If you're anything like me, you probably can't contain your feelings in the first few months of the relationship. Your mind is running all over the place and you just can't think rationally.
Well, it's logical to lose your mind when you're dating someone new after a long time and it's very natural to experience these some of these things.

A few weeks ago this person was a complete stranger to you and now you're often meeting them for coffee. How can 2-3 dates turn into seamless nights spent thinking about how cute their smile is?
Is the mindless obsession about this person even worth it? Do they like me back or am I just losing my mind? Well, it's pretty obvious to start thinking about how they feel about you in the initial period of a relationship.
It's important to consider whether or not your date will get along with your close friends, especially when you're planning to be with this person for a long time.
If you're active on social media and are quite excited about uploading pictures with them, be sure that you don't scare them away. Uploading pictures too soon with 'love related' captions will make them run for the hills.
Eventually, your relationship will take a more stable turn and you will start feeling secure in your relationship rather than jittery every time you meet your significant other. It's a good sign because it indicates that your relationship is getting serious.
Everything takes time and your relationship also needs some time to grow. If you will rush into something, you will only watch it crumble before your very eyes. Make sure you wait for an adequate time and take care of your partner's comfort level before popping the 'L' word.
Another question that might pop in your mind is whether or not you should change your relationship status on your social media profiles. Although it is completely fine to let the world know that you're taken, but make sure you confirm with your partner before taking a rash decision.
There's no 'three dates' rule or instructions to follow when you want to think about sex in a relationship. Usually, it's a spontaneous decision but make sure both the partners are there emotionally.
It might be fine to get to know what happened in his previous relationships, but obsessing over his ex is a strict no-no. It may make you seem clingy and you might scare him off.
You may want to pack a few night clothes for this one, but until you guys are comfortable around each other, this step isn't such a big deal.
