LOL This one was funny! 
I think we do pretty good. Sex is ok (still working out my post baby hormones), we laugh a lot together, do things together and have moments where we just sit together and enjoy the company.

I agree totally.

Quoting LindaClement:

I actually don't really agree with the items the 'expert' picked out as the key issues.

I don't think whether or not you fantasize about others is related to intimacy, anymore than how many times a week you're having at it... there are far more important aspects of mutual vulnerability and trust than gettin' it on, and who you're thinking about when you think about it.

How much you laugh together is a personality type issue --again, not what I think of as intimacy.

This is all kind of surfacy stuff, I don't think touches what real intimacy involves.

We have no problem laughing together and sharing fantasies together. I'm just glad I didn't have to answer how many times we have sex per week :/ lol
