What are some reasons that some people do not likes hugs or being hugged?

Could it be that they feel it is too personal ? That their space is being invaded?

Could it be that they only reserve this type of endearment for close friends and family members only?

Were they / could they have been abused at one point in their life , the reason they shy away from being hugged or touched in any manner?

Or is it that they are claustrophobic and they feel smothered or closed-in when someone hugs them?
