Learn what is required to get to real love, which is stage three of a healthy romantic relationship. The majority of people never get past stage two but rather restart at stage one over and over again.
Summary of the Relationship Stages
1) Crush / Infatuation / Idealization Stage
2) The Futile Attempt to Change the Other Person Stage / The Power Struggle Stage
3) True Love Stage / Accepting the Other Person as They Are Stage / The Stability Stage
4) Growing Old Together Stage
Note: I accidentally said there were five stages rather than four during the episode, but I mis-spoke when I said that. Thank you for understanding!
