Is it really so terrible? Because at times I feel like being a hopeless romantic sounds nice, but at the same time can be self destructive. I like holding hands- things like that, kiss hello, kiss good bye- but is that in any way needy? Just a thought.

I am almost sure all those things I like and crave only because I was deprived of it for so many years. I can say that the last relationship I was in I could count how many times I was even told I was loved or even missed. I never held hands, hardly got kisses…

It’s the things we are deprived of that we want the most.


And that’s all I really have to say about that.
