    I Miss It!

    I miss the passion, the warmth, the romance. I miss feeling wanted, needed, special. I miss the flowers, the love notes, the little kisses out of nowhere. But most of all I miss feeling loved!

    Longing To Be Touched.

    I wonder how many people are going to click thinking Im going to talk about sex. Guess what. Not me. I am a VERY VERY VERY cuddly person. When I'm in relationships, physical contact and intimacy is super important to me, although I think it's just my ADHD Hugging, cuddling, face...

    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...

    The Idea Of It

    I love the idea of having that perfect person who loves you back equally as much. I believe in love and love at first sight but where I live I don't think many people would agree which is honestly a shame.
