10 Secrets to an Intimate Relationship

A lot of couples that I work with express a desire to increase the intimacy in their relationship.  Today I want to share 10 secrets in increasing relationship intimacy through communication.

  1. Look for the good in your partner and compliment him/her.
  2. Shower your partner with praise
  3. Listen to your partner (this means giving him/her time)
  4. Listen to understand — not to judge
  5. Use active listening (summarize what your partner says before you make comments)
  6. Share your feelings. Your partner can not read your mind.
  7. Use I statements (for example. I feel _____).
  8. Seek solutions to problems rather than blaming each other
  9. If a problem persist don’t hesitate to ask for help. A relationship coach or therapist can teach you effective conflict resolution skills. Click here to learn more about the premarital coaching I offer.
  10. Give your relationship the same time and effort you gave it when you first fell in love.

Premarital coaching is great way to get your relationship off to a good start. Click here to schedule a free premarital coaching consultation.
