There are basically 5 stages of love, but most are stuck at stage 3 only. Let’s find out why? Inexperienced in love, writing this story was an out-of-my-comfort zone kind of job for me. Handling love is a Herculean task and hats-off to people who manage to reach the fifth stage of love! *Bravery personified*
This article will be a good read for you, as every once in a while we keep surfing the internet for some entertainment, thoughts or just time-pass. This piece has all of it for you, except time pass.
Come, let’s go through the five stages of love. Hold on, don’t give up here at least before reaching the fifth stage.
Stage 1- Falling in Love.
Benjamin Franklin has rightly said, “Admiration is the daughter of ignorance.” This is the very first stage of so-called “love.” It is when you kind of not even acknowledge the person. This is when you are carried away by attraction. You identify all qualities in him or her and stick them on your list.
Believing that “love is forever”
Be cautious guys, let me warn you, all that glitters is not gold. This is the stage when we think that this is the best thing happening to us. Wait, look before you leap! Don’t fall head over heels in love.
Stage 2 – The Couple
Love deepens, you feel more secure and cuddly and find all reasons why this will survive and last longer. You may not have wild sex, but it is largely satisfying.
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, guys!
Stage 3 – Beginning of the End!
This is the stage when everything seems to go wrong. Just like when a switch is flipped, your relationship begins to take a turn. Little things begin to bother you. You feel surrounded by 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 utilize 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.
The ultimate goal is achieved, you guys are comfortable with each other. You don’t wish to change anything about either of you. You gain completeness.
