4 Ways To Improve Intimacy In Your Relationship
So many people consider sex and intimacy as one and the same—and it’s easy to see why. Rom-coms often portray relationships with lots of romance and passion but without the messiness of everyday life. And although sex is a wonderful way to feel close to your partner, there are other ways to build intimacy.
SpicyBox is a date night subscription box that transforms time spent together from ordinary to extraordinary. Each box comes with activities focused on strengthening your relationship as a whole and deepening your bond with your partner. Learn other ways to develop better intimacy with your significant other below.
1. Try new things together
It’s time to put an end to the stereotypical dinner-and-a-movie date. Research has hinted that when couples engage in new activities together, their feelings of happiness and satisfaction increase. Consider anything that will help you step out of your comfort zones, such as taking a class, playing a sport, or even volunteering for a shared cause. Write a bucket list of ideas to make wonderful new memories and bring you even closer together.
2. Show affection often
Physical touch offers many health benefits for couples, including an increase in the bonding hormone, oxytocin. This hormone is known for its association with empathy, trust, and relationship-building. Being touched by someone we love helps our bodies and brains relax, especially after a stressful day at work. There are many ways to show affection to your partner that isn’t sexual—try holding hands, a gentle massage, or lingering a little when giving them a hug.
3. Offer support when needed
Being supportive is one of the best ways to contribute to a relationship. This means doing or saying something daily to show your appreciation and meet your partner’s needs. Hold them when they’re upset, surprise them with a thoughtful gift, or cook them a special meal. Ask about their feelings and listen without judgment. This kind of consideration is key to building lasting intimacy.
4. Make your partner a priority
We understand that working full-time, taking care of children, or household chores can leave you feeling exhausted at the end of the day. However, this leaves you with little time to connect with your partner. Make them feel important by setting aside time to communicate with no interruptions. Include them in your morning routine by enjoying a cup of coffee or engage in some pillow talk before going to bed. It may seem unromantic to schedule time together, but life can get in the way if it’s not on the calendar.
