Captain Kirk was in a short but deeply heartfelt relationship with a woman who then died. It affected him so deeply that Spock and McCoy got together and decided that the best thing to do was to use the Vulcan mind meld to erase all memory of her from Kirk's a time when Kirk would not be aware of what Spock was doing.
This part is in Requiem For Methuselah.

MCCOY: Well, I guess that's all. I can tell Jim later or you can. Considering his opponent's longevity, truly an eternal triangle. You wouldn't understand that, would you, Spock? You see, I feel sorrier for you than I do for him because you'll never know the things that love can drive a man to. The ecstasies, the miseries, the broken rules, the desperate chances, the glorious failures, the glorious victories. All of these things you'll never know simply because the word love isn't written into your book. Goodnight, Spock.
SPOCK: Goodnight, Doctor.
MCCOY: I do wish he could forget her.
(McCoy leaves. Spock goes over to Kirk and initiates a mind meld)
SPOCK: Forget.
