I was reading a book by some American dude in which he talks to Dalai Lama about some psychological topics like happiness, intimacy etc… So, one of the ideas was that there is no single definition for intimacy. Is it mental (feeling of unity)? Is it physical (touch)?
What makes a relationships intimate?
I have no idea. Not sure if anyone else does.
But there is something to the touch theory. It says that if you touch something you feel a connection to it. You see, I’m a “feel” (as opposed to see and hear) person. I prefer to smell rather than see, to touch rather than to hear.
So, if it is so, if the most intimate relationships are formed by touching…
I have the most intimate relationships with my laptop. I touch it in the morning when I wake up. I touch it when I’m working. I touch it when I’m having fun, when I’m talking to you.
And the funniest thing about it… It became inappropriate to touch things and other people. People look at you like “what a hell is he doing? Is he high, or a “special” one?!”
Way to go, XXI century… And then we wonder why we’re so lonely these days…
