When I say no to a hug, does that mean I'm being rude?, especially for a handsome young boy?.
I thought I have the right to say no, but so many people assume that I'm very rude, they even know that I don't know the guy.

so is it rude to say no for a hug? 


My boyfriend comes from a place with numerous outdoor opportunities and has gone camping his whole life. I grew up in Florida and didn't go camping until I was 16, and was still the first of most of my friends.

He thinks that it is absolutely absurd that some people have never gone camping, and believes they lack a sense of place. He just can't fathom it, and even pities them, even me who started in my teens. I, on the other hand, really view it as a privilege, growing up with old parents in a place with sparse camping options, and also understand that it's not everyone's cup of tea.

So my questions are:
1. Have you ever been camping? If so, at what age did you first go?
2. Do you like camping? Why or why not?
3. Is my boyfriend being an arse or is it just something he does't understand, being from such an outdoorsy place?
