Instant intimacy is very often followed by desperate disillusion. – May Sarton
We can become so emotionally charged by a person that we allow ourselves to be intimate before we know who the person really is. When we give our bodies to another being, we are giving them a piece of our souls. We might want to take the time to find out if they deserve it. Sexual activity is not the only way to let someone know we like them. Sharing information, supporting each other’s goals, giving of our time and energy without expectations sends a much stronger message than sex. We must take time to know the other person; understand what they want, where they are going and figure out if we want to be in the same place. When we let down our hair too early in the game we apt to end up with a messed up head.
READ THIS, SAY THIS, MEAN THIS:
I will choose time over intimacy.
