Internet dating and marriage

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.Some of those perpetual issues or differences such as free-spending or frugal, neat and orderly or sloppy and disorganized, interested in lots of time together or more involved in outside activities begin to emerge.At this stage of the relationship, couples will take note of the differences and may even begin to complain or attempt to problem-solve.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.This is also an important stage for couples to use to evaluate the relationship and their ability to be part of an emotionally intelligent relationship.Engagements can be broken much more easily and can clearly be a better decision than getting married and divorced.

At this stage, the attraction may not be too “deep” and each half of a couple is generally putting his or her best foot forward.Differences are not noticed or are dismissed with thoughts like “not a big deal” or “she will change”.Couples generally do not have much conflict at this stage of the cycle as each is really trying hard to impress the other person.Both halves of a couple will notice weaknesses and differences or flaws.“Cute” habits might become irritating at this stage.
