Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Instagram, Snap Chat…(when does it end), it’s easy to follow each detail of your sometimes roller coaster life. Girl flirts with boy. Boy returns the favor. Girls spills her guts to said boy. Boy breaks up. Girl spills more – only this time it is pain. This scenario isn’t just girls; it could easily be reversed.
Because you now have access to each other non-stop, the “getting-to-know” period is now on steroids. A girl and guy can literally know everything there is to know about each other in just a matter of days. This lack of “becoming a couple” position you in a place of extreme vulnerability. Yesterday you’re strangers and now someone holds your deepest and darkest secrets.
When two people spend large amounts of unhurried time together, it builds relationship. But when they cram that unhurried time into too short a time period, they also build a false sense of safety. The new hotter-than-hot relationship turns cold incredibly fast as one of them discovers there are things they didn’t know; and don’t like. Similar to standing outside in a snowstorm without gloves, your heart is now completely exposed to whatever may ensue.
It is imperative you to guard your heart; it is your greatest asset.
