Many people equate intimacy with sex. No doubt, partly true that making love to a loving partner means having intimate relationship. But, for sure, it doesn’t come with a guarantee. Partners can have vast differences and yet they reproduce year by year.
I believe intimacy involves more that just a physical contact. The need for emotional, spiritual and intellectual sharing is far greater than just being physical. As a result, intimacy is about sharing. Everything….from physical to emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual.
In order to make sharing work, one needs to reveal the whole lot about him/herself. Relationships by itself are a process of self-revelation. Therefore, intimacy requires that you allow your partner into your heart, mind, body and soul.
That, intimacy is all about.
