Podcast – Emotional Intimacy

Emotional intimacy deepens all types of relationships, but not all relationships will be emotionally intimate — nor should we expect that. Today, I share what is needed to improve emotional intimacy — in ANY kind of close relationship — but remember…  it takes two to tango.


You’ll find out:

  • What is emotional intimacy
  • Can you have emotional intimacy with someone who’s wounded?
  • When Bret and I started to feel emotional intimacy (and why)
  • Why emotional intimacy is based on authenticity and can’t be faked
  • Signs you’re emotionally disconnected
  • Why/how emotional intimacy requires vulnerability
  • Examples from my marriage before we were emotionally intimate
  • A personal anecdote with a friend, including past confrontation and how emotional intimacy played a role in the relationship surviving
  • Why proximity is integral to emotional intimacy
  • Why it’s so important to get on the same schedule as your partner
  • Why nothing feels quite like emotional intimacy
