    Nothing like the warmth of a man.

    That electric feeling when he touches you. Knowing he needs and wants you just as much as you need him. You feel safe and happy. I need this.....

    I have been with my husband

    for 7 years and we have three kids. We barely see each other because I am in school and he works a lot. I am a very affectionate person and he isn't. We are still intimate...well kind of...there's no passion, no butterflies, and I am not sure what to do. I recently talked...

    I have left food behind.

    .... Now I'm just hungry for what food was taking the place of. I want to have a man that wants to be with me. Wants to dance in the kitchen.... Kiss my neck while I'm doing the dishes. He will tell me a song made him think of me. He will pour a glass of wine and want to sit with...

    Maybe I'm just having a pity party

    but slowly I'm learning that feelings are real and cannot just be swept under a rug. Maybe I just need to vent and afterwards I'll feel better so here goes. I'm usually a positive person and can always find the bright side of any situation but the past few days I guess this...

    You inhale and exhale I memorize every movement

    It's so crazy to share your whole existence

    I have been married for 12 years.

    My husband does not like to be touched other than kissing hugging and oral sex. No foreplay,no making out, no slight touches. I have never been so lonely in my life. I have expressed my feelings. He does not show emotion EVER! It's driving me crazy. I feel like I live with my...

    To ME, A woman is NEVER sexier

    Where did the man I married go?

    We fight almost constantly. He says he has no need for affection or attention from me and I'm being needy because my needs for those thing are still there. He had become so cold and distant.

    I was in the same situation.

    Married for too many years without sex and intimacy. One day I just decided that life was too short and I deserved to be happy. It was difficult and heartwretching---but the best decision I ever made. If you're unhappy and your partner is not willing to work with you to find...

    Every morning I get up

    and get dressed. Nary a word is exchanged between us. I leave work with "have a good day" to you, you say the say the same as I move past you and head for the door. No kiss good bye or I love you. I come home and get bombarded with how bad your day was at home. No question...

    Happy Anniversary. Not!

    Twenty two years married, twenty six together. We had a nice dinner, flirted, talked, laughed. You could cut the sexual tension with a knife it was so thick. Then she said, in a very seductive voice, " take me home and ravish me". Those were her words, not mine. I couldn't...

    Recently, we agreed to divorce

    Today has not been a good day,

    feelings of loneliness and sadness are knocking at the door. I try desperately to keep them at bay - but the reality of how lonely and alone I am, is forever waiting just in the shadows. I am surrounded by people - loved ones, friends and you - my husband....And yet, I feel so...
