    Why Not?

    Why can't I just hug people for no reason? It makes me feel better. I'm not creepy or anything.

    Do Not Settle For Less??

    I know there's something wrong... How I wish....if he is not really meant for me....I can free my heart easily.. I felt like it's better to be single than to have a relationship wherein you are not so sure.. If I'm no longer happy.... If something is bothering me...should I...

    Physical Contact

    I never understood why some people were so comfortable with hugging as a greeting. I had always felt somewhat awkward doing that with someone who wasn't my mother or close relative. I experienced one from a guy a couple weeks ago and I actually like it. I don't know why I had...

    I Had Somebody To Hug

    I had somebody who I loved to hug. She made me feel so many things when she squeezed me. Sadly she learned that I liked her more than she wanted so I lost my hugger and have yet to feel the same way with other hugs that her hugs made me feel.

    Do You Need A Hug?

    You know how in TV programs people say, " do you need a hug" ? I wish people would say that to me in real life . Wouldn't it be great to get a hug from someone who loves you every time you are feeling down or sad?

    Hugs Cure All

    I feel so lonely here in my dorm right now, but I don't know anyone here that would give me a hug and my family and friends are hours away. And the verbal hug from my mom over the phone didn't really help.

    I Feel So Uneasy And Scared...

    About my life and in myself. I wish someone would just cuddle me and tell me that everything is going to be ok. Sometimes that is the only thing that helps ease some of the pain and uncertainity.

    I Need To Feel Human Touch

    My wife and I used to sleep nude. I used to love to have her lay on top of me and I'd hug her so tight she had to tell me to let go so she could breathe. It was a wonderful feeling, not even sexual, just a warm body touching mine was intoxicating. Then one day she decided she...
