Dating and relationships are much different now than they used to be.
Now, we must be discerning and evaluate people before allowing them to be part of our life.
Love at first sight is a thing of the past, thanks to this era of social media and peoples’ attention spans being the same as a goldfish (that’s actually been scientifically proven).
So, what this means for us is that we can no longer go on two or three dates with someone and try to form an instant relationship or plan a future with someone we barely know.
Or try to form a deep friendship with that coworker because we went to lunch with them a couple of times.
We need boundaries and self-protection more than ever.
Most of the people we meet are not compatible with what we want from our close relationships.
Because we feel connected with someone after a few dates does not, in any way, mean that they feel the same way.
Because you may be intimate with them does NOT mean they are planning a future with you or intend to be exclusive.
Don’t go all in with someone you’ve seen a couple of times just because of the excitement and butterflies. Life is not a Disney movie…we need to be choosy about who we allow into our sacred space.
