Intimacy is a closeness and profound connection with another human. Although some people associate it with sexual interactions, intimacy can also be platonic or romantic. Intimacy is often based on love, affection, and a sense of safety. Some people may struggle to be intimate or close with another person if they have difficulty with attachment or life experiences, causing fear of connection.
