Creating Intimacy and Affection
Love is an emotion that is universal, yet in our world it seems to be one of the most difficult emotions to master. Love encompasses an incredibly wide range of both physical and psychological states, from the deepest spiritual virtue or ideal, to the lightest human pleasure, to the most mundane negative habit. The most important thing is that you do not love because you want something in return; love is a gift, a quality that comes naturally to all of us. So if you do love someone or feel loved in return, you are doing the right thing. However, if you love someone and they only have a limited effect on your life, it could be that they are not the kind of love that you really want or need. If this is the case, then there are steps you can take to alter the quality of your love relationships.
Love is a matter of psychology as much as physiology. It is a matter of determining which form of emotion is more powerful, more intense, more frequent, or stronger than any other. In our culture, one form of love that is strongest and most frequent is passion. The easiest way for someone to fall in love with you is through a very intense form of physical affection; however, the problem is that this passion often becomes destructive, or it fades after a while because the relationship starts to lack emotional substance.
Eharmony is a natural quality of human relationships that is present in all romantic relationships. Eharmony is also the key to true intimacy. When you are in a relationship with someone, you may be aware of the physical aspects of your relationships, such as the intense feelings of love, security, closeness, and safety that you feel whenever you are with them. However, another important quality of true and real love is emotional energy. The real secret to love is having an energy of deep connection with someone. True and real love is eharmony; it is the combination of all three of these qualities.
As mentioned, healthy relationship success is a result of having both eharmony and attraction at its maximum. Attraction alone is not enough. To have a successful relationship you must have healthy emotions. A happy, fulfilling, intimate, and loving relationship can only come from having positive emotions and feelings, and a deep connection to another person.
One quality of having a long lasting, healthy, and happy relationship is having the ability to communicate effectively with your partner. It doesn’t matter what type of relationship you are in, communication is critical to maintaining a successful relationship. If you can’t communicate effectively with your partner, and you don’t communicate effectively with yourself, then you won’t be able to maintain a healthy relationship. When you spend time communicating with your partner and truly listening to them, you will learn how to communicate effectively so that both of you can reach deep down inside of yourselves to connect to each other.
Communication can break down walls and barriers that may have been created between you and your spouse. Healthy, honest communication allows you to explore the positive emotions surrounding your connection to your partner. Healthy, honest communication allows you to become more familiar with your partner’s needs, wants, and desires. By learning how to create intimacy and affection, you will find that it is easier to allow those great feelings of intimacy and affection to come naturally.
