You aren't picking a date... you're going on one.

It's just a date...

NO! You aren't PICKING a date... you're going on one.
Ok, so you have been out a bit, maybe smooched and casnoodled a little but HELLO it's just dating so if you're envisioning yourself in white... STOP. Sometimes we get a little carried away. We are rushed, or rush ourselves into knowing exactly what "we should BE". ew. No... totes not how dating works.

Just DATE them. Let it take it's course. Slow and steady, said the horse. nay.
(just said that cuz it rhymes... moving on).
So. If you catch yourself being a little eager beaver and feeling like you either need to break up with them because you aren't seeing marriage all bright and clear in the future*, or that you feel like you should know right away what the future holds, or that you feel like you want to marry them after 3 dates... welp. See this picture. It's a good thing. Don't let a good thing pass you by because you were too excited about the 'M' word.
My advice...Ever heard of those pills that make you chill? Well take one because if you don't scare the guy away you're certainly scaring someone else in the near vicinity.

Take it easy.
one date at a time.
It's just a date. You're getting to know each other...

Rules Girl

*however, if you know it's not going anywhere don't drag them along.

I'm so guilty of being a little eager beaver. This post is dead on; I just need to apply it better in my dating life. Thanks!

Good post. It's good to remember to give people a chance- while at the same time not dating someone who you KNOW it will never work out with. But it's worth it to date to get to know! Because I agree, you can't possibly know on the first date if you want to MARRY someone!
