Want to build intimacy in your relationship with almost no effort? The “Six Second Kiss” is a concept developed by renowned relationship therapists John and Julie Gottman. According to the Gottmans, a six-second kiss, filled with intention and connection, can be a powerful ritual in a relationship. The rationale behind the “Six Second Kiss” is that it is long enough to feel intimate, but not so long that it becomes potentially inconvenient or intrusive in daily life. It’s a practice designed to foster closeness and intimacy, and to keep the romantic spark alive in a relationship. By doing this, couples can create small moments of connection and intimacy throughout their day, every day.
