The Oxford dictionary defines the word intimacy as a ‘close familiarity or friendship’. The most important factor that helps develop intimacy is communication. It is only after a period of successful communication that one realizes the depth of his/her relationship. And this communication can be in any form – it could be verbal, non-verbal or simply gestures.

Times have changed and so have the means of communication…

There was a time when only face-to-face or written communication existed. The telephone was a leap ahead in the field of distant communication. In today’s world the means of expressing oneself are so varied and full of options that at times one is confused as to which means to use. Most of the time, this choice is driven by the level of intimacy.
