    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 can't stand this any longer.

    ..we had it all, we had emotional intimacy even in tough times....and she just dumped me out of the blue! Now I feel myself longing for her, for what we had, even searching for her.......this life sucks. I can't live like this. I can't live without it!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Do you ever get lonely?

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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?

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 do. But without gender basis.

    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 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.

    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...
