Today's song is from the fabulous INXS - Never Tear Us Apart.
I is for intimacy and no I've not decided to become R rated in this post. If you look up the definition of intimacy the words that are used for the synonyms really describe what I think of when I hear this word; closeness, togetherness, affinity, rapport, attachment, and familiarity (reference link)
Part of keeping the romance alive in our marriage is often the little things, like holding hands when we're out and about, a spontaneous kiss on the cheek, or the warmth of a hug in the middle of a shop. Please don't be embarrassed to show affection in public, just enjoy the intimacy of the moment of togetherness.
I think that knowing each other is also an important part of intimacy, and my beloved is definitely my best friend, knows all my secrets, and is the one I want to share my failures and my triumphs with.
A good idea for date night conversation is finding out more things about your special person by asking them questions about their likes and dislikes at different stages of their lives. There is always something new to learn about each other.
