Romantic intimacy is a warm closeness a man and woman share together on an emotional level as they love each other as husband and wife.
This is clearly shown (as mentioned earlier) in Song of Songs (see 4:9-10).
Your guide in these issues is the Scriptures not your conscience.
Your conscience is not a reliable guide since it is part of your "heart" which is fallen. Then, it must be okay." The conscience is never your primary guide to right and wrong, the Word of God is.
It is also the path to physical and sexual intimacy. Romantic feelings should be based on a solid foundation of love and concern for each other.
In spite of this, Noah who was a righteous man had only one wife and was faithful to her (Gen.6:1, 18). “Sexual immorality” is a very general expression that can include adultery in it. Rom. says not to provide yourself an opportunity for the flesh to lust. What is translated “sexual relations" is literally "uncover nakedness." Uncovering another's nakedness outside of marriage is sexual immorality.
Also, this kind of situation can stimulate sexual desires either directly or by building romantic intimacy before marriage.
A man and woman physically sleeping in the same bed is an intimate experience.
It is by its very nature any physical contact, which stimulates a sexual response in either participant (even if nakedness is not uncovered).
Sexual intimacy is not just an act, it is a whole process of developing physical intimacy.
