Starting a new relationship is often powerful.  When you are starting a new relationship, you will experience attractiveness, courting, frustration, solidity, and devotion.

When you first start to date someone, you will often feel a connection with them that is strong. You may even feel that you want to spend most of you time with that person.  It can be a rewarding time in your life. 

New relationships are never the same.  No two relationships are exactly alike. Therefore, your relationship will have the tendency to either move fast or slow.  Sometimes you will want to move the relationship forward and other times in reverse. 

When you first meet someone that are you attracted to, you will feel “head over heels for them”.  You will often think about them in a romantic way.  Perhaps you will start to think about kissing them or having them sleeping with you. 

You may want to wake up to them in the morning. This is known as the honeymoon stage. You are just getting to know the person and you do not know any of their faults you.  You just know that you are attracted to them and want to date to see where things go.

Your relationship together will start to feel “fireworks” at first.  It is more intense if the two of you feel the same sexual attraction for one another.  It can feel like you are flying to the moon for the first time. 

It is important to spend quality time together so that you can see them for more than what you see on the outside.  Getting to know someone is when you can really see if you will work in a relationship. 

After dating for a few weeks, you will begin to see the person for who they are.  That first time sexual spark will start to wear off.  You may flaw in them that you did not see before your infatuation started.  It will be hard to imagine yourself bonding with someone for various reasons. 

When you are in a stage in which you start to see a person’s flaws, you may start thinking that they are not for you. However, they may be your soulmate as well. Learning more about one another is going to be a task and often takes months to learn. 

During this stage, you will find that the two of you sleep together a lot less than when you first met. Lust often does not last but a few weeks. Eventually, you will feel that your lust is not burning as much as it once did.

Some couples think that just because the passionate lust has worn off, the connection is dying as well. However, nothing can be further from the truth.  New relationships always start off with high levels of lust and then start to fade as the weeks pass by. 

After dating for a while, you will begin experiencing arguments and problems in the relationship.  Perhaps you want him/her to text you more and they will not.  Maybe you are tired of paying for the meal when you go out to eat and want your partner to pitch in a little bit. 

Everyone needs to work on their communication with other people.  It is important to work on interaction.  You will find that it is not always easy to talk about sensitive topics that are on your mind and theirs.  It can be a tough time.

You will come to realize that the two of you do need to have trust and active listening happening between the two of you.  It is important for you to look at your life and see where you want things to go.  Do you want to eventually live together or marry?  This is a question that you will need to ask yourself. It is something that you will have to learn about at this stage. 

After dating one another for a while, it is important to start talking about marriage, living together and the future of your relationship. Will you stay together or move on from the relationship?

It is important to make your relationship as stable as possible.  The two of you must come to a decision that will work for the both of you.  Are you going to stay together and make the relationship work or decide to see other people?  These are important decisions to make. 

The two of you have been dating for a while now and have seen each other’s good and bad sides.  If you can still want to be with the person after learning their faults, you have made it thus far and ready for a deeper commitment.  Few couples ever make it to this stage.

There will come a point that you will have to make a commitment towards one another. The two of you must decide whether marriage is in the cards for you. Are you going to date other people anymore or will your relationship be exclusive?

What Should You Avoid In A New Relationship?

When you are in a new relationship, you should avoid arguing at all costs.  Arguing only means that you have poor communication.  A conversation should be one person listening and the other person talking.  Psychologists call this “active listening”.  This was invented by Psychologist Carl Jung.

If you start to scream at one another, this often leads to one person walking out of the room.  It can also lead to a breakup or divorce.  It is probably one of the worst stages in which your relationship will go through. 

You should also establish the best times for romance. Often, new relationships go through a stage in which you do not know how to spend time with one another.  Are you spending too much or too little time together? 

Avoid being to clingy.  If you text someone to much, it can make them feel like you are trying to stalk them.  Make sure that they want to receive your texts.  It is nice to let someone know that you are thinking about them. However, there is such a thing as it being too much. 

How Do You Start A Relationship With A Guy?

If you want to start a relationship with a guy, it is important to flirt with him a lot.  Guys like attention just as much as women do.  Many guys are shy and are afraid to tell you that they feel attracted to you. 

Take your time
Take The Relationship Slow. No Need To Rush.

At first, it is a good idea to ask him to hang out with you.  You can start out by getting his phone number or social media account information.  Make sure that you only text him one time. You do not want to keep “blowing up his phone” with text messages that will only cause him to be upset. 

It is important for you to think about what you want in your life. It is going to be something that works out well for you. In the long run, you are going to feel that things come together for you in a good way.  

You can ask him to hang out with you a few times. Ask him out for dinner or to watch a movie with you.  If he says yes, then it is a good thing. You are going to find that when the two of you are hanging out, you may want to start kissing and holding hands. 

Do not force yourself on him.  Make sure that he is wanting what you are.  If he kisses you back or goes to hold your hand, he is interested in you romantically.

This is the first step to starting a relationship with a guy. You should see him for a few weeks to see where things go.  If he keeps showing interest, ask him how he feels about you.

How Long Should You Date Before Moving In?

Before moving in together, you need to realize the risks. For starters, you will be living like a married couple without the paperwork.  If he/she is used to having their own space every day, you need to let them have it. 

Your relationship will quickly turn into disaster if you are on top of one another all day. It can be rather difficult to maintain living that closely together if you like your own privacy. 

There is no right time to move in together. In fact, some people do it within just a couple of weeks of knowing one another and have felt that it was the right thing to do.  Others have done it after a couple of years of dating and when they moved in together, they broke up. 

The fact of the matter is that you are going to learn a lot about one another when you live together. It is easy to date and see one another when you are just dating.

You both are always at your best when you spend time with one another. When you move in together, you see one another at your best and worst.  You might be a snappy dresser and clean looking.  However, when you live together, he/she may find out that you are a slob.

Perhaps you leave wet towels all over the bathroom floor or do not wash the dishes. There can be many reasons as to why your relationship is going to fail.  It can feel rather devastating.  It can be a hard decision to stay together after you live with one another. 

Many couples find that living together brings them into marriage. They have tested the waters with one another and are now ready to make the final step in having a wedding

How Often Should You See Someone You’re Dating?

Dating can be a lot of fun.  When you find someone that you are attracted to, it makes perfect sense to want to see them all the time. After all, you are less lonely when you are spending time with someone that you can car about forever.

Dating coaches suggest that you should spend no more than 2 days a week with someone that you are starting to date.  In this way, you give the relationship time to grow naturally.  You do not want to rush into spending to much time together.

Often, couples that spend a lot of time together often find out that they argue more often. It is because you get to know one another quickly and zoom past the honeymoon stage. Often, couples will text or talk on the phone even when they are not together. The relationship can get rather boring over time. 

Shortening the time that the two of you spend together allows the relationship to have some mystery. You get to think about one another during the week and miss one another.  As the saying goes, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” is true. 

Before spending a lot of time together, you need to see who needs more space in the relationship first.  You can send the person that you are dating a text to see if they respond.  If they do, that is good news. It means that they want to talk to you and carry on a conversation. 

Check to see if they text you first as well.  If you always must be the one reaching out, it means that they are not into you.  You are not on their mind enough and this could mean trouble.  They may even have a boyfriend/girlfriend. 

Once you have been dating for two months or more, you can start spending around four days a week with one another.  This is because you want to learn a little bit more about the person than you did before.  You will learn if they are someone that you want to take a bigger step with.  A bigger step could be living together or marriage.

You do not want to see one another 7 days a week during dating because it is like being married.  It can kill the relationship completely if the two of you feel like you get on each other’s nerves. If you see and talk to one another 7 days a week, the person that you are dating may want to call the relationship quits. They may ask you to take a break. 

How Do You Act In The Beginning Of A New Relationship?

It is important to be yourself at the start of a relationship.  Never be someone that you are not. If you act overly friendly and yet you are not that way, he/she will catch on quickly to who you are after a couple of weeks. 

Your true personality will come out within a couple of months.  Therefore, never portray yourself to have another personality than you normally do. If you do, then the relationship can quickly end.  Nobody likes to be played. Everyone wants to date someone that is real. 

Being yourself means that you have confidence in who you are as a person. It is okay to not have things working out between the two of you at first. That is all part of being in a relationship. 

It is important to learn more about yourself and who you are as a person.  The more “real” that you are, the better. It is important to be as loving as you possibly can be. 

Is The Beginning Of A Relationship The Hardest?

The beginning of a relationship is the easiest part.  You are just getting to know one another.  It becomes harder as you get to know one another more.  You will eventually have to talk about things such as living together and marriage.

Tough issues happen the longer you stay together. In marriage, they become even harder. You will experience a lot of ups and downs daily.  It will be up to you to better the relationship or not.

You will come to realize that the two of you will have to make a lot of compromises if you are to make your relationship stay together forever.  It will be a hard situation for you and at times, you will feel like giving up.

Most marriages end within the first 5 years. If you can make it beyond that, it means that you have learned a lot about patience, true love, and reality. 

Do Intense Relationships Last?
