I am going to be as open and honest with you as I can be. Most people who take the Relationship Intimacy Test do so because something is missing in their relationship. They know that things are off or missing in their relationship, but they don’t know what to do. Usually, those who complete the test want more out of their relationship. They are tired of feeling lonely. They are tired of fighting. They are looking, even begging for change.
If you are like most people, you quickly looked through your results searching for ideas on how to fix the problem. Truly, I wish it was that easy. For the past twenty years I have studied relationships. I have watched couples thrive and others fail. My desire has been to know what truly makes relationships great. I want you to understand this key point, I don’t want to just help “fix” the problems in your relationship, I want to help you make your relationship great.
Let me share with you what I have discovered over the past 20 years as I have watched, studied, and met with thousands of couples. Here are the primary steps I suggest you consider taking:
Step #1: Review Your Test Results
I know you want your relationship to improve. That’s why you took the relationship test. That’s why you are here on this page. But let me give it to you straight, you don’t know what to do. You want to know how to stop fighting and arguing. You want to know why your spouse does what he/she does. You don’t understand why you can’t get along like you did earlier in your relationship.
So here’s my first recommendation: Review your test results. Look specifically at the sections where it suggests you “Need Improvement” or “Need Significant Improvement.” In each section, you will find a part that says, “Ideas for Improvement.” Once you have reviewed your results, make a plan to implement the suggestions. Then track your progress over time. You will likely discover that there are some issues that you do not know to to resolve. If this is the case, consider taking one of the next three steps.
Step #2: Watch “Finding and Creating Relationship Intimacy”
When couples have problems, there are always reasons. I often say that they are stuck in the muck and don’t know how to get out. If you are going to make the changes necessary to have a great relationship, you have to get to the root of the problem. In our video series, Finding and Creating Relationship Intimacy, you will discover:
- The Root of Your Intimacy Problems
- 5 Reasons Why You’re Living Below Your Intimacy Potential
- Beginning Steps to Creating Intimacy
- 3 Things You Can Do Today to Create Intimacy in Your Relationship
These videos can be found in the Relationship Intimacy Basic Plus Package and provides individuals and couples key insights into the root of their problems and then provides suggestions on how to get started in creating a more intimate relationship.
Step #3: Watch “5 Ways to Heal Relationship Fractures”
Unresolved problems create relationship fractures. These fractures, if not addressed, will lead to conflict, fighting, loneliness, addiction, and
other problems. Sadly, when couples get stuck in their problems, they turn away from each other rather than towards one another.
In 5 Ways to Heal Relationship Fractures you will learn:
- The True Impact of Relationship Fractures on Relationships
- How to Infuse Hope into Your Relationship
- 5 Ways to Heal Relationship Fractures
Regarding this powerful class, one participant wrote me and said, “My husband and I started the video course today about relationship fractures. So far it has been very helpful as it is specifically addressing the exact place we are at in our relationship. Thank you!”
Step #4: Watch “Six Steps to Creating Intimacy in Your Relationship”
In step one, we helped you identify the key issues you need to work through (see your test results). In step two, we helped you identify root problems so you could eliminate the challenges that prevent intimacy. In step three, we focused on resolving fractures in your relationship. Now, in step four, it is time to discover the six types of intimacy that can drastically improve your marriage.
If you are ready to resolve the issues that have hurt your relationship and then apply the six types of intimacy, I invite you to join me in this step by step process to improve your relationship.
