Being in a euphoric relationship is a sign of bliss. Well, yes and no. Being in a euphoric state is lovely, and once the novelty wears off; that love can turn into hate as quickly as flicking a switch. The latter is not good.
True love is all about planting seeds, inch by inch - step by step. True love needs to be nurtured. There are no fantasies and addictions attached. No clinging to your soulmate.
Euphoria is a state of mania. A relationship is moving at warp speed...like a fast rollercoaster ride you want to get off from.
If your new love based relationship is based on the following, then you're in a euphoric relationship. It is time to slow it down and remove any fantasties about what a relationship should be all about:
Your new mate rings you about 50 times a day (sometimes it feels like 100) to say "I love you" when they've only just met you. And even just to talk to you when you're busy working constantly.
Your new mate is flooding you with treats, and going beyond their means financially in order to do so.
With the above, you're relishing it - even though it is a fantasy. Relationships cut both ways.
You're stuck in that partner cave (more coming up in my next article) where you spend an abundance of time with your new mate. All of a sudden your friends and family come second.
Your new mate is always on your mind. Hence you find it difficult to concentrate.
If you find yourself in a euphoric relationship, seek some help. Apart from slowing things down; talk things through with a trusty. Ask yourself how you can slow things down. Once the euphoria wears off, things can get rather messy.
