You might find yourselves spending more time together, particularly if the relationship is getting serious.
Alternatively you may find you aren’t that compatible.
This model suits many people, but doesn’t fit all of us.
Some people have hobbies, interests or other commitments that are their priority. Still more may find that circumstances dictate they cannot be with their partner as much as they would like, perhaps due to having to be apart for work, study or caring for a relative.

If the situation were reversed, how might you feel if a boyfriend you’d known just a few weeks asked you to stop seeing your friends so much and to cut back on your work, studies and hobbies in order to spend more time with them?
At which point you may be relieved you didn’t rush in.
We are led to believe that a perfect or proper relationship involves long term commitment to someone who you put first, see a lot of and have at the centre of your life.
Noting why you feel as you do, reminding yourself there is currently nothing to worry about, and focusing on enjoying all your life are all ways to cope.
In the coming weeks or months you may find things just develop without either of you having to do anything much about it.
