You want to pace yourself while dating to give yourself time to observe the man.
You may feel this big connection going on, but the truth is, you can feel a strong connection to the wrong man just as easily as you can feel a connection to the right man.
Feeling a connection does not equal he is the man for you.
I see too many women claiming to feel this connection, they get attached and the man just stops calling or texting, yet they continue to hold onto hope.
Pacing yourself while dating is for the purpose of observing!
