Hint for one's confidant (8)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'hint' is the first definition.
(I know that intimate is a more specific form of the action hint)

'one's confidant' is the second definition.
(intimate can mean a friend of confidant)

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for intimate that I've seen before include "Bosom" , "Tip off" , "Personal - hint - friend" , "Suggest to trusted friend?" , "cosy" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
