A new love interest can be tricky business if not maneuvered around carefully. There are butterflies in the tummy, excitement, a mix of oxytocin and adrenaline running through the body, and you are constantly on a beautiful high. But there are also anxieties and one is nervous, almost scared about things going wrong. Just as well; there are quite a lot of things that can go wrong when dealing with a crush or a when you are in the first few stages of a relationship.
But there are also things you can avoid saying to a new love interest to avoid an awkward situation. Here are few of those.
“I am ready to settle down”
You may be ready to settle down, but to a new love interest that sounds like you are planning your wedding in your head and this journey you two are on has a fixed ending in your head. No better way to freak someone out but by being hasty. Taking is slow is the order of the a new relationship.
“You can do this better”
If there is one thing that is going to send a person who is trying to open up back into their shell, it is being told by someone that something about them is not right or could be better. The fear of being judged is too hard and therefore people retreat. Criticism so early on does not do well for a budding relationship.
The “my ex-your ex” conversation
When it is time for you two to be discovering each other, to talk about ex partners is a little bit of a downer. Talking about your ex may seem like you are too eager to bring your past into your present and that might put off the new love interest. Talking about their love interest might be dangerous territory. So give it time, that conversation will come up when the time is right.
