Almost two years ago, a guy I was head-over-heels in love with broke up with me quite suddenly. We saw each other for days at a time but often weeks apart. Being with him was easy—we seemed to approach life the same way and were constantly laughing, touching, and talking. He taught me about beer, and I taught him a little French.

What to do when he reappears after disappearing?
It's so easy to get swept up in the rush of lovey-dovey feelings you get from dating someone new. But according to experts, it's pretty important to stay grounded during the first three months of dating. Because as amazing as those new love feels are, those first 90 days can determine whether or not your new relationship is the real thing or has an expiration date. Although every relationship differs, three months is considered to be the average length of the first stage of a relationship. According to psychotherapist and relationship coach, Toni Coleman, LCSW , you should be ideally making that transition from "casually dating" to "exclusive" around that time.

I don't know whether it was the noir-inspired hair, or the fact that I read too many Agatha Christie books as a kid, but suddenly, I became obsessed with figuring out the key to this mystery. Fortunately, or maybe unfortunately, I had to look no further than my own friends, and my own dating dalliances for cases that would give me some insight into what I call The Casper Effect.
