    I really wish he showed me more affection

    and not even just physically. Words can be affectionate too; but I guess I'm not worth that.

    My boyfriend says he loves me

    and cares about me but he never shows it and when he's around his friends he ignores me and it's really tearing me apart but I can't find it in me to tell him how I feel and it really sucks😞

    She knows how I look at her.

    She doesn't see me. She knows I care, want to protect her. She sees him. He only wants his woman, tired of the doll she'd brought him. Lied to, used, abused, hurt, abandoned. She still loves him. I can feel her pain, want to help. I can't help: I'm man. I'm lonely

    My Life Is Out Of Affection

    Recently my boyfriend

    and I moved in together. We started dating at the end of June, things were going fine for a while. Lately since we moved there has been less affection, I don't know why? It is driving me crazy... You would think that because we moved in together that we would be having sex every...

    Please Wake Up...

    He needs to wake up...he is so unaffectionate. I don't see how he lives his life without affection. He is like a robot, expressionless and unresponsive to the touch of another person. If medication is available for lack of affection and expression, he needs to buy it by the...

    I've been engaged to my fiancé

    for just over a year but I'm anxious I shouldn't marry him next July over lack of affection. He wasn't in the mood for sex last night (think it's been over 2 weeks since we last did anything- it's become a regular thing). Being rejected again was even more upsetting as it was...

    Even though I have a boyfriend,

    I feel completely alone and unloved. I feel like no one cares about me.

    ~affection ~

    I've been with my boyfriend for about a year and a half (he's 18 and I'm 19). Over the time I've been with him I learn more and more about myself everyday and one thing I've learned is that I love physical affection. I do not need gifts (even though I appreciate them) I also don...
