5 Easy Ways To Prevent Coming Off Too Strong

Falling for someone is a feeling we all experience at some point.

A feeling worth a million words , but sometimes the actions speak so much louder. You feel yourself falling, but you catch yourself mid fall because you don't want to over compensate or come off too strong. You're diggin' the person and the vibes are there, but something seems a bit off -- so, you question falling back, but what good would that do you? You find yourself reaching out more than you need to, but in the back of your head all you can think about is the connection being there. But what if it's not? What if it's all in your head?
You begin to question everything and find yourself doing the very thing you said you wouldn't do. You're torn between falling back and coming off too strong. Neither option will put your heart at ease, but you choose anyway. You listen to your heart opposed to your mind, you're used to it. Your pride takes over and you refuse to look like you're head over heels. "It's too soon", you tell yourself. But the vibes were there, right? Where did they go?

"Hey, what's up?"
*No reply.*
Four hours later, you receive a text with one word.
You slowly drift away.
Did you come off too strong? Possibly.
Should you blame yourself for the outcome? No.
Shake it off. Smile. It happens.
Keep scrolling to see how you can prevent yourself from coming off too strong.

Sending One Text Too Many

If you have find yourself going above and beyond without getting much of anything in return, give it up. Take a few steps back and relax. Your phone will notify you when it's time to start drooling again.

Overthinking Every Possible Thing

"Did I say something wrong?" "Am I annoying?" "Was it my breath?" and the list goes on. More than likely, it has absolutely nothing to do with any of the things you're questioning. You're not the only one with a life, y'know?

Thinking About A Relationship Way Too Soon

You've gone on two dates -- and technically netflix and chill doesn't happen to count. If you're questioning where this is going after about a month or so, relax -- it's too early. If you pop the question [what are we?] before the time is right, you're buying yourself a one way ticket to "sorry, it's not going to work" land.

Planning Dates Back To Back

So, you just spent the entire weekend together and you hit him with a text hinting where you would like to go on your next date. That screams clingy. A bit of breathing room on aisle #4 please. If the person happens to be into you, you won't have to worry about hinting the next date -- there will be plenty.

Put Your Phone Down

Hovering over your phone will only make you more antsy. Try keeping yourself busy doing things that don't involve technology. It helps.
If any of these happened to sound like you, you might want to reevaluate how strong you're coming off.

If you see a future with this person, don't ruin the chances.

Children who grow up with pets become more sensitive and sympathetic adults!
Contact with animals gives children a greater sense of responsibility, enhances empathy and increases their understanding of the cycle of life. But Why? Several studies show how children who live with pets have a more developed emotional intelligence (EI), i.e. the ability of effectively understand, manage, and express one’s feelings and interpreting those of others. This is considered to be a key factor for a better quality of life. Unlike the intelligence quotient (IQ), which experts consider to be unalterable, the emotional intelligence can progress with time, through practice. Animals can help children do this. Here are the benefits our four-legged friends can have on our kids. 1. Empathy Children living with pets early learn to take care and feed another creature, initially by observing their parents, storing up all elements they will use in every future interaction with animals. Several studies demonstrate that children who own pets feel more empathy towards other people and animals. 2. Self-esteem Taking care of animals necessarily entails responsibilities, which give children a sense of personal fulfilment and help them feeling independent and competent. Nienke Endenburg and Ben Baarda, authors of the book The Waltham Book of Human–Animal Interaction, reports an experiment in which children with low self-esteem showed great progresses after they spent 9 months with a pet in their classroom. 3. Cognitive development Spending time with pets can ease the acquisition of language and improve oral competences in children. They don’t only play with animals, but also talk to them and often read stories in their presence. Moreover, “conversing” with animals helps children fighting stutter. 4. Stress reduction Animals offer a unique emotional support, and are able to weaken negative feelings. During a research children were asked to tell who they would talk to if they find themselves in a spot, and most of them mentioned their own pets. Effectively, we often feel unconditionally supported by them, whilst other people would judge and criticise certain situations. What do you think?
