Relationships without intimacy: what are the reasons, problems, and solutions. Intimacy with the right person is something we all crave and want. Have you ever noticed how relationships can start with a spark, and quickly slow down and become boring? It is normal for relationships to slow down and the reasons are biological and psychological. Individual reasons vary, but the source of the problems is often the same. Some of the issues that often affect relationships as a whole and particularly intimacy, are financial struggles which experts say is the number one reason for relationships to fail. If you can’t pay your bills on time or have problems affording going out, doing fun things or even buying necessities, you are going to be more stressed and are probably going to lack the desire for intimacy. Arguing, bickering, and spending too much time without your partner is also an intimacy killer. Take time alone, go on a trip for a week or a weekend. Intimacy is the glue in your relationship. Relationships without intimacy are no romantic relationships at all. Make an effort to do something nice for your partner, surprise them with a nice gift or take them to a movie. Communicate openly, don’t interrupt and be willing to make some sacrifices. This way your relationship will slowly but surely restore itself and intimacy will again be a beautiful part of your life.
