Moving from dating into a relationship
That said, if you act natural, communicate your feelings, and respect your friend, you'll find that you might start one of the most meaningful relationships in your life. Your mom is limiting the behavior of dating which would put you and another person in a situation that she does not believe you are ready for. It is ok to feel something more than friendship for someone even if you do not date.
Hi Lori, Hope you can help me here as I really need it. Then, at the start of Uni I became friends with a group of four girls.

The next day, I was texting with another friend, and when she asked if I was dating, I responded, “Kind of! It doesn’t take long to know something feels different.” Was I nuts? As a result, I fell down a rabbit hole of Google searches: relationship too fast; how to tell if a relationship is moving too fast; red flags your relationship is moving too fast; am I moving too fast in my relationship? Even I saw the writing on the wall for that one; they moved so fast and so publicly that it felt like a breakup was inevitable. Nonetheless, I couldn’t shake how I felt about Nate — like something really, truly was different and special. We knew things were moving quickly but we were okay with it, because the bottom line was that we liked each other a lot and wanted to see where this could go.
I met someone who feels different and special…but it’s been like 10 days so I’m trying not to get ahead of myself with it.” Her reply? I’m 30 years old and have been dating in New York City for about eight years. On our third date, I left my phone on the table while I went to the bathroom, only to come back to it lighting up with notifications from dating apps.
I could list out Nate’s flaws, and I liked him anyway, which made me feel more comfortable with things.
And I continued to talk to him about everything — that I wanted to wait a little while before he met family, and that I still needed my alone time and independence.
