Back when I first started blogging I was not very committed but did enjoy joining in with TMI Tuesday, alongside two friends – Nero Black and Pete Syms – who I met whilst commenting on their TMI posts. The meme asked some interesting questions, so I thought over the next few weeks I may update a few posts to current and republish…
Love Emotion Trust on TMI Tuesday
1.What would you do to leave a great impression with a person on your first date?
It is so long since I had a first date – When I was younger it wasn’t so much wanting to leave a good impression but rather to get them under my spell if I liked them enough. I would dress to impress, but tailor that to what I anticipated they would want to see me wear. Apart from that I employed the transparent technique, being open and honest. Can be rare, so it usually seemed to work.
2.Do you usually follow your heart or your head?
I am not a romantic but always follow my heart or gut instinct, which filters through to my brain and says – love overcomes all – can’t say it’s always been the right thing to do. In hindsight, I do wish I had occasionally engaged my head in my relationship decisions.
3.If your significant other told you to jump off a tall cliff and told you that you’ll land safely because there’s a net you can’t see yet, would you blindly trust your s.o. and jump?
A metaphorical question – I’m not great on the old trust issue. I am slowly learning to trust my man but it’s been a long slow process for me. I am still at that stage where I wouldn’t be able to do as he requested without asking many questions first. Although, I like being told what to when engaging in a little sex action.
4.How do you support your significant other?
I try and make sure he has a release for his sexual desires. I listen to his many opinions, and I love his many faces.
5.What types of things or gestures/acts make you feel loved?
A touch, a look. Telling me something about yourself I didn’t know. Letting me know on a regular basis why you think I am special.
6.What types of things or gestures/acts make you feel respected?
Someone giving their time to me and perhaps listening to what I am saying. Really listening. You can’t buy time…
7.Can you have emotional intimacy without physical intimacy? Explain.
Yes, definitely. In fact I often separate the two, I enjoy the physical side of sex far more when emotional intimacy is removed. Sex for sex’s sake. It applies the other way round too – I need emotional intimacy and delight in it without any physical intimacy. Talking, listening, sharing intimate thoughts, ideas, memories and dreams. No need to touch.
Bonus: For Love Emotion Trust.
In 2016, what was your most conflicted emotional moment?
Having a physical accident whilst spending time at my dream vacation destination with my man. As a result, the joy of the sights and sounds of our holiday were marred by my sudden impairment.
In 2021, what was your most conflicted emotional moment?
Losing a dear home because it was making us sick. I knew it was right to leave, but I was awash with conflicting feelings because of all the happy memories.
