    I miss my boyfriend so much.

    Right now he's traveling around the world and I don't really know when I'll see him again. It sucks that he's always busy meeting new people and doing cool stuff but i always choose to understand. I just wish he'd set some time for me everyday just to talk or message each other...

    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.

    So many times I have found myself asking:

    "What's wrong with me?" and "Am I really asking for so much?" I had different relationships in my life and even though I wasn't alone, I was still somehow feeling very lonely. I wanted that intimate relationship so much, that feeling of being understood, of being truly seen...

    I don't get touched enough.

    It doesn't even have to be sexual (but that is always nice!) I just want to be caressed and cherished and have someone run their hands through my hair and hold me.

    We Do It To Ourselves. Now, If We Only Coud Figure Out Why And How!

    I'm an old, long married guy, but from what some of my (platonic...I've never cheated) female friends have shared with me, I suspect what I am about to say about people and relationships holds true for at least as many women as men. 1. You know that if all you wanted was sex, you...

    I'm Starved For This

    I thought once you get married and you're happy that you wouldn't feel lonely or just simply having this emptiness inside. My wife and I don't have sex, she doesn't even pay attention to me when I get home from work. So I'm gone 12 hours a day while she's at home doing nothing. I...

    Affection ... Mmmm, Yes Please!

    I love this quote by Audrey Hepburn! I think human beings have an intense need for affection. Affection creates intimacy and closeness. Affection can be emotional or physical.  Sometimes just a look or a touch are enough to incite a passionate response.  A word, enough to...

    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 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...

    Not Just A Body Beside Me

    We look into each other's eyes before we even speak. We must communicate and not just talk. I must feel our connection. I must know that it is going to be more than physical. When we embrace, when we lay together, when we make love, I must know that you feel me, desire me. I must...

    We used to talk all the time about anything. We used to take walks, play cards or board games & now if i ask to do something with him, he makes up an excuse & usually does something with one of the kids or goes on his computer. There is a huge lack of intimacy for almost a year...

    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.

    But I'm scared when the opportunity arises.

    Lost 2 loves because I was freaked out. One said he loved me straight out with no warning and we hadn't ever dated. I just clammed up. Said nothing. I think if a man got to know me and eased in, I might be okay. But I'm not getting any younger!
