Consequently, this experience taught me the first three months of any relationship undoubtedly set the tone for what's to come.
When a concrete foundation is set, it brings smiles, comfort and a strong sense of friendship to the pair. According to Health.com, there's a reason we're so intrigued by this individual, to the point where we often make them our “number one” priority.
I would think they’d get it since they perform the same disappearing act when they’re seeing someone new.
Still, it’s not until I’m finally able to make more time for them that they stop acting like jealous children. While I’m not one of those eat a light salad kind of girls during a first date, I still don’t want to eat the world’s messiest burger until I’m sure he’s sticking around a while.
For the first time in years, I found someone who saw through my every insecurity.As if dating isn’t enough of a pain in the ass, starting a new relationship is even worse. I know I’m supposed to impress them too, but I’m still busy getting to know him. The moment I’m finally his girlfriend, I’m swamped with doubts and fears. I know what I’m hiding and I’d like to just get all his flaws and secrets out now versus waiting. I guess everyone thinks it’s not going to last, so they need to meet him from the moment I say I have a boyfriend. This early on, they could very well ruin the relationship. I’d love to relax and just see how things go, but no, I’m supposed to know during the first month or two what our future looks like. I don’t know if we have long term potential or how many kids we might want. There are just some things I don’t trust him enough to talk about yet.I realize this should make me happy, but the first three months of a relationship are hell. Why does it always seem to happen when I’m with my new boyfriend? I wouldn’t want them to not get their two cents in. Usually, there’s enough trust by the fourth month to be more open, but I feel like I’m walking on eggshells the first three. I’m great at being myself, but not so much at impressing people with the best me. While I might be able to relax more and more with him, I’m still in the meeting everyone he knows phase.It's like, all of a sudden, you have a sense of boosted energy — the perfect excuse to head out on a Tuesday night and a reason to look forward to starting a new day.Maybe you and your SO delve into a healthy fitness routine or your calendar is quickly filled with plans consisting of meeting the friends of your SO, which, in turn, become your friends. I think I’d rather just write up a book report of my highs, lows and need to know topics and get it all over with at one time. It seems like things start to taper off and I feel confident in the relationship by the fourth month. Those first several months are the major “getting to know you” period.But most importantly, it symbolizes accepting the love we all is ready to step up to the plate as your confidant and best friend.Throughout my single years, I stayed positive and learned the meaning of self-love and how it's the only path to lasting, healthy relationships.And through encouraging myself to accept the love I believe I deserve, these past three months have changed my life.Actually listening to my boyfriend's words and accepting his compliments have brought me a new sense of joy that friends and co-workers just aren't able to provide.
