What Are the Three Most Important Things in a Relationship?

  • Intimacy. You may think of the sexual aspect of a relationship when you hear the word intimacy, but this relational building block covers so much more. 
  • Commitment. 
  • Communication.

The four types of intimacy and how to strengthen each in your relationship

  • Emotional intimacy. Emotional intimacy means cultivating a sense of closeness relating to how you and your partner feel via empathy, respect, and communication. 
  • Mental intimacy. 
  • Spiritual intimacy. 
  • Physical intimacy.

An intimate relationship is an interpersonal relationship that involves physical or emotional intimacy. Although a close interpersonal relationship is commonly sexual, it may also be a close non-sexual connection involving family, friends, or acquaintances. Vulnerability refers to “the quality or state of being exposed to the possibility of attack, pain, or harm, either physically or emotionally. Vulnerability is a state of emotional exposure that comes with a certain degree of uncertainty. A window of vulnerability is a time frame within which defensive measures are willfully diminished, compromised, or even lacking. It involves a person’s willingness to accept the emotional risk that comes from being open and willing to love and be loved. It’s almost a given that a fight will erupt at some point in a relationship—this is bound to happen when you live or spend considerable time with another person. As we’ve learned, getting angry with your partner is run-of-the-mill, or otherwise normal, and perfectly healthy when handled correctly. “Fighting for the relationship means putting down your guard, your psychological armor, your traditional ways of thinking, i.e., being vulnerable, and asking yourself (and your partner) what needs to happen for the relationship to be successful. On the other hand, when they’ll fight for you. A partner will stick up for you to strangers, friends, and, most importantly, you. A good partner won’t let anyone cut you down, even if you’re having a bad day and your biggest enemy is yourself.

How do you fix the lack of emotional intimacy?

  1. Be strategically vulnerable to earn their trust. 
  2. Give your partner daily affirmations and compliments. 
  3. Prioritize sexual satisfaction. 
  4. Make an effort to break out of your day-to-day routine.
  5. Time, or lack of it in response-time. Texts are the heartbeat of a relationship.
  6. Dream together.

Talk is good, but concrete demonstrations of intimacy, such as being kissed, greeted with open arms at the door, or asked how we are at the end of the day, opens and motivates the connection to the less verbal. As long as the less articulate demonstrate their love in their own ways, they deserve credit for their intelligent behavior, and appreciation and understanding, on the part of the talkative. (EZM)
