Intimacy is more than sex and affection; it’s a deep connection that weaves throughout the entire relationship.
Consider intimacy in your relationship:
- Do you consider other areas of closeness in your relationship to be intimate?
- How is a close spiritual connection intimate?
- How is a close emotional connection intimate?
- When do you and your partner feel most intimate with one another?
Begin to recognise how each of you nurture intimacy in your relationship. Take note of when you feel that deep connection and when you feel it is missing. Communicate about feelings, preferences, and expectations regarding intimacy.
If your goal is to increase intimacy in your relationship, you’ll need to take some steps to get there. Decide on a time in the future to have a conversation about your level of connection. The key is to establish a time to discuss progress for the sake of accountability.
If you and your partner ever feel overwhelmed by your results or the ensuing discussion, we encourage you to seek out professional support. Call us.

The Checkup assessment and Checkup report are designed to go directly to couples at any stage of their relationship (dating, engaged or married). The online system allows for dynamic customization of the assessment to each couple based on how the couple answers background questions. The goal is for the CoupleCheckup to reach a more diverse group of couples, to empower couples to deal with issues on their own and to emphasize prevention over remediation.
