Increase Relationship Intimacy In Our Stressful Times

This study found that communicating and describing to your partner what you’re aiming for or seeking — it may concern your personal goals, your work, your desires – tends to evoke the same desires in your partner, in his or her own way. And that creates a greater sense of connection.
