The term proximity is often used as another word for the term closeness. Proximity is a noun which refers to the state, quality, fact or sense of being near or next.

Thus it has come to mean the property of (something or someone) being close together. A synonym for the term proximity is the word propinquity. However, propinquity could also be used to mean kinship or simply similarity in nature. The related term proximate, has come to mean 'immediately preceding or following'. The word proximate could also mean very near or close. It could also be used to mean imminent or soon forthcoming.

The term is Middle English; coming from the Old French term proximite; from the Latin term proximitas; from the word proximus, meaning nearest.
