Gorshow explains, "Sometime after the three-month mark, the excitement of the relationship slows just a bit.
This allows us to begin to take off those rose-colored glasses and determine if there is more to this relationship than a lot of physical attraction." That's when a deeper connection starts to develop.
A lot goes into long-term attraction and romantic rapport. I'd wager about a month into dating someone, though, you have a decent shot at accessing what can and probably will happen in the possible LTR scenario. So you can figure out if this go in the dating arena will likely sink or swim—whether or not it's time to adjust the sail for a lengthy cruise or take a deep breath and abandon ship now.
The first few months of a relationship are often the most romantic. You don't want your new love interest to think you're trying to buy her love.
It tends to progress as follows: What is needed during this stage is to understand that without the infatuation stage a relationship could not move on to the next stage.
So if you and your partner are on two different pages with regard to your feelings for each other, it is best for you to be patient and wait for you partner to catch up.
For some people, it may take a couple of meetings to determine if they want to date a particular person.
