Ep. 186 How to Build Deep Romantic Intimacy: Love & Life Live! at Judson University with Elliott Anderson, MA

We all desire deep, genuine intimacy. But so often, it feels incredibly difficult to cultivate! Sometimes we’re so infatuated we rush things. Other times, we fear getting close because we’ve been hurt so many times before.

In our first Love & Life Live, psychotherapist Elliott Anderson joins me to speak to Judson University students about how to develop and cultivate deep, authentic, lasting romantic intimacy.

Specifically, we discuss:

  • What’s the definition of intimacy?
  • How can we distinguish between intimacy and infatuation?
  • Is there a concrete process for building intimacy?
  • What do psychologists say about finding the “total package”? Is it possible?
  • How clarifying your values—before you’re in a relationship—will help you build intimacy with your future partner.
  • Can texting build true intimacy?
  • What if I don’t have much relationship experience?
  • Why spending time apart in the initial months of a relationship can actually enhance intimacy.
  • Cultivating true intimacy—even if you have an anxious attachment and he has an avoidant one.

Elliott provides concretes steps creating a loving, fulfilling, deeply intimate partnership!
