The same can ring true for girlfriends, if you happen to be a male reading this article. A euphoric relationship is a sign that you're in this cave.

What's the boyfriend (or girlfriend) cave you might ask?

When you're spending all of your (and too much) time with your new mate.

Yes, you've just fallen in love. You're an amazing person who enjoys a variety of different activities. Perhaps you love attending some cooking classes, and/or going to a number of parties. Chances are, you've met your new mate through one of these activities. Your varied lifestyle is what attracted you to this person and vice versa. You're an interesting person, and your life is interesting...until you enter the cave.

When you both get into the 'cave' - you're only spending your spare time together, and not with anyone else. Relationships are all about balance. This behaviour is not conducive to any healthy relationship.

When all you want to do is spend time with your new mate, then I'm sorry to say but you're in the cave.

If all you ever talk about is your new love (because you're in the cave) - you've now become a boring person. Soon this will lead to resentment among other loved ones.

The key is balance. If you see your new mate once or twice a week in the beginning - that is fine. It is essential to maintain your current lifestyle, and continue to live your wonderful pre-boyfriend or girlfriend life before this relationship came along. Thay way absence does make the heart grow fonder, and you love and appreciate each other for who you both really are. You're also giving your partner some breathing space. You can't be together all the time. Life does not work that way.
