Honeymoon phase: myth or fact

Do you guys believe in the honeymoon phase of a relationship? When the sparks and the heat dies, are we kidding ourselves if we accept it as the honeymoon phase coming to and end? If this phase is indeed real - what happens if it ends for the one person and not the other. The one who still feels the heat must then pretend, grin and bear it - otherwise he/she will be seen as "  clingy and needy"  .

How do you tell if it'  s the end of the honeymoon or it'  s time to wake up and smell the coffee - he/she is no longer into you...

One can b unrealistically happy, swing into a phase of unrealistically dissatisfied, before negotiating a more realistic and contented realistic meddle ground

Yes there is a honeymoon phase, when the relationship is shiny and new, you' ve got stars in your eyes and your partner can do no wrong. When that phase ends your relationship would either have grown and evolved into something more mature and lasting, or you would have realised that this is not the person for you, and be ready to move on. Yes it is sad if both partners are not in the same stage but that' s life.
