A sure sign that a relationship is moving too quickly is if you have trouble making decisions without your partner early on. Its not uncommon for people to lose themselves in their relationship, and over time couples find themselves dressing, speaking and even acting in a similar manner.
How quickly should a relationship progress?
As long as the couple is aligned in terms of timing and expectations, its all good. So if you and your partner are ready to get serious three or four months into your relationship, go for it. As long as youre both ready and youre both on the same page, a quicker pace might be OK for your relationship.
Why moving too fast in a relationship is bad?
Moving too fast can be a risky move. The honeymoon phase of a relationship is both a blessing and a curse. Sure, theres bliss and plenty of amazing emotions, but the phase can also cause you to be blinded by a partners flaws or toxic behaviors. This can ultimately lead to the downfall of a relationship.
When does the newness of a relationship wear off?
Its important to recognize that relationships go through seasons, Noelle Cordeaux, relationship coach and CEO of JRNI, tells Bustle. The crazy endorphins that come with new love last for only 12 to 18 months.
