Everyone has needs, the need to connect with someone is a happy, healthy and natural flow of bonding. Sometimes we just need a friend, a shoulder to lean on, someone to talk to or share happiness or disruptions. Friendships divert the need for romantic companionships or post breakup worries by filling in for the empty space.
Relationships require bonding. Love, life and relationships must be kept at a comfortable balance of giving and forgiving in order for a relationship to last. Love is an attraction filling the heart with contentment.True Love is unconditional and requires the ability to be forgiving. This powerful bond sets in like an emotional high that requires patience, trust and respect. One sided love is off balance on connection and intimacy and enevitably assures failure.
Connections are made between partners to improve and share the intimacy of a relationship. Change, circumstances, lack of knowledge or interest may evolve over time to disrupt the intimacy in a relationship. When needs are not being met, the tendency is to look elsewhere for ways of meeting those needs and what is left is wishful, hoping desires.
