Lunchtime Poll: Rash Decisions

You know when you start seeing someone new and everything seems possible? And you start making plans for the future both with them and in your head because all of that oxytocin and dopamine is making you do rash things?

What’s the rashest thing you’ve ever done with a new dating person? Mine might be the time I asked my boyfriend of two weeks to go backpacking for 5 days.

When it came time to introduce my significant other to the ‘rents (about a month after we started dating and once we thought it was seriousish), instead of just a normal dinner or dessert evening thing, we traveled to my parent’s cabin in the Canadian Rockies and spent the august long weekend with them. It seemed like a good idea at the time, though he now describes it as one of the more stressful weekends of his life.

My boyfriend of 3 months and I are already discussing moving in together.  It’s long distance so it seems much more urgent.  Fortunately, we’re not actually doing it, we’re just discussing it.

What I can’t figure out is how much time needs to pass before it become a not-rash decision, because I am getting seriously impatient with all this travel and separation (though there is something annoyingly cheesily romantic about all the longing and missing and giddiness of being together again)
