Are you dating someone new? Then you will be tempted to force things to progress faster. It can be an exciting time, but do you think it’s wise to not take things slow? Think about it first if you do not want to regret it later on.
Take Things Slow To Know The Person’s True Intention
You might be asking yourself why it’s necessary to take things slow. That’s valid. Why would two people who obviously like one another take things slow? For what? In today’s dating scene, the hook-up culture is very rampant whether you want to admit it or not. So, taking things slow will reveal person’s true intentions. Aside from this, taking it a day at a time will allow you to build friendship and trust. But, how can you slow things down?
1. Control Your Own Speed
Before trying to control the situation, you must first control yourself. It’s understandable for you to feel all sorts of emotions. It’s about suppressing those emotions, but still showing them in a way that won’t be too much or too overwhelming for the relationship or the person you’re with.
2. Allow Everything To Happen Naturally
Never force or manipulate the situation to make things go faster. You have to admit, when you’re excited and in love, you have this tendency. Simply allow things to run its natural course. If it has not happened yet, it means that it’s not the right time for it.
3. Take Breaks
You don’t have to concentrate on building your relationship all the time. One of the perks of taking it slow is that you can focus on your own life. Do what you do, while maintaining that connection with the person you’re interested in.
Remember that taking things slow is not about parking yourself in the “friend-zone”. That’s probably why a lot of men and women jump into relationships and force things to go fast. The romantic connection is there, but you need to foster and nurture it to grow so your relationship will have a better chance of lasting forever.
