The relationship still feels fresh and exciting, and you're constantly learning new things about each other and having first experiences together. That person that was so exciting a few short months ago is suddenly there every day.But there comes a point when suddenly you've done all that stuff together already. And it feels like they've been there every day for an awfully long time. Your girlfriend is boring and flawed, and that girl you don't know is probably perfect and exciting.Then you begin to feel like you're in the womb all cosy and safe. Once you begin to wake up from the dream, you get some clarity: 'Oh, he leaves the cap off the toothpaste' or 'Oh no, she's dumping me for her friends'.You make initial decisions about how you've searched for this perfect person all your life. Suddenly his jokes aren't funny and you begin to worry that the hasty wedding might have been a little reckless.Whether you’ve just started dating, are committed to each other or have already tied the knot, there is one topic that will keep coming up again, and again and again: money. Whether you’ve just started dating, are committed to each other or have already tied the knot, there is one topic that will keep coming up again, and again and again: money. Others say let’s keep chivalry alive and let the man pay, regardless. But there are money questions you should ask — and signs to be aware of — that can help you navigate each stage of your relationship and ensure that you’re both on the same path, whether the relationship lasts two months or ‘til death do you part. But there are money questions you should ask — and signs to be aware of — that can help you navigate each stage of your relationship and ensure that you’re both on the same path, whether the relationship lasts two months or ‘til death do you part. Some say whoever did the “ask” should pay for the date.
While some people make their intentions known and agree to becoming exclusive at a certain point, others go with the flow with the hope that they’ll become his or her one and only, even before becoming Facebook official. While some people make clean breaks with their ex, others still have occasional contact.
It's not rigid but there are many aspects that most of us recognise. Your head is filled with crashing thoughts about nothing except her.
Hormones thrash around the brain and all logic is thrown out the window.
When someone is really into you and has made you their steady squeeze, they won’t be hiding you and will be proud to show you off. When couples start to talk about vacations, holiday plans, or even booking theatre tickets months out, you’ll know you’re more than just a plus one for an office party. Sure some people easily say “I love you” for sex, but if you’re together five or more nights a week, talk and text every day, and they profess their love for you, chances are they mean it. They brag about you and introduce you to their friends. When you’re in an exclusive relationship, just being together cuddling, watching television, or spooning at night shows how comfortable they are in having you in their life. While some people aren’t quick to change their relationship status until they’re engaged or married, if their Facebook page includes multiple photos of the two of you embraced as a couple, it sends a message to friends and others that they are taken and proud of it. Rather than being sneaky about it, they will feel comfortable enough in your relationship to tell you about it, rather than sneaking into another room to respond to the text. If they’re playing the field, all the singles will know it’s their birthday and will want to be by their side. Not every day is filled with hearts, bells, and whistles. From a toothbrush to an extra set of panties and makeup, when your sweetie carves out a place in their closet or bathroom for you and vice versa, you’ll know it’s serious.
Most people don’t say “I love you” until they really mean it. When someone doesn’t look at you as temporary, they’ll let you know if their plans include possibly living together, marriage, and will want to make sure you know that you’ll be together for events and holidays months down the line. Your Facebook page includes photos of the two of you. When either of you hears from an ex and it makes you uncomfortable, you’ll both realise you’re not open to possibilities with them and won’t want to lose what you’ve got. If the two of you hold hands in public, even in front of business associates and family, signs of affection will show the world you’re taken. They spend their birthday and Valentine’s with YOU.
That means that it takes people by surprise, causing many to mistake the end of the honeymoon period for the end of their entire relationship, to mistake the loss of excitement for the loss of love.
