Humans seem to be hardwired to need #companionship--I mean, permanent, life-long mutually vulnerable relationships that are non-familial. Currently, this is reduced to erotic relationships so many people are married/coupled and still cross-companionless. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
The psych data confirms that this is a real need but people need companionship across *multiple* spaces: physically (sexual & non-sexual affection), relationally (friendships and romantically), activity-based, but largely in the mundane, not the spectacular (like vacations), etc.
Across multiple spaces confirms, validates, and reaffirms that you're needed, you matter, you're a hero to someone, you're not alone, it's hard but we're with you, it's worth it, I'm suffering with you, you're forgiven, you're not a loser, it's ok to fail, and so on.
