What if this Valentine’s Day could be different? Instead of chocolate and candy hearts, how would it feel to give (and get) the gift of intimacy?
In the beginning, you feel that love connection and can’t seem to get enough of that special someone, but what about when you have been together for a while? Sometimes you need to find new ways to spark your emotional intimacy so that you can grow together on a deeper level. Here are a few simple ways to feel closer to your partner this Valentine’s Day (without just jumping to sex as the intimacy connector).
Massage One Another For a Few Minutes
Spending time touching one another- without it leading to sex- can really help grow your bond. Physical touch releases the hormone oxytocin, which gives you those romantic feelings of love. This can be a wonderful way to feel connected to your partner.
Drawing this experience out will help create a more relaxed and warm environment for the both of you. Whether you want to massage each other in silence, or simply discuss your day- you will end the night feeling much closer to one another.
Reminisce About the Beginning of Your Relationship
Sometimes just spending some time remembering the first time you met, or the first time you kissed, can really have a profound result. Just discussing those butterflies that you had can really cause all of those feelings to come flooding back. Sometimes we can forget about how thankful we are to have someone in our life, and how much we need and love them.
Remembering the past can be a great way to bring back a stronger sense of intimacy and connection. You can even continue the conversation by thinking about all of the things you want to do together in the future. Connecting your past memories, with a desire to make new memories, is an excellent way to strengthen your intimacy bond.
Gaze Into Their Eyes
It might seem like an uncomfortable thought for some people, but gazing into your partner’s eyes is an excellent way to trigger a deeper sense of intimacy. Just spending five minutes (yes, time it), staring into your loved one’s eyes, can have a surprising result for your intimacy.
When you look into your partner’s eyes, it helps you feel so much closer to them, and over time it will feel less and less uncomfortable. If you do feel uneasy about this, it can be a good sign that you need to work on the intimacy in your relationship. Once you become comfortable with lasting eye contact, it certainly shows a sincere connection and comfort with your partner.
These are some wonderful ways to grow closer to your partner this Valentine’s Day. Some people think that sex is the only way to feel intimate with someone, but that simply is not true at all.
There are many ways to truly grow your connection- ways which will help create a lasting bond in your relationship. Some women give and give thinking that will create a deep emotional connection. Sadly, it often makes a man feel a woman is simply convenient. Wouldn’t it be amazing to know your partner’s intimacy trigger so you could simply push those buttons again and again?
