Intimate Experiences to Make You Closer to Your Partner

Intimacy: everyone wants it, but not everyone knows how to get it. It’s not as easy as a few extra hugs and kisses here and there; sometimes it requires a much bigger commitment, and for both partners to work at it. Intimacy means a sense of closeness that you feel with your partner, even though you are two separate beings. But once the initial exciting stages of a new relationship wear off intimacy changes and is different for every couple. There are ways that you can find intimacy in your relationship once more, without going on a fancy trip and spending a lot of money. Try some of these of these now, to kick-start your relationship.

  1. Remember the past

Come up with a list of five times that you felt very close to your partner, and have them do the same. Don’t overthink it, and let the memories surface. Then write down all the things you thought and felt about that time. Look at what it made it special for you, and identify those emotions for you both to do in the future. This can help you both say what you need in a relationship out loud, as some partners can assume that the other person knows, when they don’t. It can also help pinpoint some of the reasons why you don’t feel as close now as you did in the past.

  1. Do something special

A great exercise to do together is something your partner loves, but that you aren’t as interested in, so you can learn more about them. If your partner loves cars, go to a car show with him, and let him show you what he’s most interested in. It can be fun to see your partner get passionate about something, and help you reconnect. Talk to each other about the experience afterwards, and let him know that you enjoyed seeing his passion.

  1. Be open and honest

While social media promotes being completely open with all of your friends online, try saving something from your day, and telling only your partner all about it. It doesn’t have to be a big secret, but it will designate your partner as the special person who hears all of your thoughts and feelings from the day, whether good or bad.

  1. Express interests without looking for common ground

Couples may find it threatening if they’re too different from each other. They may think that these opposing interests will drive them apart. But it really is okay to have differing opinions and interests. It can help you both grow up and see a different side of your partner, as a whole person on their own.

  1. Remember why you like your partner

Think about the things that attracted you to your partner when you first met. Remember how it felt when you first fell in love, and try to recreate it. Keep your partner in mind in a positive way.

8 Simple Ways to Spice up Valentine’s Day

Whether it’s a new relationship, or you’ve been together for many years, there are ways that you can spice up your Valentine’s Day without a lot of effort or money. It’s a holiday that comes around every year, but these tips will help make sure that this year is extra special.

  1. Write a love letter, not a Hallmark card

Add sentiment to the evening by giving your significant other a handwritten love letter, instead of a card bought from a store. Your partner will appreciate the uniqueness of the act, and you can express your true feelings. Even if you’re not a good writer, a decently written card will be much more appreciated than a mass-produced card, which will truly make your special someone feel loved.

  1. Make an intimate meal

Instead of trying to make a reservation at an overpriced restaurant, prepare an intimate meal at home for just the two of you. Even more special, make it together, for a fun activity, complete with some flirtation during, that will set the mood for the whole night.

  1. Create a picnic

What better way to enjoy that home-cooked meal than as a picnic? Especially if you prepare finger foods together, then enjoy them intimately on the floor, with blankets and pillows.

  1. Use candles for the night

Set the mood further with candles in as many rooms as you possibly can. Dinner over candlelight is much more special than another meal at your dining room table with the lights on. If you’re doing the tip above though, don’t put any candles on the floor!

  1. Make a mix tape

Well, in 2016, you probably won’t make an actual tape, but will create a mix CD, or playlist on your iPod. Either way, pick your favourite romantic songs that you both enjoy, or perhaps songs that have a special meaning to both of you (like the song you heard during your first dance together).

  1. Enjoy nature together

Walk or drive somewhere together to experience the beauty of nature, like a sunset in a park, or the stars at night outside of the city.

  1. Create a favourite drink together

Concoct some original creations together, to be enjoyed as your own unique cocktail. Make sure you write down the ingredients so you can recreate the drink every year on Valentine’s Day.

  1. Make handmade gifts

Handmade gifts are even more special than something bought at a store. Try writing down all of the reasons you love your partner, or putting them on slips of paper into a jar that you decorate, which your significant other can look at when they’re feeling down.
