What makes a relationship intimate? – Sex?

Many people think that sex is enough to make a relationship intimate, even though it is very far from reality. 8 forms of intimacy within a relationship are known. Are you aware of what these are?

Here are the eight forms of intimacy

  1. Physical intimacy

This kind of intimate closeness is unfortunately identified by many with sexuality, although there is a striking difference between the two. Physical intimacy denotes physical closeness between two people, strictly outside the bedroom. Do you often touch the other, greet each other with a hug, a kiss, a kiss on the mouth, walk hand in hand, signal your closeness with small touches during the day? Well, then I have some good news, physical intimacy works well among you – reports the Life.hu.

  1. Emotional intimacy

Do you feel able to talk to your partner without any kind of shield about the feelings, plans, dreams that make you feel vulnerable? In fact, does he open up to you in the same way? It is this emotional intimacy that couples are never able to experience in some relationships.

  1. Intellectual intimacy

Are you able to have long, enjoyable conversations that go beyond ordinary life events on your topic? Can you tell each other new things, are you able to capture the other’s attention with just the content of what you have to say? This is a wonderful way to connect that you should appreciate!

  1. Spiritual intimacy

It’s not about religion, it’s more about the kind of beliefs that go beyond the world we know. Karma, life after death, the spirit world, magic… everyone has an idea, an opinion of them, and even if you can share this without experiencing isolation from the other side, you will experience spiritual intimacy.

  1. Confident / total emotional intimacy

Did you make a mistake, forget something, overspend, thoughtlessly promise? If your partner is able to talk about these without lies and fear of judgment, then intimacy of trust is fine among you. Of course, this also requires him to be able to share similar things with you with such feelings.
