There isn’t a perfect answer to the question of how slow or fast a new relationship should move. Taking things slow with someone new might seem boring or unexciting, but it’s what most people do. Others dive in and are more than happy to get serious right away. If you like to move slowly and a close friend of yours doesn’t understand why, you might just be as baffled by how quickly they throw themselves into a new relationship.

When you meet someone who you really like, it makes sense that you would want to spend all your time with them. Many couples describe the experience of falling in love as very quick to happen – or as something they never expected would happen.

At the same time, there are always a few signs things are going too quickly.

Today, our Malibu matchmakers here at Los Angeles Singles Dating Service are going to show you the telltale warning signs your relationship is moving way too fast. If you want this relationship to last, you need to slow it down.

1. You have your kids’ names picked out already.

Couples tend to hit relationship milestone in order: you say that you’re in an exclusive relationship, you meet each other’s friends, you meet each other’s parents, and after a while, you talk about moving in together.

Saying that you two are totally going to have kids someday and picking out their names before you actually got to meet each other’s parents is a sign your relationship is moving too fast.

It’s normal to think about what it would be like to have children with your partner, but picking out the names this early on shows that your relationship is going too fast.

2. You’re ignoring everyone to spend time with your new partner.

Falling in love means wanting to see this person all the time. It’s just like the old saying goes: You can’t eat, you can’t sleep, and you can’t concentrate. All you can really think about is your new love interest.

While you’re giddy and ecstatic, your friends aren’t quite so happy. Your best friends want to go out with you on a Friday night, but all you want to do is spend every second of every day with your new love interest.

Eventually, you figure this out and balance everyone fairly, but at first, it can be a struggle. That’s why you know that things are moving too fast if by the first few weeks of dating them, you only see them and are ignoring everyone else.  You need to maintain other relationships in your life and spend time with the people that love you. You can’t spend all your free time with your new partner.

3. You have rearranged your whole life for them.

When one person basically rearranges their entire life for their new partner, it’s a sign that things are moving too fast.

You need to spend a little bit of time alone so you can do the things that make you happy. It’s okay to want to see a movie with your friends or go to yoga class on a Tuesday. It doesn’t mean that you aren’t in love and that the relationship isn’t going well. You just need to continue living your life the way you used to before you met them. You still need to make time for your partner and quality time together, but you can’t revolve your entire life around them.

So how many of these signs do you see in your current relationship? Are things moving too fast?
