    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...

    Men Are Different ... Maybe

    Emotional intimacy is incredibly important to

    me. For someone to connect with me on a deeper level and really understand who I am is more important to me than anything else. Emotional connections form the basis of strong and lasting relationships. Without it, I don't understand how a relationship can survive. I just wish I...

    I need people that understand me

    when I'm babbling on about stuff that to normal people, makes no sense. It would be nice if people could relate to me and just be there fit me. If only people could live up to expectations of others. But nobody can. So this is pointless to all of you. Unless you're the one who...

    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...

    It's enough to just get it from one person.

    And it's not permanent either, we have to work at it.

    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 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...

    I'm ready to release myself upon this world.

    I'm worried only a woman I love can stop me. But there are no women who love me to the extant of which I need.

    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...

    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.

    Is There Such A Thing?

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
