Emotional Intimacy Is A MustEmotional intimacy is important to me more so than physical intimacy. I can't go forward with anything physical if the emotional part is lacking or not fulfilled. I guess it has to do with being a woman and that I am also wired that way. This is one of the reasons why one night stands won't work for me. I need more than just physical contact and emotional intimacy can only be achieved over time with of course, love and trust and nothing less.
A deep respect and understanding for each other only makes the physical part all worth the while. Some people jump right into physical intimacy and later wonder why they are left feeling so empty. For me, emotional intimacy is a must.
