Is moving too fast in dating a problem for you? Do you get your hopes up only to have them dashed no, obliterated soon after? If you move too fast, you’re certainly not alone. Moving too quickly early in dating is one of the most widespread dating problems for men and women alike. I’ll point out the main signs that you’re rushing things, and provide a no-nonsense explanation of why you’re doing it so that you can have that a-ha moment and actually change your approach to dating.
Why you do it: If you idealize romantic partners when you first meet them, it’s often a sign that you have been burned or neglected emotionally in the past, and that you’re holding out hopes that someone can magically fill the voids. Remember, the best way to overcome lonely feelings is to cautiously approach new individuals in the following way: You wait for the right one so that you don’t have to keep starting and then stopping, and starting yet again with someone new. How exhausting, right?
You want to meet your new date’s friends or family members as soon as possible. When you meet someone you like, it’s perfectly normal to want to learn more about that person, including the people in her life. While that desire is totally understandable, it should be a mild desire. For men and women who move too fast in dating, they really, really want to meet their new date’s friends or family. They want to set plans for barbecues, dinners or social activities where they can meet all the major players in their date’s life – and they want to do it quickly.
