The assumption is this: The longer you date someone, the more profound your connection is.
Because there are many ways in which a dating experience can have an impact on you, whether it lasts for a few months or a few weeks. Not only that, but what you take away from a short-lived romance may come in handy for your future relationships.
Researchers surveyed over people across a wide age range, and after asking those participants to reproduce the events and experiences they had at the start of both long-term and short-term relationships, they determined that romantic interest increased in pretty much exactly the same way, no matter how long the relationship lasted.
According to Dr. Gary Browna prominent couples therapist in Los Angeles, the ificance of a relationship is not dependent on how much time you were together because regardless of whether it lasts, it can still be a learning experience. A short-lived relationship can also help you to feel more self-confident and maybe even restore your faith in the fact that you could feel love again, despite one or more past hurts.
In other words, a short-lived relationship can still teach you a lot, much of which will likely benefit your love life in general. From that experience alone, you may have not only discovered how important it is for you to have a certain level of space, but also learned how to set healthy boundaries.
Alternatively, if you were left feeling skeptical and guarded after being ghosted several times, and then had a short-lived relationship with someone who was totally upfront with you from start to finish, that experience may have replenished your trust in a profound way, thus allowing you to open your heart to others down the line.
Brown also notes that short-term romances can highlight what qualities you value in your love life. For instance, perhaps you met someone on an app, felt a genuine connection with them, and dated for a few months. Now, going forward, you know that you value physical touch in a relationship.

Some relationship experiments only last for a short while. Others last a lifetime. Others bring us more happiness and joy than we could have ever imagined. The truth is, any relationship can be meaningful, regardless of its length, especially if it le to growth and self-discovery.
By acknowledging the value of your short-lived relationships, you may be able to appreciate all of your romantic experiences more, regardless of whether or not they last. Remember: Only you get to evaluate the worth of a particular relationship because only you know how it has changed or affected you. By Rebecca Strong.
