Nowadays, when sex has become a cult, it is hard to believe that a relationship can exist without physical intimacy. Telling exactly what love is can be a daunting task. Many scholars believe that love is a state of euphoria that takes over a person in love. Love makes both men and women look at the world around them with different eyes. Nowadays, love has many different forms, and only those in love can determine what form of relationship satisfies them. Some prefer love without sex or, in other words, love from a distance. But does such love bring joy and happiness?
The age of technical progress has given man such a thing as the Internet. With its help, we communicate, but communication means friendship and such an interesting form of love as love from a distance or love without the presence of sex. Different generations have mixed views on this type of relationship. Some believe that this cannot be the case, but the fact that different people from different countries, as in everyday life, meet on the Internet and fall in love is a real reality of our time. Easy and liberating contact, which grows into trust, is able to give birth to feelings of love. Lovers come in contact for hours, even months and years. If it’s not love, then what?
LOVE BY PHONE
Another form of love without sex caused by modern scientific-technical progress via mobile phones. Conversation with a partner, his voice, the manner of conversation can also evoke feelings of love. Waiting for another call and conversation immerses the person in love in a pleasant euphoria. Practice shows that love without sex exists rather than does not exist. For example, an unmarried woman falls in love with a man during a vacation at a resort. The vacation ends, everyone goes to their side, but she can’t forget her loved one and the relationship continues, only now over the phone. And such cases are not uncommon. So distance is not an obstacle to love.
LOVE FROM DISTANCE
In addition to the above-mentioned forms of love, there are various life situations, when married couples also spend a long time without each other, for example, when going on a business trip or work in other countries. However, the lack of sex during this period does not prevent them from thinking about each other, constantly calling or corresponding. Their love lives in thoughts and memories. Many live in this regime for years, maintaining warm feelings and confidence in the other half. Some are satisfied with this form of love due to their temperament, others sublimate their sexual desire in art or hard physical/intellectual work. Some families break up but often love wins over all distances. It can be said with confidence that such families exist, so there is also love from a distance and without sex.
INTEGRATED SURRENDER OF INTIMITY
Some young people voluntarily give up sex, believing that intimate relationships interfere with spiritual development and getting to know the other person. There is even a whole movement in the United States that marries each other based on spiritual desire one after another.
IS A STABLE RELATIONSHIP POSSIBLE WITHOUT SEX?
Love – it is an emotional desire for the other person, spiritual closeness, compassion and respect for each other, a state of joy and happiness to contact the loved one, the desire to be with him every moment, to live with his worries and problems, the ability and desire to accept the other, as he is, with all his good qualities and also his shortcomings.
All the above forms can be called love, and yet love without sex is not complete – it lacks physical sensations. Therefore, emotions do not find a way out, and over time, the partner may experience a nervous breakdown, which inevitably provokes disputes.
This is how it is arranged in nature – love and sex are closely related to each other, and if there are no intimate contacts in the relationship, even the tiniest feelings can cool down over time.
