Intimacy is an area of our relationships that can often be overlooked, especially if you’ve been together for a long time. The spark does not have to fade! There are simple and easy steps to take to create more intimacy and have more satisfaction in our relationships.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Why checking in with your partner on a daily basis is a profoundly simple way to greatly improve your relationship.
  • How to create and maintain the new and novel feelings we have early in our relationships.
  • Understanding and communicating our attachment styles to help create more intimacy in our relationship.
  • How our attachment styles can be changed for the better.
  • Learning the different intimacy needs of your partner and how to communicate your own needs.
  • And much more!

Tim Cole is an Associate Professor at DePaul University where he studies how differences in people’s need for intimacy can lead to a betrayal of trust. He’s also the author of Broken Trust: Overcoming an Intimate Betrayal.
