    Feel Defective For It......

    I think I am just very lonely. You know what makes me angry? When people say to be happy alone. I agree in some parts you should make yourself happy and rely only on yourself but is that really do-able? humans are meant to want to connect and sometimes it is like I am being made...

    Online "Friends"

    I have no one to talk to but the people online. So I go on this website called teenspot and add a gazillion of guys so they can all compliment me and shower me with attention. It sounds conceited, but in my family all I get is criticism so I crave this all the time. =/

    Will I Be Alone Forever?

    I have distanced myself from other people my entire life. I was painfully shy and very, very quiet. I didn't even talk to my own family. It seems like I was born with low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy and inferiority. I fall for guys who I know will hurt me, and end up...

    Love, Light, Affection

    Well, the way I was raised is to be nice and kind to everyone no matter what. It seems as if that has sort of backfired. At the moment, I do everything anyone asks me to do. It is kinda bad. All I want is just someone to talk to or do something for me but the only time someone...

    Sad, Crave Affection

    My husband doesn't show me affection. He says he doesn't feel like having sex. We have only been married two years... I just feel sad and lonely. I don't know what to do. I've talked to him about it but it hasn't helped. He says he feels like no matter what he does I'm going to...

    Craved Maternal Love And Affection

    All I Ask For

    All I ask for is a little affection, someone holding me close, telling me everything will be alright, making me feel really special. That's everything I want and I just feel lonely, without anyone here beside me.

    Lonely Stay At Home Mom

    I know my husband loves me. I just think he doesn't know how to show it. I grew up with an unaffectionate mother and always have been an affectionate and very demonstrative person. But my husband and I seem to be mismatched. I would wager that 80% of the time he only touches me...

    It's been so long since I've been in a man's arms and cuddled, and made out and all the rest. Just to hold hands is a thrill! I hope to receive this someday yet..

    Hugs!!!

    this is probably going to sound very, very odd but I NEED hugs. Sometimes when I am around people I get this funny empty feeling in my chest and the only way to make it stop is if I hug someone. Also, you can tell a lot from peoples hugs :) If I don't hug people to get rid of the...

    Lonely

    I'm not really sure how to write this, because it is quite upsetting for me to even think about. All I want in life is to hold a girl/woman in my arms and cuddle her and kiss her and spend time with her. It probably sounds stupid, but it is what I want. I'd settle for a hug, but...

    To Be Held Is To Live

    Affection is something I've hardly experienced as all of those that have given it to me were fake and it was all a ploy to sleep with me but it was wonderful to have someone to kiss you and rub your back and hold you to keep you cuddled and safe. Now that I look back at that...

    Lonely Life.

    I seem to always feel so lonely nowadays.. I never used to feel like this. I just feel so depressed all the time I just wish I had someone to hug me and hold my hand to make me better. I wish I had someone.. anyone. I just don't want to feel so alone anymore.
