    I'm currently feeling deeply depressed about my

    marriage. My husband and I have nothing in common besides our children. He has no idea how disconnected I've become. I feel very alone.

    This is more than just sex,

    this is something deeper. To me making love and having sex is different and if I am to have a lover then I need to know this person truly loves me and we should be best friends. This has yet to happen to me, but I have faith that I will finally be with that person who I can...

    If we can't be idiots together,

    and do normal friend things, for example: Sleep overs where we watch movies, make forts, eat junk food, etc etc. Our relationship isn't going to be fun. I want someone I can run around in pajamas with. Someone I can go camping with. Where sex isn't a major thing. Yes, okay. I...

    Have you ever had that feeling in your heart

    that consumes you? The feeling that drives you to go on and complete it. For me that feeling is love. I'm driven to love. To satisfy and to spoil. I'm driven by compassion and care. It's in my blood . I'm also driven to protect and serve. Serve who you may ask? A lover. Someone...

    I feel so lonely and sad these days.

    I want a man who will be my shoulder to cry on, who loves travelling, who will share my interests with me, with whom I can always talk to, who will be always by my side and who will love me. I want a decent man who will love me and support me. He should be my savior when I fall...

    I know that I am fortunate enough to have this

    right now in my life. A manager that I used to work with, Maggie, told little Tina and me that her husband is her best friend, and that it's hard to trust others because you aren't around them a lot. Its obvious duh, but your loved one is someone that you trust, that you put...

    We all have heard many times

    that there's someone for everyone. The optimistic side of me believes this. The pessimist that has taken residence in my brain....not so much. If I wasn't such a complex individual I suppose the saying would hold true. But the fact remains I am what I am. To be honest I'm good...

    I want to kiss and be kissed - long,

    sweet, hungry kisses. I want your arms around me, pressing me close. I want to feel your hands and mouth caressing the contours of my body. And I also want to be able to banter with you, match wits, talk about ideas. Am I just being greedy, or expecting too much?

    isnt that what the basis of any kind of

    relationship is?- friendship?! well, at least to me it is. before being a bf/ Gf it's important to first be good friends. one looks for companionship and friendship in a relationship, the love grows stronger..and that's what I need a best friend for a lover!

    I want to engage on all levels.

    I want to engage you and I deserve for you to engage me. I want to be able to share everything and anything with you, if I choose. I may not but the option is there. I want our souls to be engaged. I want our emotional and our physical connections to "speak volumes."

    Someone I can tell my deepest darkest secrets to. Someone to make me smile and laugh each and everyday. Someone that can make me smile just by hearing their name. Someone I can hug and he will never let go, and fall asleep in his arms. Pillow fights is a must. Someone to hold my...

    I am lucky enough to have found true love with

    my best friend and the below is exactly how it happened it was never meant to it just did. There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.

    when I'm in love, I love that person with all my heart and everyone I've been with hasn't be able to handle it.. Pushes them away they can't accept my love i do come across quite "needy", but that's because I crave the same amount of love I'm giving, back!
