    After Months Of Fighting I Finally Got Occasional Cuddles...

    Cuddling is a weekend only activity unless you want to count (and he does) sleeping with a foot touching me. It took me months of conversations (that he always turned into fights) to get him to cuddle with me, but its weekends only. I told him if he has enough time to sit around...

    3 years of sleeping next to the same guy every

    night. His open mouth snoring occasionally, his heavy arm and/or leg plastering me to the bed making me hot and uncomfortable, he moves and I wake up and move....accidentally elbowing me or pulling my hair...stealing all the blankets or using half my pillow. I'd trade this...

    I really want to hug my friend

    so tight, and want him to hug me too... Ah, that would be the best feeling in the world, to be hugged by the loved one, but I am afraid to do the first move and be rejected if I do... I pretend to be a confident guy but in reality I am super lonely

    When you're growing up no one ever tells you how much your heart will be broken, how to deal with that, and most of all... how to grow from it. The first Love of my life was my first best friend. So wonderful and caring. I don't remember what year in High School we started dating...

    These last few days I've been pretty depressed.

    I truly believe that love and being held helps soften the blow. I know how I feel when I'm held. It's euphoric. Just sensing love, feeling it radiate towards you, calms even the most negative of energies. My life is this chaotic balancing act of negative energies and finding...

    Why is it, that the people we love fall for the wrong people? We all deserve better. It seems as if we accept the love we dont deserve. But why do we do this? This makes me think on how are we going to find a person who loves us unconditionally.... JUST a thought
