The best form of intimacy is sharing hyperfixations with people around you. 

If you don’t know, hyperfixations are topics, things, hobbies, etc., that people with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and other forms of neurodivergence tend to zone in on for a certain period of time where they can sometimes forget the concept of time itself, people around them, and their own bodily needs.
