Guys are known for putting themselves out there a bit more frequently and apparently than women, though it’s far from always the case.

But, what about when it comes to cuddling? Will guys really cuddle with any girl looking for a snuggle buddy? Read on below and find out the fully explained truth!

Do Guys Cuddle With Just Any Girl?

Believe it or not, not ALL guys out there want to cuddle with just any girl. More than a fair share of guys do indeed feel just fine with cuddling any girl that they can snuggle themselves up to.

However, even these cuddle-anyone types of guys typically have a reason for cuddling, even if it is with just any girl.

Reasons Guys Cuddle With Any Girl

From wanting to make you feel safe and protected to simply being horny and having mixed feelings, there are several significant reasons guys will cuddle just any girl:

1. He Wants to Make You Feel Safe

Despite your relationship status, if you seem like a damsel in distress, be sure that guys want to make you feel safe, and cuddling is their go-to move.

To these live-action super-hero defenders of women types, it doesn’t matter if you met fifteen years ago, or five minutes ago, if the chance arises, these guys are going for it. They’ll cuddle without feelings (sometimes without warning) with any girl that wants to get their snuggle on.

2. He Thinks You’re Sad

Similarly to when a guy wants to make you feel protected when you seem vulnerable, if you seem sad they want to cheer you up.

Cuddling, of course, is an excellent way to cheer up anyone who has a pulse and sexual reproductive organs.

You don’t need to be having sex, or even thinking about it, for cuddling with the opposite sex to lift your spirits.

3. He Wants to Get to Know You

Guys don’t just cuddle girls they know, they also cuddle without feelings when they want to get to know you as well.

In their minds, it couldn’t hurt!

4. He Thinks You’re a Good Friend

Guys also cuddle with girls that they believe are their good friends (yes, believe it or not, there is such thing as guys who cuddle their friends and don’t have sex with them).

These cuddles feel comfortable and aren’t as intimate as they are nonromantic and friendly. These are not the cuddles from a desperate guy trying to get laid.

5. He is Horny

When some guys are horny, they will cuddle anything (and I mean anything).

6. He’s Lonely

Guys that are super-lonely are much like desperate and horny men (… probably because they ARE desperate and horny men).

That means they are willing to happily cuddle anything that could result in a makeout session, sex, or even just a bit of platonic affection and/or physical contact.

7. He Wants to Be Sex Partners

That’s right, girls. Some guys don’t care about anything, except about what’s between your legs and how they are going to get into it.

Cuddling is a key to the southern gate, and if he wants to be a sex partner with you, the chances are that he knows it.

8. He Has Mixed Feelings

When guys have mixed feelings, they’ll still cuddle with you. It’s sort of like the old motto: kill’em all, let God sort ’em out… except a bit more fluffy.

In other words, his motto may be: cuddle’em all and sort your feelings out later.

Should You Cuddle on a First Date?

There is no right or wrong answer to whether or not you should cuddle with a guy on your first date. The mood of the evening, your surroundings, his body language, and many other factors come into play.

If the evening is chill, and the circumstances arise for some natural cuddling, there’s nothing wrong with seeing where things go.

The Difference Between Friendly Cuddling and Romantic Cuddling

The main difference between friendly cuddling without feelings and romantic cuddling is that you’re just physically close, but aren’t kissing, squeezing, or touching each other in your private parts when you’re cuddling as friends.

That said, friendly cuddling can easily get out of hand and turn into romantic cuddling at any time and end up in a crazy and unexpected makeout session or even hot steamy mind-blowing earth-shattering sex (not that we’re speaking from personal experience, uh, or anything like that…).

Romantic cuddling is when you go into the snuggle session and know that it is likely to end up in kissing, squeezing, teasing, whispering sweet nothing, and potentially sexual intercourse.

Why is Cuddling Important in Relationships?

Cuddling is important in relationships for several reasons. The most crucial is that it produces oxytocin, which drastically increases the depth of your romantic feelings for each other.

Another major reason cuddles are critical for relationships is that they profess your love and show your trust for each other.
