Being Intimate

Vulnerability and intimacy are two words that create stress for most humans. To experience intimacy on deeper and more profound levels, one must experience vulnerability.

Physical intimacy is enhanced through the vulnerability in taking a risk and sharing things that are unnerving.

The rewards for those risks are stronger love bonds and a passionate,  profound love that you can share for a lifetime.

5 Ways to experience physical intimacy:

  1. Give 20 non-sexual touches per day.
  2. Have spontaneous sex at least once a month.
  3. Ask your partner to tell you something new that he would like to try; you answer the same question, and then do it!
  4. Light aromatherapy candles around the house (sensual and romantic scents), and invite your spouse to share a candlelight bubble bath with a glass of wine and quiet conversation in the tub.
  5. Call, text or send flowers and tell your partner how much you love him and that you are thinking of him.

My husband and I talk all the time. It's really important to stay friends and stay connected via conversations.

I like the idea of spicing up our physical intimacy. It's nice the article states to make 20 non ual touches to your partner. I like that it's not solely focused on . Physical intimacy is so much more than just that.

Social intimacy is important for sure. My husband used to always hold my hand, always. Now that we're married, it's died down haha, but if I remind him or just take initiative and grab his, he likes that.

I think having intellectual intimacy is so important. It's always nice to talk about dreams and ambitions together. Normally that's something talked about often when you're first dating, so it shouldn't end just because you're married now.
