      Are you in need of a pro hacker with hack assistance without the user noticing? i would refer you guys to @MANDILAXPETROV1 via instagram as we all know being faithful and monogamous is not natural for human beings. It takes work

    We have seen eachother for 3 months and only met 2 times for 3 days each time because we have a long distance relationship and we are already in the wake up call stage. Now comes the big test because we already faught once and it was not easy because we both tend to be selfish and self pitying. We worked through it but I am still sceptical.

    I think we're either somewhere in stage 1 or stage 2. we've been together for over 2 months and there are times where I think he's absolutely perfect, but I understand he has flaws and I acknowledge and accept them. in the second stage, it seems as if I need something big, like a problem to tell if I'd stay with him or not, through it. well, so far, we haven't had any problems or arguments, however we are honest enough to tell each other our worries and concerns and seek companionship and comfort through them. uwu

    So I’ve been exclusive with a guy for a while now, nothing official but we are technically together just, not? 😂
    Anyway, the first couple weeks was good and then I sort of stepped back and all we did was argue for a couple weeks.
    It got so bad at one point and I was ready to walk because I felt like we didn’t understand each other and we were too different, so I didn’t speak to him for 3 days and I got a massive apology and I remember just replying to him and saying, I don’t even want to argue we have something good I don’t wanna mess this up
    And from that point we haven’t argued since and any disagreement we verbally work it out pretty quickly now..
    I never knew the second phase was normal because that’s exactly what happened but we worked it out together and had a long talk and we just resolved it by agreeing to communicate our feelings more and if we feel like we’re gonna argue, just sleep on it and speak with a clear head the next morning.
    It feels really good actually working together with a guy for once, and I don’t want to rush into a relationship , I’ve never really taken it slow with anybody and he’s the same, and it feels better taking more time to know him.
    I feel confident we’ll be a great couple one day. :)

    Strangely it feels like me and my partner got to the 6th stage really fast, although we sometimes go back to the big test but we work it through very smoothly usually

    I'm between 2 and 3, and I have the feeling we moved on way to far from stage 1 and stage 2 and 3 are very frightening, because I really love my partner and do not want to lose him.
