Jumping the Gun! 6 Signs You're WAY Ahead of Him Emotionally

Try something this week. Get a group of your friends together (even if it’s just over the phone or online) and ask everyone to share their biggest relationship regrets. Maybe like a Top 5 list. We’d be shocked if it doesn’t come up that many of them regret moving too fast in a relationship. So fast that the guy was like “I’m out.”

It’s an honest (and common) mistake. It’s hard enough to meet someone that you really like and “click” with. And, if it’s been a while since that’s happened, sometimes you can’t help but to want to…speed things along to see if there really is a future or if your head is simply up in the clouds. Thing is, you don’t want to keep doing this only to continue having regrets.

The best way to avoid “jumping the gun” is to pay close attention to signs that you very well could be moving way of ahead of the man you’re digging. Here are some pretty clear indications of that.

1. You’re Using Titles. He Isn’t.

What are you calling him? Your boyfriend? That’s sweet. But before you get too comfortable with the title, pay attention to what he’s calling you. Is it “girlfriend” or is it his friend? Or is it nothing at all? 

We must admit that sometimes we can miss out on a potentially really good thing because we’re more into titles than we should be. But that doesn’t mean they aren't relevant or significant. If you’re calling him your man and he’s not reciprocating by calling you his woman, you’re setting yourself up for having expectations that he may be prepared to follow through on. A lot can be said for a title. Even more can be said for him not giving you one.
