All relationships have stages. They are pretty common but at the same time very different for men and women. Unfortunately, most of the couples don’t go further than stage three. However, it’s very important to know all of them while dating someone.
Having all these stages of dating in mind doesn’t mean that you need to follow them strictly, but at the same time developing your relationship step by step would definitely help you to finally build a healthy and successful relationship.
So what are these stages of dating a man? Let’s take a look at the main 5 stages to learn more about how to date a man.
Stage one: Lust and sexual feelings
Yes, it’s true. All the men look at your physical appearance firstly. Of course, there is an exception when your relationship starts from a friendship. But it’s another story.
Having a sexual affection is totally normal for the beginning of a relationship. He doesn’t know you yet, so the reason he chose you would be your nice body or beautiful face. Don’t feel offended by this. He will get a chance to know you better later on.
Stage two: Crush
It’s a very sweet time when you’re totally into each other and can’t spend a minute apart. Your relationship still remains sexual but you are getting to know each other more and he starts liking you not only for your appearance but for some other qualities like sense of humour or communication skills.
Stage three: Attachment
From this point, things are getting serious. He knows you quite well already and you have something you can talk about. A lot of things you like are getting common: hobbies, spending evenings in front of TV, spending time with friends, cooking. At this stage, you can even start living together.
Stage three is the most dangerous one. At this stage, you should realize if it’s your person and would you be able to spend the rest of your life with them.
Stage four: Commitment
When you came to this stage you should know that your relationship getting really serious. Committing to each other it’s a big step and not everyone is ready for this. Also, coming to this stage may take a lot of time as your partner should be ready to commit and sometimes it may take longer than you expect.

But it’s definitely not the last stage in your relationship!
