I know I am desperate, but knowledge of desperation doesn't cure my craving for human contact. These days, I just wish I had someone to hug, hold hands, and look into their eyes. It's been months since I've last got a hug. Friends, work, hobbies, food, pornography cannot satisfy this empty hole in my heart.

Do you have pets? Nieces and nephews you can cuddle? You definitely need friends who are more huggy. Do you know about cuddle parties?

The sex drive was described as "An intolerable neural itch". I think that's a good description for lack of many types of intimacy.

Distraction will have to do.

You aren't SUPPOSED to get rid of this craving

Human beings are designed to need touch and intimacy with others (and not just sexually).

Here's what you do kid, get yourself over to the nearest senior retirement/nursing home first thing tomorrow afternoon.

Tell the director you'd like to visit with someone who doesn't get many visitors.

I guarantee you there are people even lonelier than you right now who would be happy to spend some time visiting and then give you a great big hug when you leave.

In other words, GET OUT OF OUR ON HEAD AND QUIT THINKING ONLY OF YOURSELF.

The quickest way in life to get what you think you need is to be willing to give it to others FIRST.

Sorry to hear this.

You'll find someone, eventually.

Hang in there buddy.

I used to have pets, but they all passed away. The place where I am at doesn't allow them, and the lease doesn't expire until later next year. I honestly did not expect that I would crave a hug like this. I don't have any relatives anywhere near me, nor have I made any friends that are comfortable with that stuff.

I don't know anything about cuddle parties.

What's really odd is that there are people who have it and totally take it for granted.

Pity.
