9 phases of dating
Half the damn time you won't even know if you're actually dating or not. ” There are now different stages, one hardly distinguishable from the other – at least while on the inside.
(LG): The purpose of stage one is to determine if there is enough chemistry, commonality and interest to warrant dating.
You managed to black out sometime in the middle of it all and can't figure out whether the person was the best or worst sex of your life. You have officially dubbed him/her, or have been dubbed, worthy of sexual pursuit. In this stage, it isn't recommended that you refrain from calling the person or see him/her without drinking heavily or taking drugs – it may be awkward.
I mean, you've only been intimate a dozen times or so… This is the first stage when you actually matter to the person more than any other slab of meat would.
(LTK): What happens after two people decide they want to spend time together in a dating context?
(LG): Stage two is the romantic stage and usually lasts for two to three months.
