I Want to Be Loved

    I saw something interesting tonight.

    We let my brothers cat outside about 2 weeks ago. When I came home tonight he ran up to me and purred louder than I ever heard, he kept reaching to rub my hand and leg. He lost so much weight, and he was filthy. I brought him some food, he nibbled on it and ran back to me. I...

    I know that sounds juvenile,

    but I really want to be special to someone. The person they think of everyday. The person they cry to. And I want to love someone. Emotional intimacy is so rare and precious, that I crave it the most. I hope I find someone someday that feels the same way too

    Hope That One Day...

    Many times, I have been knocked down by love. Many times, I've been used and played by a woman who I really loved. I'm not afraid to love, because I can love with my whole heart, but I'm afraid of not being loved back. I'm not brave enough to love, but I'm brave enough to hope...

    I have had only two real boyfriends in my life.

    Its like I'm not worthy of a good boyfriend or something. Or like I don't deserve real love. The first was controling and the second was an *******. Even though I liked both of them I never felt a real connection. I just want someone on the same level as me who I can connect...

    Love

    I heard a saying: "Find someone who has had a difficult life because they are the ones who know how to love." I think this is true. I would love to be loved by someone who has had a difficult life. I know I've had one too. We could heal together.

    I want to be loved...

    .that unconditional, breathtaking, deep, soul mate kind of love. A connection that is not only physical, but emotional, and even almost a spiritual level. I also want to have that kind of love for someone, something deeper than an infatuation or lust, a true love that runs deep...

    Am I Not Good Enough?

    A lot of times I question myself: what's wrong with me? What's not to love in me? What's so complicated about me? What's lacking in me? I torture myself into thinking these kinds of questions because people keep saying, "you're beautiful or you're pretty or you're kind"...

    I've gotten so far in my life and accomplished so much, but I have yet to be in love or to be loved. I've been in relationships, none of which where good for me and I knowingly entered into them thinking because they were not what I wanted I could get what I needed from them. I...

    I want to be loved, held,

    kissed (passionately), I want to be made to feel special and I want to be cherished. I don't want to be treated like some broken toy or yesterdays trash. I want to genuinely be loved, not something fleeting but something that will last. That is my biggest hearts desire.

    He makes me feel like I'm not worthy of being

    loved. Like being me will get me nothing but loneliness I feel empty and so insecure. I just don't think I can be me any longer, because he shows me that I shouldn't. :'(.

    My intensions are uneasy

    I'm as desperate to give love as I am to feel it. I don't care what you look like or what you've done, I need you. I need you because I want to love you. I want to hold you against my heart and allow you to see into my soul, to give you every part of me that you desire. To brush...

    I have so much love to give,

    but no one wants to take it or share theirs with me. Why am I so hard to love? I take care of my man when I'm in a relationship and I can't even get an honest, "I love you."

    So in a recent post I pointed out a line

    I think everyone wants to be loved.

    It's hard though, when you grow up different. You grow up feeling unloved and worthless and you just want one person to show you your worth. To be there no matter what, to show you love....someone who'll never leave.

 and I see our first

    kiss
 when you spun me around,
 your hand landing softly on the small of my back
 the other holding my wrist, pulling me close, quick
 and your lips pressing against mine
 with such passion 
and conviction; 
I would’ve sworn you loved me
