I've never understood this and I can't find a straight answer so here I am. I ask you, why is it when we find something cute, we want to hurt it?

For example, people want to pinch the cheeks of cute children. I've heard one lady say of my nephew, "He's so cute, I want to smoosh his little face!"

Where does this feeling come from? And have you ever felt this way?
