By Jenna Clark
No matter if you are dating or not this is great information to help intensify romance, love and intimacy within any kind of relationship.
Well, glad you asked. Let me tell you, this is a total different era we are living in.
Over the holidays I went to my grandparent’s house. It was recently their 58th Wedding Anniversary! That is extremely impressive!
The love story that is entwined to them is miraculous to say the least. Back in the day love was real. It seems as if we live in an age of internet love connections, instant hookups and grass is greener mindset.
There is evidence, relationships, to suggest that we are looking for romance! Always have been. So, the search of old-time love at least exists. We are bombarded by disinformation. It’s no wonder that Tinder is so popular as a way to simply bypass the complications of love, reducing them down to our primal urges.
“Back in the day, the courting process was beautiful!”
People wrote one another poetry and long adoring letters. They wanted intimacy, attraction, and magic. Wanderlust
There is no reason to believe that we have drastically changed, even if our focus is greatly influenced by sex and body image.
Thankfully, longtime research combined with common sense can bring us closer to finding romance, as well as rekindling your current relationships.
Here are 11 timeless pieces of advice on finding an intimate relationship.
- If you are interested in someone, TAKE TIME TO GET TO KNOW THEM. I totally get it when someone is extremely attractive and hormones are on overdrive. Chances are they are definitely used to compliments. Instead of complimenting their looks, ask them questions that will grow your bond.
- The power of human touch. There is a certain art to increasing the passion with one another. Certain tantric principles suggest getting to know every ounce of your partner’s body helps join you in physical love.
- If you have read countless articles, sites, books on how to make love like a champ, SHOW THEM WITH YOUR ACTIONS.
- Being too critical. Let’s not get to over zealous. It is easy to criticize especially those you are very close to. The next time you feel the urge to pop out with some critical comment about your partner, stop, express your gratitude instead. Look for a positive when all you may be faced with is negatives.
CHOOSE TO FORGIVE.
5.Get together for a cup o coffee or tea. It has been said that you can get to know someone deeper over a warm drink.
6.LAUGH. Women and men both want a partner that they can grow old with. If you are not interested in each other when you are young why would you want to sit next to that person when your older? Successful dates are when laughter is most involved.
7.Body Image. Women and men are both guilty of obsessing over appearances. It doesn’t matter how much cellulite or the size of your penis. When looking for a partner, most people are more concerned with how attentive the other person is than their body.
8.LISTEN. Like Link’s fairy we must listen, rather than waiting for our turn to speak. Actually engage in what your lover or potential lover has to say. It’s called eye contact!
9.If you have a serious disagreement, DO NOT ACCUSE. Also, there is no need to criticize and for sure to withhold any love. Take time. Go to a quiet place to talk about problems that will resolve issues to make you stronger as a couple. No resentment zone.
10.Let’s take it back to the era of love. Who doesn’t love receiving a heartfelt letter? Even be more romantic and send it via snail mail! It doesn’t matter if you live in the same home. To see your own handwriting, thoughts, and feelings is something truly special. It worked then, it will work now.
11.DO NOT BE AFRAID OF INTIMACY. It is the most amazing thing to feel intimate with another. Embrace it! Yes, intimacy makes us vulnerable. It can be scary opening up to someone especially if we have been hurt in the past. You might get hurt again. Though, you will never truly know unless you try. I finally opened up to my boyfriend and let me tell you intimacy is blissful and so breathtaking. Never knew you could feel such ecstasy. So Dive in!
It is such a powerful feeling to be with someone you love. Intimacy is a wonderful thing and everyone deserves it. Make sure to witness your self worth and also living in love.
