For others, this means being in a monogamous relationship. We grow, mature and become better people in the course of resolving and working through conflicts.

Going slowly in making any decisions about a relationship are more likely to be better ones than moving quickly unless it is clear that the relationship is not a good fit.

The first two to three months in a new relationship are about getting to know a person enough to decide if you want to continue. It's like a love and hate thing.

If there isn't a connection, the couple will break-up at this point. Sometime after the three-month mark, the excitement of the relationship slows just a bit.
