    All I Need Is Someone

    I have this fantasy  of  just being to hug someone I love and lye with them forever. It's because I don't have any special people in my life. My family doesn't really care for me and I never had a boyfriend. I know I'm pathetic...

    Yes...

    I've been feeling so lonely lately. And I really have no desire to hug my family, other than my two brothers. Everyone else has been frustrating me almost to the point of tears; I don't want to be anywhere near them. But really. I need a hug so desperately. Just to know I'm not...

    I am going through some major things

    and find myself begging for hugs which appear to be very difficult to get. It is just a nice tight long hug but I am finding that it is just too much to ask. It makes me wonder if hugs will become something you have to pay for. If that happens then what is the reason to continue...

    No Touchy

    For the first six years of my life I was always a touchy child. But my mom was always overly affectionate. And I never really wanted her to touch me, because she would always squeeze me too tight. OR not let go. Or tell me if I didnt hug her she would be very sad and leave me...

    I Just Want A Simple Hug....... A Long Hug...

    I just need a hug... I don't get very frequent hugs and when I do, they are short and half assed... I have not ever had a hug that basically tells me: "your lying, i KNOW something is wrong now."

    Hug Please

    I have always been a hugable person. I dont care if i seen you a couple of hours ago. I gotta give you another. Its the affection and knowing that someone cares and a message to say i love you. If i am feeling bad or upset, or down for any reason that hug can be so comforting. I...

    Coping Alone

    I am dealing with the revealation of my husband's affair. He "confessed" while under anesthesia. While it was quite a few years ago, it explains much of the struggle we have had. It makes two thirds of our married life seem a lie. I have no one to talk to other than my...

    Is It My Turn Yet??

    I need a real hug. A good warm one that will make me not fear fire anymore. One that will be sweet kisses thru my memory of that person when he/she is not around me.

    I Desperately Want A Hug.

    Well, I've never really had a long hug and I'm really craving one. I want someone there with me(like a boyfriend)to tell me everything is going to be okay. I want to hug someone for hours and sleep and cuddle my trouble thoughts away. I need someone to depend on, someone to spoil...

    Besides My Mother

    At this point, my mother is pretty much the only person who hugs me (well her and most of the adults in my family), but I still feel empty. I have trouble finding others who will, especially males. I feel like I have a reputation to protect around them and hugging is out of the...

    I Just Want A Real Hug.

    all I get is hugs from my family, and they kinda suck. I want a hug from a friend, girlfriend, or boyfriend, I just want a shoulder to cry on...someone to dry my tears, and tell me that it'll be alright, but hey, that's probably never going to happen, nobody I know really cares...

    I always like to hug people.

    Having a long hug is comforting to the inner soul, a break from the outside world. but sadly, I never had a long sincere hug before,most of them are just short hugs. Having long hugs can be the most amazing feeling ever, the way your arms surround another person and they...
