Dipole-dipole interactions are electrostatic interactions between any partially negative atom and any partially positive atom. However, a hydrogen bond is specifically between a partially positive hydrogen atom and a partially negative atom (N, O, or F). Since N, O, and F, are much more electronegative than hydrogen, the dipole is stronger, therefore the polarity is stronger. When the polarity of a bond is strong, the bond itself is also strong.
