    I Just Want a Hug.

    Sometimes I just really want a hug from someone. Any of my friends... I just want to be hugged. They make me feel better when I'm upset. I don't get hugs that often from people other than my mum very often... and they're not really the same. She just usually hugs me to say...

    Please Hold Me

    I am so sad. And no one ever held me as a child. My parents were abusive. I crave being held. But I isolate from people. I am ugly, 60 years old, and feel very much alone. And can't stop crying.

    Need Some Quiet Please!

    Sometimes I'm just all talked out.  Physically and emotionally I'm drained.  The tears keep flowing and just won't stop.  My friends always want me to talk about it so I can get it out of my system.   That's all I've been doing.  Talking...

    "like I Am The Only One"................................

    I often feel like i'm the only one that understands me or cares about me. It's such an ugly feeling to feel like you are the only person you can rely on and it's funny as hell. When you are not even that dependable in the first place. I feel like shi* constantly. Like a burden...

    Being sad is one thing

    but having someone to hold you and make you feel better is all I want. I want the one person I can let go my emotions around and know that everything will be okay... Damn, I want a man lol 💑

    A Hug Is All It Takes.

    For me, hugs and cuddles are important. Whenever I feel sad or lonely or whatever, a hug can be all it takes to cheer me up. And though I like talking about problems I have or htings that annoy me or make me feel small, sometimes just a simple hug or someone to hold me can...

    However

    There isn't anyone to accomplish this with/for me.  I'm all alone and it won't change.  The cat will only tolerate cuddling for so long.

    I Know Lonliness

    My name is Meadow. I am a 51 year old, married multiple. Much of my time is spent alone while my husband works. The lonliness I feel is sometimes unbearable.  There are even times when I'm lonely with my husband right in the room. I live in a small city and only have a few...

    Is That So Hard?

    Is it so hard to just give me a hug when I'm sad? Is it necessary to get frustrated with me? Must you try to reason my sadness away, when a hug would send it on it's way so much quicker? Why are you, the only person around who I want to go to when I need a hug, so...

    Even If They Didn't Speak a Word

    Hugs help extremely.. So holding I bet would be so much greater. Just the feeling of their arms around me would lift my spirits. Suprisingly only my dad hugs me. Usually it'd be the mom right? But he does occasionally.. When I'm going to my mom's. They help a little, but they're...

    I think this might be off topic for this experience lol. People seem to like me at work. I can hide my feelings well there. I can go out to places by myself and some women can look at me and give me a small smile. It feels like they know I hurt just by looking at me. Sometimes I...

    I Don't Want My Husband to Hug Me

    Our relationship has changed. I feel like he is more like a father, than my spouse. I don't like him hugging me, touching me, anything!! I love for my children to hug me. I find their hugs, comforting.

    I need someone to hold me when I am upset, when I am sad, when all I want to do is cry. I need someone to hold me and make all the pain go away. I wish I had that. I miss it.

    Just Once~

    Sometimes I just need someone to hold me and tell me "Everything will be okay." I just need someone to just hug me instead of asking "What's wrong?" Like just cuddle me and let me cry into your shoulder. Don't say anything and just hold me tight. Kiss my forehead. Never let go...

    Never Thought I Did

    At least that's what I told myself for years and years. Made an art of not needing to be held. Which was good since I never got held. Very easy to deny yourself something you don't have. But then one day... tears were falling and I hurt, physically all over, and I was held...
