Experts are convinced that couples who are just beginning to meet should reduce the amount of time they spend together.
In the early stages of the relationship, the ecstasy of meeting with someone new can make you want to spend as much time with him as possible. However, this may not be the best idea.
Psychiatrist Scott Carroll believes that the key to a happy beginning of a relationship is to see another person only twice a week.
“It is important to stick to the regime of only two meetings a week, so that you have enough time free from your new pair to give your deepest feelings time to get out of your subconscious,” he said.
“These deep feelings are important, because they will help you see any controversial points or problems with the new object of the relationship,” Carroll added.
Psychologist Seth Meyers also believes that too frequent meetings with a new partner can negatively affect your relationship in the long term.
“Being a psychologist who works with clients in matters of relationships, I can share information that one of the factors that destroys many relationships from the very beginning is the tendency to do everything quickley,” he wrote in one of his articles.
“While some couples may find that they can spend each evening together and get along wonderfully, this is not the formula that will lead to long-term success in most relationships,” Meyers said.
The doctor explains that the desire to see a new partner all the time strengthens the desire for physical and sexual intimacy, which can put you at risk of too strong emotions.
“The problem is that too frequent meetings at the very beginning create the illusion of closeness and dependence, although every person knows that in order to really get to know someone, it takes months or even years,” he said.
