I Need Emotional Intimacy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 29,632 People

    Emotional intimacy IMO is sometimes more

    important than physical. If you don't have that spark or level of trust then not a lot will be accomplished

    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...

    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...

    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 am 19 years old and a girl.

    I've always been rather romantic and daydreamed a lot about love and love making. In my life though, I have only got physically intimate with two guys. With the second guy, it was an intense and passionate make-out session. The thing is, I hardly know that person and we haven't...

    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...

    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...

    a human's basic need is emotional intimacy.

    I don't have it cause i can't seem to trust anyone. When i try to trust, they break my trust and every incident pushes me further back into my hard shell. :(

    I crave emotional intimacy

    and niw I am nit afraid to admit this. For so long I was disconnected to my needs as I put the needs of others before mine ( therapy taught me that). Actually I am starved for true connection.

    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...

    Physical or even sexual intimacy tends to be

    so empty without at least some aspect of emotional intimacy thrown in the mix. Who wants to go through their life making shallow, pseudo intimate connections anyway? Life is way too short for anything that's not genuine or real.

    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.

    Emotional Intimacy

    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...

    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 would agree, I want someone to bond with.

    personally sex isn't my cup of tea and some may say oh maybe it's because there not doing right. well well I like to be have a connection with some one before I decide I'll lay down with them. and that's exactly why I've been practicing abstinence for the last 3 years.
