But these positive feelings also come with a dilemma.
They can create a sense of urgency to push a budding relationship further, sooner, to “rush” the next step, in an attempt to solidify the positive energy that accompanies a new romance.
I need something super passionate to light that fire under my small, perky butt.
Expressions of love, even when they are part of cute gifts, send a message.
If Erica and her boyfriend have not yet reached the stage where they can honestly say “I love you” in conversation, to send this message through a gift would be deceiving.
If I find myself stuck in a pattern, things immediately just feel outdated and mundane.
I'm always looking for some genuine excitement and an opportunity to be surprised.
For someone in recovery, a new romantic relationship can seem like a gift from Heaven.
