I Think A Connection Matters

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 638 People

    You ever just feel the bitterness of loneliness

    and just want to connect with someone? It feels so real right now. Just a touch, a sense of feeling, a smile, a hug, a moment together. Just anything to feel there and alive and with you. With somebody.

    It's very important, it's also a wonderful

    feeling when you feel truly connected to another human being.

    Without communication there's no relationship.

    Without respect there's no love. Without trust there's no reason to continue. The Love cycle so connection is really matters.

    Believe it or not, looks,

    a nice body, and money alone will not always seal the deal for some people. I've met people with all three and they just didn't do it for me. If I can't sit down and have a decent conversation with a person, joke around, and be myself then it doesn't matter what they look like...

    Have been feeling connected by reading many

    posts from people living in marriages similar to my own. At the same time I have been troubled by the pain and loneliness of so many young people. Seems the more ways we have available to connect, the greater the problem of de-sensitivity is becoming. I think I'll just blame it...

    Just done watching "her"

    for the second time. I was so captivated when I first saw it in the cinemas, that I got a copy on DVD. It's one of those movies that takes you places and in many ways relatable. For the second time, it made me feel those emotions that I thought I've forgotten about. It is...

    It sure does. And although over the past years

    I have been looking (in vain) for a connection as part of a romantic relationship, after getting burned yet again (roll eyes) I have decided to shift the focus. Connection is still very important, but what I really want to manifest this year and further into the future is just...

    I always thought that I was difficult person to

    read people that have known me all my life can't tell my emotions or how I'm feeling, then you come along and you can even tell how I am feeling by my message I type to you and all this after only 5 months we definitely have a connection on a level I didn't think existed.

    Connect Or Plugged In

    Real connections are not like an appliance u can plug in and use. Not achieved overnight nor fully explored in a lifetime. A simple connection though, one small common thread can be turned into a tapestry of magestic colors, swirls of patterns and crazy designs. But it's not done...

    Met someone online. We had a really great time

    talking to each other. It was as if we connected right away. From then on, we exchanged phone numbers. We texted a lot and talked over the phone a couple of times too. We were texting each other quite a lot. It felt really good. It's been quite a while since I've had this much...
