Celebrating Christmas Or New Year

As Houston matchmakers, we love nothing more than a good love story. Is your love story your happily ever after?

You hit it off right from the very first date. For weeks, you’ve been texting and bonding over romantic dates and cuddly movie nights at home. Oh, this must be your true soulmate.

One month later and things are on the next level. You’re now talking about moving in together. You’re on the phone making reservations with the moving company and then it hits you: are you moving too fast?

We’ve all been there before. If you’re struggling to stay grounded amidst a new relationship, our Houston matchmakers are here for you.

If you’re starting to question if your new relationship if moving too fast, read on. Here are the telltale warning signs you’re moving things along too fast.

1. You’ve already met their parents.

If you’ve been on just a few dates and you’re meeting their parents, take a step back. It is too soon to meet the parents this early on. You need to have a better understanding of who you’re dating, what their story is all about, and if you are compatible with each other.

Meeting their friends and family is like entering a whole new world. Before entering this new world, you must be sure you’re on the same page. Do you both have feelings for each other, or is it just casual?

2. You’re still healing from a breakup.

No one should bounce back to dating when they are still in the healing process of a breakup. Still have a broken heart? Our Houston matchmakers encourage you to grieve the loss and heal yourself. It is not fair to anyone involved to make them a rebound just because they’re available.

If this sounds like you, spend some time alone and discover what you like and who you are. That doesn’t mean you have to cut all ties with them. This is especially true if you were already friends. But you do need to take a timeout until you’re healed. You should be ready to welcome someone new into your life.

3. You haven’t had a fight yet.

As counterproductive as it sounds, fights are actually important to a relationship. Fights can be the foundation of a healthy relationship. They build trust, strengthen your connection with your partner and let you know how your partner is feeling. Not fighting doesn’t mean you’re 100% compatible with each other. It just means you’re still in the honeymoon stage. Furthermore, it can mean you’re not comfortable with each other yet.

You only learn what a person is really like when you’re in the middle of a fight. Here, you learn if you know how to fight maturely. You discover their style of conflict resolution and if you’re both respectful when times get tough. It’s only after you had your first big fight that you can see what your new partner is really all about.

4. You don’t know much about them.

Struggling to find out their dreams and goals? Not sure where they grew up? Still unsure if they love animals as much as you do? If that’s the case, you’re definitely moving too fast. That’s right, you need to slow down a little.

When we’re infatuated and doted over, we tend to overlook everything. But you need to learn everything you can about them. You don’t want to be seconds away from moving in together when you realize you don’t know anything about them.

5. You’re constantly checking in with each other.

More like checking up on each other. And when one of you doesn’t respond right away, it upsets the other. Or maybe you’re the type of person who tries to decipher their tone of voice from their texts. Or perhaps it’s them who is upset by your texting etiquette. Either way, it’s problematic for your relationship to constantly be using and checking in on each other via text and getting upset with the results. Furthermore, it shows you don’t trust each other or know each other well enough.

As Houston matchmakers with over 30 years in the business of love, we know it’s easy to get caught up in the rush. But a true love story is something to be savored. It’s not something that should be rushed.

How many of these signs do you see in your new relationship? Are you moving too fast? If so, slow down and let things progress naturally.

On the other hand, if you’re single and struggling to meet quality singles on your own, we can help. Our Houston matchmakers have an extensive database of relationship-minded local singles who are fit and ready to be in a relationship.
