It is very possible that you are falling into a relationship. In fact, simply wondering about whether you are falling into a relationship is often an indication that you are.
Some people fall into a relationship without even realizing it and can be taken by surprise.
You have camaraderie with someone else and develop a platonic relationship.
You start hanging out together.
They become the go-to person.
In other words, if your friend suddenly couldn’t make it to a social event and you need someone else to replace them at short notice, guess who you are asking?
You start having lunches together.
It’s just friendship.
Oh so it seems.
However, one day you start asking yourself whether you are falling into a relationship.
You seem to miss them when they are unavailable to hang out.
You realize that you think of them more and more during the day.
You realize that when you think about this “friend,” they put a smile on your face.
Now, you wonder, what is this?
Am I falling into a relationship?
Yes, you are. You are doing so at a subconscious level.
You may not realize what you are doing.
Indeed, this may take you by surprise.
However, whenever you find yourself eschewing time with your girls or your boys because you would much rather hang out with your “friend,” you have now crossed over into a romantic space.
This is no longer about friendship.
This is about much more.
When you receive a message from them, how do you feel?
Do you get excited?
Can you not wait to open up that text and find out what they have to say?
Does your heart begin to beat ever so fast?
Do you feel yourself trembling just a little bit out of nerves but also out of excitement?
There is a moment when you have crossed over from the platonic to the romantic.
That moment occurred when you were no longer pleased with finishing your day without hearing your “friend’s” voice at the other end of the phone or getting some kind of contact from them.
You are indeed falling into a relationship and you have probably been in it for while.
Recognize these moments so that you are aware of where you are at mentally in this current interaction with this person.
In order not to get too far ahead of yourself, it helps to not allow your emotions to overtake what the other person is feeling by miles.
If you get too far ahead in your emotions, the other person may never catch up.
