Do We ACTUALLY Want Boyfriends Or Are We Just Bored In Quarantine?
Start writing a post

I'm severely lacking in social interaction. I miss my roommate, I miss my friends, I miss my peers. I miss the droning of professors' lectures during class. I miss the countless events hosted by my clubs and my friends' organizations.

I miss seeing someone, anyone, outside of my family in real life.

Of course, I get my daily fulfillment of social interaction with my family, as well as daily Discord or Zoom calls and movie/game streams with my closest friends. We would spend hours talking to each other as we social distance in isolation while getting our work done and trying to keep a sense of normalcy in our lives.

But I'm still not really fulfilled.

I have a lot of work to get done, both at home for school, however, my mind wanders and I feel myself wanting something more than the daily rants and interactions with my friends and new strangers I've become acquainted with when we play games online.

Do I want more friends? Am I craving the need to feel like I could relate to someone on a personal level?

My mind keeps searching and searching for the answer, and yet I can't find anything to explain the weird sensations within wanting me to delve into uncharted territory once again to feel my heart skip a beat and the butterflies in my stomach.

I stay up all night regardless, due to my incredibly inefficient time management skills the result of being home all day in quarantine, rather than being the productive busy bee I usually am. But why would I crave the need to stay up all night talking to a singular person — whom I may or may not know personally, rather than the larger group of friends I have loved and known for years? Why do I crave an experience I can easily fulfill with the platonic, almost familial love shared among my group of friends?

Yet, I already know the answer.

I crave the adrenaline, the rush, the feeling of feeling something other than the constant anxiety and uncertainty of where the world I know is heading. It's the chase of excitement, the high I feel with talking to someone, not knowing where anything is heading. It's been a long while since I felt it.

Maybe it's for the entertainment since I'm bored, but maybe I really do crave the beauty of falling in love once again.

I will preach this until the day I'm in the ground, nudes are an essential.

They are just as essential as toilet paper is right now and they have more power than just being a photo that's hidden on your iPhone. Nudes aren't just a way to turn on the guy/girl you've been hanging out with, but they can elicit a feeling of confidence and pure sexuality.
