Why we rush to define a relationship too soon

Have you ever been told to calm down, chill out, be cool or just relax when it comes to dating or meeting someone new? I can’t even count the amount of times I heard those statements from others when I was dating and looking for my soul mate. I lacked faith and confidence and did not have a deep enough connection to myself to know that I’d be okay whether the relationship had a label or not. Read More
