I call that the New Shiny Syndrome
To me, it's the shadow side of NRE.
In my relationships, NRE has been experienced in equal measure by both sexes.We admit we are addicted to each other, laugh about it, try not to let it rule the roost, and bitch to each other when we are frustrated.For me, It isn't just something that occurs once at the beginning of a new relationship, either. It can re-occur with changes in relationship dynamics.I see my lover with different eyes and I'm smitten all over again.
