Closed stages of dating The closed stages of dating are those that have an easily foreseeable end. There is a big difference between a night of passion between two lovers and a one night stand.A one night stand is never going to lead anywhere, because one of the people involved was either solely after a quickie with no consequences, and you really should have been bright enough to pick up on this, or they indulged against their better judgement, alcohol induced probably.Timing is everything in achieving the horizontal shuffle with a meaningful partner, and a great way to make the transition is to mix up steps 7 and 8, i.e., make them a romantic meal at home.By now, there should have been enough trust built between you to effect this stage, and with the ambience and wine working its magic only yards away from the bedroom, then anything can happen.Typically this is done in a restaurant situation, which ticks all the boxes with regards to a conducive romantic ambience, while also providing enough of a feeling of safety and escapability to put everyone at ease. A drink or two would ease the conversation, but too much and it could all go wrong.You might think that you’re conversational delivery is as sharp as tack, but you probably sound like Homer Simpson to the sober ear.
When you’ve met that special someone that you know you want to spend the rest of your life with, even if you’re only at that staring-starry-eyed-at-each-other-across-a-crowded-room stage, then you’d better prepare yourself for the exciting, but exacerbating, minefield that is the dating game.Many begin as one night stands, which lead later down the line to a phone call and another one night stand, and another and so on.Some begin as friendships which turn into physical relationships out of pure frustration. Firstly, because if there isn’t enough of a connection to progress the relationship any further at the beginning, then there won’t be any connection at the end – and it will end.If you’re still flirting six months down the line, then they will probably have lost interest.
