I'm not sure that the need to feel loved can or should be curbed so much as postponed. There are times that only true physical exhaustion overrides my desire to be held. Other times, when it's really the emotional need to share life's decision making (why can't I have a husband who knows whether to sink more money into car repairs or start shopping for a new vehicle?) I can fall back on God. He promised to never leave me nor forsake me -- and He knows everything! When I don't know what to do, He'll show me. When I start to worry about finances, He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. When I feel unloved, He wraps me up in His everlasting arms.

I say a Memorare first thing in the morning as soon as I wake up for purity of heart and ability of practice self discipline so that I can resist temptations. When I'm going through a particularly difficult time, I try to stay busy and to get out of the house to spend time with friends. For me, at least, it eases the longing for a physical connection if I'm connecting with other people through a variety of less intimate activities.

One word: Prayer.

Not sure about going to the beach though. Seeing other people in swimsuits could make your eyes lust and your temptaions worse.

Try reading the bible slowly and prayerfully. Hope that works. God bless
