It’s the time of year again when everyone’s in a rush to get boo’d up and find a snuggle buddy for the cold months ahead. But before you hurry into a relationship, you might want to rethink your timeline of finding love. Yes, there’s nothing wrong with desiring a relationship and wanting to find love, but like all things, timing is key.
You deserve to find someone who has everything you’re looking for and more, so instead of rushing the process, don’t be afraid to take things slow. Good things come to those who wait, right? So here’s some motivation to help remind you of the power of your timing!
1. Rushing can cloud your emotions.
When you’re eager to find “the one,” it’s easy to let your emotions get the best of you. Instead, give yourself space to actually feel a person out and let your feelings settle, and then determine if this person could be the one for you.
2. Taking things slowly allows you to get to know people better.
If you’re rushing through all the important stages of getting to know each other, then things can get awkward real quick. When you get to know people, you can pay attention to the green flags and easily spot the red.
3. Sparks don’t always equal soulmates.
You’ve just met someone, and the sparks are flying off the walls. But wait! A good connection doesn’t automatically mean a good relationship. For all you know, this person could still be a terrible partner. So, take your time, and see if the connection is genuine before you rush to move forward.
4. Waiting helps avoid relationship burnout.
If rushing has led you to bad relationship after relationship, then eventually, you’re going to be too tired even to put yourself out there. So preserve your energy and time for the right person to come along, and don’t spend it all on people who aren’t even worth it.
It might seem like love will never come, but love works on its own timing, and that’s 100% okay. Just trust the process and slow things down.
