Dating moving too quickly
There is no denying that it can be risky and you could have your heart crushed if this person ends up not being “the one.” But think about it: the worst thing that can happen is you experienced something amazing and intense and it had to end.If you go in fearlessly and end up together twenty years down the line, you can say you knew it from the beginning.A million red flags went up: Is he one of those people who is always in a relationship? On top of all this, he doesn’t have a Facebook, so I added “murderer” to the list of things that could possibly drive a person to want to spend that much time with me so quickly.And yet, I found myself feeling exactly the same way. Our first date had been simultaneously fun and comfortable. It was something I wanted, something that made me happy, but, because of all the warnings on the Interwebs about moving too fast, I felt like it was wrong.
You get to be vulnerable with someone and have them be vulnerable in return.
I know this is beyond cliche, but there was such a strong, instantaneous connection that it just felt natural to hang out with him the next day. I gave myself a million reasons why I shouldn’t continue at break-neck speed with my new beau.
Maybe I had rose-tinted glasses on and was missing some glaringly obvious reason as to why this was going to crash and burn.
Don’t get me wrong, it is important to protect your heart and listen to your friends if several of them are spotting red flags.
But if you find yourself completely twitterpated over someone in the near future, why not just go for it?Being vulnerable is tough, and I feel like that is putting it lightly.
