Transition from dating to serious relationship
This period is as exciting as it is emotionally tumultuous.
You’re discovering the other person and maybe even falling in love, but also keeping your guard up.
Remembering that you’re not only in a relationship, but also an individual with your own interests, actually strengthens your relationship and increases all that you can bring to it.
In addition to the time you and your partner spend privately together is the time you spend including your partner in your world.
Introducing your boyfriend or girlfriend to family and friends, inviting him or her to the family barbeque or work event and sharing your interests and hobbies, takes the relationship into full gear.
You have no problem mentioning each other in tweets, posting photos together in Instagram pictures or including each other in Facebook status updates.
For those who aren’t social-media-friendly, there are other ways of letting the world know you’re together, such as introducing each other as "girlfriend or boyfriend" and allowing your relationship to be in the limelight.
As Maya Angelou wisely stated, “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”This saying is even truer in a relationship where emotions and feelings are one of the main points of connection between you.
