Being clear about your love for someone else will take you deeper than imaginable. Assume nothing and communicate all the time. If you have to initiate risking something sensitive then try it because if your wrong, you may fall harder or you may feel like you just won the lotto.
Feelings change so be clear at all times and look out for your love. Simplicity goes a long way.
It's not so much what you say but how you say it and how much you really mean it. Start with yourself and practice your skills of intimacy. It may be the best thing you ever do when it comes to communicating your true desires.
