What is emotional intimacy?
Emotional intimacy is a sense of closeness developed with your partner over a period of time. Emotional intimacy takes time to build up as it needs acceptance of one another. It involves sharing your inner thoughts and feelings with your partner. It’s about how well you connect with each other.
Emotional intimacy is an important aspect of any relationship. Without emotional intimacy, your relationship will neither last for long nor get stronger.
Your partner should be the one who knows each and everything about you including the side of you that you tend to keep away from rest of the people. This is what emotional intimacy all about. It’s about
• Sharing the darkest secrets and desires with your partner
• Accepting the person as he/she is, not wanting to change them
• Understanding each other’s space
• Supporting each other in the worst phase
Try to connect with each other as much as possible. Engage in small talks, even if you are busy at work, you can just leave a message or call for a minute. This would really have a positive effect on your relationship and build up your emotional intimacy.
So, as long as you are open and share with each other everything, you will keep your emotional intimacy at a high limit. And this would be really beneficial for your relationship.
