The compelling urge for physical contact can be cured via my invention The Hugbot. Currently my project lacks funding, but if I get it off the ground, there will be no one left un-hugged. And yes, The Hugbot will be able to make coffee too.

I sometimes hug my pillow too. And I tried hugging myself a few weeks ago when I was feeling particularly hopeless and lonely. It did seem to help a little bit. Just the fact that someone cared about me, even if it was myself, lifted my spirits.

Yeah I'm huge into cuddling, my cat hates me now and will run away everytime I am close.

Hey anyone who lives in Denver pm me and lets hang out in real life. I'm very nonjudgmental so lets make real life friends and have fun!

This.

I feel a lot of jealousy when I see kids half my age that already have a partner and they're holding hands and whatnot like it's no big deal. They totally take it for granted, it seems.

If I could experience that for 2 minutes, it would be like the highlight of my year.

This really hit home for me. I've been wanting someone to hold and spoil for the longest time, It just haven't happened. I really haven't been out in the public eye all that much lately so im sure that doesnt help. But i'm a bigger guy and am always self-consicous of how girls look at me. Don't get me wrong, I have girl friends that say im sweet and nice...like a big teddy bear. But it's not the same when you go to sleep alone every night. i hope everybody finds that special someone because you all seem very nice and genuwine people.

I craaave too. It's like a fire, pent up in my frustrated heart. Just to be touched, held, loved. Like getting kisses and holding hands and getting called beautiful. But it just doesn't happen. =/

I don't care for it. If I want something to hug it'll be a stuffed toy, but I don't think I'd want to touch a person.
