Some people have no problem letting themselves fall head-over-heels for someone almost immediately. That’s great for them, but it’s not really my thing. This is why I’d much rather take things slow instead of rushing head-first into love:
1. LOVE IS SCARY.
Falling in love is absolutely terrifying! It’s pretty intimidating to know that another person has to be as invested as you are in order for the relationship to work. All it takes is one big mistake to ruin the whole relationship. I’d much rather take things slowly so I know what I’m getting into instead of getting hurt by rushing in too fast.
2. I’M DETERMINED TO STAY TRUE TO WHO I AM.
I refuse to pick a guy that I want to spend time with who doesn’t match up with my values, and finding out that information can take a long time. My guard will most definitely be up until I’ve established that the same things are important to both of us.
