Do Something New Together
Try doing something new together. It doesn’t have to be something big. You could try having a pet or decorating your bedroom, etc. You can even plan a trip together or get together for friends or family. It will put you in sync and will take the intimacy between you a notch higher.
Give Credit to Your Partner’s Mode of Communication
Not everyone finds it easy to express. So, if you are an easy talker, learn to recognize the mode of expression your partner prefers. Remember, for some communication is a big part of intimacy. Many divorces occur because the couple didn’t communicate much. They wanted to talk about work, good things and bad things as well but their partners were not willing. They missed the conversation and found intimacy lacking in their relationship. So, communicate whichever way you both like and appreciate each other’s way of communicating feelings.
Intimacy Isn’t Just Words or Sex
Many find a simple kiss and asking about the day quite intimate. Some people want this kind of demonstration of intimacy. They want to be welcomed with open arms when they come home. Everyone loves in their own way and they deserve appreciation for their thoughtful actions. Both partners should talk about what they want and what they can do.
Listen Closely to Your Partner
Some people feel lonely when they don’t get enough intimacy in their relationship. Also, too much intimacy can make them feel saturated. Those who need a lot of intimacy will do everything to make sure they have strong intimate contact with their partner. They will listen more closely and they will encourage their partner to be more expressive. But if someone isn’t too fond of intimacy, they will weakly correlate relationship and intimacy. So, if you want to increase the intimacy in your relationship, listen to them and encourage them to be expressive. Do not turn down the topic if your partner is sharing about their past emotional experiences. Some people feel good sharing everything honestly about their past.
These are just a few intimacy tips that will help you make your relationship more intimate. However, you, as a couple must talk about what makes you feel close and intimate with each other and work your way through. Communication is the best way to understand each other’s desires and needs.
