Question: I have been best friends with a particular woman for the last 5 years.
Now, some people would jump the gun and begin a hasty (and probably temporary) relationship from the get go. It is the first real friendship in which I have asked God to be in complete control of, and in following his will, we have become better friends that I could have ever imagined..
Once the first phase of the courtship process is complete, the next stage is to watch for positive body language from others in close proximity.
In the most simple of terms, the second stage of courtship is like yelling, ' Help!
If you can’t stand the person but have a great physical relationship, rethink the relationship. If one person is uncomfortable with any type of physical expression, don’t do it. Don’t push a date to do anything that makes him/her feel uncomfortable. The first phase of courtship is letting others know that you are present and available through a variety of means such as posture, clothing, facial expressions, movement, and other related non-verbal communications.Similar to a peacock showing its feathers, this first stage of the courtship process is a complex come-hither dance that combines attention-getting behavior with still what Charles Darwin called 'submissive displays' - but most of us just call it flirting.There are five distinct phases of courtship occurring as non-verbal communications that all people, no matter where they live or what culture they belong to, obey and follow in the attempt to create a pair bond.What follows is a short explanation of each of the five phases of courtship, with a link to more detailed information.
