There are basically stages of love and indeed only few cross the 3rd stage and hats off to them who really do, because love starts with that warm feeling and eventually it is understanding a different person, accepting all their flaws and still being in love with them.
Come, let’s go through the five stages of love. Hold on, don’t give up here atleast before reaching the fifth stage.
Stage 1 – Falling in Love
Benjamin Franklin has once rightly said, “Admiration is the daughter of ignorance.”. Attraction is indeed the first stage of the love, here you identify all qualities in him and tick them on your list.
Believing that “love is forever”
It is important that here that one should not fall head over heels in love, blindly, because this is the stage when we are flying high in the thoughts of that person. Let me warn you girls, all that glitters is not gold.
Stage 2 – The Couple
When you become a couple, love deepens and you spend hours cuddling and kissing, It is largely satisfying, though you don’t have lot of sex.
You feel safe, cared for…
Cherished and appreciated. There is a thought that this is the ultimate level of love, but, are unaware the turnaround stage 3 is to bring to the relation. Watch out girls !
Stage 3 – Beginning of the End!
This is that stage when everything seems to go actually wrong. Just like when a switch is flipped all on a sudden, your relation begins to take a sudden turn. Little things begin to bother you a lot. You actually start to feel surrounded by several problems.
You doubt your decision of getting into the relationship and committing. It is rightly said, “when you walk through hell, don’t stop”, I think it was made for this third stage only. Only when you move ahead in a direction to solve your differences, will you be able to move on to the later stages of love.
Stage 4 – Creating “real” love
This is the stage when you recover from your problems, you get to the core of things that cause issues. Here your partner loves you for who you are and tries to accept you as you are.
They understand that your hurtful behavior is not because you are mean or unloving, but because you may have been wounded in the past. One of the best stages so far!
Stage 5 – The Power of Two
You want to utilise the power of two to change the world. Together you aim to make this world a better place for others. Lucky are those who reach this stage.
Ultimate goal is achieved, you are comfortable with each other. You don’t wish to change anything about either of you. You gain completeness.
