    I had a date today, and the worst thing just

    happened to me to day, I got stood up and left out at the beach alone with all the things that I made for me and this guy who is now just a memory, why do I even bother dating people who just don't care about me.

    I just want to say that having an imaginary

    friend who hugs me and tells me the things I need to hear doesn't help me anymore.

    Forget the word mental, I'm sick and there's nothing anybody can do about it.

    Looking for a free good quality hug right now.

    And by "good quality" I mean I want to feel like I'm hugging an actual human being, not a pillow.

    Everything is just kind of suck-y right now

    and I want a little reassurance. I want someone to squeeze me tight and tell me that everything's going to be alright.

    I don't really expect anyone to read this

    or care. I just feel like I'm falling a part. I'm worn out from crying and all the sadness overwhelming me. I wish I had a friend and could feel okay for even a little bit.

    and receive them. To me a hug is the ultimate sign of many things, they say I love you, I need you, I am here for you, I will protect you, I appreciate you, I except you for who and what you are. I like hugs that feel soft and warm, that make fell wrapped in the huggers arms...

    Life can be really tiring

    and discouraging. Plus hugs are magical things. Anybody ever realized that they lost a huge part of themselves and it's scary how much you've changed?

    I want a hug from someone

    who actually cares, not as a platitude, not as an empty gesture, not just because they feel they have to. I want to be held tightly, to be engulfed by their kindness, to be able to cry on their shoulder if I feel I need to. I just want that so badly right now.
