Ask Sujeiry: When Does the Honeymoon Period End?
My man and I have only been together a few months. He’s already given me a promise ring and everything is amazing.
When he calls, I still get butterflies. When he texts me, my heart still jumps. But this feeling will end, right? It will become a routine and not as exciting eventually. That’s what happens! When does the honeymoon period end in relationships?
Dear Still Honeymooning,
The honeymoon period doesn’t have to end! Yes, a routine will kick in, but that doesn’t mean that your feelings of love and lust vanish. Those butterflies are a great indication that what you feel is real and special. That’s important for a long-lasting relationship.
What will occur is a transition. You will get into a comfy place in your relationship where you can just be you. No makeup needed. No pretenses or attempts for perfection. Eventually, you will feel so comfortable, confident and sure of your love and your man that the honeymoon period becomes less about sex and painting the town fuchsia and more about love and intimacy. Butterflies still included!
So, don’t fret, my dear. Enjoy this feeling and continue to love and communicate with your man. Continue to embrace one another and accept one another as is and that loving feeling may just last forever.
