Good Monday morning bloggers. As I began to start my day, I got an intense urge to blog. The subject, though a little off topic from my typical fashion post, is one that I think many of us can relate to.
The hardest part of meeting someone new is getting to know them and understanding what will occur from this interaction. You meet someone, you guys talk for a few weeks and then that question comes to mind “So what are we doing?” Sometimes it’s hard to tell if a person is just being cordial and friendly, just looking to make new friends or if they are really interested in you and would like to take things a little further (a relationship perhaps). So when is the right time to ask this question? I’m sure anyone would want clarification to make sure that they aren’t getting the wrong impression and assuming there is more to the situation then it really is.
I’m always reading online articles and came across on recently on boundaries. Within that article there was a section that talked about a person’s feelings. In a nutshell it stated that we should never be afraid of our feelings ( letting someone know how we feel and what we expect). Most times we avoid asking these questions in fear of scaring the other person away. If asking someone a question about what their intentions are scares them, that may be your first indication to run….LOL. But seriously, even if they other person says they just want to be friends I think you owe each other an explanation on what it is you are both looking for. If you can avoid confusion by addressing a situation in the beginning, it will save you time in the end.
What are your thoughts on situations like these? If you’ve been in a similar situation how did you did with it? How did addressing your concerns help you ?
