Dating mating and relating how to build a healthy relationship
Click the button below and start your journey to a rock-solid, truly happy romantic partnership.
One possibly counterintuitive indicator of a potential match is one's sense of self.
The need for human connection appears to be innate—but the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned.
Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact.
If you dive too deep, too fast with a potential romantic partner, the fun quickly disappears and you begin to “work out issues” with someone who is, in reality, a stranger. The Relating stage usually lasts about two years before you can realistically decide to become life partners.
This is the stage were you work out your differences, build a solid foundation for healthy problem solving and co-create an easy, loving partnership.
