Oh man, doesn’t rushing ruin relationships?

  • Sharebar

Even if you’re already in a relationship, this relationship mistake can be instructive.

We’ve all seen it - time is ‘running out’, biological clocks are noisily ticking like estrogen-filled time bombs threatening to explode, and panic sets in. Suddenly, anyone with a pulse and clean(ish) fingernails starts to seem like a ‘good bet’.

‘Wanting a relationship’ is not the same as wanting to be in a relationship with a particular person. If you get too hung up on wanting ‘a relationship’ as a general idea, you may fall into the trap of:

  • Flinging yourself at the first vaguely available (or non-available) creature to enter the room.
  • Putting potential partners off if they sense you’re as desperate as Gollum was for the One Ring.

What to do: Remember the words of the song ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’ and don’t.

Octogenarians can still hook up, so slow down. Starting a relationship with someone ‘just because’ is like setting out on a voyage without checking for rot, poor engine performance, sea worthiness, and your legal rights.

And in the long run, if you have one eye on the stopwatch, starting up with the wrong person wastes more time.

Take your time, and time will help you.
