(psychology, self-help) Intimacy in Relationships


Humans are social creatures. We crave connection with fellow humans and need warmth, love and care to thrive. That’s why intimacy becomes pivotal to the success of human relationships. But when we speak of romantic relationship, sexual intimacy is the first thing that comes to our mind. However, nourishing other types of intimacy is equally important in a relationship to derive maximum satisfaction. Often, other types of intimacy are not given as much importance, and couples lack the connect that would make their relationship fulfilling by all means. As Alain de Botton said, “Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone – and finding that that’s okay with them.” The closeness you feel with a significant other isn’t just physical or emotional, there are different types of intimacy in a relationship. Each equally important in its own right. So, let’s take a close look at how intimacy manifests in its many forms and why couples must work at embracing it all for long-term togetherness.
