It’s a shared experience
It’s not one sided
And it’s not something you have or feel and the other person does not.
If you want intimacy you have to ask for it. You’ll need to communicate what intimacy means to you so the other party clearly understands
This word has so many dimensions so don’t underestimate your need or that of your partner. You may be losing so many enriching experiences, just because you have no idea what dimension of intimacy is required in your relationship.
You cannot be intimate only in your head. Intimacy is a physical act which starts by communicating …
What does intimacy mean to you?
I was in a taxi last week, my driver was chatting away…very interesting discussion.
Every so often he’ll mute his call and ask me how I was doing. I was very impressed with his concern for his passenger so in return I kept quiet while he was conversing with his caller.
The funny part was everything which could go wrong with my efforts to stay quiet , went miserably wrong.
I was chewing gum and the saliva went down the wrong side and I started a hail of coughing.
Shortly after that my phone rang during his conversation, and I was frantically tying to stop the ringer.
Then my bedtime alarm went off since I was enroute home at about the time I should be getting ready for bed.
Just thought I’d share this little moment with you all. I thought it was pretty amusing. Sometimes it’s the small things.
