The length of time you should know someone before getting into a romantic relationship with them is dependent on the nature of the relationship and how the both of you are getting along.
Don’t contemplate this with a timetable in mind, as this is so detrimental to the ultimate goal of what you want for the relationship.
Get to know each other at a natural pace.
Putting a deadline or a range of time on it is a mistake.
You get so involved in the length of time that you forget to focus on building rapport.
Focus on getting to know this person and assessing how things are going without pressure.
As you gain more knowledge about this person by learning their interests and dreams, you ascertain whether those mesh with your own.
Figure out what is or isn’t there.
Your true feelings show when they manifest on their own without you pushing it in one direction or another.
Forcing your feelings to unfold in whichever direction is a huge error.
It makes you feel the pressure of time that you have imposed on yourself because you are wondering when to get into a romantic relationship.
You force a feeling that is or isn’t there.
A romantic relationship unfolds naturally when your time with this person is natural and honest.
Your open-mindedness is what you need the most here, letting things happen naturally.
It is easy to cave under pressure, being told that you should do this or that by either yourself or friends and family.
Avoid letting this influence you, as this relationship develops and comes to its natural conclusion.
This is what you do to know someone, letting the process lead to something more, on the basis of whether that emotion is truly there.
Forcing this toward a romantic relationship prematurely leads to something that doesn’t last.
Eventually, you get out of that forced romantic relationship damaged emotionally, after desperately wanting it to work out so badly and failing to do so.
