It went well, I'm still not sure if I was reading into the hugs and the quiet talking or not, but nothing bad happened and I mostly visited with his wife. Thanks for asking :-)

Thanks for the ideas Evangeline! :-)

I'm being more careful around him, but it seems to change from time to time whether I feel uncomfortable around him or not. Who knows.

How did it go.
At least his wife was there if anything did happen. Just be VERY cautious.

You gotta learn to be assertive:) You can stand up for yourself without being rude. Tell him that even though you know he means you no harm, it makes you uncomfortable and you'd like him to stop...
Stay safe

Thanks for your replies, girls! :-) They were very helpful!
I decided that I would only go for two hours instead of the full day, and that I would stick close to his wife. Thankfully they live in a condo so it's pretty small and there's like no privacy.
You are so right, I sooo do not want to be rude that I take unnecessary chances. I just don't know how to change that.

Maybe you should mention to him that it made you uncomfortable? I know exactly how you feel about the hugging thing. I'm not comfortable with hugs like that, either, and I know that I can get a little carried away with the meaning of a hug. I would trust your feelings, though, because many women don't and end up in a bad situation. But bring it to his attention! Maybe he meant nothing by it, or maybe he did.

Always trust your gut feeling, it's a problem with us women, we don't wanna appear rude, so we walk into a situation that feels wrong/ uncomfy just so we don't hurt anyone's feelings. Play it safe and follow yr instincts.
