14 Truths You'll Relate to If You Just Started Seeing Someone

The first few weeks of a brand new romance are simultaneously the most exciting and most nerve-racking of the entire relationship.

You're getting to know someone and slowly exposing your vulnerabilities, which can oftentimes feel like a good thing. But it can also feel like the most terrifying thing in the entire world, hence the odd combination of elation and fear that characterizes the beginning of any romance.

If you've found yourself caught in this uncomfortable position, you're not alone. Keep scrolling for 14 truths you'll relate to if you just started seeing someone.

1. First and foremost, you're all about your new person. They're all you can think about, talk about, dream about—basically they've taken over your life.

2. Unfortunately, that also means they've taken over your friends' lives, as you spend the majority of your time chatting about your new love interest and letting everyone know all the ways they're amazing and all the things that could potentially be problematic in your relationship.

3. Which, fortunately and unfortunately, gives your friends a chance to develop their own opinions. Some friends are totally supportive of your new romance, and others are already whining about how your new relationship is affecting your friendships. 

4. But, whether your pals are on board or not, they all hit a point where they're clearly annoyed with how much you talk about this person. They might not come out and say it, but rolling their eyes every time you bring up their name is a pretty clear indication that they're dying to talking about anything else.

5. But your friends' opinions aren't going to stop you. You're all heart eyes over your person, and you want to do everything you can to make it work.

6. In fact, both of you are pretty caught up in each other. You spend all your free time together, and it's totally normal to stay in constant contact when you can't hang out.

7. Still, you're not without your reservations. You find that you're constantly on the lookout for any kind of mistake, as you don't want to get involved in a romance that's destined to fail.

8. You tend to overthink the little things, often worrying about small imperfections that could potentially mean the death of your romance.

9. Even though you're worried, however, you usually talk yourself out of your misgivings. If you feel this strongly about someone, that's worth giving it a shot, right?

10. Unfortunately, it's not as easy to talk yourself out of your own worries. Your romance is still fairly unstable, so you find yourself constantly stressed about receiving a good morning text, or doubting whether they're as into you as you are into them.

11. That leads to quite a few upset phone calls to your girlfriends, and maybe even a text asking for reassurance from the person you're dating.

12. But you always get past those worrisome moments. Usually it just takes seeing them again or hearing their voice and you're back to gushing about all the positives of your new romance.

13. And there are just so many positives. Everything you do together feels fresh and exciting, even if it's just grabbing a bite to eat and talking late into the night.

14. You might not be 100% sure where it's going, but you do know that the many positives far outweigh the negatives, so you're totally willing to just go along for the ride.
