Get The Ring: How to Find & Keep the Right One for Life.
Rosie & Sherry - Part 12
very little time for you to interact with each other. We think that it's a very good idea for you to plan on different activities including a lot of interactive dates.
What are interactive dates? You go bowling together or play tennis or, if you're not athletic, go paddle boating. Take a hike, bring a picnic lunch. Pick a historic site and give each other a tour. As you get to know each other you might want to ask the person you're dating if they would like to help you pick out a present for a relative or a friend and you need a female or a male perspective on what's a good gift. Rosie suggests that you even have somebody pick you up at the airport when you come home from a business trip. This way they're going to get to see how you react when you have to wait 45 minutes for a bag that doesn't seem to be coming through the baggage department.
We also recommend that occasionally a couple goes on a longer date to see how you react when you become a little tired or when you spend a large block of time together. Over time you're going to start to become more comfortable with each other, we hope, and you're going to hopefully look forward to seeing each other again. And again, you're going to be developing a shared history. And that's very important because that is going to be a point where you see a lot about each other's personalities and start to appreciate the other person.
And from there on in it's clear sailing and on to the dramatic proposal? Are there any other obstacles that you could warn us about in the next stage of the process?
The “Jell-O” Rule - DowntimeWe have noticed that at some point in this relationship-building process, say the fourth and the fifth date, a couple is so comfortable with each other, and they really start to like each other, and they want to maximize the amount of time they spend with each other. And so instead of seeing each other twice a week and talking with each other on the telephone on the days that they're not on a date, they maximize their get-togethers. They'll go out three or four or five times a week. This is a really big mistake. It is a very emotionally intense period of time when a couple is building a relationship. And many people, particularly women, but many times men as well, don't realize that they need downtime in between their dates. It's such an emotionally intense period. They need to pay their bills, do their laundry, get their lives in order, go through their normal activities, but above all, they need time for their emotions to settle down. It's sort of like making Jell-O. You know how to mix water and the gelatin substance together and you get a nice red or green or orange liquid, but you have to refrigerate it for a while to let it jell. And if you don't let it jell and you drink it or eat it right away, it doesn't taste very good. You need to wait until it jells. Well, that's what happens when
