By Soham Senapati

It is no myth that relationship requires intimacy. Every relationship comes with a phase where intimacy decreases and what happens to the relationship next; it throws itself from the paradise of Love and hits rock bottom.

Intimacy is not entirely physical; it is the way of connecting with another soul so deeply that you feel like you can see into their soul like it is your own. Being honest is also a part of intimacy.

There is no physical intimacy if you don't have psychological intimacy first.

I quote Richard Bach, "The opposite of loneliness, it's not togetherness. It is intimacy."
