4) Focus on giving love
When you want to build intimacy in your relationship, focus on giving out love and not just receiving. We are happy when other people love us. Try loving your partner and showing it with actions and intimacy will just build. We are loved more when we show love to our partners.

By practice open communication, you agree to share everything with him or her. Keeping things from each other creates mistrust and is a major cause of breaks.
