    My Husband's No Longer My Best Friend And Partner.

    I've been married to the same guy for 15 years (1/3 of my life), have two kids w/ him, and been very happy. He really seemed to be my soulmate. I'm not a jealous person and I've never been. He's been one to seek vicarious fantasies w/ naked photos of women on the internet during...

    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.

    I've come to realize

    that thanks to my minir paranoia since getting cheated on I've become emotionally needy. Like, if I get into a relationship the girl has to be there for me when I'm breaking down. It's not one sided, I'd be there for her as much as I can be, but I can't handle being in a one...

    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'm Unhappy

    Especially Since My Last Breakup

    * I find I am probably at my most needy. I have been without love or companionship for close to 3 yrs. My last relationship wasn't the best in the world, but it was the longest I had ever been with one person & I believe we both did our best. He's back home with his family...

    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...

    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...

    After I left my husband

    because of his cheating ways I needed to feel "loved" again. I went to an old flame that made me feel wanted, attractive, and desired. All feelings of lust. I was not looking for my next husband. I was looking for passion. Lifelines. I wanted to fill the void my husband left in...

    I Feel Emotionally Dependant On Others

    I just realized last night that I seem to put too much of my emotions on friends I find on the Internet and then kind of control them by getting upset if they want to drift away. One friend told me their life is getting busy but he doesn't want to abandon me because he thinks I...

    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...

    "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.
