I have always told people that what will make a relationship lasts forever is not only in the number of sweet words you say to one another; at times, when you touch your partner, and you hold them very close, a feeling of deep intimacy will start growing.
Deep intimacy is needed between two partners because that is the only thing that will make you feel incomplete without them; you'll always want them by your side. I have read, and I have heard from people saying when two partners cuddle a lot, it makes them feel better and happier.
It will interest you to know that a lot of women prefer cuddling to sex. Sex is just for a limited time, but you can embrace your partner affectionately and stay like that for several hours, especially during the cold period. When you cuddle your wife, you can go deeper by kissing her, and you can equally run your hands on her skin.
Many people only think cuddling is just one of the things that people who are in a relationship should be doing to one another. While this is quite right, there are other benefits of cuddling to both parties. Cuddling is a sign of intimacy. Apart from the fact that cuddling makes you more romantic and attractive to your partner, it also increases the emotional connection between both parties. To be frank, here, we all missed this old time when we would carelessly sleep on our mother's back and enjoyed the warmness.
In the same vein, when you cuddle your friend or partner, especially during cold time, you are indirectly providing comfort for one another. Aside from this, it has been researched that a substance known as Oxytocin is produced when someone kisses, hugs, or cuddles you. This hormone makes you feel good mentally. Another thing is that when you cuddle your partner, you feel accepted and loved.
