Agreed, for someone to know the true you, they need to see all your sides, good and bad, happy and sad.

I hazard to say that my husband and I didn’t realize what true intimacy was until the marriage was almost lost. We laid our feelings bare with what we were going through last year, it saved us.

Glad to hear that Norm and I knew what this meant back in 1992 when we moved in together within six months he knew me like a book

@Huskygirl4ever We really did think we knew each other, we were also the couple that everyone thought was “perfect”, until he became so lost by things I thought I had no control over (bpd/ptsd). He engaged in a very short (2 weeks) emotional affair online and I found out. He had zero physical contact as they lived across the country from each other, but those words still haunt me. Those words also cut him deep now, he has trouble at times forgiving himself even though I have. To add the cherry on top, she turned out to be a catfish scamming for iTunes cards. It was a fucking mess! That’s why our intimacy today goes far beyond what I believed it to once be.

@Cherie4444 nobody's perfect sweetie remember that I'm just glad you guys found out in time we went through almost the same thing but it was me that realize that Norm was really my forever

Hmmm, is intimacy that complicated?

St-Sinner Level 8 Aug 11, 2019

It's not complicated it's the easiest thing it's just we have to be willing to do it

@Huskygirl4ever
What is written seems very complicated. Why do we make life so complicated? It should easier to know if we are intimate or not.

I have read a lot of things here about intimacy. Physical and emotional intimacy are not complicated things. Both should know rather quickly if they have it or not. If you have to think so hard to figure, if don't have it.

@St-Sinner I agree with you it shouldn't be this complicated but sometimes it's hard to open up two people

Couldn't have said it better. Extremely true, and is very much a part of my life.
