How a man functions at the start of a relationship

Men and women are very different. Although many people hide behind the fact that the sexes are now completely "equal", this is not the case, as many behaviours differ greatly between the two sexes. While women are more passionate about relationships and fall in love more easily, men go through 4 clearly defined stages, which we'll explain in more detail below. In the rest of this article, find out how men function at the start of a relationship.


First step: the visual

The visual part is essential for a man to fall in love with a woman. At the start of any relationship, men look for a partner who attracts them visually and therefore physically. Women, on the other hand, have a much broader spectrum because they are interested in much more than appearance, right from the start.

As time goes by, men also become interested in more than just appearance; they seek to get to know a woman's inner self. Quite often, having been attracted only by looks, they may be disappointed by the personality of the woman in question. However, the beginning of the process for men starts with the visual.


Second stage: confidence

At this stage, a man needs a woman who inspires him with security and confidence. He will pay close attention to the things he has in common with his partner and to affinities, as both will be very important for him to bond with.

This does not mean that the woman has to pretend to behave in a certain way for the man to notice her. Rather, it means that the personalities of the two people have to match if a long-term relationship is to be possible.


Third stage: the family

The third stage is crucial in the life of any relationship, at least as far as men are concerned. What happens here is that the man will introduce the woman to his family and expect their approval. This should happen naturally. The woman must not force this step, as the man must be totally comfortable with the idea of introducing his partner to the family.


Fourth stage: sex

The last stage that men go through is sexual. Everything that happens in the bedroom will be considered something of the utmost importance for the man to begin to love the woman he is with and become attached to her. This is due to the chemistry awakened in the previous three stages, which are part of the whole package.

In this respect, women are very different from men. They're a little less methodical. It's incredible, but all men are alike when it comes to their sex lives. Male psychology really is a fascinating labyrinth, although a little less complicated than ideas about love and relationships.

What you need to understand is that for a relationship to be sustainable for a man, everything needs to go well in bed. The first few sexual encounters can be tricky, but after that there needs to be a real connection between the two partners during sex. The man needs to feel comfortable with the woman.

You now know how a man works at the start of a relationship. If you've had a lot of partners, pay attention to the details and you'll see that all men have gone through the same 4 stages to fall in love with their partner. It's incredible, but true! So if you're just starting out in a relationship, you know exactly what needs to happen to find out if your partner is in love with you or not, or if it's just around the corner.
