Speed is of the essence in our modern age of fast-swipe online dating.
So much so that the process of swiping, matching, and chatting can feel like a race to to that great (or not so great, depending) finish line we call a date.
So how do we align our speeds so that everyone feels happy and comfortable without ruining the momentum entirely? Usually, I think the culprit for things moving too fast is excitement.
While you might be feeling stressed or panicked, if you can take a beat, you’ll see that the person who is possibly rushing you is likely doing it with good, pure intentions.
**Side note, if this is not the case and you’re feeling pressured into anything you’re not comfortable with, put that pretty foot down now and acknowledge that behavior head-on.
Know yourself well enough, especially your drives, dreams, life goals, so that you can seek someone who will enhance them, not trample them.3.
Understand that in a relationship you will be influenced and you will "lose" part of yourself.
Unfortunately for you, when it comes to dating and finding romance, you may be listening to the part of your brain that urges you to "be fruitful and multiply." These are the hormones your brain secretes when it wants to mate.
