I want to focus on how self-confidence and body image, in relation to weight, can keep you from experiencing a deeper, more fulfilling intimacy in your personal relationships. The Link Between Self-confidence and Intimacy I work in a bariatric clinic, so I see a lot of people transition from being affected by severe obesity, or obesity, to reaching a healthier, more active weight. by Jessie Mae Estrada, LPC, NCC Summer 2011 To view a PDF version of this article, click here. What is Intimacy?

Intimacy is the feeling of belonging with someone and having a deep personal connection with them. To be truly intimate, you experience a transparency in the relationship, a feeling of knowing and being known.Read Article. Food may come to eclipse relationships, sex, intimacy, physical activity, connection with others, and even a sense of purpose in life.

When we depend on food to provide us with the majority of the pleasure we experience in life, the enjoyment of food becomes so heightened that we often find ourselves overeating. Weight Loss. Weight Loss See all Weight Loss. “When you share this information in a structured way, the intimacy and connection deepens the intimacy of the sex that comes after.” When you’re ready to begin, have the penetrating partner (aka the big spoon) ease inside the receiving partner, either vaginally or anally. From here, get handsy!

Sexless Relationships A sexless relationship can be painful but not necessarily hopeless. Posted Jan 23, 2014. Couples often ask what it takes to build and maintain happiness—whether in daily life together or for the long term. A new study sheds light on that.

Its findings reveal one thing that happy. The Connection Between Psoriasis and the Heart one study showed losing weight reduces the severity When it comes to the challenges of relationships — and intimacy in particular — this. “Trust and intimacy are in tandem and you can’t have one without the other.

These couples have worked through any trust issues, so this is one less barrier to their intimacy.” 5 They don’t rely on.

  • For me the opposite happened. I’ve just ended a relationship with a woman after 2 years. We wouldn’t connect emotionally at all. Yes, she never said no to sex and she was extremely beautiful, but after two years of that, it had to end. It really seems to be enough, but it gets frustrating after a while.

  • This talk struck me. Very educational it is, even for an old man with more than 30 years of marriage. Having a kid in my case was the trigger of sexless in bed unfortunately. Thanks, because it makes me one of many. Should I worry about my kid on the same subject?

  • So is it bad that I’ve been dating someone for almost 7 months and haven’t experienced any closeness? Maybe 2 hugs and that’s been it. One of those I had to ask for a hug when I was crying

  • she is the one I have taken all of her advice, I have jumped
    on of my comfortnow I am on a target to make a millon i have even created
    a youtube channelto fellow my progress my first vlog is due in 45 minutes
    I would love some support feedback please hit subcribe

  • I have been with the same woman for almost 15 years and its gotten to the point she only wants back messages. She not only has become totally asexual but totally unaffectionate. We are both in our sixties now so it could be biological for her I am not sure. I have ask her to show complete frankness and be fair and honest about it but she would rather play a very cruel game with me. I should add this, I say she’s completely unaffectionate because even the back messages are all give and no take. I have probably given her at least one hundred back messages and she hasn’t given me one. I mean not one. No she’s not seeing other men I know that with 100 % certainty but I have begun wanting an opportunity to meet another woman.

  • After 39 years of marriage, I find myself to have a strong desire for my wife. I find her far more interesting at 58 than I found her to be at 19 when we first met. At times it is a struggle to connect just due to so many things going on, but it is all about the commitment. As the husband, I cook, clean, shop and take care of the house. The fact that my wife is not exhausted all the time really helps. In the long run it is a partnership with give and take.

  • Often enough women do the lion share of the house work 06:25 simply because it has to be done in exactly the manner they insist on it to be done.

  • Thank God at least I found someone to talk about parenting. I was thinking I am the only one who consider the role of mother is the most important thing in one’s life.Right parenting is the biggest important thing in the world but that is taken so for granted. Your parents can make you win or can make you lose especially mothers. I wish I could establish some institution for mothers training one day because the root of every problem and the route to every success is the lap of mother.

  • Change the laws surrounding divorce and allow people to move on without financial ruin or unfair financial burden. No person should have to suffer because their partner has denied them for so long. Time is not something we get back. This will be a huge step to achieving true equality.

  • I was in sexless marriage. 16 years married and now I get 3-8 times a month. I changed myself with the help of the good men project. What difference the last 2 years has been.

  • AJ I love when you ramble at the end ❤ Your willingness to be real and human on camera is so reassuring to me as a fellow video maker.

  • Court not death by your erring way of life,
    nor draw to yourselves destruction
    by the works of your hands.
    Because God did not make death.
    Nor does he rejoice in the destruction of the living.
    For he fashioned all things
    that they might have being:
    and the creatures of the world are wholesome,
    And there is not a destructive drug among them
    nor any domain of the nether world on the earth,
    For justice is undying.
    It was the wicked
    who with hands and words invited death,
    considered it a friend,
    and pined for it,
    and made a covenant with it,
    Because they deserve to be in its possession,
    they who said among themselves,
    thinking not aright:
    Brief and troublous is our lifetime;
    neither is there any remedy for man’s dying,
    nor is anyone known
    to have come back from the neither world.
    For haphazard were we born,
    and hereafter we shall be
    as though we had not been;
    Because the breath in our nostrils
    is a smoke and reason is a spark
    at the beating of our hearts,
    And when this is quenched,
    our body will be ashes
    and our spirit will be poured abroad like unresisting air,
    Even our name will be forgotten in time,
    and no one will recall our deeds.
    So our life will pass away
    like the traces of a cloud,
    and will be dispersed like a mist
    pursued by the sun’s rays and overpowered by its heat.
    For our lifetime is the passing of a shadow:
    and our dying cannot be deferred
    because it is fixed with a seal;
    and no one returns.
    Come, therefore, let us enjoy the good things that are real,
    and use the freshness of creation avidly.
    Let us have our fill of costly wine and perfumes,
    and let no springtime blossom pass us by;
    let us crown ourselves with rosebuds ere they wither.
    Let no meadow be free from our wantonness,
    everywhere let us leave tokens of our rejoicing,
    for this our portion is, and this our lot.
    Let us oppress the needy just man;
    let us neither spare the widow
    nor revere the old man for his hair grown white with time.
    But let our strength be our norm of justice;
    for weakness proves itself useless.
    Jesus O Savior
    I know not if you are real
    Come live in me..
    Save me
    Amen and Amen

    Revelations 22:17

    receive the gift

  • I love my hubby more and more every day (together 21 years). Not quite as active as back in the day but it’s less important than all the other stuff.

  • I snore, never been a problem with another women but for my wife it’s too much! We’ve lived together for only 6 months and we’ve been sleeping separately for 80% of that time, she’s OK with it, even wants separate rooms when we move! It kills my motivation to come on to her because she not very affectionate to begin with. Like the women in the video said, I would NOT have gotten married if I knew this would be the case. Its like the only thing I get out of the marriage is the opportunity to care for her and sacrifice for her with nothing in return

  • Beautiful talk, but not entirely true. It can be found in another person, but it must be consciously discussed. Healing must be sought together. Saying that you absolutely can’t get it from another person actually comes from the same childhood trauma: from a deep distrust in other humans. Teal Swan explains this in great detail in her work.

  • Don’t be nervous ���� I care about you, don’t let your emotions drive you �������� you sing I’ll sing we sing together,A#440. Standard tuning, keep it simple.

  • In regards to the part about loneliness: My advice: learn to play a musical instrument, especially guitar or piano. You then always have something fun to do, something you can do by yourself, something fun that will occupy you and keep you from feeling bored or lonely or thinking about any problems you may have. Playing guitar kept me from committing suicide when my wife of 12 years, whom I loved very much, left me for another man.
    I am retired now and am never bored. There are hundreds of songs I love that I want to learn on guitar. I know so many retired people who are constantly traveling just because they have nothing else to do. They are bored out of their minds these days due to the COVID-19 preventing them from traveling. I actually feel sorry for people who don’t know how to play a musical instrument. It is, in my opinion, the best hobby you can have. And it’s a LOT cheaper and safer that traveling! Rock on!
    P.S. Learn the ukulele It’s hard to be lonely or depressed when you’re strumming a uke. Steve Martin said the same thing about the banjo

  • I feel emotionally attached to my partner but I just don’t feel a sexual one, we have been together a little over 2 years, I think he is handsome but I just don’t feel anything sexual and I don’t know what to do!

  • My gf is in Georgia and I am in Kansas. We met online. I am 67 she won’t say but guess she is about 55. She is all excited about sex and says she can revive my partial ED situation. Her exhusband cheated on her so she gave him the boot. My 20+ year marriage is at an end because she is receiving another donor kidney and I believe she does not want me to waste away with her, just go out have fun and enjoy life and sex because almost 14 years ago she had 3 woman parts operations and there is no sex between us and hasbeen none in the past 14 years. She said go find a girlfriend. I did but she was beautiful redhead, blue eyes, only 29 years old…she kept making rude remarks about her being to young…over a dozen remarks…so This girl in Georgia found me and Karen, my wife, said yes you should marry this one, I like her, she is pretty, she is more your age……..so anyway, Faith in Georgia and I write almost nightly and on weekends, she knows about Karen, my situation, and Karens situation and still wants to be with me. We meet for a week at her place on 03SEP20, then I fly back home to Kansas. Long story, but Karen gets her kidney in January 2021 and has to be in isolation for 90 days that is when I will fly to Faith and help her drive here. We will live in my house till Karen is cleared by the hospital to live on her own thenFaith and I will move into Senior Care Independent Care and she will be my caregiver and live with me in my apartment. As soon as Karen gets her health insurance then we will divorce and Faith and I should get married. I am faithful, caring, a decent loyal catch, everything Faith needs, and She is beautiful redhead, blue eyes sings, in the choir, loves God, goes to church, what I want, also faithful..

  • This is an awesome video. As a Relationship Coach this is giving me more of what I need to help move couples in a better direction. I knew it was the self, but the extent of it…I understand better now. Thank you Dr.

  • Pure Entertainment! Like it or not A.J. is the consummate salesperson. Presentation, delivery, humor and practical advice for us dudes in our 50-60″s’. Sad but true the volume of self help YouTube videos on the subject of dating/understanding women is tragically sad. I was born during the “Women’s Lib ” movement. Men became “MCP”, male chauvinistic pigs, and fast forward 50 years where we are just “Pigs”. Only when you are in your 60″s like me do you have the perspective that you become the enemy of the last 50 years and you don’t really understand why?!

  • Kudos for the Video clip! Apologies for the intrusion, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you heard about Millawdon Varied Nights Trick (should be on google have a look)? It is a great exclusive guide for learning intimate questions to make your relationship stronger without the normal expense. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my BF after many years got astronomical success with it.

  • I encountered this talk a moment ago (30 minutes ago). I am listening to this talk right now and I find it very helpful for all of humanity in today society regarding finding your authentic self through relationships.

    Tôi gặp phải cuộc nói chuyện này một lúc trước (30 phút trước). Tôi đang nghe bài nói chuyện này ngay bây giờ và tôi thấy nó rất hữu ích cho toàn thể nhân loại trong xã hội ngày nay về việc tìm ra con người đích thực của bạn thông qua các mối quan hệ.

  • I’m a 23 yo guy who has never been in a relationship.. watching this video opened my mind to things I’ve never knew how they’d be processed n things i’ve never thought of.. this is teasing like crazy tbh lol but i’m grateful n thankful that I’ve watched it tho

  • Im starting to understand the difference. Im watching you think about what your saying and you look to your left, Why are things so complicated! Im a leo and I know what I want to me life can be much more simple so we dont have this fuzz, thats what Im calling it

  • Damn, this girl can preach!!! One of the best speeches I’ve heard in awhile! We need more of this type of message sent out into that world for people to hear ��

  • Yes Anna at least one of us gets this video! Went through this experience last year with someone who wasn’t ready for an emotional and sexual relationship. Unfortunately it broke my heart, but in her defense it was just as much my fault. Thanks for your videos, hoping to be a more insightful man going forward.
    PS. After 42 years with my late wife, it’s been tough find a true connection. But hey, I won’t give up, God’s plans are for good. ☝️��

  • Hello Anna, thanks for sharing things. I just want to clear something, i was interacted with once of my team mate, we were talking for quite a lot of time but unable to meet yet due to Pandemic situation. I was really confused with her words some time I realized that she kept me in friend zone but some times not. Even though we are not sharping any intimate things I just feel that we both hav a emotional connection
    Please clarify my confusion. This is am feeling becoz am needy or emotionally not strong

  • The hardest thing you will ever do in life is get /stay married!
    BTW Dr.Shefali is so feminine and gorgeous. THANKS for the knowledge and positivity

  • Naw…Sex isn’t my primary attractive marker actually. Even if she’s appealing that doesn’t mean I care to have Sex with her. There are more Complexities to this for Men actually.

  • I fell in love with a lady that was married but was planning to come for divorce. She started out as a friend and salsa partner and I fell in love. We actually ended up moving in together. She introduced me to her friends and family and they knew I was the other guy. However they all understood that her marriage was basically over. Yes the legal proceedings needed to happen. We ended up having a really bad argument one morning and I asked her to leave even though deep down I really didn’t want her to leave. She did exactly what I asked. She put me on block and has not spoken to me since. Five days lAfter our break up, I was told that she was already out having dinner with another man and even making out with him in a public place.Her friend was kind enough to send me a picture of them. This was extremely painful because I feel that we could’ve repaired any kind of disagreement we had. Even though she expressed and showed her love for me, her immediate actions make me feel otherwise. Did she really love me?

  • Be kind to yourself when taking this in. Do not be so hard one yourself. Do not judge urself, love yourself. I am leaving divorcing my husband, I will never say it was right for him to abuse me, it was not my fault. But moving forward I am filling up my soul full of love and light, you are I am enough. Your happy ending rely’s in you:). Mother urself, love u and give urself allowance to be loved, love that inner child. We are all a work in progress. God Bless you

  • “Are you guys getting this?” Well…what I got was the odd sense from this that getting sex is easyeven automaticit’s the bonding part that’s hard. I’ve always found it’s more the other way around. I get life stories, trust & verbal intimacy with little thought, often unbidden. It’s the sex part that’s the trick. I think I need to return to your “out of the friendzone” tips.

  • This video is a gem.
    Addition. You have to know what you value, before to know if someone is a potential life partner. You shouldn’t hope for a relationship to give you the values you need in your life. Not in a fundamental sense. The relationship is an effect, not a cause.

  • I have A D D or ADHD which ever but it limits things I have what called sultry eyes cops call it stoner before I even knew what that was don’t judge a book by it’s cover girls would say you have such sexy kissable lips think of those lips from the stones I have memory issues think stoner another label so if a girl talks to me about feelings I forget what she said the next day and get labeled again I don’t care which leads to I really don’t so when I just get to a point where I can let my guard down and open my inner most feelings and relax again the ADD she leaves this can sometimes take years all the time I am sizing her up and building a dossier of her life so if your a lie it will come out most the time girls or women tend to put me on top a mountain as I am the greatest thing but I just say nothing and wait for reality to set in. I had some really good relationships but none lasting a few follow me around after moving on to a new girl thats just creepy girls who wanted sex after we broke up I called using her faculty’s she always coming to me for sex when she needed it as she had a much lower sex drive than me. girls always say I’m a good listener but for the life of me I don’t know why cause I’m sure to forget the whole experience. Maybe cause I don’t kiss and tell is the best term I can come up with cause I forgot it. I love pictures and video cause I can recall forgotten memories thats really sad part I wish I could fix. maybe some day they will come up with a memory chip for my brain. I have dated so many women I hope some of them don’t come back that I forgot about.

  • Thank you Dr. Sefali for sharing your powerful eyeopening wise words!
    “We are just children, maskering as adults” this is what I always say… especial if it comes to small children… we have not the right to put us higher to make them down. Every one have the right of respect even a small child.
    It have all to do with ourselves how we treat others, and how we see them.
    Every Situation will tell us something… listen carefully with your heart ❤
    To be in contact with yourself, to fill up yourself is the best feeling what you can ever have….
    The moment you realise that you brought yourself in a situation and that you have the responsibility for yourself, thats the moment you leave the victom role and come back to yourself. This is so powerful to be awaken to be aware, its a big understandig what change your life. The best experiance i every made!
    “How are you beeing you ” ��
    24:43… oh yes…

  • Answer me wingmam.There is one married women, attracted towards me, and I also attracted towards her.And the lady sharing me her little bit of issues regarding her married life.what should I do, and,how to understand her words, that she is trying to say?

  • Hi. I’m in love with what feels like my soul mate but I have serious attraction issues with her. We don’t really have much of a sex life but the emotional connection is unreal. It’s been a struggle for both of us. We want to make it work because we would like to have kids together. What would you suggest we do? I would welcome any advice. Thanks.

  • I don’t understand why MANY American women online will not even meet up with a guy to determine if there IS any chemistry-and I am NOT looking for a hookup, but a LTR! For the record, I am in better than average shape for 59, have a good paying skilled labor job and am very Metrosexual, according to one ex. Then again, I was spoiled, having seen the world and being stationed in Japan for two years. American women are clueless as to how well they have it over here! To put it in perspective, my brilliant, tenured and published PhD. sister would rather hang out with guys and is the furthest thing from a girly girl that one can imagine. She has dual citizenship and teaches at U of Windsor in Ontario-John in Texas

  • Wow. You can tell by some things you say how feminism has really damaged relationships. It’s funny cause its women that have done that, NOT men.

  • Okay, so all you are saying is that emotional connection means having a mirror in front of you. (The same interests, principles, compatibility etc). Isn t this just a masked narcissistic trait? Not only a desire to be ‘duplicated’, to be confirmed? I think otherwise. Emotional connection is when you meet a person not very like you and when she starts being vulnerable, telling you different experiences, you get to understand them deeply and activate that empathy. And if you start having feelings and appreciate her way of being, just how she is, that s true, pure emotion. When i love smth at someone that sounds like me, my level of understanding is not too expansed. More like adoring the idea of talking to myself. I think this is a bit superficial. Back in the day, the person i loved most was utterly different from me. Terrible. Well, we re just human beings, after all. Important is to share love.

  • I hate her knocking “feminism”. Like women being able to work in whatever profession, earn equal pay and have control of their reproduction is a bad thing. It makes me wonder if she would have voted for Trumpa guy who braged about assaulting womenif she were a US citizen. Long live feminism.

  • Women aren’t better at cheating men, the other guy doesn’t cause trouble like the other women does and men don’t snoop as much as their wives

  • ‘Tell me about it in the comments’…well how’s this… I’ve been interested in a woman for some years. At lunch she said our relationship can never be ‘romantic.’, only ever a friendship. I dated other women and whilst stating she is pleased I am looking for love, she has become a great deal more friendly recently through including me in her private world, even inviting me to her home to enjoy shared interests in classic architecture. Always kept me very much at arms length. In short all the bonding and vulnerability aspects of an emotional connection mentioned above are happening. I don’t understand how a relationship goes from the ‘we are only friends’ to telling me private details about life crises. I’m wondering if I’ve done such a good job of being a genuine, caring man she finally realises,( even though I am older than her ) she could do worse then begin a loving partnership.

  • I liked the video @Wingmam.

    Just a note….that the difference between “sexual & emotional” can be significant. I found out that in my case where it started out as a…sexual….soon turned into an emotional, where there was discussions about the future, inviting you/me into their circle of friends/family, etc. I have a couple of friends who also experienced that also.

    Woman are naturally built different that way….once there’s been several or more sexual encounters there’s usually that emotional connection to follow. Not always….but in most cases afaic.

  • HELP. I’m talking to a girl right now but I feel like our relationship is something I’ve never seen anyone address. We were friends for about a year before we started talking, and since we’ve been talking shes opened up a lot and we’ve gotten very close. She also demonstrates a lot of green flags and is a genuinely good person. She told me yesterday that she knows she has feelings for me, but also told me that she is scared to get into a relationship because she was badly hurt by her past one. I dont know if I should continue talking to her in the hopes that she changes or if I should move on because it may not go anywhere. Any advice on what to do would be appreciated

  • I can totally relate to what you say about sex sometimes being the least intimate thing you could do. At the moment, I have really intimate moments when I do my exercise routine with my boyfriend each morning -when I went away for 3 weeks, we continued our exercise routine with each other over Skype, and kept that intimacy -felt really lovely. Sometimes just walking past each other in the kitchen and catching our eyes feels skin tinglingly gorgeous.

  • Everyone, please check your ChineseHoroscope to see if you are compatible?
    Unfortunately, mankind has to go through this cosmic witchcraft to know if your are with your true soul mate. The bizarre thing is it actually is real and true. It is very accurate. As a Christian man I ask why Western Astrology & Chinese Astrology have been placed on mankind? Why can’t we be ourselves? Perhaps old Nick has something to do with it. To divide. In the meanwhile those who do not research this fact, will divorce, divorce and divorce –

  • I dated a girl who said, up front, that she didn’t want to lose her independence. I said “ok”. I quickly learned that she only spent time with me when she wasn’t shopping and spending time with her emotionally messed up friends. I sent her packing!!!

    Are there any quality time / physical touch women out there????

  • Very, very interesting on the 90% women not being attracted to their long term partner at first. Amazing how vastly different we can be.
