The indispensables of any emotional closeness in a relationship are respect and trust. Both have to be earned, and both these factors are equally necessary for both the partners.
“Trust,” although it is a small word, if you consider the characters, it is a big word when it comes to its meaning.
Trust is never alone; it always consists of those small fractions of responsibility, care, and liability.
It is the most significant measure of any relationship. If you trust your partner with your life, you trust your life with your partner.
Remember, trust always develops with time. Therefore, you and your partners should try to boost the level of faith constantly for building emotional intimacy.
Also, trust develops only if both of you are willing to improve it. You both need that shoulder to cry when the times are tough and a smile to share when you are happy.
3. Share your secrets
Why is sharing your secrets important? You might have heard of the term “secret keeper.” That’s what you are supposed to expect from a relationship if you tell them your secret. They have to keep it safe.
This will always help you strengthen your bond as your partner will be the one to know most about you. This will make them feel special and, in turn, boost emotional closeness in your relationship.
4. Accept all of each other
No one is perfect; everyone has some flaws. The only difference is some have visible flaws, and some have flaws that are invisible. Judging a person by how they look is the biggest flaw a person can have.
When you are in a relationship, size, height, color, religion, and intelligence doesn’t matter; what matters is if you are willing to accept them with all those flaws.
No one has to change themselves to be liked by someone. That person does not deserve you if you can’t be yourself in front of them. In order to feel secured, you both need to accept each other unconditionally.
It’s not easy to let your guard down in front of someone, so make your partner feel safe with you, make them feel valued and loved.
5. Be supportive
Life is full of happiness and sadness. When I say that you have to be supportive, that applies to hard times and happy times.
Just remember that everyone needs someone special. Be that ‘someone special’ for your partner!
6. Feel blissful even with little things
Grand gestures are amazing, I know. Everyone expects their partner to do something big and wonderful for them. But remember to be happy even with small things.
Don’t anticipate your partner to get you a fancy dinner every Valentine’s Day. Be happy even when they order in your favorite food.
To improve the level of romance, just slip into a pair of matching pajamas and enjoy your food with your favorite Hallmark movie.
