Are you one who fears the end of the "infatuation phase" in new relationships?


Some folks are known to be "in love" with falling in love. They'll do whatever is possible to prolong keeping things light, fun, and superficial. They dread having that first "serious talk", argument/disagreement over "boundaries" or hurt feelings and expectations. In their eyes it's the beginning of watching the "magic" and (mystery) fade. For others it's the signal of a deeper loving relationship. They actually look forward to getting past the infatuation phase. And still others look forward to (relaxing) and reverting back to their "authentic selves" & no longer concerned with impressing

    Yes, if a couple is in a happy relationship it will always contain some elements of the "infatuation phase".

    wordydirds, I agree it doesn't have to be a "phase". However most people treat "the new" better than the "tried & true". Once they're (comfortable) in a new job, relationship, or whatever they "dial back" on their efforts and expect to coast.

    I think it's very common for young people in particular to loose interest in relationships once the "infatuation phase" passes. Some even feel as though they're no longer in love once a relationship becomes more mundane. No one feels giddy forever
