Getting into a new relationship is like getting tickets to a destination that you know nothing about. It’s exciting yet nerve-wracking.
Think of your relationship as a train or bus that is taking you and your date or significant other on a trip, and during this trip, there are five stops. If one of you no longer enjoys the trip and gets off on one of the five stops, the trip ends midway.
The first five stages of a relationship are like that and every couple goes through them before they decide to spend the rest of their lives together through thick and thin.
When you’re new to a relationship, you feel somewhat nervous, excited, uncertain, or even disappointed if it doesn’t turn out as you anticipated. Regardless, to get to the next stage, you have to successfully pass the previous stage which gets more and more challenging.
