From your own experience, how long has the so called "honeymoon" period lasted for you???
a few weeks? months? and what happens to your relationship after that period...

Like the above post said 6 mnths to a yr, but situations that bring you closer could bring back the newly wed cycle, i.e. you being there for her if a relative passes away, or supporting her when she has a major confrontation with friend or family member and the end all be all she gets pregnant and you show what a great guy you are good luck with the lady!!!

Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee

honeymoon period when you're all over each other and its new and exciting, and you'd rather be with that person then do anything....when you're together time passes mega quick and once its time to leave u can't pull yourself away.....send stupid txt's checking on each other and asking abou the day...call at nigth to tell about the day, blah blah blah
after a while, i think once u become mega comfortable and settled is when the honeymoon phase ends.

I believe the honeymoon stage lasts the first 3 months. I am currently in it and you will tell when your starting to get out of it. Im about 2 and a half months in and i can see it. You find stuff out about her that you didnt know, shes nagging, but still caring. Kinda like your mom and dad. Just dont get her or yourself too attached. You will find out stuff you may not like about her further on in the relationship.

The end of the honeymoon phase is sadly what often make or break the relationship.
We live in a consumer society, and people are no exception, especially women. "Back in the days", people stuck to their relationship and tried to make it work because it pretty much all they had.
Now look at today. Internet, social networking, singles lines. We live in a giant social network that makes it extremely easy to meet someone when we want. Might not be the best option sometimes, but it's there. Add in the consumer mentality that states if it's broken, trash it and buy a new one, you have a recipe for disaster.
It's extremely easy, especially for women, to dump/get dumped and meet someone else the very same night. People couldnt do that before, reputation was something powerful. Today, we live in Anonymous Town and your life/past sexual experiences are unknown, unlike closed social circles in small towns a few decades ago.
The duration of the honeymoon phase varies, as we can see from answers in this thread. Knowing you just met your 9/10 and just started dating her seriously, i know your question has to do with the fact you're worried if it's gonna last after the honeymoon fades.
This is why i warned you in my other post, and i warn you again here: don't get emotionally attached too quick. You don't know her enough yet, maybe everything is fine now, but she could have that spoiled kid mentality and dump you soon as the sparkles are not shiny enough anymore or when her friends decide youre not hot enough for her.
Enjoy it while it lasts, live in the present moment, don't expect anything.

the hormone that produces ''love'' last from 6 months to 2 years (3 years max) and then it is replaced by another hormone that makes possible long-time relationship. (yes you're still in love but the same love like in the honeymoon stage)
Frozen_By_You is also absolutely right.

i know this is an old thread but it is relevant to my concerns...
i have been dating a girl for 5.5 months. the honeymoon period appears to be over, which i don't have a problem with but i'm wondering how my g/f feels. is there any way to discuss the honeymoon period with her...? should i? or should i just see how she acts?

two years and some months and my bf and I are still in our honeymoon period... it all depends what you put in into the relationship and what you get out. If you both are in love with each other, then the honeymoon period continues.Knee Pops Every Step I Take Crew
