Think about what happens on a honeymoon: a lot of tropical drinks with umbrellas in them, a lot of sex, and probably temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Translation: during your honeymoon you’re drunk, whacked out on orgasms and suffering from heat exhaustion. You’re not in your greatest state of mind to make any large decisions. The same goes for when you’re in the honeymoon phase of a relationship. In fact, that’s exactly why it’s called a phase: it’s not real life. There’s nothing wrong with it, of course. In fact, it’s an important phase in a blooming relationship. However, the honeymoon phase is no time to make decisions about moving in together, marriage or parenthood. If you’re having those convos and second-guessing whether its a little too soon, here are signs your intuition is right.

You have sex more than once a day

Those all-night romp sessions—you know the ones where you seem to have superhuman strength—yeah, those only exist during the honeymoon phase. They come back on occasion during vacations, though.

You have sex every day

It’s true; even just having sex every day means you’re still in the honeymoon phase. Dwindling sex doesn’t mean you’re not into each other, though—it simply means you feel physically bonded enough to take a breather, and focus on getting to know each other more.

You have sex every time you see each other

Last sex point I promise, but it is true: eventually you will not even have sex every time you are together. If you cannot fathom this, then you are definitely still in the honeymoon phase.

You aren’t sleeping much

You’re willing to wait up until 2 in the morning on a weeknight if it means getting to see him. You wake up early to have sex. When you’re not together, you stay up talking on the phone about how much you wish you were together. You’re just not sleeping much.

You don’t notice that you aren’t sleeping much

You don’t notice that you’re sleep-deprived though. You seem to be deriving energy from somewhere! It’s like you’re the Hulk…on honeymoon.

Your meal times are all over the place

You manage not to realize that you haven’t eaten all day. When you’re together, all of your attention goes to each other, and you don’t notice rumbles in your stomach or low blood sugar.

People say you are glowing

Being in a honeymoon phase is similar to being pregnant; you glow! Your body is releasing happy and relaxing chemicals, and everybody can see it.

Nothing he does bothers you

Not the fact that he is perpetually ten minutes late, the fact that he snores, or the fact that he eats the exact same thing for dinner every single night. Think about it…if anybody else did this, it would drive you up the wall.

You laugh all of the time for no reason

When you’re together, you’re always laughing, giggling or grinning. You can barely hide your teeth, and your cheeks hurt from smiling.

You don’t know where the time goes

When you’re together, it’s almost like you’re in some black hole. Hours pass in what feels like minutes. You think it’s 5 pm, but it’s actually 9 pm.

You’re attached at the hip

If you’re in the same room, you are touching. If you can’t be in the exact same room, you gravitate towards each other. You’ll stand outside the bathroom while he is in there so you can keep chatting.

You’re doing stuff you don’t usually like

Whatever that may be, from going to hockey games or drinking beer or watching outdoor documentaries, you’re doing it. Somehow, it seems fun now.

You see nobody else in the room

When you’re in the same room as your guy, you don’t notice anybody else. People are talking, but it all sounds like a buzz. People are walking around, but they look like a blur. The only person you hear or see clearly is your boo.

You over-explain yourself

If you think for a second that your honey misunderstood something you said, or took a comment the wrong way, you frantically go into explaining and apologizing mode. Later, you’ll sort of say, “Eh. He’ll figure it out.”

You’ve let other parts of your life slide

You haven’t seen your friends in weeks. You are constantly days behind on returning work emails. You need to call your mom—she’s left you several voice messages asking if you’re alive.
