    I miss being in love.

    I'm ready to make a serious commitment with any woman, but I definitely love the thrill and excitement of falling in love. Falling in love is the best feeling in the world. I may be happy outside but inside... I'm hurt real bad...

    This Is Core To My Behavior Around (RL) Women Over The Last Few Years

    This is a post that needs to get written.  I'm trying to get under my feelings and behavior to what's really going on with me.  It’s hard for me to know where to begin this story.  I am a kind-hearted, sensitive man who practically – though not...

    The hugs and kisses

    for no reason, and the sly touches that used to make me smile like a shy little kid. You say you love me with just a look.. the affection was intoxicating and when you touch me there. .. Oh, how I miss love.

    The lack of intimacy can be crippling sometimes.

    We all want and need a partner to make us feel beloved and valued.

    I only moved 150 miles away,

    but it's enough. I lost him awhile ago. I know I did and even though he says he loves me, it's not how it used to be. His heart is with someone else, I just can tell. He can deny it, but I see it. My heart has finally been broken enough times that I don't think it can be fixed...

    I was in this relationship

    for nearly 5 years of my life. And calling it simply a relationship undermines everything I felt and currently long now. I went to boot camp and she stayed with me for 2.5 years in a LDR with me. we never cheated. we never lied. we argued and fought but always made sure to fix...

    I miss being loved by someone in my real life.

    I want to give love to somebody and to get it back, want to talk and to discuss with someone, want to cuddle and to snuggle by someone. A lilfe without all these things is a very poor life.
