So i need some clarity on just what is considered intimate conversation.

I do not think it is about the movie of the week. So everyone has a different description of it.

Still, i need some hints....

Can you give an idea of a topic?

"intimate conversation" from where I come from is generally physical or emotional in nature...it can also not be either and just be two people sitting quietly in a room and gabbing.

It can be about many things and in many settings.

like anything, what you consider intimate is what matters. for me ...

anything sexual

marriage issues

complaints about spouse

any topic that is geared towards gaining/giving emotional support between non friends of the M.

any topic/conversation that could not be shared with a spouse.

to me "intimate" is something shared exclusively between two people. just because something isn't necessarily inappropriate, doesn't mean it's not intimate imo.

“Intimacy reflects the way we are involved with each other. It is not measured. It is nurtured and by its nature requires two people. The deepest intimacy is achieved at the highest cost of opening our lives completely to another. Intimacy means we become vulnerable and transparent enough to allow another to touch us at the deepest level of our beings.
Intimacy results from sharing ourselves with our spouse fully and deeply. This means honestly sharing who we are emotionally, intellectually, physically and spiritually.
Intimacy creates within us a desire to listen and to be heard, to understand to be understood, to cherish and to be cherished, to value and to be valued, to care for and nurture and to be cared for and nurtured.”

On 2nd thought, what I originally posted here isn't much help.
