Whatever the case may be, if your partner tells you that he or she’d like to take things slow, it’s important to understand the possible motivations and explanations behind this approach. Your partner is just getting out of a serious relationship.In many cases, people want to take things slow because they’re just getting out of a serious commitment, and the thought of immediately plunging back into an intense connection with someone new is a bit daunting.I have been separated now for almost 6 months, although I have been both emotionally and physically removed from my marriage for almost a decade. I sat across from a woman who turned my dormant heart and soul flowing again and I simply can’t explain in words the feeling – it was something I almost didn’t recognize having been so long.I was…am one of those guys who simply did not want to date. I had no idea she was divorced – she had no idea that I was getting a divorce. But we were never both “available” for either of us to act on our feelings. I guess in a way, we are going to take things slow but i really don’t want to mess things up.
Whether it’s sex or commitment or marriage, it seems like more and more people I come across online want things to basically go from 0 to 100 in a very short time.
Your partner has a definitive timetable regarding intimate acts.
Another incentive for your partner’s desire to take things slow may simply have to do with his or her comfort level and/or the importance that he or she places on certain physical acts.
For example, some people choose to be intimate right away, while others want to wait for an indefinite amount of time before moving their relationship to new levels.
And by taking things slow, your partner is able to build a physical as well as emotional connection with you at a relaxed pace that’s pressure free. Your partner is still figuring out his or her true wants and needs.
