Early stages of dating relationships
I want to preface this by saying that although there are no typical couples, there do tend to be intimacy stages in a relationship.
Many people struggle to get past the first few dates with someone new because they fail to realize one very important fact about any romantic relationship: It is alive.
Okay, not literally–but it might as well be, for how sensitive it is to subtle fluctuations in the conditions it needs to thrive.
However, just because our section of the world – here in North America – is more willing to accept that women enjoy sex, too!
It doesn’t mean that we should toss sex around like a bottle of wine on ladies’ night.
Grief and intimacy seem to be made of the same fabric — the intensity, the dullness, the gains, and the loss all mirror one another. Hormones and logic rarely coincide, so we find ourselves doing things like checking email 12-24 times an hour, not eating, going to get our nails done at midnight, buying pajamas to match our bedsheets…Infatuation makes your dopamine levels soar, producing a full-body euphoria that causes humans to seek out sex again and again.
