Impersonal Experiences That Can Feel Oddly Intimate

...at least to this intimacy junkie...
  1. When someone uses your actual name
    when you're used to hearing your nicknames
  2. Talking on the phone (esp a landline)
    does anyone remember this? like REALLY remember?
  3. Living in NYC
    eventually, every street corner feels like a wordsworthian spot of time. plus everybody rides the subway & pays the same ridiculous sales tax.
  4. One night stands
    by nature impersonal, but when else do you get to see a stranger's home & like lick their naked skin??
  5. Doing a play or movie
    You're all family for the duration
  6. Receiving long emails from near-strangers
    seductive
  7. Being on ListApp
    hi guys 👋
