The What and How of True Intimacy

Intimacy in Relationships. Many often mix it with sex, but you can be sexual without intimate.Those friends with benefits and what-happened-last-nights are majorly physical acts that don’t foster warmth or closeness. True intimacy means deeply knowing another person and feeling intensely known. It involves feelings of emotional closeness and connectedness with another person and is characterized by mutual trust, acceptance and caring.

Intimacy strengthens the bond between people. It’s the glue that fosters closeness, love, affection and helps coupes iron the differences between them. Being and feeling comfortable around the one you love releases oxytocin, which helps you decompress and eases your pain away. What’s more, intimacy increases relationship satisfaction and makes you look and feel younger.

Physical Intimacy

A basic requirement for a relationship to thrive. Other than sex, simple back rubs, romantic body messages, cozy hugs, and sweet kisses all bring you closer to your partner.

Emotional Intimacy

It’s the state of happiness where you connect on an emotional level free from any natural complexities. You share your desires, feelings, fears, aspirations and become vulnerable to each other.

Intellectual Intimacy

Intellectual intimacy lets both of you share your thoughts, ideas easily no matter your opinions diverge from each other. You feel safe to share your views on any matter without fear of consequences.

Spiritual Intimacy

This is achieved when you start sharing morals, values, spiritual beliefs, religious views, and ethics. You are able to pray together and enjoy nature and its varied features.

How To Nurture Intimacy In Relationships

 

Choose Wisely

If being in a relationship with your spouse-to-be will require that you give up who you really are to always accommodate, that person is not for you. Watch out for red flags like regular abuse, blame or harassment and cut your losses early. Make yourself available for someone that will cherish you and support you for who you are. The intimacy in the relationships will grow.

Reveal Yourself

As your relationship grows, you get to see both the attractive and the not so attractive features of each other. Expose your core beliefs, values and ideas and discover your partner’s reaction. Opposites may attract at first, but you will need to explore your differences and decide if they violate your core values.

Develop emotional mindfulness.

How you express your emotions can either enhance or change intimacy in your relationship. At one point or another, each of you will feel anger, hurt or disappointment.  Intimacy depends upon the ways to explicit those feelings that are neither frightening nor distancing. It requires that you work on finding and addressing the root of problems instead of exploding or withdrawing.

Embrace Conflict

As contradictory as this may sound, ignoring conflict rarely works as a means to intimacy.  Conflict signals that there is a problem to be solved and intimacy requires that you face problems with courage the faith that the relationship is more important than whatever crisis that’s going on.

Be an Active Listener

Be intentional to put the phone down and listen to how your partner is feeling. Make an effort to follow up.  It shows that you really care about your partner’s opinions, desires, fears, and dreams. Be the character you want your companion to be.

Be the person you want your partner to be

It’s easier to want someone else to be understanding, compassionate, faithful, giving and generous than it is to be one.  Intimacy in relationships needs to do our very best to be someone deserving of being intimate with. You don’t have to be perfect, it’s the effort that counts.
