    Emotionally Clingy

    I'm emotionally clingy. I need to feel his touch. The feel of his hand on my shoulder, on my arm, and the side of my neck, and my cheek, the small of my back, and on my ***. I need to feel his arms around me holding me tight, as though he can keep all the bad things of the world...

    Only By People I Love Very Much

    I usually don't like (at all) to be touched. But when I come to be close to someone, I need the touch.

    By One Man

    I loved the way we used to be shy around each other, I still have a crush on him nearly 3 years later. And despite everything I would so love to be in his arms right now. He used to have this way of gently of lightly touching my neck. He would touch my face softly then let his...

    I Ache So Badly To Be Touched...

    Sometimes I think I am going to cry.  I ceretainly know I am slowly going insane.  I loved having a girlfriend when I was 14.  She had big boobs, which she let me see often, and she hung onto me like I was her favorite stuffed toy.  All I cared about was...

    It could be in the most innocent of ways

    or not I just need contact with another human being who won't judge me because of my scars.

    If Only For A Few Minutes

    I Don't Like It But I Want It

    I'm just going to explain myself bluntly because I seem to have a way of rambling. I don't hug people. I don't like having people put their arm around me. All I'm fine with is a handshake. I don't like getting 'touched' (so to speak), but I want to find that someone special that...

    I know what I need, I just don't know

    where to get it. Sensuality relaxes me, a touch, a kiss, a tickle. A smile. Maybe some else needs the same thing??

    I Hate This

    I don't know why I need it so much. It's pretty bad. If I don't get hugged for a long time (sometimes I go months without getting a single hug) or touched in any affectionate way, I start getting all emo and depressed and I stay that way until somebody finally decides to give me...

    32 and Haven't Been Touched

    I feel a need to be touched, because, it's been so long since I have been. I've never held hands with a woman. Never held someone in an intimate way. Haven't even had my first kiss. The last hug I had was from my grandmother, 12 years ago. There isn't anyone to hug anymore...

    Restrictions Apply!

    To make a long story short, it's been to long since I've been properly "touched" - if you know what I mean. However, I won't let just about anybody touch me. I'll only allow those who I know and love to touch me. ;)

    Sometimes

    There are times when I really ache to be touched. A warm caress, a gentle stroke of my cheek, soft lips pressing mine or a strong embrace. There is so much emotion that can be conveyed through a simple touch. Being held is being wanted and being wanted is a comforting thing.

    Comfort

    Its interesting how we can adapt to the person we are with. while being married i never gave it much thought as to the need to be held or touched and now that i am rediscovering myself i am finding the act of a simple hug or touch of the elbow to be quite comforting.

    Loneliness

    I am craving physical contact, any kind of intimacy; my hand held, a kiss, someone to hold me to tell me everything will be okay.  I've had my heart broken and re-broken so many times in the past few months, I'm afraid I'll be alone forever.  My desperation to be...

    I Went So Long Without the Touch of a Lover

    Now it seems that I cannot contain myself, he must be getting sick of me, and he probably doesn't realize how much I communicate through touch and passion.  I hate feeling like he will eventually tell me "enough already", but I know it could become a reality. ...
