According to People.com, Prince Harry is still a happily taken man. He was seen with girlfriend, socialite Cressida Bonas, on back-to-back date nights earlier this week. On Monday, the lovebirds attended a James Blunt show at the Tabernacle in London’s Notting Hill. The following evening, the casually-dressed couple were spotted at a performance of the Book of Mormon. This duo was first seen together during the summer of 2012 and rekindled their relationship in February when Bonas vacationed with the royal family in Switzerland.

How do you know how much time to spend with your partner in the beginning of a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

You’re dating the girl or guy of your dreams, and it’s hard not to want to spend every minute of every day with them. It’s important, though, to find balance in your life. You can embrace your new love while still maintaining your sense of self. The tricky part is figuring out just how much time to spend with your partner in the beginning of a relationship. Cupid has some tips:

1. Pace yourself: Too much, too soon can cause even a great relationship to suddenly end. If you’ve been seeing each other once or twice a week, gradually add another day or night to your typical schedule. After all, you want to leave them wanting more of you, not less!

2. Don’t forget about your friends: Make sure that you still spend time with the other people in your life too. They’ll resent you if you start ignoring them because of your partner, so be sure to spend two or three nights each week without your significant other by your side.

3. Enjoy your alone time: You don’t want to forgo your personal passions because of romance, no matter how exciting your love life may be. Stick with your usual routine, whether it includes photography class on Tuesday evening or movie night every Friday. Once you feel confident that your sweetheart is sticking around, feel free to invite them to share your hobbies with you — but never give them up.
