Love??? Part 2

Well it seems I have a boyfriend for the first time in forever.  It wasn’t my idea.  I thought I would date a while and things would progress in a normal way.  I had it all planned out.  Life is full of surprises!

My boyfriend (??? really ???) has green eyes and brown hair.  He’s 6 ft. 2.  I never went out with someone that tall before.  I think he’s mostly of German descent.  He wants to see me all the time but I need time to do other things!  It’s going too fast for me, actually but I don’t know how to slow it down.  It’s flattering having someone in your life that thinks you are the best thing since sliced bread!  It’s fun when someone wants to spend money on you and plan a future with you.  Still, I have never lived with a man before other than my husband or my brothers or my dad.  And I really don’t know anything about him.

It feels a little too good to be true.

    Is this the same guy as in your last post? It seems like he’s pushing awfully hard, awfully fast. Be careful with that … he could be over-controlling.

    Having said that, I once moved in with a guy 4 days after we met! That lasted for three years, and we parted amicably.

    Please take it real slow. Please. Good relationships have a strong foundation of time under them. You were doing good before you met this guy, so you’ll do okay if he moves on when he realizes that you move through life at your pace and not his. Honestly, I’ve discovered that fast moving guys who claim you as their girlfriend before you even realize you want a boyfriend are manipulators. Please be careful.

    I’m with B and kind of with Charlotte on this one. Fast moving guys worry me a lot. What’s their hurry? However, having said that, I met my current guy nearly five years ago, and first went on a major roadtrip with him after only knowing him for a couple months, then when we got back to SoCal, we moved in together right way. I believe that traveling together is a great way to quickly discover if you are compatible. But I’m not suggesting you either go on a major road trip nor move in together quickly. I think it doesn’t work out more times than it does, though I also admit that I’ve only tried it this once and it seems to have worked fine. I’m so confused. I’ll just close by saying: listen to your gut, not your heart.
