I crave the same 'warm' feeling you get when you hold a girl in your arms. It's wonderful. It beats any other feeling on the planet, in my opinion even better than you know what. What would make it even better is if you were also very emotionally close to that person.
I think it's a common thing for some SA'ers to long for human contact and connection, for we do mostly find it virtually unnattainable a good deal of the time. I think this could almost be a form of connection hunger as well i.e having the access to intimacy, mutual understanding, sexual healing etc etc.
Yea I think this is relatively common for not just women, but males as well. I know I sure as hell miss having that intimate connection, both mental and physical, with a beautiful woman.
I've got you beat Under Pressure; been almost 2 years for me now of not having any real intimate contact with a female I was attracted to.........over a year since I've even bothered going on a first date(just too much anxiety for me and I am a wuss with rejection).
But I think we all long to feel the warmth and comfort you get from having an intimate partner that you can just touch, hold, play with their fingers......and all that other romanticism garbage I still hold dear to me for some reason........I try telling myself I'm a little wuss and stuff, haha, especially when I get into this mood/depression on random nights where I am just feel entirely all alone and miss the comfort I've had in past, intimate relationships.
I honestly think it's even worse, for both guys and girls, that have had that "special someone" at one point in their life and then lost that partner some how. Living with a heart that's shattered is annoying.........depressing initially, then over time if you can't overcome it and move on it really just becomes this monkey on your back.......can't escape it, but you can't move on and seek out a new relationship and partner; both because of this aspect and obviously the whole SA part of things.
Bah! Like all of you I hate this subject. I feel so worthless saying that I'm lonely and crave the sensual touch of a womans simple hand........
