I figured it out!

I know what it is that's bothering me!

I seem to have an inner Successful Relationship Guide that says

Step 1: meet
Step 2: like each other a lot
Step 3: want to share lives
Step 4: eventually live together
Step 5: ????
Step 6: profit

So therefore, since I have these steps down, I'm at a loss because I don't have a general sense of where things are going.  I'm off the grid, people!

Nothing I can really do about that, except get a new inner Successful Relationships Guide.  But at least I know what it is that I'm thrown off by now.  I have the map to a foreign country and I don't know where my hotel is.

It looks like a big jump between 2 and 3.

Personally I like going to 2.5, "Hang out a reasonable amount together and have sexings and the like" and then only moving forward later if it feels right.

Well yeah, I didn't mean it like there's 24 hours in between the steps. There's no time guideline on that.

Right. But why does it *have* to "progress" from a point where you're happy? Maybe with the new guy you'll just be at dating forever, and be happy with it, while you're at a friends with benefits with someone else, married with a third person, and also living common law with a fourth person (to make up an example)? And maybe you'll stay that way in a stable state because everyone is happy with it.

Well I don't know. That's why I had been confused. Obviously it isn't going to end up looking like my inner roadmap anymore.
