First stage day 1 to 5 months
This stage is very beautiful and the joy of love is only in the first stage and both people’s love is in the hike. You both are very excited to talk with each other and are very much interested to know about each other
They find an excuse to talk with each other, meet with each other and they put efforts to take time for each other. They are trying efforts to take maximum time to talk with each other.
Their limit is such that they talk for 5-6 hours, making small cute behaviour all this happens in this stage and it starts from the first day when you get in a relationship and this stage last for 2 months, 4 months, 5 months and even 7 months depending on person to person.
There is very much love and memories created in this stage. Both give too much attention to each other but both the people’s are fake they’re not real. They only talk about their positive side.
When you meet with an unknown person you only show them your positive side and not your negative side and problems so when you get in a relationship you show your positive side and your partner also shows their positive side. Both are fake but the love is real, the feeling is very different and there’s too much joy in this. Both are happy and they’re like this is love and in this, there’s too much joy, they both think of may they remain in this love forever.
In this time period, the memories which are created will give them problems in future. Every stage has different challenges but the early stage of a relationship are more challenging. Everything seems to be perfect and we often dream of marriage, date and all because dopamine is released when you’re attracted to someone
The romance which you see in movies will be experienced here. You’ll think about them most of the times. You’ll create an imaginary world in your head about marriage, dating and all as your love is in the hike
The first stage starts with an attraction. The attraction and love are at its peak. In the starting of a relationship, you stalk their social media accounts checking dp, bio, status and all. If that particular person is on Instagram or Facebook then you’ll like he’s /her posts and commenting on the post.
All the relationships are unique but the stages which all the relationship pass through it are the same. You don’t focus on the flaws in the starting of a relationship. You only see the positive side. As time passes by you both try to understand each other by having a long conversation and talking about likes and dislikes.
A relationship needs lots of work. You have to work together to make it a successful relationship.
Second stage 5 months to 1.5 years
This stage is crucial for a relationship, till now both people were fake and now both the people are real and that’s why it’s hard for them to accept the reality. In this stage, you’ll start to see flaws of that person.you’re still in love but you don’t see your partner that great as they were in stage 1.
There’s a need for both of them to adjust, because of adjustment many fights happen between each other. There will be ups and downs, but you’ve to stuck with your partner through it all. Conflicts occur and they talk less with each other compared to earlier.
The joy of love seems to disappear as time passes. Both regret of getting into a relationship. Both think that if they were single then they will be happier, why love happens and why I’ve found this person. They both regret these things. In this time period, mostly sad moments happens.
Mostly cheating happens in this stage. Most of the breakups occur in this time period. Those who can’t adjust in this stage their relationship ends and those who have adjusted their relationship goes into the third stage.
In the case relationship ends, both seem to be like unknown with each other and hate each other. More the love more the hate in the case where the relationship ends. There will be some fights and arguments. This is the stage where a relationship will make it or break it.
This stage is tough, but with patience and faith you can go through it. The time period of stage 2 is a doubting phase. If the doubt is more then the relationship is near to end. If there are very few or no doubts then there is a chance of a long term relationship. There will be some challenges in a relationship but both have to understand each other well otherwise the relationship will end.
Third stage 1.5 years up to marriage
This stage is very peaceful and both adjust with each other well. They both accept each other’s real nature. You’ve chosen to be with your partner and accepting the person as they are. They both look to serve others, they are like a good team.
Mostly the relationship doesn’t come into this time period because the breakup has happened in the second stage. Both of them have become unknown to each other so this time period doesn’t come in most of the relationship.
Earlier this stage comes after 1.5 or 2 years after coming into a relationship but in today’s digital world and growing social media sites and involvement in phone our love has become virtual so mostly this stage doesn’t come and if it comes then it will come after 3-4 years.
There is very less chance of breakup in this stage. It’s not like that breakup doesn’t happen in this time period but there is very less chance because there are fewer chances of cheating in a relationship. More chances of a long relationship. Till marriage, this stage goes, in a case due to parents if marriage, doesn’t happen then this relationship ends. But this relationship stage goes very long.
The love for each other will always be there in the heart. Both will respect each other. Nowadays there is very less chance of this stage to happen because of social media and also breakup happens even after 4-5 years so try to get into this third
No matter what stage you are in, always remain respectful with your loved one. Be respectful even during a disagreement or argument
