TRUE BONDING IN A RELATIONSHIP REQUIRES INTIMACY
The human need for touch begins from the moment we are born. It provides a sense of safety and comfort. It confirms the love that another person has for us. A simple hug can fill us with the confidence that we are not alone, that we are cared for. Throughout our lives, the need for touch never goes away, but it matures, and when we find ourselves without it, we can be left feeling bereft and empty. A relationship without intimacy is a cold and lonely place.
