We hear it all the time. Family members, significant others, friends, and adoring fans (I am somewhat of a big deal in certain sub-cultures) say it, we say it, but does it carry the weight it should? Do we know what we are saying? Do we know what is being implied?
Intimacy is when we let down our walls and allow the real us to live, this begins within.
As a man, you have the desire and the ability to build something. Whether it be build a good marriage, build a project at work, build a log cabin.
Intimacy and sex are two different things. They are often confused or made to be similes.
