How To Emotionally Connect With Someone
– What does love mean to you? – So. I like to think of myself as an emotional slut. – I want to be emotionally penetrated, before anything else. Physically connecting
with someone is great. However, I need the foundation
of a human connection before anything else. By emotional slut, I mean I am pro casual, emotional intimacy. A lot of times, it’s almost discouraged to be open and vulnerable with people. Especially in more casual encounters. There’s this fear that, if you’re soft and open, and vulnerable and loving, that that’s met with rejection. Vulnerability, to me, is what turns me on. To me, I wanna hear someone talk about all of the experiences that make them the person they are. The things that make them happy, sad, the things that trigger them. Just all of the things that make them who they are. You can find those intense, emotional connections with people in every moment. So you don’t have to think of a future. The fear of future shouldn’t stop you from completely letting go, and opening up, and being loving with people. I want to find those really intense, emotional, intimate connections with everyone. My truest essence is probably my ability to be childlike, connecting to my inner child. A lot of times we only
get those experiences with people that we’re dating. And we’re dating for a long time. And, even still, some people don’t completely open up and let go. I want to find those experiences with my friends, with my lovers, whether they’re casual or long term. I think that, on a certain level, everyone craves that emotional intimacy. I think that’s really
what everyone is after. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I think we should all emotionally connect more than just physically. Because physically is fun, but when it comes to emotional intimacy, I think everyone should be an emotional slut. – Ding.
