The attraction phase of romantic relationship
Before anything else between you and the opposite sex, there must be attraction, it will always come first before any romantic connection. Often times, it is not always physical but something that trigger your emotion once you see the person, or hear him/her and even a thought about the person.
If you don’t feel attraction for any opposite gender, you can’t develop that strange feeling that’ll look as if you have a butterfly in your stomach. Attraction is so much important because, it initiate the possibility of having a relationship with whoever you’re fascinated with.

Because there has been attraction in the first place, that makes it easier to begin to trust each other and share things which ordinarily, you won’t want to share with just any friend. It is in this same friendship that you’ll understand each other well and think of moving thing forward because, you’d have been able to see how compatible your friend could be if both of you really get into the romantic relationship.
At this point, if everything works well as both of you want it; there will be transition into the commitment phase, which is the third phase of romantic relationship.
The final phase of the romantic relationship which according to the way Wikipedia put it;
A committed relationship is an interpersonal relationship based upon a mutually agreed-upon commitment to one another involving exclusivity, honesty, openness, or some other agreed-upon behaviour.
As you can see the definition above about committed relationship which is the same thing as the commitment I’m referring to here. At this phase, it is for things to work our as planned and both of you will ensure everything goes smoothly (though there may be some little disagreement here and there) and you’re able to proceed into marriage where you both enter into another stage in life.
You see, when a woman tells you, she’s “committed” relationship wise, she has believe in her partner for a long term successful relationship full of honesty and lot of intimacy.
That is the three phases of romantic relationship you need to pass through, if you desire a long lasting romantic relationship.
