    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It Makes Me Feel Like A Human

    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.

    Hugs And Kisses
