    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.

    I feel like you are in love with me,

    but am trying to 'unlove' me. It's like you don't even want to be in love with me, but you just can't help it so you put up with me just for now. When you said you didn't care about when we have a baby, and whether we have a baby or not, I was devastated. A baby, is a love...

    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 matters a lot to me.

    I don't like when guys ask me out when they know nothing about me. I don't want to be someone's girlfriend just because they don't want to be alone. I want to be someone's girlfriend because they like me as a person and actually give a damn about me.

    A connection isn't for the sake of your own

    pleasure. It's meant for the two of you in your own special relationship.

    Is there a trick to chemistry?

    I have chemistry with so few yet I know more married people than single people. Are they luckier or am I missing something here?

    There's no relief from the torture of a heart

    ripped to shreds. A desire to trust and be safely vulnerable puts you in a position to be harmed and only the sincere desire to love and be loved can cause a person to be so foolish. So trusting. To give yourself totally and unequivocally to someone, not even allowing the...

    There is something humbling about someone

    completely trusting you, regardless of the fact that you have not known each other for long. It makes you feel like you've been deemed worthy of a precious gift. It makes you feel treasured. And it makes you want to reciprocate. Trust is a powerful thing - it can make even...

    Human connection it's the reason

    why we are all here. No matter how successful we are. How many degrees we may obtain. The cars and house, a fat bank account. Without human connection. Its all null and void. Humanity without connection. Is excruciating.

    No chemistry = no affinity = no

    relationship It's quite simple, but only if you make it that way. It may not be all black and white, but it's always either yes or no. You either have something with them or don't.

    Can we humans override our hard wired chemistry

    that makes us feel incomplete when we love a member of the opposite sex but for whatever reason are unable to act upon such feelings? I'm sure each of us at some time has loved or been in love with someone we are unable to physically be with. I think perhaps such a barrier...

    Something deep and meaningful.

    The kind that is hard to describe to others who may not have ever felt it, or who may not be open to something so powerful, and in turn, leaves you vulnerable. These kind of connections I believe are what matter most in life. They can be life changing in a positive or negative...

    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.

    just having mind set on same subjects, or sharing same nice feelings can lead to a wonderful sincere understanding...it takes two and both fully concentrated on each other..

    I miss having a deep connection with someone.

    Someone who checks in daily to say hello and they're thinking of you; someone who can "feel" when something is wrong or "feel" you thinking of them. I'm hoping this is the year! It will be a year of change I feel it :) and it's all good!
