Intense emotional connections
The word, "intimate" has long been defined by the act of intercourse, and while romance and sex are indeed an important part of intimacy, they are only a very small portion of it. The actual definition of intimacy should read, "a warm relationship between lovers that is characterized by a relaxed informality, deep understanding, vulnerability, shared empathy, and the need to be close. Other definitions may also choose to include the word 'soulmate' as a means to describe the extent of such a connection.
What is intimacy, exactly? Here's some relationship advice in the form of nine pieces of the puzzle, which, when combined, comprise the truest form of intimacy a couple could ever achieve:
The Need to be Close
The next time you and your partner discuss intimacy, don't forget that its origins go far deeper than sex. It is unfortunate that many couples fail to understand that true intimacy is a slowly developed process, intertwined by the mental, social, emotional, spiritual, and physical. Those who know this kind of intimacy, know pleasure far beyond the fleeting moments of passion between the sheets!

Autopia gives children the chance to get behind the wheel and hit the road of tomorrow.
My girl and I took a drive along the futuristic streets and crazy corners. She was supposed to take the wheel but the automobile just moved too slow! I was afraid that the driver behind us might grumble. So I had to take over.
She was amused and giggling away.
A lesson learned: Driving is not easy after all!

A life-size Buzz Lightyear greeted us as we walked into the ride.
Initially, I thought I would just accompany my girl in this ride but it turned out I was enjoying myself shooting away at the targets. I managed to score better than my girl. She was impressed and said, "How come you know how to shoot?"

Telur dadar is a flat, Indonesian omelette-style side dish usually eaten with rice, consisting of eggs pan-fried with chillies and onions.
A Thai omelette can be a kai yat sai which means literally "eggs, filled with stuffing".
An Indian Omelette is usually made with the addition of spices which vary by region. Most commonly used are finely chopped green chillies, chopped onions, coriander leaf or powder, cumin and a pinch of turmeirc, all of which are added to the egg before it is whisked.

My girl was so excited when she saw the camel for the first time. The camel was waiting to give a ride but she didn't dare to take it. Actually, it was not free, got to pay for the ride!
It stands from 1.8 to just over 2 m tall at the shoulders, and weighs from 250 to 680 kilograms. Its rope like tail is over 50 cm long.
It has large eyes on the sides of its head. Each eye is protected by long, curly eyelashes that keep out sand.
It also has a large mouth and 34 strong, sharp teeth.
The hump of a camel is mostly a lump of fat. Bands of strong tissue hold pads of fat together, forming the hump above the backbone.
A camel does not chew its food well before swallowing it. The animal's stomach has three sections, one of which stores the poorly chewed food. This food, or cud, is later returned to the mouth in a ball-like glob, and the camel chews it. The chewed food is then swallowed and goes to the other parts of the stomach to be completely digested. Camels, deer, cattle, and other kinds of animals that digest their food in this way are called ruminants.
