Patting the upper back while hugging
This is a hug most commonly seen between friends. If used by a lover it can have a few meanings. Firstly, it could mean a person is not attracted to the one they are hugging and so is avoiding intimacy and instead showing friendship. It could mean that the huger does want the person they are hugging but is worried about taking things further than the friendship stage. Finally, when used in public, this hug can illustrate a desire to keep the relationship secretive because those who see the hug will view it as a sign of friendship and not of love. The one way in which this hug can be a good sign between lovers is if it is used along with other, more intimate kinds of hungs, in which case it suggests that the two people involved are both lovers and very close friends.
