and have no feelings for each other. They consider them to be more than friends, saying "they're like family."
they hug nearly every time they see each other, for 20-40 seconds each time. These hugs often involve them messing around and the guy doing things like pinning her to the wall playfully, her giggling, him lifting her in the air, etc.
Do you think that's normal for two friends who are both dating other people? Do you consider this kind of hugging to be merely friendly? Do you think it would be an overreaction for the boyfriend and girlfriend of these friends to be jealous and not okay with this kind of hugging?

I know that different people will have different responses, and some of you may want to say that it depends, but I want to know how YOU would feel and what YOU think about this kind of hugging.

wow. lol.

hugging is hugging. it ain't no big thang.

if something as simple and platonic as a hug can make you jealous then you've got some self-work to get to.

You don't stop hugging your friends just because you're dating someone, lol.

Sounds like a friend who loves giving hugs and has a fun personality.

Step up yo' hugging game. Life is too short to be jealous over a hug between two super friends.

If she's really a good friend. Give it some years until something serious happens. Meanwhile, all you have to do is be there for her. Let her keep hugging you. Yes, its normal.
