    Bad Connection

    Do I? Absolutely!!! During the course of my

    working life I come across people, both adult and children, that I don't feel that connection to. I struggle at times with that. It makes me uncomfortable as I spend less time - invest in them less - and I try to treat everyone as an equal.... Without that 'connection' it's all...

    Special People

    That initial emotional connection to a mother

    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...

    Mixed Emotions

    *HAPPY EVER AFTER* When you meet someone

    *Emotional connection is not about Love

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

    As I see it, emotional connection is based on

    mutual trust, a mutual exchange of empathy, compassion, and deep understanding with true tolerance for each other because the individuals fundamentally connect on the same emotional level. Once established, there is a "bareness" that can be exposed within that...

    The Connection of Souls

    It is something that only we can explain and it is different for each one of us. It comes into our lives without expecting and once it is there, it stays. It is a feeling that invades our minds, hearts and souls. It makes us to have so much fondness for someone by feeling this...

    I love the ebb and flow of it across the sharp

    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...

    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...

    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.
