Think back to the times you felt in love. Aside from chemistry, what was it that drew you to the other person? Usually, my clients say things like:
- We talked for hours on our first date.
- We felt an immediate connection with each other, like we’ve always known each other.
- At the beginning of our relationship, we could talk about everything.
These people felt emotionally connected with each other. Love flourished because of their emotional intimacy. If they hadn’t felt this emotional connection and intimacy, they likely wouldn’t have fallen in love with each other. Even if they were physically attracted, this likely wouldn’t have lasted long without the emotional intimacy.
