I Suffer From "skin Hunger"!

It's been such a long time since someone touched me. I love it when I am touched, caressed, held, hugged, or cuddled. Oh, sex is great too, but I would be happy being petted or stroked.

I'm single and alone. I feel that I am unattractive and undesirable. Damaged merchandise that nobody wants. I think my life wouldn't be so pathetic and I wouldn't be so needy if just someone would spend some time with and touch me. I call it "skin hunger."

Would love to stroke you

Yes, a nice tingly touch can return him to the elect position

I can relate to this feeling and the name "skin hunger" is a good name for it.

Just recently, I've been getting to know a neighbor who is now a friend and we give each other a nice long hug each time we part company. I now long for those hugs each night and feel that I draw some energy from that contact.

I've been single for 13 years after being married for 14 years. Only just recently have I begun to have bouts of severe loneliness and I don't like it.

I understand how you feel. Its a touch hunger, a certification of being human, alive.
