About This Quiz

How much do you know about the simple hug? It's not the sort of thing you usually think about, is it? But someone had to be the first to do it, right?  And what did that other person feel when they were on the receiving end? Was it natural? Did they return the embrace, or were they all weirded out? Did others see and share it around? The word hug as a verb can be traced to 1560. It may have come from the Norse word "hugga," which meant "to comfort." Were Vikings the first cuddlers in history? Probably not, but that's a fun image.

When you feel close to someone, a simple embrace can say a lot. If you're super close, you can snuggle up together on the sofa and just be together, enjoying the closeness with nothing else going on whatsoever. Or, you know, things can get a little more intimate with a special someone. It's all up to you and the way you like to cuddle. So what exactly does your cuddle style say about you? Why don't you sit right here next to us on the sofa and under the blanket, and take the quiz? It'll be fun!
