Hey, you just met him and this is crazy, but … could this be something, maybe? We’ve all had one of those fairy unicorn dates — everything goes so smoothly, the chemistry is so strong, the desire to see him unclad and make out with him (right at that bar stool) is so intense, you can barely fight it. The best part about those wonderful dates, apart from renewing your faith in the male species, is that they open up the possibility of a relationship longer than a few drinks or a few dates.
But while it can be tempting (and exhilarating, even) to throw all caution to the wind and let yourself completely escape in this new hunk, experts agree that if you really want a long-term relationship instead of a fling, there are some things you should try to figure out within the first six weeks of dating.
Consider this your most important to-do list:
#1. Can you fight in a healthy way? Even when you’re in the honeymoon stage during the beginning of your relationship — those blissful six weeks — you’ll have fights as a couple. Honestly, those arguments are healthy for your relationship and can often times bring you closer, but only if you fight effectively.
“Most people avoid conflict for as long as possible when they first get together, but I look at it as a good thing,” Dr. Van Kirk says. “Experiencing some conflict in the first six weeks will give you an opportunity to see how you negotiate disagreements.”
Are you hot headed and he’s mellow? Does he run away from conflict or talk it out?
