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

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.

50 Best New Year Wishes & Love Quotes To Share With Your S.O. In 2020

Get ready for 2020!

Heading into the new year can come with a lot of emotions. It is a time where people put a lot of pressure on themselves to grow and make changes in their life for the upcoming year. Many people decide to make new year’s resolutions to hold themselves accountable for what they want to work towards.

The new year can also bring feelings of stress about what you have accomplished the previous year and if you have done enough. However, try to refrain from beating yourself up, being hard on yourself, and comparing yourself to others. Instead, be proud of who you are and everything that you have accomplished. It should be a time of love, happiness, and joy so embrace it.

A lot of people use the holiday to focus and hone in on their career goals. However, it is also an excellent time to focus on your relationships and figure out how you can strengthen your personal connections. If you are in a relationship, spend time with your significant other and discuss how you can continue learning and growing together through 2020.

Along with your personal resolutions, you might want to focus on making relationship resolutions as well. There are always things to work on in every relationship, because people are complicated, so it is important to be aware of how you can improve and better the partnership.

Sometimes, all it takes is communication so it would be a good idea to sit down with your partner and discuss what you want to work on together. No one is perfect and no relationship is perfect but if you put in the work it can feel nearly close to perfect.

Maybe the new year will inspire you to be more open and vulnerable with your partner, or maybe you will realize you need more space to focus on yourself. There is no right way to be in a relationship, but you should always honor what feels authentic to you because your feelings and opinions are valid.

Spread your love and positive energy, and your relationships will become more solid because of it. Only you know what changes you need to make, so commit to it!

To help you out, enjoy these love quotes and happy new year wishes that are sure to bring you happiness in 2020.
