I understand this can be confusing, but what about this process isn’t?
The first couple of dates are crucial as they will decide whether or not you will be moving forward to the following stages or if the two of you will be "too busy" to see each other in coming weeks.
I mean, you’ve only been intimate a dozen times or so… This is the first stage when you actually matter to the person more than any other slab of meat would.
You put in the time and effort, your liver has certainly paid for it and it is now time to finally get to know the person you’ve been having sex with all this time. Keep all the lovey-dovey romance stuff to yourself and, whatever you do, do not look him/her in the eyes when in the midst of coitus.
You will plan your wedding, discuss your future more fully, and learn even greater acceptance of one another, and your differences.
Phases of Dating are different with every single person!
It doesn’t matter what the initial intentions are – not as if you know what the other person’s intentions are anyway – on the first date you’re either sleeping together or not.To become uncertain doesn't mean that this person is wrong for you.Without an understanding of this stage, it is too easy for a man to drift from partner to partner and for a woman to make the mistake of pursuing a man more than he is pursuing her.Everyone goes through the first date first – obviously.This is one of the phases of dating where you really get to test the waters and where you get to see if the guy you're out with is the one for you.
