Intimacy and Romance in a relationship

Everybody has a desire for intimacy. Add some romance and your relationship becomes exciting again. We want the whole package from our relationships (affection, hand-holding, cuddling, sharing, lovemaking and flowers.) Though the image of a couple strolling off into the sunset is a cliche, this is what we long for. Believe it or not, it's achievable. You can build a relationship in which intimacy and passion are still around, years after the first date.

Romance is an attitude and it's extremely important. You don't have to wait for your significant other to turn up with a bunch of flowers in order to enjoy an intimate moment. Romance is not a single event but and ongoing attitude. When sitting in the car reach over and touch his thigh. Leave him a love note on the fridge door. Post a sexy promise on his pillow. Call him at work and tell him you're thinking of him. These small things add up to something much bigger.

Create your own moments
If your man prefers a Saturday night in front of the TV to a candlelit dinner for two at a restaurant, there is still no reason why this moment can't be special. Order in a gourment takeout. Dim the lights, snuggle up on the sofa and enjoy the intimacy. Make sure you don't let the TV stop your from showing him some things and kissing his neck, and seize the opportunity to seduce him during the commercial break.

Reap the benefits of being intimate. The most beautiful part of being in a relationship is knowing that you are not alone. No matter what else happens in the world, you have someone to count on to make you laugh, wipe away your tears and pick you up when you are down. You and your partner can take turns at being the support system. You know you have someone to worry with you and to offer practical help. Take turns caring for each other, no matter what happens
