Dating moving too slow
Send a “I miss you” text too soon, ask him to go away for the weekend within only the first couple months, plan a second date within the same week as the first and your friends raise an eyebrow. Stories like those of our grandparents, meeting, falling in love and marrying within a year just don’t exist anymore. If that same guy texts you something like, “Is it weird that I miss you already? Allow yourself to enjoy the fact that there is clearly something special happening there.
And while, I personally don’t advocate rushing marriage, is it really so bad to rush other things? Someone doesn’t need to have been in your life for years to leave a very strong impression on you.
Some people have so much experience in the field of dating that they claim they don’t need a lot of time to figure out they have found the right person.
After only a few dates they know whether they have found the right one or not.
Don’t imagine long holidays away together, honeymoons, holidays with your family or living together if you don’t even know the guy yet.
It makes sense to proceed slowly and cautiously because once emotions get involved, it’s almost like all common sense goes out the window and we stop paying attention to those red flags that would’ve had us hitting the exits early on.
Ever find yourself missing a guy—I mean strongly noticing his absence and wishing he was there—after only a few dates? Travel time When you fall for someone, you instantly want to vacation with them.
That’s what new love birds want—to go away, cuddle and have sex all day in between meals, sleep, and maybe a few meals out of the hotel room.
You wouldn’t let a stranger into your house and give them carte blanche with all of your stuff and you wouldn’t give them total access to your bank account, just because you thought they were attractive.
So why do so many of us not take the same precautions when it comes to dating and relationships?
