Don’t start with these dreaded words: “I need to talk.” Melamed recommends you keep it super casual by starting with, “I just love spending time with you,” or, “I feel so lucky that we have had this time to get to know each other.” This approach will help ease any unnecessary anxiety.

“The anxiety bells might not be going off because the person is a commitment-phobe,” says Melamed. “It’s just that … most people will engage with conversation over confrontation any day of the week.”
