Online dating taking things slow
While there’s nothing more fun and exciting than starting a new romance, there’s a lot to be said for slowing things down and letting them develop naturally instead of being in such a rush. Getting carried away might blind you to some glaring red flags.
The “cohabitation effect,” as it’s called, occurs because many people who live together before getting engaged slide into marriage through a process of inertia.
In fact, when people say they want to “take it slow,” it almost seems like they’re doing you a favor by being straight up, but they’re probably not.
Here’s what it could really mean, according to Reddit bros and the Galore staff’s experience. Read all about it here, but basically it means you can’t form feelings for someone if you have sex with them too soon.
You’ve most likely had the experience of dating a guy for a month or two, being really into him, and then one day your feelings have just evaporated and it’s like kissing your brother.
Go slow this time and avoid the dreaded almost-relationship. Unfortunately, in today’s hook-up culture, just because we’re dating someone it doesn’t mean we’re headed for a serious commitment.
