I Need Emotional Intimacy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 29,332 People

    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.

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    I love telling someone about my day,

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...
