One of the most important aspects of a romantic relationship is making love. Whether you and your partner are already in a committed relationship or just dating, this act is not only intimate but also an opportunity to deepen the connection with each other and build on sexual intimacy. Often, people confuse having sex with making love, but this is different from what most of us think about the act:
The biggest difference between making love and having sex is commitment. Being committed to someone – even if you are not yet married – means that you are thinking about their needs in addition to your own when you are in the bedroom with them.
When you are making love, you will usually spend more time in the bedroom, slow down the pace and focus on connecting with your partner rather than trying to induce orgasms. This is what sets it apart from having sex, which can be quick and impulsive.
Another sign that you are making love is if your partner asks what positions and activities make you happy. This is a sign that they care about your feelings and are interested in meeting your desires, not just sexually but emotionally as well. It is a way of showing that they are in it for the long haul and that you mean more to them than just sex.
If you notice your partner lingering in bed after lovemaking, this is also a good indication that they are enjoying themselves and want to continue the experience. This is a classic sign that they are falling in love with you and want to continue to connect with you beyond just your physical intimacy. This is especially true if they have been telling you romantic things or saying words of affirmation during lovemaking.
It is also a good sign if they are touching you in ways that touch your emotional center, like holding your hand or resting their head on your shoulder. This is a way of showing that they care about you and are interested in building on your relationship beyond just physical attraction and sex.
Lastly, if you notice that your partner is mirroring you during sex this is a big indicator that they are in it for the long haul as well. He is a good friend and a supportive lover and wants to share his joy with you during this intimate time in your relationship. Seeing him mirroring your movements can be very empowering and romantic, as it shows that he supports you sexually and emotionally. This is a very special bond between a couple and something that is not always seen in modern relationships. In a world that can be so hectic and busy, it is nice to see couples who still take the time to nurture their relationship outside of sex. It is the best way to keep a relationship healthy and strong.
