How to Improve Physical Intimacy in a Relationship

How to Improve Physical Intimacy in a Relationship

So you want your partner to touch you more?

There are only a few ways to make that happen…

  1. Understand each other’s love language
  1. Communicate your needs and desires
  1. Fully loving yourself so you can appreciate and validate your needs.
  1. Unblocking resentment, frustration, or other low-vibe feelings that may be blocking this kind of love.

I always recommend that couples take the love languages quiz, and then discuss how they want to be loved with each other regularly (link at the bottom). 

It is important to review how you want to be loved based on your love language often. 

The reason is because couples get busy and stop loving their partner based on their love language because that language doesn’t come naturally to them.

it is not always easy to remember to hug or cuddle your partner on the couch if that is not something you crave or personally like yourself.

So if your partner isn’t loving you the way you want, does that mean they don’t love you?

The answer is no.  

That love language is just not easy for them to give. 

They have to consciously make the effort to hug or kiss before bed each night, as those are actions that they don’t desire themselves.

Another block to receiving physical touch from your partner is to ask yourself- Do I love myself? 

When you fully love yourself you are confident and can put your needs first. You know you are worthy and good enough even when you don’t receive the hugs and kisses you desire.  

You don’t take their lack of giving personally.

Lastly, when you ignore or repress your emotions you are shutting down your heart from feeling emotions that are necessary for you to receive love from your spouse.  And when this happens, you may continue to feel lower vibrational feelings like resentment, frustration, or sadness.
