Stage 2: Curiosity, Interest, and Infatuation During the second stage, attraction and infatuation are most pronounced.Differences are not noticed or are dismissed with thoughts like “not a big deal” or “she will change”.Couples generally do not have much conflict at this stage of the cycle as each is really trying hard to impress the other person.There are 4 predictable stages that couples experience in a dating relationship.At each stage, there is often a decision (sometimes more thoughtfully arrived at than others) to move forward or to end the relationship.
