How Soon is Too Soon For a Relationship?
How soon is too soon for a relationship? We’ve been throwing this topic around for a while now, and most recently talked about it with a few friends of ours the other night.
More often than not, we see a lot of people including our good friends, jumping into relationships with people within a few weeks. Now, we have nothing against people getting into relationships, and nothing especially against the people in them, but can you really get to know someone in few weeks?
It seems as though people are more fixated on a label and “owning” the other person, instead of actually getting to know someone, and then figuring out if they want to take it to the next level.
We asked people what they feel is an appropriate length of time is to know someone before jumping into a relationship, and the answers ranged from 2 weeks to 6 months. Personally, I think 4- 6 months is the perfect amount of time to figure out if the person that you’re dating is someone who you want to get serious with or not. By that time you’ve experienced the highs and the lows of how you two work out, and have a better grasp at seeing if you can or want to create something more.
Now this doesn’t mean that we don't approve of the people that are involved in the relationship. Quite the contrary. We just hate to see people we give a shit about jumping into relationships that may end up fizzling out.
Be smart and figure out what you actually want out of a relationship before jumping in. Remember there are relationships and relation shits. Use the relationship as a vessel that will take both of you into something better than what you could have accomplished by yourselves.
But then again, I’m just a single guy, writing a blog. What would I know right? ;)
What do you think? Is less than a month enough to call someone your boyfriend/girlfriend? Or do you think it should be longer? Hit us up on Facebook or leave us a comment here to let us know!
