19 Reasons Why Cuddling Is The Greatest Thing In The World

It's just really nice.

Posted on

1. It's like hugging someone you like, only you're using less energy because you're lying down instead of standing up.

It's seriously the best interaction you can have with another human being.

2. Cuddling is perfect for cold winter nights because human warmth is warmer than a blanket.


3. While sex is great, cuddling is the true physical act of love.

4. Plus, cuddling is sex for those who are just too damn tired.

5. Cuddling can help turn a terrible day into a good one.

You can have the worst day ever, but it's nothing that a little cuddling can't handle.

6. When you're spooning, it's nice to know your body can exchange warmth and positive vibes without eye contact.


7. Although the big spoon might complain about a bunch of hair in their face and a dead arm, it's still totally worth it.

8. When words aren't enough to express how much you love and care for a person, you cuddle.

9. When you're apart from your S.O., you'll miss a lot of things about them. But what you will miss the most is the cuddling.

Pillows make for a bad substitute.

10. The goosebumps you get from a good cuddle is one of the greatest feelings in the world.

11. Especially when it makes the hairs in the back of your neck stand up. That's when you know you got a keeper.

12. Cuddling is the perfect, non-verbal way of telling someone, "Yo. I trust you."

13. A nice, overnight cuddle can be stronger than an "I love you."


14. Cuddling is the perfect test for any relationship.


Anyone can have sex. But if you can cuddle for hours on end with someone, then you know you're on the right track.

15. When you can cuddle with someone platonically, you know you've found a friend for life.

16. Cuddling makes you a happier and healthier person.

It's not an opinion. It's science.

17. Cuddling with the right person is the closest you'll come to feeling perfect.

Even if the feeling lasts only a brief moment.

18. It generally feels great to hold someone you care about.


19. It also feels great to be held by someone who cares about you.


There are days you can't hack it anymore. You don't want to cry, you don't want to talk, you don't want to do anything. All you want to do is cuddle... and it's just what you need.
