"We think we want sex. It's not always about sex. It's intimacy we want. To be touched. Looked at. Admired. Smiled at. Laugh with someone. Feel safe. Feel like someone's really got you. That's what we crave."
Our relationships and friendships today has become very virtual, textual, wordy, screen-y.
We rely on our screens for connection & chemistry. No physical intimacy. No deeper conversations, face to face, side by side.
Tahu² je, rasa lonely. Padahal keliling ada friends & family. Lonely even in a crowd.
We humans don't touch, hold, hug, & kiss as much as we need to. We're not even aware that it's a need. We have become typers; not doers.
That's why we love the innocence & purity of little kids. They're not stuck in this... yet. They hug & kiss us so much- they just don't care.
Kita? Nak pegang tangan kawan² pun segan. Nak cium suami isteri pun segan. Nak manja² dengan anak depan family sendiri pun segan.
Yet when we see old people - cute old friends, sweet old couples - kita ada hati nak cakap:
"I wanna grow old like that."
NO, YOU WON'T. WE WON'T.
We like to watch intimacy in movies, tapi in real life kita sendiri memang takkan buat. Kita lagi rela sunyi sampai mati. Daripada tunjuk sisi diri kita yang manusia ni. We would rather... screen.
