Yes this really is a post about the word glomp. The definition(s) can be found in the Urban Dictionary (here), however definition number one states, that it is “NOT sexual, it is the action of one person lovingly (and dramatically) attacking another with a hug.
A glomp is often predatory and lies somewhere in the grey area between a caring embrace, and a flying leap to tackle someone.
The term is used extensively in anime culture, as well as online in text form (anime because many anime characters do this often, and online because it is short and descriptive).” Apparently this is what’s done when you are overwhelmed with joy at seeing someone. I find every bit of this hysterically appropriate for my personality and will now be incorporating the “glomp” into my many eclectic methods/forms of greetings.
