Man Hug (adj): an enfolding, friendly (completely platonic) embrace from a man/guy to a woman/ girl.
Given at the right time, a man hug will often markedly brighten a woman's day.
A "girl to girl" hug is usually less effective.
When a woman is particularly "blue," she sometimes, upon seeing a (male) friend, will smile widely and nearly jump into his arms for a man hug, throwing her arms around his neck to bring him to a more comfortable height. The man should squeeze tightly (not too tight!) and put his chin on her shoulder. Soft, contented chuckling from both is normal.
Susie said to Sally, "I'm feeling kind of down today, I could use a nice Man Hug."
Woman: "Oh, look! It's James!" skips over to him with a broad smile and throws her arms around his neck.
See also: embrace, glomp.
