Intimacy is more than just sex and foreplay; it involves other things that we do on a day to day basis. Some of these things we may take for granted but we could use them to build our relationships.
Which things could this be? And what other ways could we build intimacy with our partners?
Here are three simple things that you could do daily to increase intimacy in your relationship.
- Communication – Ask your partner the right questions like what they need, what they are feeling, what they are comfortable with, what they like etc. It’s not enough to only talk about work, finances, bills etc but find out what new things they have discovered. Be honest with each other about any issues you may be having and don’t shy away from talking about what you want in the sack, both before and after.
- Selflessness – It’s not always about you, so think about what your partner wants and try as much as you can to fulfill their needs. It’s not something that will be immediate so be patient about it. It will help build both physical and emotional connection and you will both get better “returns” in the bedroom.
- More respect and patience – Quick fixes are useful and appropriate in solving minor issues but not intimacy. Treat your partner with respect and when making love, do it with feelings and connection don’t just rush through it. Making love is something that you have to work through slowly. It’s an art so let it build slowly organically.
