    All because physical connection is required for you to have an emotional connection doesn't meant that's true for everyone else; you're projecting (in my opinion).

    Never-mind - your definition of physical connection is very loose. I think that's where the confusion stems from. I don't really understand why you label this as a physical connection.

    Because my memory is physical until I die. Then it is uploaded into where-ever.

    Not necessarily. We are all collectively more psychopathic that we'd care to admit.

    Much less likely to be psychopathy and much more likely to be NPD.

    Less likely to be NPD and much more likely to be narcissistic traits.

    Traits fostered by the economy and society.

    No, I think we have a sustained unrecognized level of psychopathy as a collective society. Just look at the industrialization of first world countries and the impact on 2nd and 3rd world countries. I am a huge proponent of economic prosperity but the cost is human life by the score. That's not narcissism. That's psychopath - complete and utter disregard for human life.

    Speak for yourself. It's disturbing that you believe whatever ill-conceived conception in your mind, is objectively real. Disorders such as ASPD and NPD are forms of dysfunctional defense strategies and coping tools. Disorders are collections of healthy traits but to the magnitude of the inability to cope. What you're doing is disregarding magnitude, in order to draw parallels. This is a logical fallacy.

    Anyways, it's been a displeasure so I'm out.

    So when you eat food that was grown with fertilizer that destroys the earth and is made by giant plants that are controlled by the military industrial complex, which drone and bomb Arab nations to keep them divided so that they do not interfere with foreign interests...all that is an illusion? You may be as confused as the girl in my avatar picture.

    Oh so this must have been that guy who wanted to fuck me but I told him he reminded me of my brother.

    Neato.

    He seems advanced at building emotional intimacy.

    He got all salty when I said that. There, there.

    Interesting question. For me, an ideal connection involves a depth of emotional intimacy that is hard to describe. It is physical, intellectual and more deep on a level of meeting each other's needs. I really cannot explain it. It's a hole in your life that's filled. Engaging; affectionate, passionate, cooperative would be ideal.

    @INTerran, since I haven't read your prior posts, are the two of you platonic friends or FWBs?[/QUOTE]

    We had been platonic friends for several years, spending time with each other individually and with my brother, his girlfriend, most weekends. Right after Christmas he and I decided to see if a more than platonic relationship would work for us. We mutually decided to not broadcast the relationship outward to family and friends because of several factors. I want to continue growing with him and deepening our bond. But it's sometimes hard to know the best way to do that. I don't have super strong emotional intelligence...and neither does he.
