Stage of dating relationship
Interpersonal relationships are formed in the context of social, cultural and other influences.The context can and may and perhaps will vary from family or kinship relations, friendship, marriage, relations with associates, work, clubs, neighborhoods, and places of worship.Intense conflict has the potential for developing during this stage.It is most advantageous to learn about problem solving, conflict management and communication during this stage.Before you begin actually working on your relationship, you need to start by understanding relationships in general.You have probably heard couples say, "We knew the moment we saw each other across the room that this was THE ONE and we have been happily married for 45 years." Although we all wish we could experience love this way, the reality is that for most of us, relationships go through certain stages.The first thing that should happen if it has not happened during the initiation of the relationship is that intentions should be established.Whatever that conversation looks like, intentions should be clear and it should be the man making them so.
Last but not least, trust is one of the top signs your relationship will last because you know that your boyfriend will not cheat you, that your girlfriend will never flirt with other men and betray you.We’ve been writing about trust since the beginning because we truly believe that this is the number one reason why you should be together with some one.If there is no trust among you, there is no reason to be in a relationship. It makes you feel comfortable and something inside you tells you that you can endure any kind of difficulty if you have a trustworthy person next to you.Respect is all about giving the right opportunity to speak up and to look up to him, a feeling that makes you proud just by being next to her.
How are you going to have a long lasting relationship if you don’t respect each other? You will go down the road of stupid fights over nothing and irrational accusations on funny grounds.
In the end, there is no formula and no rote substitute for intellectually honest Christians seeking to care well for one another and to faithfully apply Scripture to infinitely varied relational circumstances.
