The most important property of humankind is the capacity to form and maintain relationships. These relationships are necessary for any of us to survive, learn, work, love, and procreate. Human relationships take many forms but the most intense, most pleasurable, and most painful are those relationships with family, friends, and loved ones. Within this inner circle of intimate relationships, we are bonded to each other with “emotional glue” – we are bonded with love.
Everyone’s ability to form and maintain relationships using this “emotional glue” is different. Some people seem naturally capable of loving. They form numerous intimate and caring relationships and, in doing so, get pleasure. Others are not so lucky. They feel no “pull” to form intimate relationships, find little pleasure in being with or close to others. They have less emotional glue with family and few, if any, friends.
