Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Hug"

The meaning of "Hug" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does your liking strong hug friend mean?
A: This phrase doesn’t make sense.
Q: What does "hug the crap out of you" mean?
A: Of course 🙂.
Your guess is as good as mine, it’s like the phrase “I’m gonna be the crap out ____” like they wouldn’t literally beat the crap out of someone but it’s a figure of speech which uses the word “crap” for some weird reason nobody really knows.

In this sense any language is weird when you look for its strange characteristics- English just so happens to that much more strange because it uses a lot of borrowed words from a lot of different languages like you don’t need to tell me what a “tsunami” is or what “sayonara” means.

Ah that’d be because it says “bug the crap out of you” In that case it’s an expression of how badly something or someone is bothering you —- like if a child were to constantly kick the back of your seat for 5 minutes nonstop you’d not just be annoyed but very annoyed - so you could say that the kid was annoying the crap out of you because it really wasn’t a pleasant experience.

In this case, it’s more like teasing in a way that implies they’re not gonna stop talking to the other person - like how someone you love can talk nonstop for an entire hour to “bug the crap out of you” but because there’s a sense of love and care, you’re probably not mad at the person but if a total stranger did that? You’d be like “f*cl that guy is annoying”

Q: What does I could grab you with the hug. mean?
A: That sentence isn't entirely correct grammar, but I think the person would be asking if they could hug you.
Q: What does I'm going to hug you too right in afraid of crying mean?
A: Um... Honestly I have no idea because that sentence really doesn't make sense 😳

Other questions about "Hug"

Q: Just hug me. Does this sound natural?
A: You can say that or: "I just need a hug" or "I just want a hug" ^^
Q: why it's not common hug or kissing people in america?
A: Hugging and kissing are considered very intimate in American culture. A hug can often be given to a friend, but you want to be close with the person before hugging, because it's a sign of affection that implies closeness. Kissing is even more intimate. Kissing on the lips is usually only used in romantic relationships, though can also be used in one's immediate family (usually between parents and children). Kissing on the cheek, forehead, or hand can sometimes be used in between friends (in a non-romantic way), but kissing is considered a lot more intimate than a hug and should only be used with people whom you are very close with. Even then, it's good to go on a case-by-case basis: not all people are comfortable with physical affection.
Q: "Give me a hug" and "Hug me" it's the same thing?
A: These sentences are a little confusing in English. They are worded like commands, but people understand them as requests.

"Give me a hug" sounds too forceful. Say, "Would you give me a hug?" It's a more polite way to say it, and it sounds friendly.

People often say "Hug me" when they're sad. It is still a command, but it's understood to mean, "Would you please hug me? I'd ask politely, but it's hard for me to talk right now, because my emotions are so strong."
Q: Can I have a hug with you? Does this sound natural?
A: You can also say : "Can I hug you ?"
Q: If you were here, I could hug you tightly.
If you were here, I could give you a big hug. Does this sound natural?
A: It is better to say "If you were here, I would hug you tightly" or "If you were here, I would give you a big hug." This is because "could" is used to describe "ability." "Would" is used to describe "intention." Therefore, "would" is more appropriate because you are describing an intention to hug someone if he or she was with you.
