I sometimes wonder if our relationship mishaps can be fixed by re-reading Aesops' Fables. The grass being greener and all that jazz. However, if we want to truly understand why we crave what we can't have, we need to figure out if it's because it's new and shiny, or, are we not confronting issues within our current relationship, OR are we really not happy and need to move on??? Talk amongst yourselves. :)
This is exactly why we shouldn't rush things. Don't give things up so easy. It's true you've got more chance of ending up in the friend zone by doing it the other way, but at least you cut out the heartaches by probably ending up with someone that actually loves you for you rather than loving you for what their eyes are telling them. Get to know someone WELL before you bang them. Straight talk.
