When you meet someone new and you're totally smitten, sometimes a relationship can move too fast. Even if you're not looking to go from zero to 60 in record time and you actually want to take it slow, when you're really feeling it for someone you can lose control of the situation. Then, before you know it, it's only been a few weeks and you're already talking about moving in together. Which, although great because being in love is awesome, moving too quickly can sometimes doom the relationship.
"I call them microwave romances," board-certified psychiatrist Dr. Susan Edelman, tells Bustle. "They progress at lightning speed and typically explode in your face... don't forget how sexy taking things slowly can be."
While there's no guarantee that a relationship that moves too quickly will absolutely, positively end just as quickly as it came to be, taking it slow is usually a far better option than racing through it; it's not as though there's some invisible finish line you need to get to, so taking your time to really relish in those fun beginning moments is something worth considering. Because once that honeymoon phase of a relationship is over, it's not coming back.
So, is your new relationship moving too quickly? Here are eight signs that it is and it's time to pull back a bit, according to experts.
