I Would Love To Be Held

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 664 People


    I always thought I would hate being held or cuddled. Mainly because I realized how much I don't like my little sister stealing hugs and trying to cuddle with me. It's really annoying. But then sometimes I'm alone and I get this tension in my chest and emptiness all around me and...

    I havent been held in almost a year...and it's terrifying. I never get hugs either, unless it's from my parents, who I see maybe once a month. I wish someone would hold me again.

    I Never Have Been

    Even when I was but a child I would be the one holding my mother to ease her pain from the divorce... But who will ease my pain and loneliness? I don't matter enough to anyone that they would bother to even notice how depressed and lonely I am. I've never had arms around me...

    I was in love in a way i've never felt before, I had found my best friend. I should have known her childhood had such intense consequences. She was abandoned by her mother and met her father after she met me. It seems to have corrupted love for her, to the point that the...

    I Miss Being In His Arms

    Being held is one of those little things in life that you often take for granted. I always loved being in his arms but I wish I would have spent more time there. After 2 months of not having anyone to hold me it seems like forever till I will be back in his arms. Each night I lay...

    Crave Waiting Arms

    I'm gone for five days every week. I get lonely. Starve for conversation, especially female conversation. Because of the transparency of a women and hugging and intimacy. I can't wait to get home to open arms. I want it. But sometimes I have to go find them. Why aren't they...

    I Would Love To Find Someone To Hold Me And

    I have been married now for some 20 years, but never a hug, a warm rub on the shoulders, a hold of the hand nor a kiss. No matter how many people are around you, without that warm reassurance of physical contact it is a cold and lonely life. Al you non-touched peoples out there...

    I would love it so much. I just want to feel loved and wanted. I feel like nobody cares most of the time. When I see people hugging in the street and around me I think it's cute but I have to turn away after a couple of seconds because I can't look. I just get this horrible...

               - Seriously, it's a part of human nature. To want to be close to someone, held, loved. It's not something that everyone gets but everyone wants it just the same. I'm no different. Sometimes I come off as too needy, but for the...

    I Feel Like A Loser As I Think About This All The Time...

    I worry I am going to end up a bitter, lonely old woman who deep down just needs to be held and who craves physical contact. Cut out the old part and this person could be me which is a scary and not so nice thought. Sometimes I just feel so uncertain, so unworthy and useless that...

    I would love to be held....By strong arms, relaxed, secure, feeling sexy, how amazing is that?  .....And now I am - sometimes.  What I have discovered is it's not the arms themselves, but having that option that makes all the difference...!  Oh, isn't life full of promise...

    My Soul Is Crying

    I rarely shed tears - I believe they convey weakness and I have to be strong. Always. I'm not allowed to cry or be sad or be angry or be too anything. Feels like my soul is crying all the time; like I swallowed hot coals and they need to be extinguished. I don't need much...

    It's One Of My Dreams

    Sadly I have yet to be held. I have held a few guys I've gone out with, but it has never really been reciprocated. So I honestly don't know how it feels to have someone wrap their arms around you in a loving embrace. I imagine it's the most wonderful feeling when someone cares...
