I Wish I Could Actually Feel Cyber Hugs

Cyber gesturing is empty and leaves one craving true contact 574 People

    It's Okay, I Really Don't Need It Anyhow.

    I remember a while back I went to some seminar that said people that go without physical contact meaning affectionate hugs longer than a month will go crazy. A month!? At that point I had gone about a year without receiving a hug. So did this mean I was crazy? I didn't think so...

    An expression Of Feeling

     CYBER-HUGS are given to those we connect with, with friends and lovers, in person and on the Internet.  We cannot physically feel someones arms around us but we know what that feeling is like and we enjoy being hugged.  I know I do.  I wish I could actually...

    That Would Be The Best!

    I really wish I could feel the hugs... I hardly ever get hugs in real life anymore.. and people on ep are always giving me virtual hugs. If I could feel all of them... I would feel so much better.

    Love Hugs

    Hugs always makes me feel better. Cyber hugs are great to. Just wished that I could feel the human touch.

    My happiness is built on several things

    and one of them is hugs. I need a certain amount of hugs per day... Which I haven't had my system of hugs in order since an incident about seven months ago. [My first Experience on here explains the incident, if you're curious.] Do hugs make you happy too?

    I Do!!!!!

    I get more cyber hugs than I get real hugs, which kind of sucks considering I can't feel cyber hugs and yet, those are the ones I get the most, lol.

    I am definitely a hugger.

    I guess that annoys some people, but I need my hugs. There is something very calming about being held so close. So, I guess since there is a shortage of real hugs in my life right now, cyber hugs will do just fine. :)

    It May Not Be The Same...

    But I will take any hug I can get. It warms my heart any time I can get a hug. I just bought a free hugs shirt. I think it's time to test it out.

    *hug*..much Better!

    This goes right along with wanting to hear my EP friend's voices.  I am a hugger, I grew up in an affectionate family with a lot of hugs, and friends that were just as willing.  I love hugging!  I even hug on a first meeting.  So when someone gives me a cyber...

    And sometimes I can Some cyber hugs really

    make me feel warm and loved, but not all of them do. (But not all real ones do either.) Maybe it depends on how personal they are, how well someone imagines hugging people instead of just typing "hug", how much love they put into it, or on what connection I have with the sender...

    Wouldn't That Be Nice

    Usually virtual hugs are the only ones I get. I love hugs and crave them. Never get them except on virtual sites. Aching void inside me.

    Not As Good As Real Ones

    People give them out all the time online...strangers and online friends. But reading *hugs* just does not compare to a real life hug ):

    My Dream

    The other night TRW had created a group similar to this one. I was looking at it right before I went to bed and it caused me to dream that a virtual reality game was created around EP and the game allowed users to play games similar to WOW but it wasn't violent at all. You could...

    I love hugs and there are some hug worthy people in my group who I am sure would be able to give fantastic hugs if I could only feel them. It's nice to get a cyber hug from one of my special friends and when I send one back I hope they know that given the chance I would not...

    So True....so True!

    Man, this is a perfect group!  Man, do I wish I could actually feel those cyber hugs I get on here.  Wow!  That would be so wonderful.  But not just the cyber hugs...the cyber kisses too!  If all the gestures I got were real....it would be absolutely wonderful!

    Cyber Hug

    It seems in real life when I need a hug nobody who really knows me can even tell. Where as on here everyone can! And they send their helpfulness cyberly. I wish I could feel this hug just to know that even someone who doesn't know me cares and is willing to show it.

    I Do

    I wish I could Actually feel a Cyber hug. But we can't, it just leaves us wanting to have a real hug even more than we already did. Sometimes its pure tourutre to not be able to feel the real hugs :(

    I wish I couldn't feel, so that I wouldn't be able to feel anything that could make me sad or get hurt. Sucks
