are hormones to blame?

There are times in one's life that you just feel like you want to be loved. It is like you yearn for someone to just be there and laugh with you on a tv show. Call it hopelessly romantic and cheesy type, but, it is true. Once in a while, you say to yourself that you want some sense of security, some sense of belonging... are hormones to be blamed with this kind of feeling? physiologically speaking, the body may be needing a flood of 'happy hormones' that is synonymous with the feeling of being loved or appreciated. So how do I thwart this feeling? I eat chocolates and ice cream and/or drink coffee. Sometimes, when the budget is good, I go shopping, or I buy a book. These are the things that make me feel good.. how bout you?? how do you thwart the feelings of isolation and longing all by yourself?

It's a normal human need to feel self-actual inaction or something akin to the feeling of being needed or important. It can be hormones, it can be our genetic make up, but humans are social animals. There will always come a point in our life that's e will crave for some company. But sometimes, as much as we want to, we cannot force the circumstances to go our way. We will find ourselves alone or single not because we want to but because we just can't strike to be close to anybody at that time. We can curb that feeling by surrounding us with positive people, some friends that we can spend time with while waiting for the right time, or person to come. You can start a new hobby or hone your talents to better yourself.

Hi! I think we all feel that there should be security and, irrespective of time or our age. Sometimes Hormones do play a role but not all the time. To get rid of isolation and to divert our mind it is better to indulge in something we love to do and to keep ourselves busy, possibly in doing something creative.

hi arizen, I think it depends on how old or how young you are. If you're young your feelings of love and passion has definitely got to do with your hormones. It's how human are 'made'. For an older person I think lack of hormones has the opposite effect and as a result an older person becomes moody or depressed. Have a good day.
