So, you plunge in and hopefully use protection, but is that enough?

Are you going to wind up getting hurt and broken hearted anyway? How do you follow your “heart” (hormones really) and still be smart?

There are a few things you should know first of all, that create that wonderful “crush” feeling that provokes such hope for a happily ever after.

No one wants to get hurt, rejected or feel like a fool so, how do you move forward openly and keep your heart from being broken?

It is normal and common for partners to be in different stages.

When this occurs, requires patience and understanding are necessary.

Pay attention to these things and start asking yourself, “if this never changes will I still want this person? And maybe you will find yourself in a real relationship that can last and grow instead of saying good-bye in anger or hurt at the end of another long-term, short lived one.

”As the 90 days comes to an end, you may find you can’t figure out why you were so attracted to this person anymore.

” Love takes time and knowledge and there will be plenty of time if this is it. Travel together, cook together, spend long weekends together but keep your own place and space. Notice when things start feeling more realistic and differences start rising.

Use the time to get to know each other, your friends, families, interests and activities (even maybe, your sexual rhythms ‘cause you know a long relationship can’t last if both parties aren’t willing to sexually please the other.)Don’t move in or make other long-term commitments.

For some people, it may take a couple of meetings to determine if they want to date a particular person.
