    I Hate You, Don't Leave Me

    Often I think people ignore the fact that I need love and attention because I have borderline personality disorder. But even though I don't process emotions and feelings like everyone else, I still need to be considered and treated like a human...

    It has been my solemn prayer,

    to one day meet a woman and to fall in love, get married, and start a life together. I would like a woman who will stimulate my intellect and intrigue my heart. I would like a woman who’s down to earth and knows who she is and does not have to put on airs to be something she...

    I Am Sooo Lost

    I've had an affair with married man last summer. It was everything for me - love, fun, joy, sadness, happiness, empty promises, lies, sleepless nights, tears, broken heart. Literally, I went through all these feelings after 14 faithful years of my only marriage. I was so in love...

    Dying From Lack of Attention

     I feel myself just blending into the wall, the sheets, the sofa as if I don't exist anymore.  My wife, through no fault of her own, grew up in a cold family and although we had hot sex every night until we got married, it stopped then and I found out that although I'n...

    Always........

    It seems to be one of my biggest weaknesses. I am always looking for love, acceptance & affection. When I was younger I would seek out attention, but I find I don't do that as much anymore. I still seek the love though. I believe looking back at my relationship with...

    I'll Never Let Myself Have It

    I need love and affection, but I won't let anyone love me. When it seems like he will, I chase him away. I've done it over and over again. I don't know the way out.

    Hello

    I have needs. I want to be close to someone again. I am always needing love. I dated a lot but always dated the wrong guys. I wish I would have found out sooner. I would have done better. So I am pretty selective. You have to be a Christian and you have to be my age pretty much...

    Call Me a *****.

    I need someone's love and affection, but how to keep it with the dreaded cloud of lies always lying in wait. I am with someone who doesn't realize what I need and crave. No attention, especially in public, it's not proper. It embaresses him. Why should he be embaressed? But I can...

    It's Difficult

    I want people to like me. On the other hand, I'm paralyzed by the fear that if they get to know me, they won't like me. I'm afraid I'll say something to offend them, or that they'll figure out that I'm gay and stop associating with me. The fear has been thus far overpowering...

    from guys. Especially guys that want to skype or send pics. Silly boys. What if I liked girls? Guess it's my fault for choosing the picture I chose..... Maybe I crave attention.....

    Very Much Lacking.
