    I Miss The Little Things

    I am recently single but have remained friends with my ex. We still hang out now and again but its not the same. As a friend I realize that things like holding her hand or touching the small of her back when standing beside each other would not be appropriate. My ex was the one...

    Wishing and hoping for Affection. I love to talk about sex but sex isn't the only thing on my mind. I just want Affection. I love attention and the feeling of being special to that certain someone.

    Can't Get Enough!

    I for one cannot get enough affection (or give it, either).  My boyfriend and I are constantly cuddling, kissing, holding hands, tickling each other, etc., and I absolutely love it.  Nothing says "I adore you" quite like a tender kiss on the forehead or a...

    In Love With Love

    I think I am in love with the concept of love. Every time there is someone in my life who is kind to me and gives me attention I just fall for them. Well I don't do that anymore becausebeing like that didn't help anyone out. But I use to just fall for anyone who showed some...

    Some Days It's All I Really Want

    Just someone to gently come up behind me and hold me.  To make me feel better about myself, and my life.   Someone that will hold my hand and want nothing in return but for me to hold theirs as well.   I want someone who will lay next to me just because...

    That Old Feel

    I wouldn't say I miss my ex. He turned out to be someone I thought he wasn't. He lied and hurt me terribly. I do miss one thing.. His affection. I miss getting my hair swept behind my ear, that look he gave me when he looked into my eyes, his hands on the small of my back pulling...

    Hugs And Kisses

    I love to give affection that's just because I am a passionate lover, very spontaneous. I am in a long term relationship and I love him even though he is not as affectionate, I do wish he would be more spontaneous when we are together, like slow kisses and cuddles not kisses that...

    It Makes Me Feel Like A Human

    Um.... I think most people get the majority of their physical contact --especially in early years-- from their home, and their families. My relatives have never been the physical type. No one touches, or hugs, or embraces, or anything of the sort beyond a brief handshake or...

    Well, Sometimes

    My friends and family think that I despise affection. I can't blame them - I shrink away from hugs, I scoot away when I have to be too close, and I don't say things like "I love you." But, contrary to popular belief, I love affection. I just happen to be picky about...

    I have been missing affection. I certainly miss passion, but I think I miss the loving gaze, the gentle touch, the random act of care. There was a time.... long past when it was there. When if felt nice to have feel arms around me and a nice kiss on the neck or a head gently...

    Mwah! :X

    I was at a bar I frequent

    when the barmaid's boyfriend came in with their 1 year old daughter, the latter of whom became an immediate celebrity at the bar. The staff and regular customers crowded around the daughter and showed her so much affection. After they left, I turned to the barmaid and said...

    One of the best feelings in the world is

    after a rough day, your significant other tells you to come over and lay down and put your head on their lap and they just pet your face and your head. Run their fingers through your hair. And you just close your eyes and fade away.
