Every relationship in your life is based on emotional intimacy. If you don't connect emotionally with the other person, be it your friend, your parents, your partner, your relationship might not continue to be as strong as you wish it to be. It is true that the older your relationship with someone, the stronger your bond with that person.
We've got you some easy tips that you can use in order to strengthen an emotional bond with your partner.
First and foremost, open up to your partner. It is very crucial to let them know your vulnerable side and reveal your secrets or share your life problems. It might seem like a task but do it anyway. Little by little, you will start to feel comfortable talking about your life and your struggles with your lover. And when they start to put their trust in you to share their life worries, be a good listener.
Don't just say you aren't someone to judge your partner, but be that person who practices it. It takes a great deal to open up to someone and if your partner is doing that with you, the least that you can do is not judge them for how they are or what they did. They are learning and so are you. If you wish for your partner to listen to you without any judgments, you must be the one to be that person to them first.
Show physical affection as it helps greatly to form an emotional bond. A big hug once in a while, a peck on the cheek will only show them how much you love them and care about them. Make them realize you're there for them. Eventually, this will get you two closer.
To create emotional bonding, you can also start to be playful with your partner. Don't just keep dumping your troubles and struggles on them because they said they will be there for you. But, let them be a part of your happy days too. This playful attitude will also make your partner understand you better and feel more comfortable with you. They should see you and experience you in all of your moods. Sad and happy. It works both ways. Source: Times of India
