mylam said:"Hold" is often of longer duration, and can (but doesn't necessarily) have more sexual overtones. It can also be more like "cuddle". In most cases the two phrases are interchangeable.
jrod said:What if you were to change "abrazarte" to "abrazo" as in
Dame un abrazo--"Give me a hug"
Dame un abrazo--"Give me a hold"?
Please correct me....I'm still learning
Right.. Hold me tight or hug me tight both work but give me a hold does not..It would be Hold meArtrella said:Ok, but you can say give me a hug but not give me a hold. You say hold me tight or hug me tight. Am I right?

No I ment whom you were speaking about..
Hold is a little more "PROPER"
If you were speaking to say a boyfriend, husband, children then I would say hug..
If it was to someone thet you are just getting to "Know" then I would say hold..
But that is just my opinion
Art;Artrella said:You know, I always thought that "to hold you tight" was, let's say, more romantic than "hug" and thought that "hold" was more appropriate for lovers, and "hug" more appropriate for your kids for instance.
te gato said:Art;
It is much more romantic..So when you first meet someone the romance is a big thing..You say things like Hold me all night long..Hold me forever..
once married. .......With kids, bills, a dog, dirty dishes, laundry piled to your arm pits..It turns into...Give me a hug!... Usually as everyone is running out the door!!!
You are right Artrella. jrod and the others are correct to say "give me a hug is correct while give me a hold is not". You are also 100% correct in your thinking in the above quotation.Artrella said:You know, I always thought that "to hold you tight" was, let's say, more romantic than "hug" and thought that "hold" was more appropriate for lovers, and "hug" more appropriate for your kids for instance.
