Falling in love is both, a profound feeling and challenging, as many couples fail to pass all the five challenging stages of love. Most people get to live their relationship till stage 2 and fail on stage 3 which is the most challenging for them.
People yearn to fall for true love, at least once, in their life. The feeling to live with a person, who understands you and your emotions, is unique. Though, life takes twists and turns throughout the course, but with the right person everything seems easy and smooth.
The first two stages give you time to be a little playful and enjoy honeymoon period, however, things get real serious from stage 3. Read through all of the five challenging stages of love:
STAGE 1 IS FULL OF EXCITEMENT AND PASSION
This stage is everyone’s favorite because you don’t really care about things around and get wild about your passion and love. You attract towards a person and your hormones run wild, your heart skips beats every now and then, and your thoughts engulf with the only idea and that is staying near to that special person.
SATGE 2 IS CUTE AND CUDDLING
Late night long calls, lunch dates, meet ups in clubs and cafes, and candle light dinners alone at home, are all the fanatsies of the beginning period. But also, you start thinking about the next step, to get engaged if things are comfortable or move in together to understand each other.
STAGE 3 IS MIXED EMOTIONS
When you are going through stage 2 and entering stage 3, your emotions get mixed up as preferences are clear to each other and illusions are shattered. Earlier, many aspects are ignored but now you and your partner fall into a routine where behaviors are closely observed.
This stage is confusing for many as you start wondering about rooting up arguments and resentment between you and your partner. All that cuddling and kisses are a rare thing for you as couple, now. Perhaps, you two are taking excitement for granted which was the sole attraction for the relationship before.
You may also end up thinking that being single is more suitable than taking responisbilty of the potential relationship.
STAGE 4 IS MUTUAL ACCEPTANCE
You are seeing each other from another perspective. As natural as you can be, your struggles and problems are apparent to each other than ever before. It seemed a perfect setting for both of you to get attracted and start seeing each other but you have to climb down the pedestal and face real challenges of life together. Big challenges and decisions are ahead and you need to act wisely.
Mutual understanding and acceptance will help you to get through. You can reveal your vulnerable sides out and about without getting afraid of your partner’s reaction.
STAGE 5 IS TEAM WORK
Couples reach to this stage will last forever together. They find trust in each other and conviction to continue with this relationship while accepting strengths and weaknesses of one another. This stage proves that your companionship is based on true love and compassion.
