    Mixed Emotions

    I'm a firm believer in emotional connections, or a chemistry between two people.I was thinking about Love and all the emotions that follows it.Webster defines Love as 1) Strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties. 2) Affection based on admiration...

    We sometimes have to let go of people we feel

    connected with because they don't know what they want and what they want from us.

    If there isn't an emotional connection then

    there really isn't a relationship.

    What's the point in a relationship with anyone,

    if emotions are not even considered? If there's no emotional connection between you and whoever it may be, what makes them important to you? I think emotion is important to any relationship; be it family, friends, or even strangers.

    Even at the risk of breaking my heart,

    I'd rather have the memories. Short they may be, impossible they may be, than have nothing at all. - Lia

    All my life I have been invalidated by my family

    and so called "friends." When I am asked by my mom how I feel, and I tell her, I am immediately told, in so many words, that I don't feel THAT way, I feel THIS way instead. Ok. So I learned to "fake it." Fake it, so you get loved. Pretend to be what Mom (and others) want...

    Our Emotional Dance

    My therapist told me two days ago that if he were me he would "pull back" from my wife. He had to think for a moment after I posed this question to him, "in your professional opinion what do you think I should do at this point with my wife?" He prefaced his reply with...

    Before anything sexual happens I need to feel

    an emotional connection to her. I know this is soooo not a typical guy thing to say or way to be but I have gone into situations and it turned out bad. Left with extreme emotional guilt and trust issues. Therefore I always need to feel an emotional connection.

    I love the ebb and flow of it across the sharp

    rocks of everyday life. I believe we fatefully entwine at subconscious, subterranean depths with certain significant people in our lives. Sometimes we love them, sometimes we pass by them, but they never leave us.

    The name of this particular group is a misnomer

    The Emotional Connection..Is Only Half Of What Is Needed.

    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...

    I love meeting someone

    and immediately knowing there is a silent understanding we share. Sometimes you can just feel the vibe someone gives off, and know they are someone you need to know better, and when that feeling is mutual - It is so rare and amazing.

    Physical interaction is a must

    An emotional connection is what makes people

    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...
