Sharing a comfortable silence

sharing a comfortable silence

Usually when people talk about connecting with someone, it’s through conversation.
You talk, they respond. It goes back and forth like a game of ping pong for awhile.

Deep + intimate conversations are cool. They work.

But sometimes, it’s also silence.
When you are comfortable enough with someone to just – Shut. The. Fuck. Up.
And share a comfortable silence.

No awkwardness. Just you & the other person. Together.
I like that. I like when I am with someone and there’s no urge to break the silence.

A silence that is timed, intentional, + impromptu.

No exchange of word vomit needed to build a sense of closeness and intimacy.

It’s not always about the things we say, but rather the things we don’t have to say.
