Do you feel a lack of deep emotional bond with your partner? Emotional intimacy can be a struggle between couples. One reason behind it may be that it is not always the easiest thing to be your separate self while sharing your deepest emotions with your partner. At times you begin to feel that you have resigned or focused yourself to the relationship so much that your former self seems to be lost forever. A deep emotional bond does not mean two individuals must lose their separate identities. They just need to have a good relationship with healthy boundaries.
