Falling in love after a month of dating
Some people fall in love much quicker than others; but I’m close to believing that if it takes you more than six months to decide what you want from a person, the connection just isn’t there.The rule is: if one person wants a relationship and the other hasn’t decided what they want, there should be a time limit on how long you should be tied up in the dating zone.So if a man can’t figure out if he wants to officially commit to me after months of serious dating, I choose to believe he won’t decide by me lingering around “playing” girlfriend for too long.Many times, we can save ourselves the heartache by knowing simply when it’s time to exit a situation. Or for my no-nonsense girls, maybe you give a man three months to decide.Situations like this one influenced my decision to develop my own six-month rule.If I am spending a lot of time around a man and we are ‘playing couple’ without a commitment, I’ve decided that after six months, playtime is over.Learn more about how Oath collects and uses data and how our partners collect and use data.Select ' OK' to allow Oath and our partners to use your data, or ' Manage options' to review our partners and your choices.

Most would agree that this is one of the keys to a healthy relationship; but someone should have also put a time cap on the ‘friend zone.’ While it is usually recommended to take your time to get to know the person you potentially want to be with, is there such a thing as getting to know them too long before making a commitment? Sure, taking it slow is the responsible thing to do; but taking it too slow is usually a waste of someone’s time.
Whatever the reason, one thing was clear: we were not going to be together.
If it hadn’t happened in 365 days, what made me think that on day 366, my year-long wish would be granted?
