Intimacy plays a role in other types of relationships. it is the closeness between people in personal relationships.
It’s what builds over time as you connect with someone, grow to care about each other, and feel more and more comfortable during your time together.
It can include physical or emotional closeness, or even a mix of the two.
Your relationships with family, friends, and other trusted individuals all include elements of intimacy.
How you talk, what you share and how your feel are closely related to the extent of intimacy you have with that person.
