You Read Too Much Into What The Other Person Says And Does With You
“Oh snap! He wants me to meet his sister, I’m in there!”
“He told me I could leave a toothbrush at his crib! Could we finally be on the right track???”
Okay, so these aren’t exactly the things you are saying, but many times, when we’re ready to move on to the next step, we read too much into what the other person says and does with us. These actions make us think we’re going to move out of the gray zone sooner than later, and they’re what keep us around. However, in reality, you’re not going to be out of the gray zone until you have that “talk” or the other party finally professes that they’re ready to go on to the next level with you.
