    You may be able coast along with out a real

    strong emotional connection, but there is nothing like emotional intimacy. It is sad when people never reach it.

    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...

    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...

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

    An emotional connection to me is that special something that allows you to connect with  a person, where you are instantly comfortable.. The words and ideas flow quickly and easily.  There is no stumbling about trying to come up with something to say.  Your on the same page...

    I did not think you could have an emotional

    connection without touching that person but I have one and with a very special person. Quite unique I shall say because it is our connection that binds us emotionally spiritually and at times physically.. Further exploration yes and very worth pursuing further happiness...

    I am definitely on a different path then the

    Emotional connection is great

    because we both have experienced the same things. And we both know exactly what they would possibly be thinking on this topic.

    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.

    It's hard to open up to people

    if you don't feel a connection. There are very few people who make conversations comfortable without being awkward. I'm a very empathic person, so I feel vibes stronger than others. And if there's not another empathic person to share things with, it's harder to connect on an...

    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...

    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.

    When she first walked into the restaurant

    and started talking to me, I felt like there was something between us. There was an impulse that we were both following. So that gave me the right to chime in and continue talking to her. Otherwise, I never would've felt that that I had the right to talk to her or say anything...

    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...

    our partners in a relationship. It comes from love, love of our friends,family, whoever touches your soul. This is beautiful... But also mean any of them can hurt your feelings deeply. We are used to hide, don't share what we think and feel... that's a mess! I care deeply at any...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I think it exists. I had one once,

    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...
