A qualtitative researchmethod, interviewing 6 collegestudents was performed. Respondents statements forms the main empirical material, statements whch subsequently was ananlysed from theory. Theoretical choices are Anthony Giddens concepts of the pure relationship and confluent love. Further theoretical choices makes Georg Simmels concepts of exchange, dyad and intimacy. Finally David Morgans 'doing perspective' and dimensional proposal on the concept of intimacy forms an important theoretical choice. Important conclusions are that intimacy in friendship and love relationships is practised by revealing private emotions, thoughts and earnest sides of ones self.

Secondary findings was that intimacy appeared to be a gendered practice and also that mutualness and the dyad formed social significances for practices og intimacy to be built upon.
