The initial boning period or IBP refers to the (typically) one to two months at the start of a relationship where the protagonist is able to overlook physical or mental imperfections of his/her partner simply because they are having sexual relations with them. Once the IBP has past, the relationship will either fail or one actually has to like the other person involved.
I can feel I'm nearing the end of the initial boning period - her cross-eyes and halitosis are really starting to annoy me. I'd really rather just play with myself.
