This consumer mentality applies to everything from the technology we get caught up in, to the food we consume, and even the relationships we get involved in.And the emptier we feel, the hungrier we are, the lonelier we become – the more impulsive our decision making.
At 34, my English professor had met and become engaged to her husband, a widower with two young children — in the course of three weeks!We fear that we’ll feel like a fool for making ourselves so vulnerable if things don’t work out. You were taking a shot on something that could have been special.It’s rare two people meet who feel so instantly linked—you deserve a gold star for being brave and seeing where that went. But if it does, it was going to happen if you waited 6 months to sleep together as well. Because humans are why people often lose interest in each other after sex, but hey—better to know if that is the case now than longer down the line! But I would avoid ridiculous rules like “no sex for 90 days” or until date #20.Three months after that we were engaged, and another three months down the road, we said our vows on a rainy September afternoon.Nearly eight years later, we're happily married with four children. Other times, however, a fast-moving relationship is more like a runaway train headed for a washed-out bridge.
