As relationships grow, we are always trying to find ways to deepen them, strengthen them, and take our connections to the next level. Sometimes we get caught up in the routine of life and forget to pause and ask our partner the questions that give us deeper insight into their soul. This can be accomplished in many ways that don’t necessarily include sex.

“I counsel couples and individuals alike to spend as much time reinforcing the emotional core of their relationship as the they do the physical core,” Laura Dabney, M.D told Bustle.
