DON’T get in too deep, too quickly. I know, as I have made this mistake on a number of occasions. Many of us can identify with the exciting early days of a new relationship, when you simply can’t get enough of each other. You are infatuated and commit to each other emotionally and sexually – often all too soon. But it’s how you handle those feelings of intense emotion that will determine the healthiness of your relationship. No couple can maintain those early intense feelings and it’s how you handle the ‘come down’ that will show how you behave in a strong relationship.
DO recognize those initial feelings of excitement for what they are – don’t confuse them with the love that will come later.
