Taking things slow while dating

We are able to have real conversations, nothing fake.

I am so happy that I started things slow with him because it truly took the pressure off of each of us.

College started, and our talking stopped until one night I decided to start things back up with him. We have had our struggles here and there because of the distance, but not once have we decided that we are not meant for each other.

If people read our texts, they would just assume we were friends. We don’t have the sappy, lovey-dovey texts that everyone would assume would be in a conversation between a boyfriend and girlfriend.

One month in, I asked him what he thought about being exclusive.

(We had sex on the first date, BTW, don’t know if that would make a huge difference.) We spend every weekend together and usually one night during the week and he calls or texts me everyday just to say hi.

I also told him if he didn’t see things going anywhere, he needed to let me know and I would do the same for him.

I felt comfortable around him and I wanted to get to know him on a deeper level.

With high school coming to an end, we never really attempted to date because there was no point since we both would be attending different colleges.

We are so quick to jump to the opportunity of having a boyfriend in our lives, that we end up making a decision that is not what’s best for us.

The boys I dated in high school all ended up leading to short relationships because I did not build a friendship before becoming committed to them.
