The heat of the ending of summer may sap some of your romantic energies this weekend, or it may rev you up. Either way, don’t let the next couple days go by without taking time to test out this delightful intimacy tip.
Have you ever wondered just how you can get lost in someone’s eyes? When we look deeply into one another’s eyes, we cannot help but feel closer. Well it’s this fascinating thing called opia and even if you aren’t feeling intimate, it can stir up some fascinating and scintillating senses. I came across an article that outlined the precise definition:
This is the name given to the intense feeling of invasive arousal that one feels when engaging in mutual gaze—making direct eye contact with someone else. A great deal of research has been done on eye contact (see here), and it is well established that eye contact can be arousing. The arousal is often interpreted based on the circumstances. If the person is perceived as a threat, it is unpleasant. If two people are attracted to each other, it is pleasant and titillating.

So here’s your #MakeLoveMore Tip for the weekend.
Take between two and five minutes to look into one another’s eyes. At first you might feel strange, you might giggle, you might want to look away, but return your gaze to one another and look deep into the eyes. Watch the emotion in your partner’s expression as their eyes change from curiosity, to hilarity, to passion, to kindness and perhaps even overwhelming love.
Go for it. Look into one another’s eyes and see what comes next.
