XOXO- Brothers do not mind hugs but hate kisses!

Do you have a younger brother or do you have an elder sister? If yes, do all brother hate being hugged or kissed by their elder sisters? I have seen elder brothers don’t mind a peck or two at them by their younger siblings. But usually a brother who is younger, hates being kissed! Many of my friends said this is true in their homes. Random hugs and kisses annoy the little brothers! For us girls, well mostly, expression of love through Xs and Os i.e. hugs and kisses are important. I was wondering why younger bunch from mars hate it!
My younger brother hates being kissed. He doesnt mind long hugs, but dare we kiss him- he repels! His reflexes to our pecks have become strong. It might be because men hate being treated like a child, they want to be looked upon as a stronger shoulder, an independent identity. While we women love to express our love physically, men express theirs by caring for us. So while an elder brother doesn’t mind being kissed, younger ones do mind it.

I have known instances where girls dating a younger guy faced a strong retaliation and mis-judged their care with interferance. They wanted to be looked upon as stronger and reliable. On the other hand elder male partners didn’t mind depending too much emtionally on their female counterparts. Most of them appreciated being taken care of. May be they knew at the end of the day they own the throne!

      BTW I dint say arrogance but there is a certain kind of strength boys want to exhibit- they hate to be seen as younger lots and that sort of pampering I feel!

  4. So far my son still welcomes his sister's goodnight hugs and kisses. It simply isn't bedtime without sharing the love around. He is 8, and she is 13. ♥

    1. Kathy Touchwood! But wait till he turns 13 and she turns 18! Though I wish things don't change but I guess it all comes during teenage!

  5. This made me smile. Dont have brothers, so don't know about that! But my son when he was a kid, hated being kissed. He would instantly wipe the cheek or forehead with the back of his hand! Thankfully he doesn't do that now :D
    Congratulations for your 200th post! Cool achievement :)

  7. Congratulations for the 200th post! I have a younger brother, 11 years younger to me. We live in different cities and whenever we meet I do greet him with a hug and kiss, he doesn't mind it. But I wonder if I would be doing that sort of thing if we were living in the same home. Or if at all I did that how would he be responding to that regular behaviour. Should ask him :) Interesting post :)
