Dating for 6 months
I remember naively thinking things like that in my early twenties, but that’s another story.I’ve also had friends meet and move in with someone within several months – waaaaay too quick in my opinion – only to later realize this person wasn’t exactly who they portrayed themselves to be.(LTK): What do people need to know about the first stage of dating?(LG): The purpose of stage one is to determine if there is enough chemistry, commonality and interest to warrant dating. The reason why more people aren’t ending up in wildly enthusiastic relationships is simply due to one thing: they’re not getting out of bad relationships soon enough.They stay in something “ok” for months and even years on end, preferring the safety of mediocrity to the angst of loneliness.A part of me believes I should know how it is going and shouldn't need for her to validate our affection. Again, I really want to hear if my concerns are normal, if I should discuss what I've mentioned above with my gf, and if my concerns are damaging the relationship. It's extremely difficult to maintain a genuine, mature relationship when you only meet on weekends. Lasting relationships require effort and attention. That doesn't exactly sound like what is happening in yours. And you know that, at least for now, you have a forward.
When you recognize what stage of dating the relationship is in, you will understand what is called for or needed in order to move through that stage and onto the next stage.: It does take time to get to know all of the different facets of a person.We can all put our best foot forward in the beginning – but how long can we keep that up?In the end, they fail to make space in their lives for the right person because there’s no room.In the creative arts, there is a saying: “Good is the enemy of great.” And I’d say the same applies to relationships. If you’re not saying aloud (or at least to yourself) “I love you” to your mate in 6 months or less, hit the “next” button.
