The Science Behind Happily Ever After: Feature Post by ProFlowers

The Science Behind Happily Ever After_ Guest Post by ProFlowers.png

If you know me by now, then you know that I love to quantify everything and I need a reason for everything.  I was the annoying child who asked WHY a million times.  As a single dater, I hated not always being able to know why things were the way they were in repeated failed relationships or bad first dates.  If only I could know the science behind dating, I could then work to be better at it.  But dating wasn’t calculated, it was free form, organic and at times disastrous.  To make the understatement of the year, it was unpredictably frustrating.  But did it have to be?  Isn’t there a science behind everything?  Wasn’t someone doing research on the science behind dating?

Low an behold, last week I found just that.  A well researched article by ProFlowers entitled The Science Behind Happily Ever After.  This article includes:

  • The 3 Stages of a Romantic Relationship
  • The exact length of the Honeymoon phase and how to ween off boredom once it ends
  • 8 Steps to Happily Ever After

Go read the article and then let me know what you think.  I was particularly surprised to learn how the honeymoon phase correlated almost exactly with my own engagement.  Right as we were exiting the honeymoon phase and boredom or monotony was bound to seep in, we fortunately had the excitement of a wedding, move across the country, honeymoon and then new baby.  Needless to say it’s been a busy two years!

Lastly don’t forget that Valentine’s Day is coming up!  If you are single and not planning to send flowers or candy to a special romantic someone then consider sending a thoughtful gift to a best friend, your mom or even yourself.  My mom loves getting flowers. What mom doesn’t?  And receiving unexpected flowers from a bestie, when you are single and maybe feeling glum about V-day is everything!  Trust me I’ve been on the receiving end.

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the article!  To learn more about ProFlowers you can also check them out on IG, or Facebook @ProFlowers.
