The dating process
To give you a better overall experience, we want to provide relevant ads that are more useful to you.For example, when you search for a film, we use your search information and location to show the most relevant cinemas near you.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.Each person needs to listen to their own inner voice and wisdom.It is important to talk over their thoughts and feelings with their partner while finding ways to keep from “pushing” for commitment.There is no need to rush through this important stage and every reason to go slowly.
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.
There are 4 predictable stages that couples experience in a dating relationship.
At each stage, there is often a decision (sometimes more thoughtfully arrived at than others) to move forward or to end the relationship.
As intimacy develops between the two people, more self-disclosure emerges, both verbally and nonverbally as couples act in ways that are more like how they are in their daily life.
This is when the big question emerges even more strongly: “Where are we headed?
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.
