   Areas of Closeness

  1. Doing things Together         
  2. Physical Closeness
  3. Emotional Closeness                 
  4. Sexual Closeness

1. Doing Things Together

It is important that couples spend time together. Their busy schedules came make it difficult to spend time together often. Couples need to create time to spend together regularly e.g. shopping, dining out, going to the cinema, walking, swimming, involvement in sports, exercising,  sharing  hobbies and holidays  can help couples become closer and have more time to talk and therefore get to know one another more better.

2. Physical  Closeness

This is an act of expressing feelings between couples. This can include eye contact, holding hands, hugging, sitting close to each other, massaging one another, being inside someone’s personal space, sexual activity, cuddling, touching heads, tickling etc. This enhances closeness and intimacy between couples. Some individuals are more comfortable being physically close than others. You also need to understand how comfortable your spouse/partner is and take it from there.

3. Emotional Closeness

Emotional closeness involves being open with each other about feelings, thoughts, beliefs, values, hopes, worries, fears, dreams and ambitions. It involves a feeling of safety and having your inner thoughts and feelings known and accepted without criticizing. Attentive listening enhances emotional closeness when both individuals  listen in order  to get to know and understand their spouse/partner more fully, rather than to disagree,  judge, blame or  criticise their spouse/partner.

4. Sexual Closeness

It involves feeling intimate closeness and connected with your spouse.

These relationships are often characterized by attitudes of mutual trust, caring, and acceptance. It is important that both individuals are happy with their couple sexual relationship and feel able to raise and discuss their sexual relationship with the other as needed. Sometimes couples can be very concerned about the frequency of their sexual activity. As long as both individuals are happy with the frequency and the nature of their sexual activity there is no need for them to be concerned or to compare their sexual relationship to  those portrayed in the media or those reported by others of their acquaintance,  both of which can be at variance with reality.
