2 years dating no commitment
Early attraction often involves the physical attributes of the partner and include things like outward appearance, body type, interests and personality traits.
At this stage, the attraction may not be too “deep” and each half of a couple is generally putting his or her best foot forward.
As intimacy develops between the two people, more self-disclosure emerges, both verbally and nonverbally as couples act in ways that are more like how they are in their daily life.
This is when the big question emerges even more strongly: “Where are we headed?
There are 4 predictable stages that couples experience in a dating relationship.
At each stage, there is often a decision (sometimes more thoughtfully arrived at than others) to move forward or to end the relationship.
The initial meeting may take place over the internet, through friends, in a church or social group, at a party or bar or any one of a myriad of many different places.
Some stages take longer than others to go through and some people take much longer at each stage.
Unfortunately, some people don’t fully experience and process each stage as an opportunity for personal growth or to make a healthy evaluation about the relationship or about themselves.
There is no need to rush through this important stage and every reason to go slowly.
Stage 4: Commitment or Engagement At this stage in a relationship, couples should have a good understanding of their partner’s values, life style, and goals for the future.
