Have Relationship Questions? Ask a Counsellor for Answers ASAP
Following on from our previous discussion about my recently ended relationship, i just wanted to ask about the nature of the honeymoon period/infatuation in a relationship. As I mentioned in my previous question, my ex would say things along the lines of "I feel as though I've met my soulmate", "I want to spend the rest of my life with you", "I might not have an aboriton if we get pregnant" etc.
I understand that during the infatation stage of a relaitonship it is possible to feel this way, without a deeper connection having been formed. Is this the case?
Furthermore, is 3 weeks of seperation, with the prospect of 3 years of seperation, and only seeing one another physically twice a month, along with the many distractions of university enough time for such infatuation/honeymoon feelings to wear off?
And can one infatuation be more intense than another?
We were still very much in this phase until the establishment of distance between us so could this have encouraged questions about whether we could make it work over distance, whether it was worth it etc. despite all of the extreme statements mentioned above?
