Studies say that 4 minutes of uninterrupted eye contact can increase intimacy. To test this theory out, we brought in six pairs in different stages of their relationship and had them try it. How do you stay connected?

That black man has the most sweetest face I've ever seen. Also the older couple were just adorable and you can tell they have had a great marriage together ❤️

What struck me was the phrase: "It's not natural." Nothing could be more natural! We just live in a society that atomises us and that what we should care about is our own personal prosperity. Lover or stranger, we have one big thing in common - we're human and we are inbuilt with a need to connect to other humans. I don't think the way society is geared to seek after personal wealth and material goods matches up with the deeper human need for attachment, and I think it bleeds us of empathy for eachother. And no time has been worse, I don't think, for this social isolation, than right now.

It all makes sense now... I felt shy and reserved around my boyfriend for the first 2 days but by day 4 I was staring into his eyes and was just open about everything with him and no longer held any fears in my heart

Did u get this music from the 6th episode of Scandal where Fitz wanted Olivia to just stand with him for one minute? No words just be together. I just watched it and recognized the music from this video!!!! Or was that a coincidence?!!!

Their souls were communicating with each other. Old couples were so adorable to watch! I feel envy towards their relationship. I also wonder how many challenges they have overcome that made their relationship strong.

😭😭😭😭😭 omg! I gotta call somebody 😢😢😃😃✌✌✌
This wouldn't work for me because its really difficult for me to connect to people and i couldn't stay focused for that long i have a switch from excited and hyper, and one word or something said to me could flip it to silent and reserved and maby on the verge of a mini panic attack, also most people have a filter in their mind where it keeps out all of the distracting things and i dont have that filter,
I don’t think I’ve ever looked anyone in the eye for 10 seconds continuously

First of all when you play the "Olivia & Fitz" love theme from Scandal....that will make anyone fall in love....ROFL

What makes this even more emotional is the Scandal soundtrack in the background

The senior citizen couple was my favorite reaction, especially the husband's answer. He made me cry. After 55 yrs of marriage their love stood the test of time. It was so nice to their faces brighten up when they started to dance, it was just, simply beautiful.

I have no clue how I got on this site I was just looking to talk with some 1 that might be lonely like I am. . I'll figure it out some how , I was once chosen as "Class Clown" in middle school along with my beloved sister u go figure the laughs were frigging funny omg did we laugh our asses off, but today I'm sorry to say I am not that Class Clown laughing anymore, those days r under the bridge. I just was hoping maybe just maybe talking with some 1 can put that smile back on my face once again.
