Sometimes when I say "I'm okay," I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight, and say "I know you're not."

Oh my gosh, can't tell you how many times I wished for this to happen.

I know, right?

I think I'd actually break down in tears. Good tears though. To have someone notice and care about you that much...would just melt your heart.

I want someone that realizes this, too!

Yes.

I've tried that. I get: "I told you nothing is wrong, why do you have to press the issue?" I don't do it anymore. If she says she's ok, then she's good to go. Doesn't mean I believe her.

Her loss

Believe it or not, those men like me, with a sensitive side, we'd love to do nothing more than just hold you until the pain goes away.

When my mother died, I needed to hold my wife and just feel her body next to mine. Sadly, she didn't have the time to do that for me. I grieved not only the sudden loss of my mom but also the isolation of the woman who is supposed to love me.

That's horrible. I'm sorry that you had to go through that.

Yes, I know exactly how you feel because I am going through such a rough time and I get so tired of saying I'm ok when I am just dying inside-I don't have anyone to hug me and sometimes I wish there was someone who could hold me and let me cry in their arms. So I sympathize with you

I'm sorry you are not ok...
