    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...

    Forgive me love, but I'm too tired.

    I'm bored to say the least, and I lack desire.

    Sex isn't doing it for me.

    Medicines aren't helpful either. I don't know what's so bad, maybe I am damaged for life.

    I'm with someone who I care about more

    than anything. He's seemingly perfect and everything I should want. He would give me the world if I asked but I feel as if there is something missing.. Like I'm always craving the emotional attention that I feel I don't get. I feel like in almost every way he's the one but when...

    Deeper Connection...

    Intimacy is like a craving when you have walls so high and so strong they cannot be broken. It is like someone has put the one thing you want behind impenetrable glass and no matter how hard you try, it stays forever out of your reach. A lot of people think that sex is the most...

    As much as I know I am strong

    and I can stand on my own. I still feel an intense desire to be with someone, the problem is no one wants me. I can honestly say that any man I have ever been close to and wanted to be more intimate with has pushed me to the side for someone else or to just be friends with me...

    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.

    I need someone to talk to,

    someone to talk to me. To listen to, for me to listen to. I want to find someone who cares about me.... as much as they care about themselves. A connection, a soul mate. I'm tired of being alone. I wish someone would understand me.

    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.

    If I come across you on the endless beach

    and pick you up... Holding an empty shell to my ear and pretending to hear the words I crave won't work. If you are an empty shell, I will appreciate you for a time... But ultimately place you back in the sand.

    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...

    I love my husband. For seven years we've been

    together and married for two. I knew when I married him that he was mostly self-serving but it was okay (I thought at the time) because I'm an introvert who doesn't need validation or acknowledgement from others to ensure I am who I am. I don't need external mirrors in the...

    I'm not good at showing most emotions.

    I never have been. I have a family where I logically know there's love, and love is shown in its own way...but there's no emotional intimacy. I've never been close with anyone in that way. I think I could do it, because I crave it so much, but no one has ever gotten that close...

    The Forgotten Girl

    I have spent a lifetime pushing away those

    who wanted to love me. Only in the last few months have I began to feel a strong desire to to love someone and be loved back. Where to start? I am going to find what I have been missing and I will no longer be a slave to my past.

    My boyfriend breaks my heart every day.

    I just want someone to hold.

    A guy who can fulfill my emotional needs and be there for me. So many times we think of intimacy as sex but it's not it's knowing and connecting with the person on an emotional level deeper than anything else. I want to be known intimately by a man who will love me for me, and I...

    Emotional Intimacy

    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.

    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...
