The 4 Stages of Dating Relationships

There are 4 predictable stages that couples experience in a dating relationship.  At each stage, there is often a decision (sometimes more thoughtfully arrived at than others) to move forward or to end the relationship.

Some stages take longer than others to go through and some people take much longer at each stage.  Unfortunately, some people don’t fully experience and process each stage as an opportunity for personal growth or to make a healthy evaluation about the relationship or about themselves.

Stage 1: Initial Meeting/Attraction

Dating relationships have to start somewhere.  The initial meeting may take place over the internet, through friends, in a church or social group, at a party or bar or any one of a myriad of many different places.
