Whenever you find yourself feeling worried or concerned about the state of your relationship, then it’s important for you to take an introspective look at your love and ask yourself these three things:
- Do you and your partner have an active sex life? If so, how often do you get sexually intimate?
- What values and principles do you and your partner share as a couple?
- For how long have you and your partner been having a hard time in your relationship?
It’s important for you to really think about those questions and come up with meaningful and profound answers to help shed light on your situation. But this article isn’t going to be about those things. This article is going to be about how you answer this question in particular: how often do you and your partner kiss each other? It may seem like a very simple question, but it can actually say so much about you and your relationship. Interested in knowing why? It’s because if you don’t kiss so much in your relationship, then that is an indication that there is a substantial lack of intimacy between the two of you.
And if you don’t do something about it, the intimacy between the two of you can dissipate entirely – and there will be no relationship to speak of. A lot of modern relationships always need to establish a sense of sexual intimacy somehow. That’s essentially what separates a romantic couple from a friendly one. When you are married to someone and there is no sexual intimacy in your relationship, then you might as well just be friends with your partner. There is no romantic energy in your relationship when there is a lack of sexual intimacy. And you really need to work on that if you see that it’s a problem that applies to your relationship in particular.
A lot of the time, these problems can be solved with a kiss. Okay, maybe not just one kiss. But you should never underestimate the power of kissing in your relationship in general. When talks revolve around sexual intimacy, it’s important to note that it doesn’t always have to refer to the act of sexual intercourse. Kisses are perfect expressions of sexual intimacy. And it doesn’t always have to lead to sex for it to be meaningful. You should never devalue the importance of kissing your partner. And whenever you do kiss your partner, make sure that you really mean it.
Really pour your love and emotions into your kiss. Really make sure that your partner feels your affection through your lips. Don’t just be kissing your partner as if you’re doing it without a sense of purpose. And you don’t even have to be limiting yourselves to just kissing either. Remember that hugging your partner can be just as effective; it can be just as intimate. If you feel like you aren’t connecting with your partner anymore, try just hugging one another a little more often. You would be surprised at how significant an impact that is going to make. But still, even though hugs can be pretty effective, it’s nothing compared to sharing a kiss with the person you love.
One of the most plainly obvious ways to keep the intimacy alive in a relationship is to kiss one another often. And it’s a shame that not many couples are able to recognize this fact early on. It’s a shame that something as simple as that can elude so many couples who are in hot water. Kiss your partner everywhere – on the lips, on the cheek, on the forehead, on the shoulder, and everywhere else. Be creative. Make a habit out of kissing one another when you’re just about to part ways in the morning. Make it a point to immediately kiss each other when you first see one another after a long day of being apart. Kiss your partner just before you’re going to bed.
Kiss your partner passionately before you leave for a long trip. Kiss your partner just as passionately the moment that you return home. Give each other surprise kisses – the ones that your partner would never expect. Kiss your partner while they’re sleeping. They might not notice it – but you’ll still be doing your part. Whenever you kiss, you really need to make your partner feel just how special they are to you. You really need to reaffirm just how attached you are to them and to your relationship.
You really need to let them know through your lips that they just aren’t someone else to you. Let them feel that you’re really serious about spending the rest of your lives together. At the end of the day, what do you have to lose? If you feel your relationship falling apart, a simple kiss might just do the trick to make everything right.
