Early stages of dating a guy
Early attraction often involves the physical attributes of the partner and include things like outward appearance, body type, interests and personality traits.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.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.Both halves of a couple will notice weaknesses and differences or flaws.“Cute” habits might become irritating at this stage.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.
At this stage of the relationship, couples will take note of the differences and may even begin to complain or attempt to problem-solve.
Stage 1: Initial Meeting/Attraction Dating relationships have to start somewhere.
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.
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.
