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 Cute, Funny Love Quotes For Him To Make Your Boyfriend Laugh Again After A Fight

We can all forgive and forget, right?!

Phew! That was a close one! Another fight with the boyfriend or hubby and things may not resolve like they did the last time.

Fights between couples can be so scary. Before you know it, someone is using the b-word … (The b-word as in breakup, duh! What were you thinking?)

Anyway, I’m sure you have that one friend — or maybe you are guilty of this — who is always saying that she and her true love almost broke up last night.

For many couples, even those who are deeply in love, arguments are a common occurrence. (Unless, of course, you are one of the lucky few with that beautiful, smooth sailing kind of relationship and the two of you never fight. In which case, good. for. you. You are an alien.)

The reality is that most, if not all, couples fight occasionally, and usually it’s not that big of a deal. Fights are a normal way for each of you to get things off your chests and speak your minds.

It can even be therapeutic, and not every fight has to mean you’re breaking up — especially if you know how to calm things down by sharing some cute love quotes that will make you both smile.

Listen, no one is perfect and sometimes picking a fight for the fun of it is more entertaining than watching another episode of Fixer Upper. Okay, maybe not fun, per se, but honestly when you’re around someone for an extended period of time, things are bound to go downhill at some point.

Whether you are having petty fights over what show to watch next or have serious relationship issues that need intervention, sometimes you just need to relieve the tension. Especially if you live with your beau!

And sometimes the best thing to do after a long, exhausting fight is share a good laugh!

That’s right — have a good ol’ chuckle and before you know it you’re back on the couch and cuddling like nothing ever happened.

Okay, maybe not that quickly, but it’s totally possible to get back on the horse with your boo faster than you think. It doesn’t have to be all cold shoulders and awkward silences until someone wants to eat. It really is possible to make up and move on.

Now, I am not saying making jokes and …

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 …
