What does NRE mean?

New relationship energy

‘NRE’ is a cool slang term that captures the thrilling rush of starting a new romantic relationship. It stands for that amazing time when everything seems perfect and love is in the air. This stage is often called the “honeymoon period”.

People use NRE in different ways. Maybe your friend Alex teases you and says, “How’s Sarah? Still caught up in NRE?” Or you might see a post of your buddy and his new girlfriend, and comment, “Ah, that sweet NRE phase. Enjoy it before you’re juggling kids and soccer practice.”

NRE is also a common term in online forums, especially those focused on relationships – and not just traditional ones, but polyamorous ones too. For instance, someone asking for advice might get the response, “It’s all fun and games until the NRE phase is over.”
