    Just Once.

    Just once I would like someone to look at me with lust in their eyes. Like they want me and nothing more. Nothing else exists in the universe except their need to have me. It doesn't even have to be that. I'd settle for someone to just want to hold me. Anyone. Anything. I want...

    Them it hit me like a bolt of lightning: "I live with me and my sons mom and her daughters best friend". If that makes sense. Makes perfect sense to me.

    I believe the feeling of being wanted is one of our basic needs in life. It's right up there with food and shelter as a basic requirement. It gives us a sense of value.

    I very much want to be wanted.

    .. It's been so long I've felt unwanted and it is one of the worst feelings. I mean wanted for My mind, my heart, my feelings, my SOUL*, and after all that my body. But my body is not what I want to be wanted for, at least not at first.
