    Hi guys,

    How to say "give me a hug" in french?

    This is my try:Prends-moi dans tes bras.

    Thanks

    My feeling on the subject is that "Dans mes bras !" or "Viens dans mes bras !" does correspond to "give me a hug", whereas "Prends moi dans tes bras !" is more like "hold me !". I would say the first to a friend or to a child, but the second only to my lover... Or is it just me?

    I agree fully. "Prends moi dans tes bras !" = "hold me real close", "give me a warm hug"
