Here’s a general rule of thumb for you and everyone else: If, in the first six months, you are feeling like the honeymoon period is over, MOA. The first six-month period IS the honeymoon period. If you’ve been with someone even less than six months — we’re talking four whole months here — and you’re talking about how things were much better “in the beginning” of your relationship, that’s crazy. Four months IS the beginning of a relationship. MOA. LW, you and this guy are 15 years apart and at different points in your lives. You need someone who has the time to devote to you and can make you a priority in a way this guy can’t or won’t. A month isn’t going to change anything. If he’s not giving you the attention you want and you feel like things have taken a turn for the worse only four months into this thing, MOA. Life’s too short to try to make these short-run relationships anything more than what they’re meant to be — quick love lessons on your way to something bigger and better.
