So, you meet a guy. Or you meet a girl. And you like them. You feel like, "Maybe this could go somewhere..."
Nowadays, it's common to go through this unknown phase of "talking".
It's this phase that often leaves you texting your friends asking, "What does this mean?" or "Should I be worried about [insert some cryptic text/some description of some Snapchat]"
Maybe I'm old-fashioned. Maybe I'm a hopeless romantic, but I absolutely hate this phase.
Wait, let me explain...
Say you've "talked" to a person for a few weeks, maybe gone out with them... When you get to know a person, you begin to see their flaws, or the little things that irritate you about that person.
Okay, so you begin to talk to someone new, someone you haven't "talked" to for weeks, gone out with... And you haven't begun to pick out their flaws. They're more exciting than the one you've begun to get to know.
You could argue and say, "If I'm interested in the new person, why would I stick with the old?"
The reason would be because you could meet someone who could really make you happy, but you pass up on that person because you're not dedicated in getting to know them. You're distracted.
I'm not saying commit to someone right away, but I am saying give yourself a chance to really get to know this person. Give it a chance. Give it some time. Because if you don't and you pass this person up for someone "fresh", that "fresh" person might not be what you expected.
