How Slow Do You Go?
If you’re new to the dating scene after being in a relationship, you might be worried about coming on too strong – and that’s good.
By taking the time to realize that it’s not just about you – it shows that you’re ready to begin dating again.
But what do you do?
If there was a commandments of dating, everyone would be in a healthy and happy relationships, but there just aren’t. Until now, that is.
Without any burning tree, here are some dating commandments that you should keep in mind:
- Start slowly, get to know each other as friends first
- Be clear about who you are
- Be clear about what you want
- Ask about the other’s needs
- Talk about what you didn’t like in previous relationships
- Treat each other with respect
It’s always best to proceed slower than you think is necessary – physically and emotionally. This allows you to maintain each other’s space until someone decides that they have to say something.
And then you can move onto the next level.
Easy enough, right?
What about getting, ahem, physically close? This is a little touchier. Studies show that more than a third of new daters are willing to swing around the bases within the first few dates, but you might want to realize that it isn’t necessary.
In fact, sometimes waiting is the best love potion.
If you do think that you’re ready, talk with your partner first, get protected, and have fun. If you’re happy and healthy, that’s really all that matters.
