If you want your relationship to be as fast as the express delivery for your Zalora package then sadly, you're going to be heartbroken real fast.
Congratulations on finding love again. No, really, give yourself a pat on the back for giving love a first (or second chance) because it's not easy to open up to just about anyone and realise that you have that incredible connection. Right?
Let's cut the sappy smiles and get real for a second. How long have you been dating this guy (read: girl, if you're a guy reading this)? About two weeks? Maybe a month at most? And you've probably told all your friends and family about him and gushed about how 'in love' you are with each other. Your notebooks are filled with not only his name but your name with his last name, come on people we're not in high school anymore, and you spend half your time staring at him.
We get it though, we really do. How easy it is to get carried away when you're in love with all that oxytocin flowing through your system. But the problem with going too fast is when the happy bubble bursts and you're left with doubts and regrets.
If you're rushing your relationship for one of these few reasons then chances are, you're not looking at a happy-ever-after story. Plus, people do some pretty crazy (read: stupid) things when they're in love.
You need to be codependant
There are people who are nice and there are people who are “too nice”. Yes, such people do exist. According to Harley Therapy, A codependent personality means you take your sense of self worth from pleasing others. Your need to be liked will drive you headlong into relationships. You spend your time finding someone who you think you can “fix”. It’s a typical good girl meets bad boy and good girl hopes that bad boy will change for her but honey, this ain’t a fairytale. Stories like that are what they are – stories. By thinking that you can fix them, you come on too strong and you push your way into their lives and speed up the relationship.
