Tips for Creating Intimacy Part 3

This week we have been giving tips for creating intimacy with your partner. By now maybe you can think of some things to do for your partner that will bring you closer. Here a couple more to add to the list:

6. Keep an open mind when communicating.  Promise not to judge or ridicule each other for your needs.  Respect each other's point of view and prepare for compromise.

7. Make sure you and your partner set aside a date night every 3-4 weeks. Hire a babysitter and get out of the house.  Get creative! This can also be lunch together throughout the week.

8. When it comes to sexual fulfillment, don't be afraid to tell your partner your likes and dislikes.  Communication is just as important in the bedroom as it is in other aspects of your relationship!

Tomorrow Joleen will be giving some final tips for us. Plan a date for this weekend!
