    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...

    Men Are Different ... Maybe

    This completely empty marriage has left me

    completely empty. I've been stuck in a kind of numb place for a whole now. I don't feel happy or sad just here. My husband and don't even talk to each other. We drive in the car somewhere and are silent almost the whole time. We eat dinner together and say nothing to each...

    Tonight I realized I haven't had human contact

    in a long time, and I don't mean anything sexual though I admit it's been awhile but simple human contact. No handshakes or hugs or even a pat on the back, I really hadn't noticed till tonight. I hadn't noticed how much I could miss it, how important it is until tonight. Life is...

    What I Yearn For

    I am at the stage in my life where it is important for me to experience emotional intimacy once again. I want to be comfortable sharing myself with that one special person without the fear of repercussions. I would love for us to share our secrets, talk about our feelings, sex...

    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...

    I used to think emotional

    and physical intimacy were two parts of the same thing. I know now that I was wrong. Being single I've learned that I need emotional intimacy more than physical intimacy at this point in my life.

    My friend killed herself on Christmas Eve.

    I'm straight, but at times I felt like I was in love with her. Maybe it was because she a lesbian and she was in love with me, but she made me feel normal - Happy, loved, desired, cherished. Things I've never felt from anyone. At times I wanted her to find the perfect girl, but...

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

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

    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...

    The Forgotten Girl

    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...

    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.

    Is There Such A Thing?

    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...

    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 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.

    It's such a strange struggle

    when you have all the physical intimacy you could need, but when it comes to emotions, there's nothing. I'm always told that I'm not alone and that he's right there and yet every time I have real need for him, he's never around. Somehow I'm always left to deal with or hide or...

    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...

    I am married but there is nothin there.

    I do what he tells me to do. I live the way he wants me to live. I want someone who will actually talk to me and want to know me. I want to know them. I want to listen and here them out. I am here with 3 kids, a husband, a dog, a guinea pig, and a rabbit and I am lonely.

    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...

    Do you ever feel that no one can understand you? That is how I am feeling right now. You tell me you trust me but yet you shut me down.
