When love is new, it leaves you saying “my bad” a lot to friends and family who feel left hanging. All of those hormones that leave you dangerously in love are great for your heart and your new relationship. But they’re terrible for everything else.
During those first few crazy months, we are not ourselves. We neglect our friends, don’t have time to call our family members like we said we would, and spend a good deal of time in the bedroom under the covers. Sometimes love even makes you get on your own nerves.
But most of us are guilty of getting a little lax, so there’s no need to feel too bad about it. Just politely ask your loved ones for a pass on these behaviors brought upon by a new relationship and promise to pay it forward the next time someone else loses their mind over a wonderful new love.
