Dear Carol: Is it possible to take a relationship too slow?
My BF and I have been going out for a month, and we haven’t even held hands. I want to take it slow, but all my friends are already kissing their BFs. He and I talk a lot, but I don’t know if I should make the first move.
Dear Not Sure,
If you want to reach for his hand, go ahead. But since you’re not sure, why pressure yourself? It really is fine to relax instead of rush. And it’s smart not to let your friends set the pace for your romantic life. It’s also smart to take the time to get to know each other. Kisses mean more when you wait for them.
