Practice Makes Perfect Patience

In today’s online world of dating, things move fast. People are constantly online, connecting, talking, and interacting. It’s go go go all the time! So it makes sense that we have grown more and more impatient over the years when it comes to romance. We want it all and we want it right now. Why wouldn’t we when we live in a world where you can order toilet paper online and get it delivered to your home within hours?!

However, our advice to you when it comes to expecting a lot in a little amount of time is,

 Practice more patience.

When something between yourself and a connection doesn’t unfold as quickly as you’d like it to, try to step back and slow down. Sometimes, the greatest and deepest connections take time to develop. Just because someone isn’t calling, texting, or seeing you as frequently as you’d like, that doesn’t mean things won’t pick up. Give them the opportunity to before you grow impatient. After all, good things really do come to those who are patient.
