INTIMACY

Private. Trustworthy. Effective.

sex1

Connecting intimately with your partner whether emotionally or physically can become awkward, life happens and distance between you grows.

Logistics and “should”s take precedence:

prepare that work presentation for an important client – keep the house picked up – do the never ending amounts of laundry – take care of dinner – get in a few workouts – get the kids to school on time – help the kids with homework – schedule doctors appointments – pay bills – worry about your kid’s academic performance and friendships – get the car fixed – plan happy hour with friends in an effort to keep your sanity – walk the dog – coordinate sports practice pick up and drop off – spend time as a couple with other couples/friends – stay in touch with family – eat fast food because you didn’t have time to pack a meal – always be patient – be productive at work – make good money…

giving your partner attention easily falls to the far-far-far-away back burner.

Now…

Suddenly spending one-on-one time with your spouse feels like an awkward first date that doesn’t get better, or the mere thought of attempting “quality time” is repulsive, or the attempts you’ve made have been mind-numbingly boring.

What happened?

Surprisingly, we aren’t taught how to develop and maintain a healthy romantic relationship. This leaves us stumbling around throwing out random attempts at communicating our needs, being responsive to our partner’s needs, conflict resolution, and love building.

It’s a scary proposition that we expect marriages to last long-term without any formal education on how relationships thrive. We are granted a marriage license without ANY training or testing.  WHY?

You don’t have time for trial and error. You need efficiency.
