2. The “get to know you” phase
This is the stage where he can do nothing wrong in your eyes and vice versa. It is a perfect world full of excitement, questions and firsts.
3. Being inseparable
The timid world of texting, flirting and playing the dating game comes to an end and the two of you are now inseparable. You don’t have to call him on Monday to reserve Saturday night – you both know you will be spending every waking minute together. When you aren’t together, you keep the distance short by texting non-stop.
4. Saying “I love you”
You have said the words in your head a hundred times and you both know the feeling is mutual, so saying it out loud shouldn’t change the relationship, but it does. It is a verbal commitment to one another. You no longer have to wonder where you stand with each other. You know when you call him randomly, he wants to talk to you. The guessing game is over and, and whether you’ve been together for months or even years, this is when the real commitment begins.
5. Have a momentary freak out
After being together for a while, a comfortable routine sets in. You can predict their emotions and reactions to basically all events. You can’t remember life without the other person, but you start to question whether this is the right path for the rest of your life.This is natural. You might have a talk, or a fight, or take a break or buy a puppy, but whatever your freak out is, afterwards you’ll realize that he completes you and don’t want anything else.
