    It depends on the quality of the relationship. If it's a good one and you fancy the pants off each other then I reckon it's over a year. Signs are not making and effort, which can also be positive sign in some ways, and sex drive mismatch rearing its ugly head.

    Depends how much time you spend with them. If you see them nearly everyday (e.g. at school) then I'd say about 2 months. If you see them less often then perhaps up to 4 months. Then again, if you're both truly in love I think it could be many months

    Varies between relationships from I'd say anywhere from a few months to a year. For some couples, it might only even last a few weeks. Once the honeymoon period is over, it pretty much is make or break for couples. Some couples sail through it with ease and others crash and burn.

    Hard to say, as it's different for everyone. Spock's Socks hit the nail on the head; it can be a few weeks, months, years etc.

    As a side-note, I find it disappointing that people confuse the honeymoon period with being in love. Whilst there is no real true definition of "love", a lot of people seem to think that all the butterflies, excitement etc during the honeymoon period is love, which I disagree with. When the reality of relationships hit, they cut and run thinking it's over.

    Depends on so many imponderables to do with you, her, frequency of contact, and other contextual factors like social networks
