I think many failed romances are a result of bad timing. You can appear to be very compatible and show great potential, but if the timing is wrong, it all falls apart. We don’t always realize that it is the wrong time, though. I believe we get caught up in attraction and end up realizing it way too late that it’s the right person, wrong time.
This is especially true when someone is nursing a heartbreak, mourning the end of a long relationship or marriage. I think people need to just have fun and let dating be about the “palate cleansers” to clear the lingering bad taste you may have from the ex. Even when we feel ready, it’s not until things get hot and heavy with the rebound relationship that we can see how important timing is.
Have you ever met someone really great at a really bad time in your life? How did you handle it?
I think if we were more honest with people we date about where we are – emotionally, it could save a lot of heartache. When you let folks know what head space you are in – you would be surprised at how understanding some people can be. Many of us have been there and know that it takes time to be in the right place to start something new.
How do figure out if it is a bad time to start a serious relationship? How do you let the person you just met know that? Is it fair to ask them to wait until the timing is better for you?
