Ep. 14: Desperately Seeking Intimacy

What is intimacy?
The concept of intimacy involves a mutually consensual relationship where two individuals reciprocate feelings of trust, emotional and physical closeness toward each other.
The 4 main types of intimacy include:
1. Intellectual intimacyAre you both on the same wavelength? Do you “get” each other? Can you talk ‘til all hours of the night about anything and everything?
2. Emotional closenessMany couples may be together for a long time, but lack this type of intimacy. That’s because this one is probably the scariest. When you are emotionally close, it means you are vulnerable. You let your guard down and feel safe doing so. When you feel this kind of closeness, you can tell each other anything and feel accepted. You both can “feel” what the other person is feeling.
3. Spiritual bondWhen you form a spiritual bond, you both understand each other’s spiritual quest and beliefs. You allow the relationship to have a spiritual component.
4. Sexual expressionBeing “intimate” is at the root of the word “intimacy,” but is it just sex, or is it more than that? If you are both able to feel free to express yourselves in a sexual way and feel comfortable with each other, than you have reached a good level of intimacy. It is more than just sex — you are sharing that most special part of yourself.
