    It's Been One Of Those Taupe-colored Days

    My period ended two days ago, and I'm feeling it as my oxytocin levels drop into the toilet. I had a bad dream last night about my terminally ill ex-boyfriend dying in the hospital. I was there visiting him with another person who wasn't a real individual but just a dream...

    Feel Abnormal For This?

    I am 25 and constantly have what I can only describe as a craving to be held. Not in a sexual way necessarily but just in a comforting and nurturing way. There are many people I wish would hold me and sometimes I worry that it's abnormal to want this only because I haven't heard...

    In My Own Globe Of Pain.....

    When I see a man holding a woman it makes me angry, not at the couple, just frustrated. I don't care what people say, not having enough affection does something to you. I have a boyfriend (of 4 years) but alot of good that does me when he is 850 miles away. We are working on...

    I Just Want to Be Held

     It feels like I don't know anyone here anymore.  And it just figures that the first new person I meet doesn't want the same things that I do.  I just want someone to hold me and make me feel safe, not another predator who is just trying to go as far as he can get...

    Who Doesnt?

    I want to be held and to be told that everything will be ok. I know everything will be ok because I have God on my side, but just want to have someone to hold or to be held would be nice once in a while. :) Of course I have my child but you guys know what I mean. ;)

    I Hurt Inside, Hold Me.

    I hurt inside, but all i have is you. You won't hold me. Do i repel you? Am i disgusting?Why won't you hold me? You won't hold me, just because you can't. You are me. We stand together, hold each other up in the face of the world. We are one person. Me.

    Right now, at this moment,

    more than being kissed or anything, I just want to be held. I want someone to hold me tight right now--to just feel his warmth and love. To feel the rise and fall of his chest as he breaths, to feel the air as he inhales and exhales. I want to feel secure in his arms and know...
