Stage 1: The Euphoric Stage

The euphoric stage is the falling-in-love stage. It’s when we can overlook any and all faults of the other person.

For this reason, there is very little conflict at this stage. A feeling of oneness is strong. In fact, the connection and chemistry are strong enough to bring about separation anxiety —you want to be with the other person all of the time. It’s also probably the most likely time that a woman will receive flowers.

This stage typically lasts around six months (but can go up to around two years). During this stage, it’s probably best to not make any major decisions about the relationship. The time it takes to really get to know the other person is crucial for future success .
