Dating after three months
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.
I stand a bit taller and my steps are bolder, not because I didn't have any self-confidence before, but because the moment I realized someone saw the exact value in me that I see in myself, I felt special.
If you ignore a lack of physical chemistry after a 3 month relationship, it’s unlikely to get any better down the road, so it’s worth seriously considering whether this is the best partner for you long-term if passion is something you want in your future. Some of his behaviors may have given you a flash of worry at moments, but you’re hoping they can be swept under the rug because he’s so perfect in other ways. It’s much better to face these things head on now and see how he responds to an honest conversation than it is to leave these red flags and wait for them to become relationship-threatening later on. Maybe it’s not time to sit down and talk about marriage and kids, but you should at least have an idea that you’re both roughly on the same page as far as the future is concerned. These are all things that you shouldn’t be afraid to discuss, at least so you know by 3 months if this is something that should last much longer – it might feel a little awkward, but you’ll feel much better knowing where you stand rather than putting it off for another day, so don’t be shy: if in doubt, talk about it!
Make sure you have some of the big conversations: does he want a serious long-term commitment?
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.
It’s the last thing you want to think about after 3 months of dating.
Chances are, you’re 100% in the love-struck honeymoon phase.
I won’t go far as to see you should be constantly wanting to get naked and down to sweaty, passionate lovemaking every 2-3 hours, but you should feel a unique sexual attraction with this guy, something that makes you truly desire each other over anyone else. You may at this point see his carelessness, or his inability to stick to his word, or his weird moods as something that can be changed.
You're taking in the smell of his cologne and what it feels like to wear his sweatshirt to sleep for the first time.
But most importantly, it symbolizes accepting the love we all is ready to step up to the plate as your confidant and best friend.
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.
Basically, the benefits go way beyond the surface of romantic dates and “good morning” texts.
