(LTK): What happens when the relationship moves on to the fifth stage?(LG): Stage five is where the individuals are willing to make a long term commitment with one another.So if you and your partner are on two different pages with regard to your feelings for each other, it is best for you to be patient and wait for you partner to catch up.Doing this demonstrates to your partner that you are caring, patient and supportive. (LG): Stage three is where differences between the couple begin coming to the surface.According to Lori Gorshow, "the first two to three months in a new relationship are about getting to know a person enough to decide if you want to continue. Partly because what we experience when we first meet is attraction.
During this phase: (LTK): Once partners learn to deal with their differences, how does the relationship progress?Give into what is instead of what could or should be.Sometimes doing nothing is better than doing too much, or too little.(LG): Stage two is the romantic stage and usually lasts for two to three months.It tends to progress as follows: What is needed during this stage is to understand that without the infatuation stage a relationship could not move on to the next stage.That “click” will still be there in three months, and hopefully six, and a year, etc.And once you find that unlucky slob who will Eskimo kiss you when you’re sick, all you have to do in order to preserve your new found mutual attraction is to chill the f**k out, have faith, and not flinch. What’s more important, your insecurity and ADD or being in a relationship with the person you’re currently hanging out with?What is needed here is to come across as someone who is interesting and fun to be with.(LTK): What happens after two people decide they want to spend time together in a dating context?This allows us to begin to take off those rose-colored glasses and determine if there is more to this relationship than a lot of physical attraction." That's when a deeper connection starts to develop.Gorshow explains, "If we feel that the person we're dating shares our values, similar interests and similar views on important issues, we begin to feel a stronger connection that moves us towards wanting to be more emotionally intimate.
