How to Pump the Brakes on A RelationshipIf you've already rounded the bases, nothing pumps the breaks like a hard stop at first.
#1: Move it backwards in the bedroom.
If you've already rounded the bases, nothing pumps the brakes like a hard stop at first.
Just shut up and French Kiss me.
#2: When sending a Valentine's Day Card, the personal inscription says it all.
Stick to the facts.
Your name is enough.
#3: Try tossing a little ice on her family ties.
HER: "So I was thinking we cut your hair short for my brother's wedding!"
YOU: "Wait..You have a brother?!?"
#4: If she tries to have the "define-the-relationship talk", get real meta on her.
HER: "So...how would you define "us"?
#5: Nothing says Valentine's Day Dinner like an all-you-can-eat buffet.
If she complains, ask her:
"Are you so rich that you can turn down unlimited food at a decent price?"
#6: Make it clear you're letting yourself go. Health is a great place to start.
"Babe, I'm starting to get a little concerned about this itch. How do I tell if it's nested or just passing through?"
#7: Send a half-eaten box of chocolates.
An entire box would look over eager.
Do her a favor and cut out half the calories for her.
#8: Take her star gazing.
Don't be afraid to overshare.
"Don't you ever wonder who you'll end up with?"
