How to Strengthen Your Relationship and Rebuild Intimacy with Your Partner
Do you think that there is a growing gap between you and your partner? Do you feel that you're growing farther
and farther apart every day? You want to save your relationship but you are unsure as to what you need to do to
bridge the gap and start rebuilding intimacy in your relationship. What do you do?
If you want to save your relationship, you will be willing to spend the time and energy that it takes to bridge
that gap and make your relationship stronger. It is hard work to rebuild a relationship but it is worth it.
1. Make sure you talk about your feelings and express your thoughts to your partner. Talk about the things you want
to accomplish and goals you have. Keep in mind your partner doesn’t know what you are thinking and what you need
from him or her if you don’t speak up. Don't expect your partner to meet your needs if you don’t let him or her
what those needs are!
2. Always tell the truth. It won't help you rebuild intimacy if you try to mess with your partner’s mind. If you
don’t tell your partner the truth, he or she won’t know exactly what is going on with you. Telling your partner
everything is alright when it isn’t is just going to cause more problems in the relationship.
3. Make sure you trust each other. You can’t build a strong relationship without trust and you can’t have
intimacy without trust. If you don’t have trust, your relationship won’t last very long and you won’t be able to
bridge the gap to intimacy.
4. Make sure you have some couple time alone. Don’t always take family and friends with you when you do things
together. Your relationship can’t grow if you don’t spend time alone learning more about each other. That is how
couples grow closer together. Once you and your partner are more acquainted with each other, it is easier to build
intimacy and this is best done when you are alone. Even if you have been with your partner a very long time, there
are still many things you can learn about each other.
5. Take a romantic vacation with your partner. Choose a destination that is going to make your time together fun
and help you learn about each other. Going on a trip with your partner can help you relax more around each other
and open up. When you are not stressed about every day things, you will be able to build a more intimate
relationship. There is evidence that couples that go on romantic vacations together have a happier relationship
than couples who don’t do this on a regular basis.
6. Don’t be too rigid in your relationship. Both of you are going to have compromise at times. If you want your
partner to do things with you that he or she really doesn’t enjoy, you have to do the same for your partner. You
need to spend time with each doing different activities. If you compromise, you can build a strong
It is not as hard as you think to build intimacy in your relationship. If both of you are willing to spend time and
energy to bridge the gap and strengthen your relationship, you can be closer and happier.
