If you want to build a strong and lasting relationship, start with hugs and kisses. Ask any close couple, and they will tell you how important these two simple acts of affection are. They bind the heart and make a couple feel closer. Such physical closeness makes us generate the love hormone called oxytocin, which increases our sense of attachment and affection. A hug alone is the most important as it heightens one's well-being and sense of security and will make your significant other feel special, which will deepen the feelings of love. A kiss, on the other hand, is an expression of desire and intimacy, and will make your partner feel adored. And when your love feels the heat and intensity of your hug and kiss, passion will also heighten. Have you had a fight? The best way to forgive and move on is with a simple, warm hug and kiss as it creates positive energy. For all of these reasons and many more, never miss an opportunity to give the one you love a hug and kiss as these simple acts of love will give you a happier, healthier, and more loving relationship.
