5 Secrets for Increasing Intimacy

Aug 17, 2007
Intimacy is the spark that helps to keep a marriage alive. However, intimacy can quickly fall to the wayside when careers and family get in the way and take over. That intimate feeling that used to spark romance seems to be harder to find once you've been married for a few years. The demands of life can get the way and you and your partner can be left wondering how to increase the intimacy in your relationship.

Intimacy is an important part of a relationship. Intimacy is that connection between you and your spouse that makes you desire each other and makes you excited to be with each other. When the intimacy starts to fade, it could spell trouble for even the best of relationships.

Here are five secrets to helping increase the intimacy in your relationship:

1. Make a point to connect on a deep level. One way to do this is to lie together, each feeling the others heart beat and synchronizing your breathing. This can bring you together on such a deep, intimate level that it is exhilarating.

2. Make eye contact. Direct eye contact has been shown to be a very emotional action. It stirs emotions within a person that are very intense. Gazing into your lovers' eyes can really give intimacy a kick.

3. Kiss. Many times as a relationship ages, kissing is lost. A kiss is one of the most intimate actions between a couple. A kiss can signify so much more than any other thing you can do.

4. Spend time enjoying each others company. You do not have to be doing anything else but being together. You do not have to talk even. Just the simple act of spending time together is enough.

5. Do small things that say "I love you". It is usually the smallest gestures that say the most. By doing these small things you won't even have to say those three little words; your partner will just know and they will appreciate it, too.

These are five great ways to increase the intimacy in your relationship. By doing things like this you are not going to focus on anything sexual, which can often be confused with intimacy. You are simply going to be focused on increasing the intimacy between you and building it up to where it once was.

As you build the intimacy in your relationship you will soon start to see its impact. You may get giddy like you were when you first got together. You may start to feel like you are going through puppy love all over again. Best of all you are going to be creating and strengthening that bond between you that will help to keep your marriage happy. That is how intimacy works.
