    Okay I've been asking a lot of people this question. Is it possible to live your entire life without experiencing intimacy with the opposite sex. I'm talking Kissing, holding hands, hugging and yes Sex, and also having no friends At all. No one to talk to other than family.

    Lets just say God cursed me when I was born. Sure I can live but whats the point of Life without Love?

    The Question I want answered is What the point of Life without Friendship and Love.

    well I am going to have to face these things, after some recent injuries I am not sure it is possible for me to function as a man anymore, at least not in the way I was before

    Thats exactly my life in a nutshell. I lost my love, passion for anything anymore. I fell on dark times. My life is spiraling out of control.

    I'm a huntsman by trade and if it wasnt for the love and companionship of the animals i hunt with i'd go crazy in no time at all, i would rather be out in a field with them than socialising, even on christmas i went out hunting with ferrets before anyone woke up, came back for dinner then went out with my hawk, when it got dark i then went out with my dog. was a good day :biggrin:

    There is no point, Im sorry for saying this, but probably you already know the answer. Life without love, as you describe it here, is the reason that I want to die, and probably I will soon.
    I cant have love because of my look and health. What are your reasons?

    I'm 40, never kissed, held hands, dated or hugged. Can I do this for my entire life? Well I guess I've no choice really. So what's the point of life? I guess I have my own answers, but each person needs to find their own reasons.

    Well, you're right, there are some person who dont care much about love and that kind of things, they have other goals, and thats what is more important for them. So, their life has a point. But, Im not one of them, and probably SamSus47 isn't too, I mean, thats what I can see from his thread, because he is asking the same questions that Im asking myself all the time. Well, I have already find the answers, and they are not positive. So, I just hope that he will find a reason to live.

    There are many differnt types of love other than human love. But as for your question the answer would be to find whatever happiness you can. In whatever shape or form.

    I've never known the love of another, not even from my family.

    Life without love is meaningless.

    I have all that except I don't even have family to talk to. It's not life. It's death.

    Well I don't know about my whole life , but the last 15 years I have been on my own. It hasn't bothered me because my last relationship drained me of trust. I won't let anyone get that close again. I am 51 and have no interest in another relationship. I have my dog and his love is all I need!!!

    for those 15 years alone have you never hugged or dated another female or have friends to talk to?

    I know homeless people have no friends or girlfriends but what goes through their mind from keeping them from going crazy.

    Agree totally. Falling in love will not solve all of your problems, it's naive to think that. You've got to find yourself as well.

    What do you mean Find myself? Can you explain I really need help to change my way of thinking

    Learn to like yourself, appreciate the good aspects of your personality, be kind to yourself and be proud when you achieve a goal. Try and think about things you do like about yourself.
    Find hobbies, pastimes, things you personally love to do, whatever they are.

    Think of things you'd like to do with your life, aside from finding a partner, even if it's crazy, like when you were a child and you had lots of dreams of being grown up.

    Falling in love is a major part of live and satisfaction, but there are other ways to find happiness.

    There were 3 times I came close to being in a relationship:

    1) There was a girl I really liked at school, but unfortunately my mum was a manic depressive and my dad left us. So eventually when she wanted to get to know me better, that simply couldn't happen.

    2) The next time was at University, we really clicked but I felt she deserved better, I introduced her to my best mate but he treated her badly so she left him and went with somebody who treated her even worse. Strange how life works out.

    3) Years later there was another girl I liked, but as she was in the habit of jumping off bridges and setting fire to herself I knew that wouldn't work out. But none of this particularly bothers me now so why am I mentioning it?

    Well it's just that sometimes I think "If I met somebody wouldn't life be great?" I guess sometimes it's great and sometimes it's a nightmare, sometimes you can deal with it and sometimes you can't. Sometimes I reget being single all my life, and long for a fairy tale relationship, however I can't forget that life simply isn't like that. So what do I want? I don't know, life simply goes on and I wonder "What is love, really?"

    When we are talking about love, we talk about atraction, likeing someone, the need to have someone, not to be alone, to have someone to hug and to be hugged, to kiss and to be kissed, and maybe something more. Thats love.
    But, if you are talking about true love, thats another story.
    True love has nothing common with love, i mean, true love can have anything that love can have, but some things that come with true love, are not coming with love, and most of the people can have love, but just 2% of them can find true love.
