What it feels like to be Loved ?

What's it like to feel loved? I don't mean what does it feel like to be in love with someone - that I know. I'm asking for what makes you feel loved by someone else?

Maybe I've never been loved; maybe I just never FELT like I was loved. The people who have said the words have all gone on to treat me quite badly or with indifference; making me feel like it's just something meaningless that people say, or that the people who have said it didn't mean it. But there must be something to it, because people with love in their lives seem to have a confidence and feeling of security that comes from knowing that they're loved - something that I've never had.

Early Stages of Love

There's nothing quite as exhilarating as the early stages of a romantic relationship. Just the thought that you may have found your one-and-only can be so thrilling. But, the early stages of falling in love can be as frustrating as they are wonderful. Your new love life may consume your energy, focus, and time to the point where everything else going on in your life may feel like a rude intrusion. You can't stop thinking about your lover. You get up and go to sleep obsessing about the relationship and what your future will look like together.

To some of you, this reaction to love may seem over board. But, many of you know first-hand how falling in love can turn you into an obsessed, needy, and insecure person for a time. You don't have to have emotional issues from the past to feel this way. Of course, if you do, this stage will be particularly difficult for you.

Remember, the saying is not staying balanced in love, it is falling, losing your self to love. So, if you are in the early stages of falling in love right now, and you feel a little crazy, don't worry, you kind of are. You are under the influence of your hormones that are making you feel, all at once, euphoric, endangered, and exhausted. Let's call these the Three E's of falling in love.


It is more than two hearts igniting, when people fall in love. Their hormones ignite as well. The nerve transmitters adrenaline and phenylethylamine (PEA-also present in chocolate) increase when two people are attracted to each other that puts them in emotional overdrive. Additionally, the relaxation, feel good hormone serotonin lowers, causing you to obsess about your lover and consistently reflect back on the romantic times spent with him or her.

At Present

I broke up with my Ex-Gf its almost been a year n half or so (idk). And everything was going well untill i found out that she'd been doing stuff that i didn't like, despite me saying her to stop all of that. She still determined carried on what she liked. But now I'm all broke and looking for someone to make me feel very special again. I've had many encounters but none of them make me feel good like before.
I just wanted to be loved again...
