All good things happen in time, but you’ve got to be willing to let that time pass! Getting into a relationship too quickly can have some not so great consequences, which is why before you go rushing into anything you need this guide. Trust us.
1. Commitment Isn’t For Everyone
How was your last relationship? If you’re the type who falls hard and fast, but then starts wandering once the “relationship” term gets thrown around then this isn’t for you. Period. Be honest with yourself about whether committing right now is something you’re ready for…and most importantly something you actually want.
2. It Takes Time to REALLY Know Someone
It’s great to feel an instant connection with somebody new, but the truth is it takes a lot of time before you actually know someone. Rushing into a relationship when you don’t even know your partner’s friends yet (let alone their favourite colour) isn’t the greatest idea. Relationships are awesome, but they’re also a lot of work and you want to be sure that you’re in one with someone you know and trust to do that work with you.
3. Relationships Are Work!
Being in a relationship has its perks, but it’s not all sweet moments and regular sex 24/7! Relationships ask a lot of the people in them, and you’ve got to be sure that you’re ready to put the work in (with a partner that you can trust). Before you jump into anything it’s a good idea to ask yourself how ready you truly are for something that tests you.
4. Breakups Ain’t Easy
Not to be the ultimate Debbie Downer, but remember the last time you broke up with someone? It probably wasn’t the greatest feeling in the world! Breakups can end up being seriously brutal, and if this rushed-in romance doesn’t work out you’ll find yourself smack dab in the middle of one. There’s always a chance that things will go exactly the way you think they will, relationships that happen super fast don’t usually end well.
5. You Could Come Off Crazy
You might want analyse what’s going on in your dating situation because if you’re the one suggesting a relationship too early on, things could get weird. Don’t go proposing commitment after only a handful of dates unless you want to come off crazy and scare the other person away. Seriously, not a good look!
