3 Tips for Making Intimacy Last

1.  Look in Each Other’s Eyes

You might think you look at your significant other all the time. But, when was the last time you really looked at each other’s eyes, face, and expressions?

This is a humbling exercise, and it can feel a little strange at first. But, take two minutes to sit down and look directly into each other’s eyes. Don’t laugh or say anything.

We all have busy lives. It’s easy to be too busy to check in with your partner. But, it’s important for the longevity of your relationship.

As the awkwardness of the exercise begins to fade away, you can learn a lot about your partner and your feelings toward them just by looking at them. Practice this a few times a week, and you’ll be surprised at how connected you feel.

 2. Check in With Each Other

Make a point to have a “check in” with your partner once a week. Share what you’re thinking and feeling. Bring up anything you think is important to your relationship.

Be open and loving toward whatever your partner has to say and expect that they’ll give the same respect to you.

These check-ins make it easy to feel connected. They can also help reduce the number of arguments you have with your partner. You’re making a commitment to get everything out in the open on a regular basis.

3. Spend Time Apart

You’ve heard the phrase “absence makes the heart grow fonder.”

Spending days or weeks away from your partner on a regular basis is not good for relationship. Yet there is some truth to the statement – short absences allow us time for reflection on our partner.

Many times, we get caught up in routine when it comes to our relationships. We get comfortable, lazy, and complacent.

You can build more intimacy by actually spending some time apart from your partner. It will allow you to reconnect with yourself and think about your role in your relationship. Doing something you enjoy or relaxing with your own thoughts. This can help you reflect on your relationship on a regular basis. Take yourself on a date! Self-care is important to any relationship. It can end up making your connection stronger.
