Howdy,

After botching'' my answer to you a day or two ago I decided to play with
things myself and came up with this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{titlesec}

\renewcommand{\thesubsection}{\arabic{subsection}}
\newcommand{\secfmt}{\makebox[0pt][r]{\thesection. }}
\newcommand{\subsecfmt}{\makebox[0pt][r]{\thesubsection. }}
\titleformat{\section}{\normalfont\Large\bfseries}{\secfmt}{0pt}{}
\titleformat{\subsection}[runin]{\normalfont\bfseries}{\subsecfmt}{0pt}{}
\titlespacing*{\subsection}{0pt}{\parskip}{0pt}

\begin{document}
\section{The First Section}

\subsection{}
This is the First SubSection in the First Section. I'll add a bunch of stuff
just so that there is a long paragraph and it wraps so I can see that the
formatting is working properly.

This is the Second Paragraph of the First SubSection in the First Section.

I think it does approximately what you want. Note that it puts the
(sub)section numbers in the left margin. If that is a problem you can
increase the left margin using the geometry package. This is done to keep
nice alignment of numbered and unnumbered paragraphs.

If yhou don't want indented paragraphs add the lines:

\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}
\setlength{\parskip}{\smallskipamount}

Good Luck,
