What Really Made Me Vulnerable — 2 Comments

  1. I am so very there with you! I would love to have a passionate friendship that includes both a deep emotional connection and lots of physical (but not necessarily sexual) touch. But we are so conditioned to believe that only a romantic-coupled relationship provides those things that most people can’t adapt other types of relationships to meet their non-romantic emotional and physical needs. And I still struggle with feelings of not being good enough because a standard coupled relationship doesn’t work for me. I would love to change the culture too. I just don’t know how to do that yet.

    • Thanks for sharing, Amber! I guess one way of changing the culture is to talk about it, to raise consciousness. That can be frustratingly slow, though I am not sure if there’s a faster way…
