Intimacy and Commitment

Intimacy means the closeness between two people. One where they feel so close to each other that they can share secrets, and be relaxed around each other. One must be self aware of their wants and desires, and communicate that with their partner. They dedicate their time, and life to one another. Intimacy is one of the greatest accomplishments in a relationship because it defines the closeness between two people. Learn about each other's wants, desires and how to make them happy, and try your best to make your partner happy.

Commitment means the dedication one puts towards another. They dedicate their love, emotions and time to each other, and always consider them in decisions. They put each other's needs before their own most times, and they accept each other. Two people in a relationship must grow, learn and invest together through life. Commitment means taking your own time to find what makes the other person happy, and making them happy.

“I want everyone to meet you. You’re my favorite person of all time.” ––Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
