Have you ever had one of those days when all you want is a good old fashioned hug from another human? Well, if you’re short on people to embrace, this news will be welcome to you.
A growing number of websites are offering a sort of cross between “OK Cupid” and “Tinder” for those of us wanting to seek out a fellow cuddler in our local area. It’s simple: you meet up, you cuddle. The end.
It's pretty much a tick a box situation with preferences related to gender, ethnicity, distance and marital status all accounted for in the profile information. The aim is to find your 'perfect match' for cuddle-only activities.
If that all sounds a bit formal, reddit forum group r/cuddlebuddies serves the same purpose, just without the need to set up a profile. While it may seem a little strange to some of us, 4, 300 current contributors on the forum would disagree.
