    So I met this guy on EP awhile ago.

    He was a bit of an insomniac like me. He was married, loved music, and was really lonely. We kept each other company and talked about crazy things like running away and starting a band. I didn't know him very long, but when he left...I actually cried a little. I still miss him...

    I really want a girlfriend,

    and I keep getting rejected. It's impossible to live without a girlfriend, and I've became suicidal about being single. I've been reject too many times to remember. I hate living without a girlfriend, and I cry in pain about being single.

    I need a close intimate connection to somebody,

    a best friend, a lover, a significant other, or even just a great roommate. I have been missing a really close bond to someone special for too long.

    Emotional intimacy is very important to me.

    It can be hard and even mentally exhausting for me to have a sexual relationship without it.

    Being an introvert and highly insecure about

    myself based on my past (my father, male acquaintances, and almost every man in my life not wanting much to do with me), I never thought I'd find anyone to love me. Even if they did, by some miracle, find me the least bit attractive, my insecurities would drive them away for...

    My friend killed herself on Christmas Eve.

    I'm straight, but at times I felt like I was in love with her. Maybe it was because she a lesbian and she was in love with me, but she made me feel normal - Happy, loved, desired, cherished. Things I've never felt from anyone. At times I wanted her to find the perfect girl, but...

    Always Feel Loved (Poem)

    When life’s burdens get out of hand; Always feel loved. If things don’t happen exactly as planned; Always feel loved. When the forest you’re in turns dark and black; Always feel loved. I’ll be there to find you and lead you back; Always feel loved. You’ll always s have...

    Deeper Connection...

    Emotional Intimacy

    I am married but there is nothin there.

    I do what he tells me to do. I live the way he wants me to live. I want someone who will actually talk to me and want to know me. I want to know them. I want to listen and here them out. I am here with 3 kids, a husband, a dog, a guinea pig, and a rabbit and I am lonely.

    There's a melancholic undertone to your

    demeanor. I recognize it as if I were looking into a mirror. Starved of affection we export happiness in our actions, although our souls have become fragile over the years. Hold me right now and I will hold you.

    Married Without Intimacy Is Worse Than Being Single

    I'll say it right up front. I'm codependent.  I'm a romantic. I feel the best way to enjoy something is to share it with someone else.  Emotional intimacy is like oxygen for me. Some people might see this as a personality flaw or weakness. (especially in a guy) I don't. I know...

    I miss those Saturdays in spring

    when I woke up in the arms of my ex girlfriend, and the first thing I saw was her kind smile. And then we stayed in bed for hours cuddling and kissing each other. Now those days are gone and I feel so empty... abandoned and forgotten. God I miss her.

    Emotions are so overrated by underestimations.

    People are afraid to create bonds because we fear what is to happen. We shouldn't let our fears dictate our actions. For once, I wish someone would approach me with the intentions of staying for more than a month. Lay with me, let us speak like young children. Ramble on to me...

    It would be nice to have this in my life.

    I don't really warm up around people because it's hard to trust them. For example my first love cheated on me. He stopped telling me he loved me and then I realized his Facebook profile was full of relationship statuses with at least 3 other girls.
