Everyone likes the feeling of falling in love. They relish the sensation of giddy butterflies and how every text from their new beau makes them smile. You probably know the feeling when every moment with your new love is a priceless treasure. You might also remember feeling like every second you were not with your new significant other was a second that was being wasted. You were planning the wedding by the third date because you felt you two were so perfectly matched. Maybe you even moved in together after knowing each other for only a short period of time despite the concerns of friends and family who believed you were moving in with a person who was, essentially, a complete stranger.
Rushing into love is not an uncommon phenomenon even though it can be an enormous problem. Falling too far, too fast for another person can lead, at best, to a broken heart. When you decide to move in with them or are convinced that marriage is just around the corner, you might find yourself holding the bag for a two person apartment or dealing with a baby neither of you were really ready to raise. Simply telling yourself to slow down, however, is not always enough. You may simply be the sort of person who always wants to throw themselves headfirst into a romance. If that is the case, do not despair. There are still steps you can take to stop rushing into love.
