Moving Beyond Infatuation Of course, not every relationship moves beyond infatuation - and infatuation doesn't last very long. Or for my no-nonsense girls, maybe you give a man three months to decide. And you will never be happy with her while your thoughts are elsewhere. For some people the fear of their partner wanting to socialize without them, triggers feelings of insecurity, or fear of an imminent ending to the relationship. Trust me when I say that change is on the way.

There is no comfort zone in the first few months, as couples begin to adjust to each other and deal with new habits and moods. If there is a connection, the couple will naturally move toward dating exclusively. If the relationship survives the honeymoon period unscathed, you can rejoice. For example, there is no need to inform you that if your girlfriend has a slew of annoying habits after six months, the situation will not improve.

For others, this means being in a monogamous relationship. Doing this demonstrates to your partner that you are caring, patient and supportive. Rare is the occasion when we subject our partner to the problems that transpire throughout an average day. We shield them because we are afraid of being a burden.

Either way, it gives him options, not an ultimatum. Beware of the wandering eye syndrome.
