The point is, in our society as a whole, they are pretty much synonymous. Even if you don't want it to be intimate, you still need to clear that with your chosen partner. No matter how liberal society becomes, it will never reach a point where no one prefers intimacy, therefore you will always have to check.
I wouldn't go as far to call the synonyms.

Below is quoted from Wikipedia, but you'll find similar defs in other places as well.


Genuine intimacy in human relationships requires dialogue, transparency, vulnerability and reciprocity.


How often do you think a man and a women dating several times then going to bed together will (the staus quo, mind you, you don't marry every women you sleep with , and a lot of women will also dump their partners ) meet the above factors ?

It's a very long process which does not take place in days or in weeks. It seems to me that sex or "physical intimacy" to use a widely popular term is far far from intimacy in close social relation.

How can a person in his/her right mind expect intimacy with someone you have barely know since 2 weeks ago. With all good intentions, all I could expect is that this is a possible relation with the potential to go well and reach after one year or more the status of intimacy.

So why would you check ? If someone is willing to sleep with you after the initial few dates, you can assume that she see the same thing, the potential for a relation, and nothing more. No one should expect that the women to be so stupid to empty your heart in front of you, share with you her darkest secrets and become totally vulnerable.

So then how the heck can sex be "the most intimate thing youll ever do" ? For me personally the most intimate thing I could ever do is to become vulnerable.

It's nothing to be ashamed of.
I'm not talking about shame.


So what exactly do you want to hear ? An exhaustive list of things ?
One honest answer would suffice. And so you have (I suppose)...


But to give you an example, spending the overnight at her place is requiring more intimacy then having sex with her.

Not to insult you: I can understand that perhaps, personally, you would feel that you are demonstrating a great propensity for deep feelings by hanging around afterward. However: how much more close can two people literally be, than when one is physically attached to the other? Dancing with someone isn't even that close. I would dare to say, that sexual intercourse requires at least as much trust between partners as dancing.


It is. A first name basis is enough sometimes. Respectability has nothing to do with a family name.
It is being indifferent, and I don't think that indifference is respectful.


Forgive me, but you seem bent to project your feelings onto what other persons do think.
I simply do not agree that the kind of relationship advice you're propagating is ideal. Is it feasible? Yes. You can bed down anyone you want; but don't be surprised when someone you initially thought was indifferent, turns out not to be.


I could very well extend your belief and say that you use your wife for sex.

I'll be honest with you: the woman that I loved, I truly wanted at any moment that I was beside her. And when I wasn't with her, I dreamed of her even. A sort of wish fulfillment, I suppose.

It is not the desire (as good or evil) that is in question; it is how you deal with it. My wife, had I married her, I would never dare lay a hand upon, unless I thought it comforted her too--that it showed her how much I cared. And that is even despite how much I wanted her always.

Really, what I am saying is just this: maybe it can never be a purely altruistic act (sexual intercourse); but it surely doesn't have to be selfish. It is supposed to be saying "I love you" to someone. "I love you, and I want to be comfort to you this much." And if a husband does not mean that also, when he asks this of his wife (to be that close), then he is being selfish.



Strong infatuation can breed such feelings in otherwise completely normal humans.
It is a common occurrence, truly; but infatuation is not mature love.



Asteroids also drop on earth. I shall now begin to dwell on how Ill cope when an asteroid will hit my home.
Totally different. You have absolutely no control over space rocks of any persuasions. Ultimately, you do have control over yourself and the decisions you make. Sometimes we make poor decisions. And sometimes that is due to ignorance, and still other times is due to negligence; which are both correctable.

Of course, you also have free will.

If you are talking about spatial distance, you are right. However, when talking about psychological distance, how close do you think two ppl who dated several times and decided to have sex can be ? Besides it's role for reproduction, sex is just another tool for closing the distance, not the ultimate "reward" of a close interpersonal social relation. A tool, yeah. It can build the interpersonal relation, like many other things do.

If you advocating refraining from sex until you are convinced that you "love" that person, Id say that while your advice looks good on paper, it's terrible and unpractical in the day to day life.

I would dare to say, that sexual intercourse requires at least as much trust between partners as dancing.
I agree. But humans routinely dance with ppl they barely know at the parties, they swing dance partners, they have fun. They do the same in clubs. In a word, the level of trust needed to dance with someone is extremely low.


It is being indifferent, and I don't think that indifference is respectful.
Indifference is not disrespectful either. But it's not even a case of indifference, in some cases is just playing the game as it unfolds.


I simply do not agree that the kind of relationship advice you're propagating is ideal. Is it feasible? Yes.
You may not agree with it, but its the status quo in many parts of this world. "Serial monogamy", a string of relations with different degrees of success.

You can bed down anyone you want; but don't be surprised when someone you initially thought was indifferent, turns out not to be.
Actually you cant bed anyone you want :P Youll fail miserably a lot of time and youll be rejected. Women are not so weak and naive as you seem to believe they are, because you put all the burden of decisions on man. (i.e refrain from sex untill whatever) They are very well equipped to deal with man and their advances, and perfectly capable to
take decisions about their sexual lives.

I'll be honest with you: the woman that I loved, I truly wanted at any moment that I was beside her. And when I wasn't with her, I dreamed of her even. A sort of wish fulfillment, I suppose.

You use a strange expression. "My wife, had I married her". How can she be your wife if you wasnt married ? I realize this is a personal question, so please do not feel compelled to answer, it is your call.

It is supposed to be saying "I love you" to someone. "I love you, and I want to be comfort to you this much." And if a husband does not mean that also, when he asks this of his wife (to be that close), then he is being selfish.
Its not supposed to say that Francis. As I said, the status quo is to have sex way before you have a meaningful interpersonal relation, way before you know that person, way before you love her/him.

What, it takes several dates to have sex, how can anyone expect sex to be an act of love ?

No, bot both events are unlikely to take place in the life of a person :P Thats the point. Worry less about things which didn't happened yet. Paralysis by analysis. When **** hits the fan, anyway, you'll find yourself pretty much unprepared despite the fact that you dwelled so much on such choices.

Of course, you also have free will.
Free will ... yes you do. You are also a slave of biology, a slave of social forces, a slave of situation.

Are you deliberately misinterpreting him? Or do you really not get the phrase?

ok so I can get her to be alone with me sometimes. what should I be doing next to "seal the deal". hand touching->body embracing->hugging etc? basically what should i do to smoothly transition into physical contact?

when we are watching movies in a theater i just can't extend my arms and grab her, but i wanna do that, how do i perform it so it seems natural?
Ok lets get back to the original sin.. er post here. Give us a little background here. Is she your friend only, your sister, your mom, your total stranger? How did you meet, what you talk about, are you friends only or there is something more going on?

Under what pretenses did she go to the movies with you, and for what reason did she come over to your house?


Dan/Francis/Dave are you guys projecting your own inner thoughts and desires here? That is sweet. Lets help these two people get laid and then condemn them for it.

I bet it's the same girl as before in his previous thread. He seems like that kind of person - the kind that peeks into your window late at night.

Yes she is the girl in my other threads.

Everytime I see her its as if I am seeing her for the very first time. Its been 5 months since I met her. The more I know about her seems like more I fall in love with her. I cry sometimes thinking about her. If this is not love then I don't know what love is.

Yes I tried to grab her hand after we got high. She jolted. Then I tried it outside my car as we were walking to the theater. I thought it would be romantic to walk hand in hand. She rejected again. Then in the movie I ask her "how many dates would this be for us" she said "there is NO us" I tried to hold her hand and she skipped one seat away. And yes it was awkward. On the way back I tried holding her hand one more time which she rejected and didn't speak a word till her house then she said "drive safe"

That is not love, it is an unhealthy obsession.

YIKES!!! Are you serious? If you're not joking, you need to seek a mental health professional.

Stay away from her. You need to understand that NO means NO.

We already established that this guy is obsessed in the last thread. He is kind of a psycho in my opinion.
SELFMADE all you have to do is stop seeing her. You'll get over her....

I don't think it is that bad. I was just with her few minutes ago. Drove her back from her work. I asked her thru txt if she wanted me to give her ride, she didn't reply so I showed up at her work anyways. I had to see her smile. It had been 4 days since I'd seen her. During these 4 days there wasn't a single moment that passed where it didn't include her. She was in a bad mood today, her bones were hurting, she said she was on shots for 6 years and stopped cus it was making her dependent on it. She got so many ailments. Can u imagine being so frail and alone, not even making minimum wage. One time we went out and she wanted to make a little scene when that bar was closing. Owner and the bouncer wanted her to leave the beer she had in her hands. She refused but I told her they're closing and we should leave. She reluctantly did. Outside she hit on my chest saying I should have protected her. Now I would do anything for her.

You're a troll.
I'm sort of thinking that too. Either that, or he's in need of help that we can't give on an online forum.

OP, please seek professional help.
