I Miss Being Loved

    ...and everything that entails.

    I'm big on the holding, kissing, hugging, nights out together, nights in together. Even the stress and petty arguments...and the fights. It's been over a year since my last serious relationship-one of which, I felt the most loved and adored ever. And after the taste I just had...

    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...

    Hurts Until Its Scars

    I miss that feeling of being loved, someone's special someone knowing I can come home to them at the end of the day and confide in them. The feelings and hurt fade with time but that doesn't mean I still don't long for that sweet surrender again. The other half of me the one who...

    It's always nice to be truly liked.

    ... Not seen as a trophy or a luggage, just liked for exactly who you are...most people just want something these days.....but I know love can't be that far away

    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.

    Why do you fall in love?

    And can never move on? Yes, I love him... But he is so far away, and no matter how hard we try, the distance keeps us so far apart. He is the sweetest guy there is, straight forward, but decent. I just don't hear from ds "I love you" anymore? We are just friends, due to the...
