** At the end of ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'', Hermione runs up to Harry and gives him a big hug, and then turns to Ron, who holds out his arms a little bit. They end up shaking hands instead of hugging. This is a indicative of Hermione's feelings - hugging Harry is just hugging a friend, but Ron might be more and she's not yet ready to deal with this.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Left with no one else to commiserate with, Cersei bears her hidden anguish to her hated younger brother, Tyrion, who realizes that he should do ''something'' to comfort his sister in spite of their antipathy. As he reluctantly walks toward her, he can't find any words to say and can't even hold her gaze, much less hug her. He ends up standing awkwardly beside her as she weeps.

** ''Series/DoctorWho'' also has the Twelfth Doctor react in an un-hug manner when Clara hugs him for the first time (in fact he takes the exact same pose as the man in the top photograph here). He gets better at it as time goes by.
