7 Reasons Men Like (But Don’t Love) to Cuddle

The assumption is men do not like to cuddle.  There is nothing further from the truth.  Men like to cuddle, they just aren’t crazy about it.

While writing this article I came across some studies proving men value cuddling more than women.  As a married man, I have no issues with cuddling.  I really do like to cuddle, but I’m just not crazy about it.

Sometimes I want to be all snug with my wife.  Sometimes I need a little bit of breathing room.  Honestly, sometimes she wants to cuddle, and sometimes she doesn’t.

Cuddling can be good, but it can also be uncomfortable.  It will also trigger certain thoughts and feelings in a man.  The important thing to remember is men like to cuddle, so it doesn’t always mean they want something.  And it definitely doesn’t mean they are less of a man.

Check out the following pics and learn why men like to cuddle, but they just aren’t that crazy about it.

    Body to body...naked.  That doesn't sound too bad to me.  Throw in a comfortable bed and warm blankets.  I am good!  The game is on...what game???  Plus later on, when you both wake up...you are already in the nude!

    Long day at work, or home?  Yes, put your feet up and relax (put your guard down).  Your man loves that!  Seriously, your man does want you to relax, and he loves the fact you are able to do so with him.

    Why wouldn't any man like that numb feeling in your hand when the sleep weight of another person is laying on it for a while?  This definitely falls under the "men aren't crazy about it" category.
