Is there anything better than snuggling up to the one you love? Cuddles are definitely a big part of romance. The problem is that so many couples thing that a simple hug on the sofa has to lead to sex, when it really doesn’t. Sometimes it’s nice to sit on the sofa and cuddle up to your other half, whilst you watch a favourite movie.
I could bleat on about the scientific reasons behind it all – physical contact, pheromones, hormones, subliminal messages, blah, blah, blah. (Wow, that was far too many commas!) But do we really need to know why cuddles are considered romantic? Let’s just be happy with the fact that they are.
Everyone loves a cuddle…
Cuddles and hugs are way to show each other that after all you’ve been through, you still love each other. We hug because we care, and it’s important in a relationship to show that on a regular basis. Even if it’s not an entire night in front of the telly, you could still wake up and give him / her a cuddle to say good-morning. You could still give a quick hug before the other one leaves for work to say good-bye.
No matter how long you’ve been together, it’s important to still cuddle.
From my own relationship’s point of view, I love nothing more than getting the kids into bed and settling down, snuggled up to my husband. After a particularly hard and stressful day, sometimes just feeling his arms wrapped around me can take it all away. It makes me feel safe and secure, and loved. And isn’t that what we all crave?
