How Important Is Physical Attraction?


Physical chemistry is absolutely important in a relationship. It may feel superficial to admit it, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting a physical connection with a significant other. It’s natural and it’s healthy!

Sometimes couples fall into a rhythm of thinking that financial or emotional support are all that they need in their relationship and wanting more is too much to ask, but you can absolutely have a healthy relationship that meets all of your needs including physical intimacy.

If you’re having an issue with the level of physical connection in your relationship, try using the communications exercises we outlined in our “3 Ways To Communicate With Your Partner” post to have a respectful conversation about your needs.
