I Want to Feel Close to Someone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,171 People

    Every time i try to make friends they push me

    off like they never knew me. I'm so lonely it makes me depressed. I hardly have any friends and sometimes I wonder what is the point of living. I just need someone to talk to and care for.

    Another Wish

    i'm lonely. Lonelier than ever, i don't really know how to cope with this anymore. I want to feel so so close to someone, emotionally and physically. I want them to understand me and to hold me close, to move their fingers in my hair and to touch my cheeks as they smile at me. I...

    one of those unforgettable bonds.

    I miss having a friend to call at 2 am.

    I've been that friend for WAY too many people who never reciprocated. Wish you could cash in karma like chips.

    I would love to have a college buddy

    that I can tell anything to, just like my friends in high school. I really am struggling to adjust in college. I want to do something about it, but I don't know how.

    If I had to say, I'm a really lonely girl.

    I don't have a close friend whom I could tell everything to, my sister who is like the best human being I like to be with is miles and miles away from me and I feel like I just gave up on romantic relationships. Yea I could tell my life story to the person behind the screen but...

    I do have people I love,

    but I love them unwillingly, and I don't really know them. I wonder what it's like love willingly, and to know someone. Is it overrated?

    So this is something I saw someone else posted,

    I think it might help. Is vulnerability weakness? I thought it was until I listened to Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability and based on twelve years of research, she argues that vulnerability is not weakness, but...

    It's all I want, it's all I can think about

    sometimes. I long for physical and emotional intimacy. I just want to be close with someone. I want to feel wanted, for once. I don't want to rush anything with anyone, but I am simply ready for something real to develop with the right person, whomever he may be.

    There's nothing in this world

    that compares to the feeling of being loved and cared about. I want to be the best friend, the one he runs to when he feels somebody to talk to, the one that makes everything better, the one that is his first choice before any other girl, the one that he would "take a bullet for...

    I struggle opening up to people.

    There is always this block that stops me from being myself like if I do show my true self then the person won't like me but then I think 'well if they're not accepting of me then why do they deserve to know me' then that opens up a whole host of other questions in my mind that...

    Cuddling

    I love cuddling with my girlfriend. It makes me feel so close to her on a physical and emotional level. I feel like I'm right at home. Right where I'm supposed to be. I love it. I love her.

    Just Hold Me Close

    Just hold me close And don't ask me why. I don't want to talk about it, I just want to cry. Just hold me close And don't ask me why. There's no greater pain than To be hurt by a friend.

    I'm usually very distant from everyone.

    Even the people I'm closest to have gotten so busy I feel completely alone most times. I'm depressed... I wish there was someone who would look past my imperfections and see me for who I am and stay around to truly know me. I give so much love and care but no one wants it. I...

    I'm too trusting too soon I suppose.

    .I try to not be that way because all I've encountered is people not worthy of that, and up until about a year ago I stayed with them hoping "lead by example" would pay off..it doesn't BTW

    I've dated some people

    but honestly (I know this sounds mean) I've never really had THAT feeling. Sometimes I want to be very close to someone. Whether it's a friend or more. But if that doesn't work out, I could always be a cat lady :P

    I like intimacy, not sexual

    but I'm a total romantic. I've been in a couple different long term relationships but am currently single and I miss having that closeness. I'll get there again someday though, I just have to wait it out.

    We were both over seas, and she ended up cheating on me. But I found out from her roommate. She never messaged me or texted me back, or returned my phone calls. I really cared about her and fought tooth and nail to get over it. I have been putting myself out there more trying to...

    I want a guy that I'm physically attracted to,

    and share similar values, attitudes, interests with me. Fun, interesting, loving, yet nerdy sometimes. Being close emotionally and spiritually first, then physical. Is that too much to ask? Why it's so hard to find the right one?
