Module 2: Creating Intimacy
Why is creating intimacy important?
Intimacy is a unique closeness between partners in a romantic relationship. When a couple has intimacy, they feel more content and secure in the relationship.
Sometimes people might take their partner for granted. They may be focussed on work or children so much that their partner ends up at the end of a long “to-do” list. Just like a plant needs water to grow, a relationship needs focussed attention to create and maintain lasting intimacy.
Intimacy is created through a strong friendship between partners by:
- knowing each other well
- being appreciative towards each other
- giving each other care and attention through active listening
- being affectionate
This module focuses on strengthening these four areas of the relationship and creating a long-lasting intimacy.
