This lasts anywhere from 2 days to 26 months, and then the couple will enter into the power struggle or the conflict phase of their relationship.This is natural and probably will last the rest of your marriage, or forever (the bad news).
If it’s real, you’re going to disagree; you’re even going to fight sometimes. My boyfriend of six months and I were looking at something together on his phone.
Since it’s been at least half a year, have you brought this up in a serious way?
Have you, for example, asked him to meet your parents?
He's not one to bring girls home to meet his family, but no girl has actually stuck around long enough either. The other issue is we haven't gone on a small weekend getaway together, and I understand that he's busy with getting his master's and also wants to save his money (he just bought a house), but he seems to have no problem going on trips with his male friends. But there’s a whole lot of room between “getting upset” and wondering if you should just call it off.
Maybe I’m wrong, but it doesn’t sound like you’ve actually confronted him about either point.
