Are you longing for intimacy? Has it alluded you? Has its absence left you feeling alone? Or have you experienced intimacy only to have it evaporate, seemingly forever? Are you still enjoying an intimate relationship but hungering for an increase in the intimacy you share?
What is intimacy? Is it being accepted for who you are? Is it an effortless and all-consuming love? Is it the confidence that your partner will always love you? Is it the comfort of knowing your partner wants your happiness more than his or her own? Is it your discovery that wanting more for your partner than for yourself is rewarding? Is it your confidence that you can share your darkest moments with your partner without fear of rejection?
Does the absence of intimacy in your life lead you to despair? Does its achievement seem like an impossible dream? Have you come to accept that real intimacy is unattainable? Have you given up pursuing it? Can you summon up the courage to reinitiate a search for intimacy in your life?
What caused the loss of the intimacy you once enjoyed? Did you simply grow apart? Did you discover that what you thought was intimacy was not real after all? Did you or your partner discover something in your pasts that the other could not accept? Did you discover that you or your partner did not really love the other as much as they wanted the other to love them? Did what you wanted for yourself begin to take precedence over what you wanted for your partner? Did something similar happen to your partner? Did your, or your partner’s quirks and idiosyncrasies grow from being endearing to irritating?
What have you found to be missing in the intimacy you still enjoy? Are you burdened by a secret of your past that you are afraid to share with your partner for fear of putting your relationship in jeopardy? Do you have the nagging fear that your partner’s unconditional love of you is too good to be true and that you might lose that love? Are there things you don’t love about yourself that you wish your partner’s love would overcome?
Wouldn’t you love to experience real intimacy? Wouldn’t you love to find a partner who unreservedly accepts you for who you are? Do you dream of an effortless and all-consuming love? Wouldn’t you love to be confident that your partner will always love you and want your happiness more than his or her own? Would real intimacy provide you with the joy of realizing that your partner wants your love more than anything else? Would it lead you to the discovery that wanting more for your partner than for yourself is the most rewarding experience in life? Would real intimacy assure you that you could share your darkest moments with your partner without fear of rejection?
