The MagicIngredient

Intimacy is a feeling that should envelop our long term intimate relationships. It is normally shining brightly early on in a relationship due to the “newness” of everything and also thanks to the release of powerful bonding chemicals.

In the absence of nurturing our relationships outside of the bedroom, over time these chemicals and positive feelings subside and we can begin to feel differently; less connected. However, those couples who work at nurturing intimacy, are able to regain those early feelings and maintain them for a lifetime.

Distinct fromSexual Activity

It is important to mention that the type of intimacy we discuss here exists outside of sexual activity. Sex is of course incredibly intimate, but without non-sexual intimacy, our sex lives can become less satisfying or even cease to exist at all. More importantly non-intimacy with our significant other can lead to personal issues and relationship problems.

Taking time to practice some of the exercises in our intimacy guides will ensure that you remain bonded to your partner. Your sex life will improve and you will feel more positive about your partner and about life itself.

There are of course many other things we can do to help maintain “connectedness”, such as treating each other with respect; making our partner feel loved; cooking for one another; sharing domestic duties; sharing our worries and concerns; sharing our joys and passions; having fun and planning activities together; taking time to say how much we care etc.

Doing these things as part of the course of your relationship, in addition to the techniques in our guides, will help create an amazing, long lasting and happy relationship.
