Don't Be Ashamed Of Being The Girl That Falls Too Quickly

Don't Be Ashamed Of Being The Girl That Falls Too Quickly

Falling in love quickly is not a curse, but rather, a gift.

I get what it means to "fall too quick." I have had several relationships that I have written about multiple times, but not until recently have I really embraced my role as a habitual monogamist.

Now, I realize when I say this that ist' not the best thing to be. Being the person that's constantly in a relationship can create feelings of codependence or insecurity. For me though, I think it is a good thing.

I have come to terms with the fact that I tend to be the girl always with a boyfriend. I'm a lover, not a fighter. I enjoy relationships, dating and making things work long-term with someone.

So when I say I fall too quick or I fall too hard, it doesn't mean I "love," them, I just love my time with them.

I love investing time and energy into something I really want. Knowing I have someone to come home to every day, someone I can learn new stuff from or someone just to vent to is an alluring circumstance to me.

To the people who fall too quick, it is OK and you cannot let anyone tell you otherwise.

We wear our hearts on our sleeves. We typically like sharing feelings and intimate moments with others and love with a ferocity like no other.

We are the people who remain loyal in the face of adversities and we give our trust to those that we believe cherish our time. When relationships don't work out, we may mope for months on end, but we come back stronger and kinder than before because we know what it's like to have our hearts broken.

Relationships are fun, always exciting and bring joy to our lives. On the flipside, ending these relationships is just as crazy in terms of emotions.

As someone who falls too fast, investing themselves in a relationship as quickly as it starts, I understand the intensity of a break up like no other. In the beginning, there is the honeymoon phase where the person you are seeing can do no wrong. You want to hang out with them constantly and tell them about every minute of your day.

You may go on dates and meet their friend group. You will spend so much time together, having inside jokes and even doing chores and errands. You may even make it official by this time, maybe going as far as talking about the future or meeting their family.

You will begin to feel so important and so essential to their lives. Until one moment, you're not.

A moment may occur where you realize that your feelings aren't being reciprocated. Or there may be a time that your relationship ends.

You can be the most realistic lover in the world and yet, every ending or revelation still feels worse than the last. This is the hardest part about falling too quick for somebody.

You see, being a person who falls too quickly for someone is tough. You constantly think of why things ended or weren't what you envisioned. The reason is that we love, love.

As young people, we envision this idealistic type of love and we deserve it. No matter how much we deserve it, sometimes it is just not meant to be. We need to remind ourselves that that is OK.

It is OK to feel all the feels when relationships end, it is OK to move too fast as long as we feel like the pace is right and it is OK to move on from relationship to relationship as long as you are ready.

Someday you will find the person you are meant to be with. Someday you will find someone who wants to move along at the same pace as you. Someday you will find someone who reciprocates the same energy and love you put out.

Pride yourself on how fast you fall. You are the most ferocious lover and greatest friend.

Falling is not a curse, but rather, a gift.

Once you receive the same gift you give, you will realize how it is all worth it.

11 Things The Man You Love Should Do For You, No Questions Asked

Sometimes it's just the simple things in life that mean a lot.

Every girl feels special when the guy she's dating does simple things for her that not everyone thinks about. Here's a list of 10 things that every girl genuinely appreciates.

1. Open/Hold the door

I feel like this one is really simple because everyone has to walk through doors. Chivalry isn't dead, let him open the door for you. He's not trying to prove that you can't do it for yourself, but he's trying to be polite and show you that he cares for you.

2. Give you really big hugs

Everyone has bad days, and sometimes you just need a really big hug. Whether it be a bear hug or the hug where he picks you up and spins you around, it will make you feel better in the long run.

3. Buy you really small gifts

One of the best things my boyfriend has ever done for me is simply bringing me a Dr. Pepper when he knows I'm tired from a long hard day full of exams or work. Sonic slushes will also make my day in a heartbeat.

4. Text/Call you just to tell you he loves you

This is pretty simple. It takes less than 10 seconds to text, and only a few minutes to call. Sometimes you get these texts right at the perfect moment, and it makes you feel so much better.

5. Come see you when you're sick

Everyone hates being sick. But seeing your friends and family while you're sick can make you feel so much better. Having your boyfriend come to see you and possibly even take care of you just makes being sick that much easier.

6. Respect your decisions

You're not married yet, so your decisions are up to you! He should respect the decisions you make and support you, even if it's not what he thinks is the best decision. After all, you know yourself better than anyone else!

7. Give you a shoulder to cry on

We all have bad days, and sometimes you just can't stop the tears from coming. Even if he's not good with crying, he should give you hugs and love to help you get through it.

8. Compliment you

Even if you look horrible and know so, hopefully, he'll still tell you that you look good. Even if the clothes you're wearing aren't his style, he should still tell you that they look good on you and that you are beautiful each and every day.

9. Call you when you're away or he's away

If you're like me, I miss my boyfriend after being away for about three hours, so when we're apart for more than a couple days, I love getting random calls from him when he knows I'm not busy. It's definitely better than a text.

10. Deal with all your annoying quirks

So if you're anything like me, you enjoy screaming music as loudly and horribly as you can in the car and making a complete fool of yourself, but he should love you for that anyway. I also love to take really stupid pictures, and he should put up with that too. He shouldn't be annoyed by your quirks, he should love them and laugh along with you.

11. Love you no matter what

I honestly feel like this goes without saying, but I put it on here so that the girls who don't feel like they're being loved no matter what can realize. He should want to work out problems with you instead of calling it quits and holding a grudge. He should want you to be happy and support you in every decision you make in life. When he loves you unconditionally, he will do all of the above things and more.

If You View Being In A Relationship As 'Losing Your Freedom,' You’re In The Wrong Relationship

Someone had to say it.

3169

Relationships are about being the best possible version of yourself separate and together. They're about growing with and doing life alongside your partner. They're fun, loving, and granted, they can sometimes be challenging.

Some challenges that frequently come up in relationships are disagreements (which are for sure gonna happen, because you're two individual people!), dealing with stress, and depending on where you're at in life, it could also be financial struggles. Of course, all relationships are going to have problems and everything won't always be “rainbows and butterflies" as Maroon 5 like to put it.

That being said though, one challenge that shouldn't ever be an issue in a relationship is the loss of freedom. Where did this idea come from?

I see it all the time, people talking about not wanting to get into a relationship because they don't want to "lose their freedom".

If you are in a relationship which causes you to lose your freedom, you are 100% in the wrong relationship.

Being in a relationship is not synonymous with not being able to be yourself or be able to do what you want. In a good relationship, you will be able to still have your alone time, be your own person, hang out with your friends, the list goes on and on. All of these things are so important. Relationships should never consume your life, they should complement it.

Why is this even a conversation we need to be having? Seriously.

Now obviously if you're referring to losing the option of getting with other people or dating around, then yes, you're right, you absolutely shouldn't get into a relationship... but that doesn't mean relationships mean losing your freedom.

If you are in a relationship with someone you love and respect, getting with other people isn't even going to be on your radar. It truly is that simple.

The trend of hating on relationships, for this reason, has gotten so out of hand in recent years, especially on social media. It's so frustrating, though, because it could not be any more inaccurate.

You should absolutely still have freedom in relationships. You can have it. I for one absolutely have it and do not view my relationship as the loss of freedom, at all. If you don't, maybe evaluate that relationship and realize it's not the best one to be in.
