50 Intimate Love Quotes About Emotional Intimacy In Relationships

What is an intimate relationship? Quotes that define the characteristics of real emotional intimacy.

Intimacy in relationships is commonly misconstrued. It’s not all about the physical aspect of your relationship. It’s deeper and more meaningful and emotional than that. Love has to be given more credit. If someone only finds intimacy with their significant other in the physicality of their relationship, maybe that connection and those feelings should be reconsidered. Everyone deserves to be loved entirely for everything they are and stand for.

Intimacy is emotions, love, thoughts, effort, smiles, laughs, memories, fights, and passion.

Too many times love is taken for granted and not appreciated the way that it should be. Lust is so frequently mistaken for love. Feelings and attachments that develop from a purely physical relationship make things complicated when people are trying not to build an actual relationship. It’s so hard to be physical with a person without developing some sort of feelings or attachments for them. That’s how people work. A lot of love stories start from a simple hook up because they end up spending so much time together due to their moments of lust and horniness that they can’t help but start to get to know that person regardless of their intentions going into the situation.

Intimacy in a relationship is often not given enough respect either. People tend to dive right into the physical aspect of a relationship because that’s fun and exciting, but it can also take away from the real emotional connections between two people. Or it can even distract the couple from a lack of emotional connection between them that they’re not yet ready to address. If two people are in a bad relationship and they just avoid their problems by being physical, it prevents them from growing closer and getting better emotionally and mentally with each other because all they think about and focus on is the intimacy between them physically.

1. Open your heart to those who’ve earned it.

“There’s a place in your heart where nobody’s been. Take me there.” — Rascal Flatts

2. Honesty is the best policy.

“Intimacy is about truth. When you realize you can tell someone your truth, when you can show yourself to them, when you stand in front of them and their response is ‘you’re safe with me’, that’s intimacy.” — Taylor Jenkins Reid

3. Dreaming about those you love

100 Best ‘I Love You Quotes’ For Soulmates And Kindred Spirits

Because you can never say those 3 little words too much.

Saying “I love you” to your soulmate never goes out of style.

Those three little words say it all — whether you’re saying them to someone’s face or offering them in the form of simple love quotes you send them on social media, in texts, DMs, or even in good, old-fashioned greeting cards. Or do they?

No one can deny the power of hearing the person you love actually say “I love you” out loud.

Once strung together, those three words are a big deal, and saying them to the love of your life is just as meaningful the 500th time as it is the first time around.

If you’re true soulmates and kindred spirits, you’ll never get tired of hearing them said, and you’ll never get tired of saying them to him or her in return.

In fact, when you’re in a long-term romantic relationship with someone you truly love, it’s easy to fall into the (totally beautiful, even healthy) habit of saying “I love you” multiple times a day, every day.

But when “I love you” becomes the new “Good morning,” “Goodnight,” and “I gotta run, but could you please pick up some more almond milk later if you get a chance?” — it can start to fall on, well, let’s not say deaf ears, but certainly less swept-of-their-feet ears.

While those three words certainly mean a lot, there are plenty of other ways to express the unconditional love you feel that you may not have thought about much.

In fact, there are as many different ways to say, “I love you” as there are reasons to say it — and then some!

It can be fun and romantic to mix up your daily I love you’s and find new ways to make your partner’s heart melt all over again.

Of course, we can’t all be Shakespeare.

For some of us, words of affirmation simply aren’t our primary love language, and probably never will be, so managing to string those three little words together usually feels like an accomplishment in and of itself.

Fortunately, there’s nothing wrong with borrowing a little romantic inspiration in the form of quotes about love taken from authors, poets, movies, songs … you name it!

Whether you’ve been saying it for years or it’s the very first time, get ready to make …

20 Love Poems For Her (To Help You Win Back Her Love)

20 Love Poems For Her (To Help You Win Back Her Love)

You can’t lose with these.

Sometimes, when you have a bad fight or even break up with someone you love, the feelings you have for them stay strong — so you do what you can to try to win them back.

Wooing back an angry (or ex) lover may seem like a difficult task. What can you possibly do to steal her heart again?

You could try to make a romantic statement by running after her at a train station or airport (like in the movies!). But unless she’s traveling soon, you probably won’t get many opportunities for that.

You could throw pebbles at her bedroom window to get her to talk to you, but honestly, that’s only romantic in movies and sort of creepy/possibly illegal in real life.

If you want to know how to get your ex back or calm your current girlfriend down, well, when it comes to sweeping someone back off their feet, it’s often the smallest things that count.

Love poems are a great way to let someone know you’re sorry for messing up and you are really, truly are in love with them.

The best love poems tend to be short, simple, and straight to-the-point. But don’t worry, you don’t have to be Shakespeare to win her over.

You can send her one (or some) of these love quotes from our favorite poets, from Instagram-famous Atticus to Lang Leav to Robert Browning.

So, continue reading below, and save a few — or all — of these 20 romantic quotes from love poems sure to win her over and get her back into your loving arms.

1. Tell her what she means to you.

“You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest, and most beautiful person I have ever known — and even that is an understatement.” — F. Scott Fitzgerald

2. Tell her how much you miss her.

“To know that I miss you so much when you leave; to know that I need you like the air that I breathe. To know that I want you with a passion so blind, is to know that I love you — with no doubt it my mind.” — Lang Leav

3. Tell her that you can’t go on without her love.

“I never fully realized what it meant to hurt (to truly hurt) until I wanted you to such a great extent, only to have no other …

15 Happiness Quotes That Will Make Them Fall In Love All Over Again

A smile is the most attractive thing you can wear.

Love — it makes us smile, it makes us giggle and it makes us rejoice in the little moments we share together.

Doing something simple as sharing sweet love quotes with your special someone has the power to make them feel happy like nothing else can. In other words, love creates happiness in us as human beings.

But how much does love help, or how much does a lack of love hinder, our happiness?

Researchers working on Harvard’s famous Grant Study have now spent more than 80 years trying to answer that exact question.

George E. Vaillant, the psychiatrist who led the study for more than 40 years, summed it up as follows: “The seventy-five years and twenty million dollars expended on the Grant Study points to a straightforward five-word conclusion: Happiness is love. Full stop.”

As Vaillant puts it, there are two pillars of happiness: “One is love. The other is finding a way of coping with life that does not push love away.”

All of which is to say that scientific research proves what we’ve suspected all along: Love is key to leading a happy and fulfilling life.

You can have a successful career, make an impressive income and be in top physical health, but without supportive relationships to help you overcome life’s obstacles and celebrate life’s every day moments, you won’t find the happiness you seek.

You can nurture the love in your life by sharing some uplifting sayings about the power of love and happiness with the person or people who mean the most to you.

Here are the 15 best quotes about love and happiness guaranteed to help you say “I love you” — and make you both smile.

1. Love is only one of the many reasons to be happy

“There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy.”

2. Love is power

“The real power of a man is in the size of the smile of the woman sitting next to him.”

3. We all deserve love that lasts a lifetime

“You, of all people deserve a happy ending.” — Sylvain Reynard

4. Love means acceptance

“The secret of being happy is accepting where you are in life and making the most out of everyday.”

5. True love is a story that has no ending

“Maybe it’s not about the happy …

40 Simple, Sweet & Totally Romantic Ways To Tell Her You’re Madly In Love

Is it getting hot in here?

Nobody is perfect. That shouldn’t be some big revelation to anybody (hopefully), but that doesn’t mean that at times we don’t wish some people were; like our boyfriend, fiancé or husband for example.

We love them and we know they mean well (most of the time), it’s just that we wouldn’t be human if we said that there weren’t some things that they could do differently.

I think most women will agree with me when I say that there is nothing sweeter than a man who knows how to use his words, or even someone else’s words borrowed in the form of simple love quotes, to say exactly how he feels.

Seriously, when a guy tells you what he really wants and feels, it’s hard not to get excited by that.

When guys leave us guessing what they could be thinking, we have the tendency to over-analyze and freak out. Every guy should know this and try to avoid it happening. Believe me, we hate it as much as you do, gentlemen.

It doesn’t always take much to set a romantic mood. Really.

Tell us that you’ll do the dishes solo because you know we’ve had a long week. Whisper in our ear what you want to do to us after the party is over. Tell us that you loved our mother’s frittata. Or tell us that you have never loved someone the way you love us.

It’s really not that hard.

It’s these little things that can mean pretty much everything. After all, healthy relationships are founded on effective communication skills. And some days, we just really need to hear you say it more than others.

So, if you love her, show her. Or rather, tell her. And there’s more than one way to do that.

Here are 40 romantic yet short and simple love quotes and sweet things to tell a woman sure to light a fire in her heart.

1. Let’s grow old together, baby.

“I want you around when our hair gets gray and our faces get wrinkles.”

2. You are my home, sweet home.

“Your arms feel more like home than any house ever did.”

3. What more could you ask for?

“Baby all I need is you.”

4. I feel exactly the same way.

“When I am with you, the only place I want to be is closer.”…

40 Empowering ‘I Love Me’ Quotes To Give Yourself For Valentine’s Day When You’re Single

Single and loving (myself).

Self-love is an unconditional type of love that thrives on self-confidence, self-awareness, and self-acceptance. We’ve heard it told time and time again, self-love is the best love. That really is true, because self-love can never be taken away from you. It’s a permanent form of love, unlike the love that comes from other people.

Taking time to love yourself is time well spent. You can always count on yourself to love you no matter what, so you don’t have to fear heartbreak or loss.

Another person cannot love in the true fullness that you deserve to be loved. That love that can’t be fulfilled by others only comes from you. You are the only one who knows how you deserve to be loved.

The love that you give yourself is a representation of the love you think you deserve. That’s why it so important to practice self-love. Self-love allows you to see your worth and value.

With Valentine’s day right around the corner, it can be depressing to see all those happy couples going on dates and talking about how to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and all those sickly sweet rom-com trailers — but don’t be discouraged.

You have your own love story … starring you. Valentine’s day is a day about love.  Who cares if people think Valentine’s day is meant only for couples? Single people can have a funfilled memorable day just like people in relationships — or even better.

Couples aren’t the only ones who can experience love. You are completely capable of loving yourself. Being single is the perfect time to prioritize self-love. You don’t have as many distractions and can dedicate your time to yourself and your goals. Getting more opportunities to do what you love, whenever you want will really help you see the value of singleness.

Valentine’s Day is an amazing opportunity to discover yourself and fall more in love with who you are, something that being in a relationship can sometimes hinder. 

Dear single people, don’t allow anyone to make the love you give yourself seem inadequate, because loving yourself is a priority. Being the best version of yourself has nothing to do with your relationship status, but it has everything to do with self-love.

Single or not, you deserve the best of the best. To keep your spirits high, read these love quotes for Valentine’s day that are …

125 Best Valentine’s Day Quotes About Love To Make This Year’s Date Night The Best One Yet

Celebrate this year with the best love quotes of all time.

There are many different accounts of the origins of Valentine’s Day, but most of them involve a Christian martyr named Valentine. The most popular story the one of priest Valentine, who bequeathed the title “Saint” after his death — Saint Valentine was caught secretly marrying couples to spare the husbands from war. Sadly, the Roman priest was jailed and eventually sentenced to death for his crimes, but before he died he wrote the jailer’s daughter (who he had befriended) a letter, and signed it “Love, your Valentine.”

This is the most popular story associated with our modern version of Valentine’s Day, which happens every February 14. The idea is to honor the memory of Saint Valentine by holding our loved ones a little bit closer.

A common misconception about the holiday is that we are meant to express our feelings in grand gestures and expensive gifts. Many people blame the rapid rise of consumerism, but with the ways we celebrate Valentine’s day now — with chocolates, balloons, romantic dinner dates and overpriced bouquets of roses and proposals — some people end up feeling upset and even rejected by their partners because the day wasn’t extravagant enough.

This idea is the exact opposite of the spirit of the day. Valentine’s Day is supposed to be about celebrating our loved ones and bringing them close. It is about choosing your partner and proving to them that they are “our person”. It is about loving those close to us and making sure that the people we cherish feel that love — before it’s too late.

So if you’re looking to celebrate Valentine’s Day with someone you love this year, keep in mind where the holiday started, and use these romantic love quotes to help you say just the right thing to your partner. Here is our collection of the best Valentine’s Day quotes about love to help you ring in the holiday the right way.

1. Pinch me, I’m dreaming.

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” —Dr. Seuss

2. Set me alight!

“To love is to burn, to be on fire.” —Jane Austen

3. You are the rest of my life.

“I look at you and see the rest of my life in front of my eyes.” —Unknown

101 Best Inspirational Romantic Love Quotes For Him Or Her

These will put you both in the mood for some sweet, sweet love.

What do the best, most inspirational love quotes we find for the man or woman we love say about romantic relationships and the sweet ways they make us feel?

The beginnings of true love, the falling in love part, gives us starry eyes and the feeling of butterflies in our stomachs.

Being in love gives us someone even better than a friend, to dance and dine with, someone to adventure with.

It makes us do things like this …

And as it grows, love gives us a confidante — that special someone to share our deepest, darkest secrets and our highest hopes and wildest dreams with — someone who sticks by our side even after hearing all about these things.

Love means always having someone around who understands us, even without having to tell them specifically what’s going on in our hearts and minds at any particular moment. Love means having someone who always put you first, even if you yourself don’t.

It’s these reasons why we want to write sonnets and sing love songs, and why love makes us do things that other people might even think are a little bit crazy. If you’ve ever been in love, you’ll totally understand.

It also inspires some of the best, most inspirational and romantic quotes ever uttered in the English language.

That’s why we rounded up 101 of the best, most inspirational and romantic love quotes for her (and him!) as uttered or written by poets, authors, celebrities and lovers around the world and across time that are perfect to share with the man or woman in your life.

1. It takes you by surprise​
