Most relationships adhere to a pretty standard time line. People meet, date, become exclusive, and gradually become more and more serious.
Some relationships, however, progress a little more quickly. Certain couples can go from casual to serious faster than you can say “promise ring.” Sometimes it’s because two people have so much in common; sometimes it’s because of incredible sex. Whatever the reason, some relationships get way too serious way too fast. If you find yourself in such a situation, you might start looking for ways to take it down a notch.
