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
I am a person who believes strongly that the "infatuation phase" doesn't HAVE to be a phase.
Society has created the whole concept, in my opinion, and it's reinforced in popular culture over and over again.
I have known a few people who seem to have about a three to six month limit on relationships. All men (though I'm not saying this is more of a man thing... but maybe?).
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.
Interesting question! I did not have many relationships and don't fear that ''infatuation phase'' I do know of someone who lives for the infatuation phase. Something that sounds fun but in the longer run does not take a relationship much further.
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
I am not one who fears the end of the infatuation phase. It can go on for however long you want it to. A relationship that is filled with love and respect for one another will never get away from this phase.

I hear people say, I fell out of love. Does that mean the feeling they were experiencing was really love or just plain old strong infatuation?
