I'm interested to know your opinions about this.... how long do you think the honeymoon period lasts?? Or how long has it lasted in your experience? I'm sure it's different for everyone....
I don't know what this is, but in my current relationship it still feels like we're in a sort of honeymoon period after 8 months together.... but it's turned into a more permanent state for us. In my past relationships, the phase where everything was rainbows and puppies lasted no more than a couple of months at most.... and then came the part where we started really paying attention to e/o's flaws and trying to decide whether we could live with those flaws or not.
Right now, we are able to see e/o's flaws and imperfectations and we do have arguments (nothing major, though) and disagreements, but we are always able to sort things out rather quickly.... communication has been key!! We have become very comfortable with e/o, but we have still managed to keep that spark, that awesome feeling you get with new relationships, alive. I still feel butterflies when I see him or even when I get a text from him in the middle of the day.... we still hold hands all the time (as cheesy as that sounds).... and we enjoy every single minute we spend together.
I don't know if it's still that honeymoon period, although it had never lasted this long for me before.... but whatever it is, I wish it stays this way for a long time!
I'm just soooo happy, I needed to share it with the world (well, maybe not the world, but at least the portion of the world that visits this board).... sorry if all this sounds super mushy and corny.
