1. Cuddle With Each Other
There’s something about cuddling in its purest form that makes couples feel a specific kind of intangible connection nothing can come close to. Seriously. It might sound silly or obvious, but this is like the #1 intimate part of a relationship. It’s pretty much the best part.
If you can’t curl up and nestle in his arms around him while you’re in bed, or on the couch watching TV, why are you even in a relationship? Being in a healthy relationship means giving into the impulse to do this.
Cuddling is the best. Period. Let’s move on.

2. Binge Through tv Shows
Trust me on this one – there’s nothing I love better than curling up with my boyfriend to binge through our latest show on Netflix.
You know how much fun binging on good TV is alone – it’s even better when you have someone to share it with.
Plus, boyfriends make super comfy pillows.
3. Follow Along With The Same Show From Different Places
OK, so he’s on a business trip across the country or you’re visiting your parents back in your home town. Or you’re in a long distance relationship.
That doesn’t mean you can’t spend time together!
Get on the phone, queue up your show, and watch along with him. It’s a great way to keep the intimacy in a relationship strong even when you’re not in the same place.

4. Have Designated Sections Of The Bed
How could you not? If you don’t have clearly defined sleeping areas on the bed, it’s madness! On one side one night, the other side the next, switching pillows, getting stuck with his lumpy one, having him hog the blankets – can you even imagine?
In my house, I love to sleep on the left side of the bed closest to the alarm clock and he sleeps against the wall. That way, I can cuddle up next to him (I love sleeping on my left side) and still hit the alarm to go to work before he does in the morning.
5. Shower Together
Who DOESN’T like getting in the shower for some soapy fun with your significant other?
It doesn’t have to get sexy – in fact most of the time it can just be an enjoyable, intimate moment with each other.
There’s nothing that says “I love you,” more than scrubbing someone’s back. OK, there are a few things that say it more than that.
6. Laugh With Each Other
Ever get in a huge fight with him, where you’re both super mad and you don’t even know how you’re going to resolve it and you’re ready to cry?
And then, suddenly, he says something that is really funny for some reason, and you both just burst out laughing?
How angry can you stay when you’re laughing with him? How long can a fight continue when you’re both broken up with laughter on the floor.
Laughter and humor means a healthy relationship. It’s the best way to keep both of you sane (and happy).
7. Don’t Mind Sharing The Bathroom
Look – everyone has to use the bathroom, no matter what gender.
If you can’t pee while he’s in the shower – or vice versa – then what kind of intimacy does your relationship really have?
Now, bear in mind – this doesn’t mean going #2 when he’s in there. That is beyond the pale.
8. Late Night Food Runs
You’re hungry, your partner is hungry, you don’t feel like making anything since it’s 2am, what can you do?
Well, you can both pop over to Wendy’s for some late night binging.
Since you’re both eating junk, you can bond over how unhealthy it is while sating that midnight craving for some grease.
9. Pick Where To Eat Together
OK, I have to admit, I’ve been guilty of this as much as anyone.
When he asks me what I want to eat, I’ve said, “I don’t care, you can pick anywhere and we’ll go.”
And I know that’s a lie!
It’s a bad habit and I just can’t help it.
Always try to pick where to eat and what you want to eat with your boyfriend, rather than making him yell out choices while you wait for him to say the one you really want.
He’ll thank you for it.
10. Change Clothes With Each Other
Another nice, intimate, low key thing you can do with each other. I always ask my boyfriend to help me zip up my skirt – even when I don’t need his help – because it’s nice to do things together.
Plus, if he can’t find that one matching sock, usually I can find it for him.
We’re a great team.
