From Our Readers: To All the Couples Who Are Still in Their Honeymoon Stage
You brought me flowers every week and sang me songs. You had a lot of surprises when I was on my period, or for no reason at all. All that has changed and I am so grateful. We're beyond butterflies now. I am tied to you by an invisible, intimate connection.
There are no butterflies anymore, but now you are my home.
The first three months are always the sweetest. Your partner's quirks are adorable, and each day you feel as if nothing could go wrong. Good morning messages fill your inbox, the good night calls last until the sunrise, and the sweet words are ever so frequent. Savor these moments. Savor the clinginess.
The honeymoon phase isn't meant to last. You won't stay in what seems to be perfection forever.
Things will get harder, and you're going to go through problems. Ultimately, love is not superficial. Texts will get shorter, calls less frequent, and I Love Yous may be a rarity but that does not mean you have grown tired of each other. In the development of a relationship, you begin establishing a bond. With this bond comes your own language, a language only the two of you understand.
The changes in your relationship do not equate to distance. Sometimes, we begin to find comfort in a person. The butterflies seem to flutter less, as if they've settled. After you've been together for a while, you no longer feel the need to fill silence with words. Even in silence, you find comfort. The intimacy of your relationship now lies beyond words.

The honeymoon phase may seem beautiful. When you first face problems, you may want to turn back to that stage but believe me when I say that getting through those problems and reaching the stage of comfort is much better. You feel a warmth in your heart at the sight of the person. You no longer feel giddy; you will feel safe. Though the honeymoon phase is fun, nothing compares to finding home.
