    But ONLY If It's Genuine.

    Don't waste My time with mind games. You'll ultimately only **** Me off. I want the real thing.

    Wishing

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.
