Intimacy does not translate to sexual relationship here. Intimacy is more linked to having a tight bond, which go to the heart and goes beyond physical. For instance, sleeping with someone or holding someone’s hands really helps one get through. Imagine that when you are in the middle of sleep and you’ve woke up from a terrible nightmare, having a warming hug and comforting arms of your partner are better. Touch is always something powerful and it’s a healer of wound. When it comes to pros and cons of being in a relationship, you may see it clear.
Males and females are different to each other in a wide range of things such as strength, fields of knowledge and so on. For instance, your female partner can help you cook foods and arrange your room while your male partner can help you solve with electricity, technology, and carry heavy things. In short, when you stay in a relationship, helping the opposite sex do something is funny, interesting and happy. It’s worth helping any way.
