A relationship, Woody Allen once said, is like a shark. It has to constantly move forward or it dies.
That’s not to say a relationship is a race. The steady hum of biological clock ticking shouldn’t result in jumping in the relationship pool before the water’s warm. It’s true what they say: only fools rush in.
So how do you strike a balance between dead sharks and fools? How can a new relationship continue forward and avoid sinking?
