    So I've been talking to this guy Sam.

    He kinda makes my day perfect. He's the only thing I look forward to. When we're not together we are almost always texting. But there are sometimes where he just doesn't text me. I break down during these times. I get really sad and overreact when he doesn't text me. Like for...

    I was looking through my experiences,

    and they are chock full of I want this, I want that, all related to a close friend or person of the opposite sex, and I realized that I'm really needy. Everything I do or want is centered around people. I need them. They don't need me. It's hard to admit that sometimes, and even...

    Losing A Deep Connection Hurts Like Hell!

    I seemed to have lost a deep connection with a dear dear friend. And the worst part is, my friend doesn't seem to feel the same loss. My friend tries to tell me that the connection is still there and that this is just a new "phase" in our friendship that involves less quality...

    "you're Such A Baby"

    I get atatched easily because I crave intimacy and affection and cry over things if I feel like I'm not gettign attention. And it's frustrating that in order to keep a guy you have to withhold information and not be needy--but I can't help it--I CRAVE closeness and hugging and...

    So What?

    It's not surprise I'm not emotionally needy but needy in general. I know what I need and want, plus I'm not ashamed, nor will I apologize for not denying my needs.

    There's A Hole In My Bucket....

    "Emotionally needy." Yup, that sums me up pretty well. I often feel emotionally starved, a bottomless pit that is impossible to fill, like there is a hole in my bucket of love, affection, validation, "Ok-ness." I know that it isn't fair to the people around me, especially my...

    I Need To Be Needy

    I need hugs and kisses and constant reassurance that I am loved and that I AM WORTHY OF LOVE. bUT NEEDING AFFECTION ACCORDING TO THE SHRINKS IS NOT A NEGATIVE BUT A POSITIVE REACTION TO THE GENERAL LACK OF CLOSENESS IN TODAYS SOCIETY.

    What Is Wrong With Me?

    I don't know exactly where to start as this has been a lifelong struggle. From the time I was little, I've always craved affection and someone who would wrap me in cotton wool. Neither one of my parents were involved in my life when I was growing up. My mother had problems of...
