I have been single for years and the last time I had sex was 2009. So 5 years ago.

I'm mostly fine was being single but I am definitely feeling that I'd love some real intimacy. I'm not BU in this, surely? smile blush

YANBU. I see your 5 years and raise you...8. I split up from ex in Jan 2006 and didn't have sex again until this January, and that was a ONS with someone I already knew. I've been dating someone but we haven't slept together yet and he's being a bit of an arse so it'll be a miracle if it happens hmm.

I miss it. I just hope it isn't another eight years until next time grin.

Good to see I'm not alone! Dumped in November 2009 when 3 months pregnant... Litte opportunity for dating (let alone anything else!) since.

Think I've forgotten how it all works ;-)

I was dumped while pregnant too, Cracker. I didn't date at all for several years but my ONS showed me that I definitely haven't forgotten how it all works wink.

It's incredibly difficult because I am really yearning for physical contact and it makes me sad I won't be held, kissed or loved for possibly a long time! Sorry to moan!

SoftKittyWarmKitty Sun 09-Mar-14 17:46:05

Why do you think that Sad? Everyone is loveable. What's your situation? Have you thought of online dating?

sadandtired14 Sun 09-Mar-14 18:27:58

Oh I've had no luck with that and plus I do find it hard as it's so very artificial - obviously that's the nature of the beast so to speak but in the past when I've liked someone it's been due to a human sort of response which I've never had online, unfortunately!

I was dumped three times in 2008. Not had sex since. I miss sex but do not want a guy in my life right now.

Feel exactly the way you do.....I miss intimacy, being held etc. and there seems no way that is going to change. Am so so sad that I am destined to be on my own forever. And I agree Online dating is truly awful.

There are web sites where you can meet someone for no strings sex and I believe swingers clubs welcome single women. There are a shortage there and they usually get in for free. See the swingers thread in S&B if this appeals, perhaps?

sadandtired14 Sun 09-Mar-14 18:36:54

To tell you the truth it doesn't appeal bunty but thank you!

SoftKittyWarmKitty Sun 09-Mar-14 18:42:00

I've been online dating but it's very harsh. It's difficult to meet anyone irl though as my friends are all married and don't want to go out and my colleagues are all much younger than me.

There's a swingers thread in S&B?!

sometimes all i want is a hug.. from some one other than my children or friends.

i used to have a male friend who'd give the most amazing hugs, we'd cudle n watched a movie kind of thing.. but i blew that couple of months ago.

i cant ever see my self getting with some one else and its rarther lonely.

formerbabe Sun 09-Mar-14 18:47:19

Sadandtired...don't lose hope. I agree you need chemistry and you only get that when u meet someone face to face. I met a guy online (many many moons ago before Mr formerbabe!)...we had amazing chemistry from the first meeting so you never know!

Holliewantstobehot Sun 09-Mar-14 18:54:40

Four years and counting - am now petrified at the thought of meeting someone new. I know I should just get out there and do it but I have developed a real mental block over the whole thing to the point where if I even suspect someone is flirting with me I panic. But then my exh put me down a lot and I never want to be the person I was when we were together again. I just don't trust myself to pick a goodun!

This sums it up for me.
