How can I strengthen my bond with my girlfriend without placing pressure on her for sexual intimacy?

Answer from our relationship expert:

Strengthening your bond with your girlfriend involves prioritizing emotional connection and understanding in the relationship. Start by creating a supportive and respectful environment where both partners feel safe expressing their desires, boundaries, and concerns without judgment or pressure. Focus on building trust and intimacy through meaningful conversations, shared experiences, and acts of kindness and appreciation. Explore non-sexual forms of intimacy, such as cuddling, kissing, or engaging in activities that you both enjoy. Communicate openly about your relationship goals and expectations, ensuring mutual understanding and respect. Above all, be patient, empathetic, and understanding towards your girlfriend's feelings and needs, respecting her autonomy and boundaries at all times.
