    Can Lonely Be A Good Thing?

    After finally putting an official end to an on/off disaster of a relationship, the loneliness is getting more intense. I'm in a place now where I have decided to stay single for a while so that I can focus on me.. As cliche as it sounds. At 28, I'm realizing I haven't had a truly...

    This is a little more of a current issue then

    an experience. Anyways, single guy here which is fine at most times. The other time I just get really sunk in feelings. I'm not a huge sexual person so I feel like that's not the problem. I miss the closeness of deep and intimate eye contact and touch. This is really weighing...

    My marriage lacks affection,

    closeness and intimacy. We don't kiss, hug or hold hands....no date nights....the main priority is to raise our kids...we talk a lot, however, when it comes to intimacy, it is dismal...I have expressed my desires to my husband for more affection and have even tried to show him...

    for many years I have had the sense

    that intimacy is sacred and sometimes the closeness I feel with people I have just met has been ecstatic. I love meeting new, open-minded people. strange intimacy is the best. odd people.

    Sure I want that. Affection,

    closeness, intimacy... with someone other than myself. Or... my dog. I KNOW my dog loves me. She gives me all the affection, closeness and intimacy to be had from a dog. I got that. What I want is affection, closeness and intimacy with another human being... And, yes... I...

    Today i've decided to love myself more.

    My boyfriend has been taking me for granted. He always finds time for other things he may think are more important than me. I vow to have more self-respect and not make those who treat me as an option my priority.

    Im curious if anyone has ever been this way

    I am 41 years old and married.

    I have a 21 year old man that is trying hard to persuade me to be with him. I have told him in many kind ways that we cannot be together, but he continues in his advances. There is a part of me that wonders if I should give in to him.

    being affectionate to and with him, and most of all intimate with him. I am in love so much with my husband of ten years. He is so much in love with me as well. We just had a baby three months ago. We love our special time in bed together when we undress each other, cuddle...

    People are always asking what women really

    Proximity...

    The only thing I need is closeness. It’s extremely simple. I don’t need to be the only woman in your heart, mind or body, but for what we are, I need it to be as close as it may be. Closeness requires honesty, respect, devotion, openness, intimacy. I do not need to own...

    "Woman was made from the rib of a man.

    Not from his head to top him, nor his foot to be stepped on by him, but from his side to be equal to him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him."

    Sometimes you fall in love with the person you

    feel is perfect for you but like they say the honeymoon stage ends really quick. Just to wake up and feel loved shouldn't be a task. A man that marries you should want to you to stay happy always. I want love and affection back in my life
