Keep an eye out for these 7 hugs from guys.

What does it mean when a guy squeezes you in a hug? This article will tell seven different hugs mean. To figure out what he means, you have to look at other people's body language. It could show that he likes you more than a friend, or that he thinks of you as one of the guys.

1. The bear hug 

The bear hug is one of the most common hugs to receive from a friend that hasn't seen you in a long time. This hug also signals that he feels protective over you or that he likes you a lot. More than anything else, the bear hug shows safety.

2. Cuddle hug

During a cuddle hug, both parties wrap their arms around each other. The guy squeezes the girl a little bit, but both parties are comfortable. Cuddle hugs tend to last longer than other types of hugs and can be awkward if they happen in front of other people.

3. A simple embrace

Sometimes a guy's hug includes a quick squeeze. This is when the guy squeezes you briefly while hugging you. Often, this simple hug doesn't seem to fall into a category, which can make it confusing. Typically, he's squeezing you to show that he cares about you.

4. Resting heads hug 

A resting head hug is when both parties rest up against each other. If he is taller than you, he will gently rest his head on top of yours. This is one of the most popular types of boyfriend hugs. It tells you that he's there for you and supports you.

5. Embracing you from behind

Wrapping his arms around you from behind is an intimate hug. You won't usually be on the receiving end of a back hug unless he cares deeply about you. Close friends that don't have feelings for you don't give you a protective hug from behind.

6. The big squeeze hug

When a man hugs you but it's not tight enough to count as a bear hug, it's this type of hug. He may feel protective of you and close to you. This could be because he views you as more than a friend or because the two of you are very close as friends.

7. The London Bridge embrace

This type of hug is one of the most awkward and puts distance between the two people involved. It's a clear indicator that he doesn't have strong feelings for you. You can often feel awkward when giving or receiving this hug, especially if it's someone you've never met.
