This feeling that you miss - that feeling of intensity, passion, and excitement for one person - you may not have quite that again, although you might. You might have a deeper one that grows out of loss and gratitude.
I've been saying for a long time that sex is easy, but feelings are hard. After several heartbreaks we might learn to protect our heart in various ways. One of those ways is to be more careful.
Love, as you've discovered, is a vast territory, but in the Venn diagram of love, sex, time, and place the overlapping bits seem to grow smaller.

To feel a oneness with someone, you need to be present with them, and they with you, presence as a natural not forced or prescribed way of being
You stop and lie down in a divine and circumscribed zone of acceptance, yet opening into worlds of possibility.
The possibility of identities dissolving into oneness
flowing from individuation to oneness to individuation to sameness to difference and back to oneness
in those moment after moments
you feel connected, accepted maybe, somehow understood
without a lot of pre-judgements about who you are or might be
not sex, not only sex, but what I call full-contact conversation.
