So, you have started a new relationship, and you will experience a storm of emotions. You both love each other very much, but the commitment to your partner is growing. You may have known each other for only a few weeks, but you already understand that the relationship is developing too quickly. Perhaps your partner suggested moving in with him and starting to live together. Or he wants to introduce him to his parents and start a family life. There is nothing wrong with that, but if it’s not what you want deep down, then you won’t know what to do next.
In any case, the development of relations usually follows a certain path. But problems arise when this path becomes forced or hasty. Each couple has their own pace of development of the relationship. There are times when this pace becomes inappropriate for you and you become extremely anxious because you feel pressure and discomfort. So let’s look at some signs that a relationship is progressing too quickly. And let’s talk about what needs to be done in this situation.
1. Your main life plans begin to change
The first telltale sign that you are both in a rush in a relationship is that you have to make huge life changes for the sake of your loved one. Although you’ve only known each other for a few weeks or months. For example, if you give up your goals and aspirations in life. You want to leave your friends and family and go to a city where you don’t know anyone. That is, you turn your life upside down for the sake of a new partner. In this case, you need to slow down and take a close look at what is happening.
Sometimes we can fall in love so much that we begin to commit rash acts, because of which we suffer a lot afterwards. Therefore, if you begin to radically change your own life path for the sake of a loved one, then your relationship is developing too quickly, and you need to slow down a little. Try to find a balance between your life aspirations and romantic relationships. Discuss the situation openly. Of course, if you want to get happiness and pleasure from the relationship.
2. You spend all your time and resources with a partner
Similar to what was said above. If you give up your own hobbies, spend less time with friends, and deprive yourself of many other useful and interesting aspects of life for the sake of a new partner, then the situation escalated very quickly, and you need to change something.
There is nothing wrong with spending a lot of time with your loved one. It’s part of a romantic relationship. However, when it has a serious impact on your life, on your interests and on those close to you. Then you should think about it and slow down the fast pace of the relationship a little. In order not to “lose yourself” and your loved ones.
Take your time to rapidly develop a relationship. Take every step wisely and use common sense.
3. There are too many obstacles to your love.
One of the signs that a relationship is developing too quickly is a feeling of struggle. It seems to you that this is some kind of meaningless challenge. For example, you want to find a place to live together, but nothing comes of it. Your friends and family are discouraged from this relationship. And it becomes more and more difficult to find a common language with a partner.
Sometimes this happens even in strong relationships. It’s all because you’re both in a hurry. So take some time to get to know each other better and assess the situation. Slow down a little, and calmly think about how you best develop this relationship so that similar problems do not arise in the future? And is it worth developing them at all?
It will also help you understand that you are simply “fighting” for your love. And trying to make the relationship work despite all the difficulties. You become overly obsessed with this relationship. And you just do not understand that you need to slow them down, or completely break them.
4. Not enough free time
If you have a feeling that you should constantly spend time together, or the other person himself requires it. Then you should seriously think about the situation that has arisen. Never lose your personality in a relationship. This is a bad idea, especially in the long run. Always give each other time for their own hobbies and interests. Don’t forget to meet your friends and family. Learn to give freedom in relationships. Thanks to this, you can better think about the further development of the union, and become a more objective person.
5. Disputes and conflicts arise
You may be arguing about the pace of your relationship. Because one of you proposes to start living together, and the other side is not ready yet. As a result, this leads to controversy and discontent. Because one of you is simply not ready to take the next step. In this case, you need to slow things down and really think about where your relationship is headed. You don’t have to impose your expectations and desires. You will not achieve anything by this.
6. You want to forget your past love
This may seem like an odd sign that the relationship is progressing too quickly. But in fact, many people start to rapidly develop new relationships because they want to forget the past. They want to experience those feelings of love and commitment again. Therefore, they subconsciously push themselves and their new passion to move faster. Obviously, there is nothing wrong with the transition to another relationship. But make sure you do it with awareness and have no ulterior motives.
7. You start making or demanding promises
If your partner is trying to come up with different ways to get you to agree to live together or get married, then you probably need to stop and reevaluate your relationship. Basically, moving forward doesn’t have to be demanding or spontaneous. Ideally, these should be deliberate actions. And you both should want to develop this union. But if you have to convince a loved one of something, then something in your relationship is clearly developing wrong.
8. Both of you are “on a different wavelength”
Finally, if both of you simply do not understand each other, or are on a different wavelength in terms of the development of your union. And in general, you have different views and desires in a relationship. For example, you notice the surprise on the face of your new crush when you picture him / her as a boyfriend or girlfriend at a party. Or you feel uncomfortable when friends ask about the development of your relationship and you have nothing to answer. Besides, such questions just annoy you.
In fact, these are not just signs that the relationship is progressing too quickly. These are signs of deeper relationship problems that need to be addressed if you want to be together. Because, the further, the more difficult it will be to adapt to life with such an approach, and build a successful union with this person.
