    An emotional connection is more important

    than a physical connection sometimes. It's amazing to have both...but you don't always get that. I had a huge emotional connection with my now ex fiancee. A mental connection....but the physical connection wasn't there. We both thought that it would just follow at some point...

    I miss having someone to text during the day.

    Someone who cares, someone I share a connection with.. It's seems harder to find these days. I don't know why? So many people online say what they know you want to hear, lead you on then POOF! They're gone. Just be yourself. Respect and be honest. That's not a lot to ask is it...

    An emotional connection is what makes people

    important to me. It turns a completely superficial relationship into a union of substance. It's a magical feeling that's rare and is not experienced with everyone, that comes into your life. It's that moment in time, when you realize this person gets it and understands you in a...

    That initial emotional connection to a mother

    The lack of normal warm affect shown by many

    people today is disturbing and leaves us struggling to fill our emotional needs. I think learning to recognize and give love starts with the infants early interaction with parents. It is essential in early development that the child feels a solid real emotional bond to those...

    With me, this is a rare encounter.

    I wish it happened more or I almost wish I was capable of ignoring it sometimes, but the fact remains, unless it is there, relationships generally can't begin.

    One of my favorite authors has this to say

    regarding intimacy: "... there can be no intimacy—emotional intimacy, spiritual intimacy, physical intimacy—without vulnerability. One of the reasons there is such an intimacy deficit today is because we don’t know how to be vulnerable. It’s about being honest with how...

    Tiny Rant...

    If it's true love, you will connect emotionally. I don't see how any 2 people could get along, or feel significant to one another without that connection. A physical attraction and saying the words "I love you" are not enough, they wear thin over time, it's really miraculous...

    I've gotten sentimental over the years,

    especially when it involves you. I want to give you my thoughts in delicate packaging. Every word carefully chosen, written neatly, soft, crisp and clean. I'm not worried for when we are together. I just dread every moment we are apart.

    Physical interaction is a must

    and I don't think those kind of things ever go away, but when you part with the person of said connection, its like something is missing. Like a part of yourself. I'd like to say it is easier on the soul to just not make these connections, but then again that would imply it was...

    It's the truest and the best kind.

    If I don't have an emotional connection with someone I can't carry on anything. It doesn't feel like anything. It doesn't become anything. Just another fleeting meet and greet.

    The Other Edge

    Emotional connection is a two edged thing. It opens to you the best of another one, what is known, what becomes a discovery. It can also make you know what you shouldn't, not without some pain. What was always there but you don't expected to remain. What is hidden, what...

    Nothing about me needs to be hide.I want other people to know me and understand me.But sometimes I feel they are not related to my life.They don't have to know me and I don't need to tell whatever I feel or what my situation is.
