How to Create Intimacy with a Man - From a Male Perspective

Deeper Inside

How to Build intimacy and create a profound emotional connection with your man?

Intimacy and trust develop over time. It is something you allow to happen when it is appropriate. You can't force intimacy or just expect it to occur immediately. (Unless you just have really good chemistry. But if that were the case, you wouldn't be reading this.)

Ways to Create Emotional Intimacy with a Man

  1. Patient emotional connection: When you feel safe doing so, share your thoughts and feelings with him slowly, and encourage him to do the same. But don't be pushy. Cultivate a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere with him where you allow him to open up when he feels like it.

  2. Engage in quality time: Spend time together doing activities you both enjoy, and create new experiences to bond over. Work with what you already know you share interest in. Experiment with an attitude of exploration. Don't try to force anything that doesn't come naturally. Be fully present and engaged during these moments, without distractions.

  3. Show physical affection: For many men, this is the most effective way to express affection and invite emotional intimacy. Physical touch, such as a well timed brush of skin on skin, intentional gripping, a well placed kiss can arouse connection and create a sense of curiosity. Personally, if I don't receive physical affection I will lose all interest. It is an excellent way to soften a man as you ease into emotional intimacy.

  4. Communicate sexual desires: Different strokes for different folks. Some men may be extremely insecure about discussing this, especially if they already have some self esteem issues around their sexual performance. Or if their own sexual needs and desires have been rejected before when shared. Openly discuss your sexual needs, fantasies, and boundaries with your partner as you find appropriate. If you don't just have natural chemistry to begin with, you may have to work together to create a fulfilling and mutually satisfying sexual relationship.

  5. Maintain the spark: You don't have to be around each other all the time. I'm not saying, "we should take a break". What I mean is that absence makes the heart grow fonder. The more you each have space and time off doing your own thing, the more you allow space for desire to grow. You may also find that as you allow the polarity of difference between you to exist, you also cultivate desire for intimacy. It sounds counterintuitive, but opposites attract.

A Personal Experience (From a Hypnotherapist)

In my practice as a certified hypnotherapist, I've had the privilege of witnessing many individuals' journeys towards building deeper intimacy in their relationships. One client's story particularly resonated with me, as it highlighted the power of gradual vulnerability in keeping a partner engaged and interested.

When Tom first came to me, he was in his late 20s and had been dating his girlfriend, Sarah, for about a year. Tom expressed concern that Sarah might lose interest in him over time, as he had experienced in previous relationships. He feared that once she knew everything about him, the excitement and mystery would fade, leading to boredom and disconnection.

Through our sessions, Tom and I worked on developing a strategy for gradually opening up to Sarah in a way that would keep her intrigued and invested in their relationship. We identified aspects of his life, personality, and dreams that he had not yet shared with her and created a plan for revealing these facets over time.

Tom began by sharing small, intriguing details about his childhood, his passions, and his aspirations. He would drop hints about a memorable experience or a personal goal, leaving Sarah curious to learn more. As Sarah showed genuine interest and asked questions, Tom felt encouraged to delve deeper into these topics, revealing more about himself in a gradual, engaging manner.

Over time, Tom found that this approach not only kept Sarah interested in him but also fostered a deeper emotional connection between them. By slowly peeling back the layers of his life and personality, he created a sense of anticipation and discovery that kept their relationship dynamic and exciting.

Moreover, Tom discovered that by being intentional about his vulnerability and revealing himself in stages, he felt more in control of the process and less anxious about potential rejection. He learned that true intimacy was not about sharing everything at once but about gradually building trust and understanding through ongoing, meaningful exchanges.

Witnessing Tom's journey taught me that gradual vulnerability can be a powerful tool for keeping a partner engaged and preventing the stagnation that can occur when one feels they already know everything about the other. By being strategic and intentional about how and when we reveal different aspects of ourselves, we can create a sense of mystery and anticipation that keeps the spark alive in our relationships.

Unique Insights for Building Intimacy in a New Relationship

  1. Practice active listening: Give your partner your full attention when they share their thoughts and feelings. Put away distractions, maintain eye contact, and demonstrate genuine interest in understanding them on a deeper level.

  2. Create a shared vision: Work together to create a shared vision for your relationship. Discuss your individual and collective goals, dreams, and aspirations, and identify ways you can support each other's growth.

  3. Engage in acts of service: Show your love and commitment through thoughtful acts of service that demonstrate your attentiveness to your partner's needs and your willingness to support them.

  6. Embrace vulnerability in stages: If you struggle with vulnerability, take small steps to gradually build trust and openness. Start by sharing something slightly uncomfortable and work your way up as your comfort level grows. Giving it time also allows your partner to maintain curiosity about you.

  7. Foster intellectual and spiritual intimacy: Engage in discussions about topics that fascinate and inspire you both. Share your thoughts on philosophy, art, science, or spirituality, and be open to learning from each other.

  8. Practice forgiveness: When conflicts arise, practice forgiveness and letting go of resentment. Work together to find solutions and focus on the love and commitment that underlie your bond.
