    Its very liberating and empowering to know you

    I think that sums it all up,

    I guess. :) For someone to like me for me and then want me or need me is the thing that I want the most. That's the essence of loneliness isn't it? That you are no one's priority? It must be a nice feeling to have someone missing you when you're not around.. Might actually...

    It's Not That

    I would ever want to cheat on my bf, but I do like the idea of other men thinking about me while they do 'other things'. I'm completely faithful in my relationship. I love my boyfriend, but I want to be wanted. It is so exciting to know what people really think about me. I guess...

    I want to be important to someone.

    I want someone to miss me when I die. I want my best friend to know that I often feel unwanted and replaceable. I am afraid to tell him because I worry he will think being friends with me is to much of a burden and stop talking to me. I don't want my friends to feel obligated...

    Doesn't Everyone?

    Deep down I think everyone wants to be wanted, it's just some people are a little more open about it than others. It's the ultimate compliment having someone want you, and sometimes that can be enough to give you a little boost for the day. Knowing I've been on someone's mind...

    I Want To Be Wanted .... But I Push People Away

    I have spent so long with the knowledge that my thought processes are different than most people, and even more time knowing that people leave, no matter what you do to try and make them stay. So now, instead of letting people accept me for who I am, the minute people get close...

    My Parents Yelled All The Time

    I knew they loved me even though they hated each other.  But they stayed together for a long time (until now, when I am 35), and throughout that they have screwed up many important events in my life.  Their giant fights always seem to occur just before something good happens to...

    This doesn't fit me well,

    but I feel like I should comment still because I'm on that other side of the fence. I want to be there for those who are seeking being wanted, so I figured it would be nice to put a post into this group

    I am wanted. By my friends & by my family. But I want more than that. I want that one person to want me for who I am. The good and the bad. I've tried to be positive about it & it's not like I'm a horrible person. So far my love life has followed the same pattern! Someone starts...

    To feel needed, desired gives one such empowerment; horrible sounding, is it not?

    It is disgusting that I actually feel selfish

    for wanting to be wanted by someone else. I feel invisible, irrelevant and undesirable... A tragic combination of emotions.

    Worthy Of.

    Wanting to be wanted can encompass so many different kinds of ideas.  I love being alone, but sometimes just knowing that another person is able to look at me and see me as a person worthy of being cared for... sometimes this is all I need.
