Starting a new love after a while of dating can cause stress for anybody. This is because you don’t know how the relationship could turn out or what you’re going to get. Investing in a relationship that is based on faith or hope that they will be good for you will only set you up for failure. Would you buy a car based on its looks and physical appearance? Or would you consider the details and everything else that comes with the package?
Here are three ways on how to survive dating and find love.
Don’t get serious too fast
Breathing the words “I love you” or “you’re the one” during the first few months will only lead you towards trouble. Instead of trying to make something happen by force, take a step back and relax. Keep your expectations as realistic, even if this may be difficult to do so with a great connection. Allow the relationship to building up and naturally create something more.
Don’t get intimate so soon
As 95% of dating doesn’t plan on waiting for marriage to get intimate in their relationship, don’t jump into bed until after several dates. Allow yourself to get to know the person on a conversational level without the physical attention getting in the way. Everyone loves sex, but no relationship will last one just sex alone. See how emotionally compatible you are before you allow the sexual hormones to take over your brain.
Don’t introduce family or friends to your date
Keep friends and family in the dark until you reach a solid month of dating and seeing each other. After a few weeks, you can get to know your new interest better on a single ground without any influence from others.
Building a relationship isn’t easy for anyone and falling in love is just as hard to manage. But if you slow down and give yourself time to enjoy the person, you will create the best insurance to invest your feelings in.
