I Need Emotional Intimacy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 29,306 People

    Is There Such A Thing?

    It's amazing as I read through the stories here just how much we all resonate with one another. It is difficult to share how I feel without repeating what many of you have already said. My husband has pretty much been my best friend for the last 25 years, but something has...

    Emotional Intimacy

    Sex is the easy part. Even if alone you can get yourself through and have some physical release. No problem. Its the emotional intimacy that cant be filled alone. Wanting the connection of another. Feeling what you feel they react and supply you with what's needed. Maybe a hug...

    Sex without an emotional connection is just

    fornication. Emotional intimacy means that you see each other on a soul level, that you communicate at a heart level and that you allow love to lead - not lust which is trying to get something but the love that gives of your heart.

    Don't fret about the future of the relationship,

    as this will make matters muddy between you, just enjoy what you have today. Tomorrow will take care of itself.

    I'm at the point in my marriage

    that I don't really care what happens now,.. If she said it was over and I'm seeing someone else,.. It would probably put a smile on my face,.. And I would send a sympathy card to her new lover. I just walk around feeling like an empty shell of what I used to be... No love...

    Wow! I came to EP to find freedom.

    To just share myself with people. Not to care for anyone let alone care romantically for anyone. Now, I care for both types and have miss understood each, and actually have a hurt heart. A dream created and deflated like a popped ballon.

    I'm not good at showing most emotions.

    I never have been. I have a family where I logically know there's love, and love is shown in its own way...but there's no emotional intimacy. I've never been close with anyone in that way. I think I could do it, because I crave it so much, but no one has ever gotten that close...

    I miss those Saturdays in spring

    when I woke up in the arms of my ex girlfriend, and the first thing I saw was her kind smile. And then we stayed in bed for hours cuddling and kissing each other. Now those days are gone and I feel so empty... abandoned and forgotten. God I miss her.

    I have always had more women friends

    than men. I know I sometimes cringe when I see another guy say that. That it's a manipulative ploy. But it's true in my case. The common denominator with these friends is humor and warmth. Some are very attractive and I won't deny a little fantasy goes on about them. I...

    You won’t remember me. I have become another one of them now, the forgotten girl. You won’t remember my name but you once knew it well; you once thought it was fragrant in your ear like nothing else before.  You won’t remember my face although you once said you memorized...

    hearing about theirs, doing fun things together, talking about problems or issues... And just being able to be my full self with someone. It's a very interesting connection.

    Deeper Connection...

    Intimacy is like a craving when you have walls so high and so strong they cannot be broken. It is like someone has put the one thing you want behind impenetrable glass and no matter how hard you try, it stays forever out of your reach. A lot of people think that sex is the most...

    So I met this guy on EP awhile ago.

    He was a bit of an insomniac like me. He was married, loved music, and was really lonely. We kept each other company and talked about crazy things like running away and starting a band. I didn't know him very long, but when he left...I actually cried a little. I still miss him...

    I struggle with getting vulnerable.

    It's not something that I do easily or often. I find it easier to get online and chat.. I may even truly reveal myself a bit more easily. This medium or forum feels safe... I dont know why, but it does. Sadly everyone that approaches me, at least thus far, has only attempted a...

    emotional bonds in sex. I mean I know this is kinda weird for a guy to say but it's true, I can't have sex with a girl and feel nothing for her. I can't even kiss a girl and feel nothing. Sometimes I wish I was a simpler man, where sex could mean nothing. It sure would make...

    I just want someone to hold.

    A guy who can fulfill my emotional needs and be there for me. So many times we think of intimacy as sex but it's not it's knowing and connecting with the person on an emotional level deeper than anything else. I want to be known intimately by a man who will love me for me, and I...

    Emotions are so overrated by underestimations.

    People are afraid to create bonds because we fear what is to happen. We shouldn't let our fears dictate our actions. For once, I wish someone would approach me with the intentions of staying for more than a month. Lay with me, let us speak like young children. Ramble on to me...

    I tend to need a degree of emotional intimacy

    even in my friendships to feel any sort of connection. Otherwise, people tend to feel really distant to me, even if I see them often.

    I do. But without gender basis.

    And with genders basis. What is wrong with women and men always thinking its sexual. Not any other type of love or caring? Why should I keep trying to be real but be considered flirting with the opposite sex? I get along best with women. I love women but I'm only IN love...

    Married Without Intimacy Is Worse Than Being Single

    I'll say it right up front. I'm codependent.  I'm a romantic. I feel the best way to enjoy something is to share it with someone else.  Emotional intimacy is like oxygen for me. Some people might see this as a personality flaw or weakness. (especially in a guy) I don't. I know...
