Default What makes you feel truly loved?

For me, it's knowing that someone is always there for me and feeling like they pay attention to all the little details of my life, no matter how boring.

How about you?

For me, knowing that no matter where we are, we will always love each other. And have that love with us wherever we go.

like puppy, for me it's the little things.

be it something done or something noticed, doesn't really matter. could be something as simple as a text message. i'm not one for grand gestures, so little notes or simple smiles are all it takes for me.

When I can feel it. A warm, close hug. Grabbing my hand to hold it when we're out. I was out once in a crowded mall with my ex and I was trying on glasses and he snuck up behind me in front of so many people and nuzzled and kissed my neck. Yes, that's when I feel it.

When my little sis comes in the door and gives me a kiss because she's happy to see me.

Touch is under-rated.

Unexpected care packages. My best friend handmade me a sock monkey because I had a love for them since childhood. It came with a note that the socks were from her husband and son's drawers, the two younger kids picked out the buttons for eyes and named him. I was in tears because it felt like love.

My Mom mailed me homemade buns once. We don't live far away. It was just a sweet gesture of love.

Ok, I have to stop, i'm sounding corny.

To connect in a way beyond words in which I'm truly heard and understood at my essence
To feel this same connection toward my partner

Being touched affectionately, tenderly, passionately

Actions matching words

Having faith in who I am, not in what a partner may project through their own fears

Supporting my strengths, not critisizing and harrassing me about my weaknesses

Gentle encouragement of my growth and goals

My partner (and myself) not buying into my fears

A nice loving sexy swat on the butt at least 5 times a day

Love-making that is passionate, urgent, both tender and--not to be too cliché but--unbridled

Quiet deeply-connected moments

Silly, goofy, simple play

There are two categories of answers to this, I think. One is based upon my own specific needs -- such as needing to hear that my mate loves me. I know he does, but I need to hear it on a regular basis. Some don't; I do.

The other is based upon the things he in particular does that I can see are done out of love and that therefore make me feel loved -- such as my husband going to pains to make me happy, comfortable and cared for in general, and then specifically to make our home as lovely as possible for me when I went to visit last month.

I won't make the whole list, because it feels too private to do so, but there are a couple, anyway.

When I find out about sweet things my guy never told me about...

Like when my ex would rub my back when I'd have bad dreams until I stopped contorting- I didn't know he did it, because I was asleep. One night I woke up in the middle of a nightmare, and he was there taking care of me.

I've always wanted a guy who would doodle my name or something... I love making tags of my boyfriend's name, for his clothing line. He kisses me, ecstatic, every time I dole out a new one.

Holding hands, cooking me dinner.

Waking up and finding his arms wrapped around me. That kind of thing

Also, when they do simple, random, strange things that they know have meaning to me...
Whenever I look glum, Justin says, "Hey!"
"What?"
"Don't talk shit about Total."

For me I'd have to say it's when my SO does the little things. The little things are just as important as the big ones!!!

Like coming home from the grocery store with my favorite ice cream that I didn't ask for or coming outside to greet me with a hug when I get home from work. (That could have totally waited until I got inside, but he chose to go the extra mile.)

similar to that, for me, i'd say.
knowing that she will always listen to me, instead of just hearing me.
knowing that she will always want to be there when i feel alone or sad or blue.
having her hand to hold on to.
feeling her arms around me when i fall asleep at night, and when i wake up in the morning.
having her wipe my tears away, and feeling assured that i'm the little light in her life that keeps her going, because she's the same to me.

these are things i dream of.
things i hope will, one day, be reality.

There's also much to be said for a husband who does all the housecleaning. And fixes everything. Ah, engineers. Not the most romantic of beings, but by golly every works.

But seriously folks, a full-body massage does it for me every time.

I have to be totally honest here....

All of these responses just made me cry...

Whether or not love has anything to do with it, I'm a sucker for forehead kisses and cute, little notes.

Honestly, any sort of thoughtful act that says you're thinging of me when I'm not around pretty much wins me over.

A big but gentle bear hug.

When someone i care deeply for disagrees with me, but allows me to actually keep my own opinion.

When someone cares enough to tell me the truth rather than what may be assumed i just want to hear.

When someone is willing to not only saty up to watch the sun rise with me but also makes me a coffee to keep out the chill of the early morn.

Snuggling up on the sofa watching a corny movie.

Not forgetting a very special one a friend did for me last year when my dad died; not knowing what to say Tom just took me out for a drive & took me back to the place i grew up & was happiest walking through the country estate learning all about wildlife from my dad - I think that has to be the top of my list when i felt truely loved by a friend.

A second chance. That’s what made me feel truly loved, among many other things, but above anything. Someone who still believed in me, when I had stopped believing in myself. Someone who was willing to forgive me, when I couldn’t forgive myself. I'm not sure why I'm writing in the past tence, but whatever. Meh.

I feel loved (not necessarily romantic) when:
  • I call someone and can hear true delight in their voice from hearing from me.
  • I get a big hug, kiss or smile from one of the children I work with.
  • I hear squeals of excitement when I tell someone I’m coming to visit.
  • Someone goes out of his or her way to help me when I really need it.
  • I get offers to help me move (which is something I know I would only do for someone I really, really liked or loved).

When my husband always calls me "Sweetness!"

In the middle of the night when I roll over to face him and without a word he reaches for my hand to hold.

When I am having a really bad arthritis day.........he helps me put on my socks...silly thing, but truely appreciated!!!!!!!!!!

When I am late teaching or singing and I finally drive up in my car....he hears the door slam and comes outside to make certain the light is on, carries my briefcase and then walks with me inside.

After thirty one years, things like this never get old!
Love you, my David!
Hugs, Kara...aka Sweetness!
