Intimacy has been defined as “a close, familiar, and affectionate personal relationship”, as “closeness” or as “a deep association with or deep understanding of”.

Intimacy is not just a physical connection between two people, it’s especially about truly knowing and understanding someone and about accepting them the way they are without trying to change anything about them.

Sam Keene once said that “We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.”.2

Because all relationships, even the best ones, need a little pick-me-up sometimes, here are a few very helpful tips on how to increase intimacy with your partner:

1. Work on Communication

One of the most important things you should do if you want to increase the intimacy in your relationship is to work on improving the communication with your partner.

Be a better listener, learn how to communicate what you need, ask for help or just learn how to express things in a way your partner will actually hear.

Oh yes and just be present. Men don't like to talk much so don't be offended when he seems to close up. Nothing to do with you. It just is.
