It is common that during the first stage of falling in love we contemplate our partner as a perfect being, able to brighten our days and give us peace with just a smile, so we want to spend as much time as possible at his side.
However, and although it hurts us to recognize it, spending a lot of time by his side is not as healthy as we think; In fact, science says that if you want your relationship to be successful, you should only see your boy once a week.
According to psychiatrist Scott Carroll, the human being needs to perform and feel free to fall deeply in love. To reinforce this theory, psychologist Seth Meyers explains that by spending excessive time with your partner, you could fall into dependence. The fact is that we need our own space to reach maturity and thus love consciously.
Therefore, both specialists recommend that couples only have appointments once a week, so each individual has their own personal space.
In addition, being together only once a week brings various benefits, such as:
- Avoid a broken heart: if you can keep the meetings strictly one to two times a week, the intensity of something that does not work will be reduced.
- Curiosity intensifies: in each encounter, they will have a lot to talk about, so much so that the spark will be lit every time they meet.
- You will not be the bad friend of the fairy tale: you will not have to cancel the exits to the cinema with your friends or family meals, because you can find the perfect balance between one exit and another without any worry.
You will have time to reflect
It is easy to get carried away by the heart, but the mind is what keeps our feet on the ground; Having a moment alone will help you reflect on each appointment and where your relationship is going.
Remember that relationships are not pink clouds, but a couple of people sharing qualities, defects and thoughts, which at some point will clash, provoking discussions that must be resolved from love, maturity and freedom.
