When it comes to dating a new guy, many women make the mistake of getting so caught up in the excitement and novelty of it all that they lose themselves in the relationship. That is the absolute last thing you want to do. This is true for a variety of reasons, but one of the most important is that losing oneself depletes your inner core.
You notice that this new guy is taking up all of your time at first. There is never enough time to do something you enjoy. But that doesn't matter because you enjoy spending so much time with him. You've crossed a boundary, and everything is now "our" this and "we" that, with no "I" or "me" moments in between.
There are some things that will keep you from losing yourself in this connection while also allowing you to enjoy your new relationship. The first of these is to maintain your existing and previous friendships. While they may appreciate your desire to dedicate a significant amount of time to fostering this new relationship, if you continue to ignore them, they will eventually write you off. You don't want that to happen to you.
Don't stop participating in customs. If you've been having a weekly Girl's Night Out, there's no need to stop just because you've found a new love interest. Keep in mind that your buddies are really valuable. They've been there before and will be there after this new man.
Maintain your interests. It makes no difference whether or not the new guy likes them. Your pastimes are solely for your enjoyment. He probably like stuff that you aren't interested in. Avoid the broken heart. That is something that distinguishes you and allows you to remain true to yourself.
When your new love interest wants to spend some time with his friends, kiss him and send him out for an evening of fun with his pals. Don't whine about him wanting some "me" time. Instead, use that time to relax and enjoy some "me" time. It will be really beneficial to both of you. How can you possibly miss each other if you never see each other?
You must meet his pals, which is quite vital. They'll tell you all you need to know about this man that he won't. All of his dirty little secrets and nasty habits will be revealed to you. The more time you spend with them, the hotter they will believe you are, reminding you of how attractive you are.
Last but not least, resist the impulse to add him as a Facebook friend or follow him on Twitter. You don't need all of those hourly notifications. It's sometimes preferable to remain in the dark regarding certain aspects of your relationship. It might take away some of the mystery surrounding your connection.
Yes, you'll have to learn everything about his restroom habits eventually, but why do it before you have to? This is true in both directions.
