We all want our lives to be bells and whistles, especially when it comes
to intimacy, however, what is true intimacy. The definition of intimacy as
described by “Dictionary.com” is being “affectionate or having a loving
personal relationship with another person”. Many people may think of
intimacy as sexual closeness and this could be true, however, this article
will attempt to describe other forms of intimacy that may bring more
happiness and love into a relationship.
The first is emotional: this form may be one of the most critical one, for
it’s the understanding of inner feelings and understanding. Emotional
intimacy involves two common threads, respect and love. Basically, you
both are connected through feelings and experiences.
The second is intellectual intimacy: to do this a couple unveil their
feelings on issues past and present. As a couple link their beliefs they
share not only their ideas but also their differences. Usually this type of
intimacy begins in the early stages of a relationship because little is
known about each other; as time travels on and due to all the
connections, couples may be able to predict what happens next.
The third is experimental intimacy: this could be the most fun one; here
you and your partner enjoy different types of experience together. One of
my favorites is cooking a meal together, not just any meal but tested and
delicious old recipes that connect to your culture; another is setting up a
date night or even just a short walk where you can cuddle and hold
My last type, although there are several others is the intimacy of love
shown to one another; making one another appreciate your relationship.
Key elements here are thoughtfulness, such as remembering birthdays
and anniversaries, leaving notes describing your feelings and maybe a
little flirty, whatever you chose, the main goal is to appreciate the quality of
togetherness. Remember, intimacy is different to all of us; what you both
choose will set forth a pass for happiness.
Good Luck !!
