Well, keep in mind the European culture isn't huggable at all. Culturally it's much more acceptable to hug in America than in Europe. It's also easier to accept you as huggable when we thought that's how you were all along instead of getting used to you being non-huggable for a long time and then you immediately changing how you want to relate in this foreign-culture way (which is how I'm sure this huggable stuff would appear to a Belgium person, no?).
