    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...

    Cuddles And Kisses

    There is nothing better than the warm breathe from your partners lips on your neck as they swoop down into you. Many would expect a kiss to follow, the neck being such an erotic area, but what many want is for the chin to rest just past the nape, arms to wrap around, and bodies...

    I Love Affection

    There is nothing better than recieving a warm hug after a bad day, or a soft kiss from someone who cares about you.  These kind of expressions say more than a million words, filling the heart with strenght and happiness.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Missing

    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...

    And Giving It!!

    My cats are THE most affectionate little monsters in the world. I love them. They can tell when I'm sad and in need of some love so they give me extra fuss. Sometimes I think they look after me more than I look after them. They are such angels, I couldn;t live without them. I...

    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...

    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...

    I love giving as much

    as I do receiving! Affection is not a part of my life as it once was and I am not as happy a person because of it. I am hopeful that some day affection will be part of my life again.

    Some Days It's All I Really Want

    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...
