Stages Of Relationship Development (A Timeline)
Did you recently get into a relationship, and now you want to know what lies ahead of you?
If so, then you’re thinking about the right thing. Because it’s clear that you’ll do whatever it takes to make your relationship work, and that’s very admirable!
At our annual Shogun Method seminar last month, I asked my audience:
“Okay, right off the top of your heads, what do you think are the phases of a relationship?”
Some of the answers I got were:
- “Talking, flirting, sex…”
- “Dating, courtship, marriage…”
- “First base, second base, third base…” (This one made me laugh.)
Of course, I had to straighten them out immediately after. I knew where they were getting their relationship advice before they came to me.
…and guess what? I realize if I didn’t straighten them out FAST, they’d be leading their relationships into a trap.

The Worst Place To Get Relationship Advice From
Where did my audience get their ideas about the stages of a relationship?
What did they do to understand how relationships work?
Here’s where: from none other than people who call themselves “Pickup Artists” (PUAs). I mean, this PUA stuff – it’s all over the Internet.
And if the men in my audience continued following scammy PUA advice…
…they’ll throw themselves headlong into a painful, frustrating future.
And guess what? So will you, if you follow PUA advice.
Why Pickup Artist Tricks Suck
Why doesn’t PUA advice work? Well, let me count the ways…
For the purposes of this guide, the main PUA “trap” is that it’s one-size-fits-all.
They teach you certain techniques… and then expect you to use them from the first “hello” all the way after “I do.”
You see, it doesn’t work that way. You might have experienced it yourself.
You might have been in a relationship that started out magically…
…but soon everything went to hell, even if you didn’t change your approach.
You may not have realized, but that relationship went to hell BECAUSE you didn’t change your approach.
Different Relationship Stages Need Different Strategies
The truth is this:
You need to use specific techniques at specific phases in your relationship.
Each set of techniques moves you through the current phase into the next one, on and on until she’s yours forever.
That’s how things are supposed to be. Different relationship stages will need different strategies to work.
And in this guide, you’ll learn how it’s done. Continue reading…
Four Phases Of A Relationship
So, let’s get to the gist of this guide: what are the phases of a relationship?
Answer: There are four –
- The Intrigue phase, where you pique a woman’s curiosity and make her want to know you better;
- The Rapport phase, where she starts liking you, trusting you… and then wondering if you’d make a great lover;
- The Attraction phase, where she falls in love with you and wants to get into a relationship with you; and
- The Enslavement phase, where she decides with all her heart and soul to stay with you for the rest of her life.
In Shogun Method, we call this the IRAE Model. (Intrigue, Rapport, Attraction, Enslavement.)
The rules of the IRAE Model are simple:
- You go through the Model one phase at a time
- You go through the phases in sequence
- You do NOT skip any of the phases, ever
So, here’s how you’ll move through one IRAE phase or stage to the next:
By using the specific techniques RELEVANT to that phase.
Shogun Method Techniques (For Each IRAE Model)
Details are in the core Shogun Method program, but here’s something to give you an idea:
- In the Intrigue phase, your goal is to grab her attention and get her to engage you in conversation. The main technique you’ll use here is the “Intrigue Ping.”
- In the Rapport phase, your goal is to make her like you and trust you more than her closest friend. The techniques you’ll use here include “Barnum Statements” and “Mirroring.”
- In the Attraction phase, your goal is to make her fall in love with you. The techniques you’ll use in this phase include “Implanted Commands” and “Devalidation.”
- In the Enslavement phase, your goal is to make her feel emotionally addicted to you for life. The techniques you’ll use here include “Segregation” and the “Black Rose Sequence.”
If you find it a bit overwhelming, that’s because it is.
Trying to master Shogun Method in one day is like trying to drink from a fire hose. It’s true…
…and that’s why most Shogun Method students usually take a few weeks to get proficient.
Is there a shortcut to the whole process? No.
Well, guess what? There IS one technique you can use in all four phases of the relationship.
So, if you only had time to learn one Shogun Method technique, it would have to be THIS one.
Find out what this technique is in the next section…
The ONE Technique To Rule Them All
So what’s this one technique that can be used in all four phases of a relationship?
It’s called Fractionation. It’s a storytelling technique that puts women on emotional rollercoasters.
By “emotional rollercoasters,” I mean intensifying cycles of positive and negative emotions:
- Pain and pleasure
- Pressure and release
- Stress and relief
- Dread and reassurance
Fractionation works by exploiting a flaw in the female brain. And that flaw is its vulnerability to emotional rollercoasters.
Put another way – women are hard-wired to feel ADDICTED to emotional rollercoasters.
Of course, men have the same addiction, but on a lesser degree…
If you’ve ever felt addicted to a TV show, a good book, a movie series, a sports team… you have your brain to blame.
Now here’s the thing:
Women feel that addiction ten times more powerfully.
They’re wired to need it, want it, and even look for it if they don’t have it. (And yes, most women do NOT know why.)
Now, if you use Fractionation on your woman… she’ll feel the exact same addiction she has to Fifty Shades Of Grey.
Except in this story, she’ll feel more and more addicted to YOU.
How would you like THAT?
Fractionation is awesome. Believe me. Try it once and you’ll see how powerful it really is.
It steadily moves your relationship forward, from one phase to the next, until she decides:
“I want to spend the rest of my life with this wonderful man.”
If you want her to one day make that decision with you, then I invite you to learn Fractionation today.
How? By joining my Online Masterclass on Mind Control. It teaches Fractionation as its core principle.

Now, you might be thinking:
“Emotional rollercoasters? You mean I have to make her feel negative emotions, too? I’m not sure I want to do that…”
I’ll be clear here – Yes, you’ll need to make her feel negative emotions, too.
The good news is this: We’re talking only about EMOTIONAL pain.
I never, ever advocate inflicting physical pain. That’s just weak.
And emotional pain – that’s something women actually look for once in a while.
(If you’ve ever wondered why they’re hooked on grating TV dramas like Grey’s Anatomy – well, now you know.)
Still, if you feel it’s not for you, don’t worry about it. Shogun Method isn’t for everyone.
Just remember, though – your alternative route is following PUA advice. And as you already know, that road leads to pain, frustration, and failure.
