There are 4 predictable stages that couples experience in a dating relationship.At each stage, there is often a decision (sometimes more thoughtfully arrived at than others) to move forward or to end the relationship.Some stages take longer than others to go through and some people take much longer at each stage.Unfortunately, some people don’t fully experience and process each stage as an opportunity for personal growth or to make a healthy evaluation about the relationship or about themselves.Towards the end of this stage, and hopefully at other times throughout it, it is not unusual for questions of “is this the right person for me” to emerge.For women especially there may also be a desire to figure out where the relationship is headed.
The initial meeting may take place over the internet, through friends, in a church or social group, at a party or bar or any one of a myriad of many different places.
Different arenas for meeting allow for different opportunities to get to know each other and see if there is enough curiosity or interest to take it to the next level which would involve arranging a second or third meeting.
Stage 2: Curiosity, Interest, and Infatuation During the second stage, attraction and infatuation are most pronounced.
