Well, "months" is a relative thing with Days when we have days that last for weeks sometimes. But, Stephanie did go to the Kiriakis mansion on Halloween to talk to Philip (just a day or so after the break-up with Max), so it has been a couple of months since Stax broke up and they put Stephanie in Philip's orbit. The almost kiss in the vault was mid-December, so that's about a month and a half of establishing a friendship between the two (the visit to the mansion, drunk Stephanie, they convo at the gym, Philip offering the internship, the Nick stuff) before it moved to a different level.

I'll be the first to admit that's a far cry from the old days when it was 6 months before a couple shared their first kiss. But, in terms of how things work these days, it's a fair amount of pre-romance set-up. I'd like it to be longer and I would have loved if they had allowed the relationship to grow more gradually, but I've given up hoping for that stuff anymore. It's far from perfect, but I'll take at least some minimal set-up over the truly "insta-love" of Lucas and Chloe or Chloe and Daniel, or Kate and Daniel, or Chelsea and Daniel, etc., etc.
