When you’ve been with someone for years, it’s easy to mistake being comfortable with being intimate. Intimacy is the foundation for strong relationships; don’t let it fall through the cracks. These 4 tips will help you improve intimacy in your relationship.

#1. Date – Married couples often overlook this simple solution to intimacy problems. Look at a date as an opportunity to recapture the excitement of the beginning of your relationship. eHow.com recommends that you “choose an activity that is romantic, such as a romantic comedy for a movie or a nice restaurant. This can help to spark a little bit of romance and passion in your relationship, which may lead to better and closer intimacy at home.”

#2. Try Something New in Bed – Some of the best techniques for improving intimacy involve the bedroom, but not sex. An article on yourtango.com suggests: “Lie down on the bed and spend two minutes looking into each other’s eyes without saying anything.” Another great tip from the same article: “Next time you’re in bed pull the covers over your head and have a whispered conversation. If you whisper first he’ll probably whisper back—it’s incredibly intimate.”

#3. Touch Each Other Daily – When you’ve been with someone for years, it’s easy to get stuck in a routine. When was the last time you touched your partner? According to bringbackthepassion, “touching each other daily will develop a feeling of closeness in your relationship. Whenever you are talking to each other, you may hold hands. Kissing each other whenever one of you leaves home, especially when husband leaves for office on regular basis, helps a lot. Hug them on daily basis. Even rubbing the back of your spouse can help you improve intimacy in marriage.” Create a routine of touching and kissing.

#4. Do Something Nice – Women often complain that their spouses don’t do enough sweet things for them, but I think this tends to go both ways. It’s easy to get caught up in the distractions of everyday and forget to do something nice for your partner. Just remember to treat your partner to something nice at least once a week. It doesn’t have to be a gift. If your husband loves pancakes, make a batch this week. If your husband seems stressed offer him a backrub. Little things like this show your partner how much you care. When you both feel loved and taken care of, your relationship will be much more intimate.
