Intimacy is a necessary prerequisite to a loving and deep relationship, yet it’s often misunderstood. The word intimacy comes from a Latin word meaning “inmost.” Intimacy suggests a strong personal relationship, a special emotional closeness that includes understanding and being understood by someone special.
