Key Ideas

Intellectual intimacy

What is meant by the definition of intellectual intimacy: being on the same wavelength, 'getting' each other, being able and enjoying talking ‘til all hours of the night about anything and everything.

You have a similar approach to life and enjoy conversing with each other. You may have different ideas but you work to come together.

Emotional closeness

When you are emotionally close, it means you are vulnerable. You let your guard down and feel safe doing so. When you feel this kind of closeness, you can tell each other anything and feel accepted. You both can “feel” what the other person is feeling.

Sexual expression

If you are both able to feel free to express yourselves in a sexual way and feel comfortable with each other, then you have reached a good level of intimacy. It is more than just sex—you are sharing that most special part of yourself, and vice versa.

The benefits of boundaries
  • Boundaries improve our relationships and self-esteem. They protect relationships from becoming unsafe.
  • Boundaries can be flexible. It’s good to think about them occasionally and reassess them.

  • Boundaries give us space to grow and be vulnerable. 
Determine your borders

  • our heritage or culture
  • the region we live in or come from
  • whether we’re introverted, extroverted, or somewhere in between
  • our life experiences
  • our family dynamics
Boundaries are a deeply personal choice and vary from person to person. You can investigate and define your boundaries with self-reflection.
