poly dating site - The stages of dating
Some couples can stay together for a long time if the man hands over his power to the woman.However, what happens is that she loses respect for him and gradually stops feeling attracted to him, and then falls out of love with him.
They don’t put in the effort anymore to make each other feel attracted and they start to take each other’s love, attraction and commitment for granted. They were still in love and it was starting to deepen.
The relationship then goes from working to boring, and then to falling apart. They’re just kind of like friends, roommates, housemates and it’s quite boring. It’s not the blissful love type of relationship that you experience at stage five. So, let’s assume that the man was able to get past the power struggle stage, he got the relationship to working and they remained in love. At that point in a relationship, it makes total sense to the man and the woman to commit to each other.
Either the man or the woman will start thinking about cheating or leaving because they just don’t feel like they’re in love anymore. The love, respect and attraction between him and her started to deepen. What most couples do at that point is they either commit to having a relationship and staying together for life but not getting married, or they get engaged and married.
If they haven’t already moved in together, they do that.
When they first moved in together or they got engaged, or they got married, it all felt great.
However, over time, the relationship started to fall apart.To get past the power struggle stage, you need to make sure that you are in the position of power.What a woman really wants is for a man to be in the position of power (even though she will rarely, if ever admit that in public because she doesn’t want men to get the wrong idea and start bossing her around and thinking that it will make her want sex or a relationship).So, in the lust and romance stage of a relationship, which is otherwise known as the dating phase, the man and woman will experience a dump of natural chemicals in their brain; chemicals like dopamine, oxytocin, phenylethylamine, and norepinephrine.The thing is most Hollywood movies show this stage of a relationship as being the peak of a relationship.The couple is happy, they kiss, they walk off into the sunset, they’re so happy together, and everything is just great.
