When people hear intimacy, the first thing that generally comes to mind is hanky-panky. But in fact there is a lot more to intimacy, than sex. There are things you can do to build up your relationship. And if you do them you will feel so much closer.
1. Sleep in each other’s arms
They say, you can tell a lot about a couple’s relationship by how they sleep together. There is some truth to that. Psychologists claim that if a man hugs a woman in his sleep, their relationship are better than ever as they are still in the romantic stage.
You are comfortable and safe together, and in a relationship it means much more than momentary exaltation.
2. Take care of each other in times of illness
It is easy to love somebody when they are healthy, cheerful and full of energy. But when your special one is ill, they may become harder to be around. Try to understand that your partner needs your support. This is the time you can show how you really care about your partner.
3. Share your childhood stories
There must be a moment in your childhood you haven’t shared with anyone. But if you found the right person, you definitely should consider opening up a bit. Often, childhood secrets are the ones we don’t let just anybody in. You will positively know each other better and feel closer after it.
4. Go on a journey
One of the best ways to see a person for who they really are is to travel together. Unforeseen circumstances will reveal all the strength and weaknesses of a person you think you know so well. And it will give you a chance to handle those unexpected situations hand in hand. What can be more intimate in a relationship?
5. Listen to music together
Nothing brings two people closer than one audio player. Make a playlist of your favorite songs and listen together. Share your impressions. It does make a relationship stronger.
