This is very unfortunate. Often, the small things are what matters. Ever planned a lavish dinner date with someone, only to find out that all he or she ever wanted was a home-cooked meal from you?
Small things like those build intimacy.
And intimacy is the primary ingredient for a strong relationship.
Ever seen couples who professed so much love for each other, yet they refused to hold hands? Or kiss? Or cuddle? They've never known the joy of Sensual Massage.
Intimacy is often associated with sex. This is a grave misconception. Sex is great, but it does not define a relationship. Intimacy does. Intimacy is physical and emotional closeness. a bond that is pretty difficult to break.
