Things progress fast. Feelings develop. The other side didn't catch up. Now, we're here in disarray. What do we do now? We hit a point in the relationship so quickly but only 2 weeks have gone by. Do we continue or do we decide what "this" is? It's a fucking mess. There's no clear right answer. Every answer seems like a dead end. We feel anger, sadness, and like we want to drive off a cliff. Our emotions aren't contained. We lose at every path we take. We think "it's only been X amount of time" so this can't be real. We need X months, X dates, or whatever bullshit we put into our heads that says "this is legit now". We make shit up because we are scared of getting hurt. Scared of hurting them. When in the end, all we do is hurt each other because of the invisible standards set in our heads. If we truly feel that we want to be together, we will. We will know we won't want to let this go despite not making it to X amount of dates or X amount of months. Because in the end it's about the feeling we get when we're together.
