This type of connection is the glue that holds your relationship together. But not every couple has it. Do you? Here are the s. No matter how far your relationship evolves, the foundation of the relationship is a strong friendship. You respect each other in a human way.
You value their thoughts. You want their input, and you enjoy their company. Emotional connection is all about developing a shared experience of the world: going on trips, working on projects, partaking in hobbies, finding common ground you can refer back to for years. The more history you have, the more likely you are to have a deep emotional connection. You should be able to anticipate hearing from them. They should respond quickly to your contacts.
2. communicate the issue
You should talk regularly and see each other often. You should fall into a normal cadence of when to expect date nights or phone calls; you often develop default plans and warn each other if something changes out of respect. There's peace and solace in something as simple as that.
