Dear Helpline,

I really like this guy. We’ve known each other for two weeks. Do you think it is possible to love someone so quickly?

Dear Anonymous,

Based on the details of your letter, it is clear that you are still at a juvenile stage, as most adults, or mature individuals know better.

Meeting someone who sparks your interest, can cause an individual to feel like they have fallen in love or perhaps feel like they have met their equal, or better half. There is nothing wrong with that. In fact, it is normal. However, you should be cognizant that there is a vast difference between love and physical attraction.

Perhaps you often share laughs with that individual and often have good times with this person so you believe it is more than said attraction.

Love comes with time: getting to know an individual, their morals, personal beliefs, aspirations, the way that individual treats others, the way that individual treats you when the freshness of the relationship has long passed, their likes and dislikes, et cetera; love takes time. It is important that you take things slowly, be careful and use wisdom in everything you do.
