    Never Been In A Relationship

    I've never been in a relationship. I've had several close friends who were girls over the years, even had a crush on some of them; but I'm perpetually incapable of acting on them. Recently, through my interactions with one of my friends (whom I've come to realize I'm beginning...

    Yeah

    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.

    Yupp

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Lovely To Be Held

    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...

    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 think I miss being held more than anything. Since my separation & eventual divorce...I have had a hard time sleeping at night....and I think that this is a major factor. I love falling asleep while being held. It's a comfort thing...makes me feel calm & like all is right...

               - 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 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...

    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...

    Pain

    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 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...
