I Crave Human Touch

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 299 People

    I've hardly ever been touched by another human

    Sleepy-eyed Perspectives

    It's a tragedy to see how many forget the necessity of warm human-to-human communication, which includes touch. It's a foundational need; a need that is default to the "average person," thus not really thought of, but once missing, starts to slowly bring feelings of creeping...

    But

    At this point I'd settle for a cute poodle! OMG just to have someone hold me again would do wonders. I hate this alone stuff and there is a side that knows how the old manic me would fix it but that's the dark side and not exactly healthy. I've put some ppl out of my world for...

    I Crave It.

    I crave human touch. I love kissing, cuddling, just holding someone. Because of it I've had sex with more men then I'd like to admit. I was raised NEVER to have sex outside of marriage so that may be part of the reason I feel so ashamed. According to my mom because I have a...
