    Things got intense quick… Did I mess up?

    So recently I started talking to someone who I have had a crush on for some time. We have been acquaintances for awhile. When we started talking we did the whole getting to know each other and even went out to lunch, but then the next time we were texting, things became more intimate.. mind you we have never even kissed, but pictures were exchanged. Did I ruin my chances at a date/ real relationship by letting things go this far too soon? (Also, he is 10 years older than me.)

    I wouldn’t worry about it since you both were doing the same thing.
    Discontinue the photo exchanges. If someone is truly interested in you they’ll make it known.

    You also shouldn’t allow yourself to become overly emotionally invested at this point.
    Keep your options open and go out with other people.
    You don’t want to be one of these sad people “waiting by the phone”.
    The world may not owe you anything but you owe yourself the world!
    Enjoy your life with or without this person.

    I agree with the above comment… if you’re seriously interested in each other than for now the picture exchange should discontinue.
    It is just not a great way to start off a relationship in my opinion. Be chill. Get to know each other, arrange to hangout again. If it works out, it works out. If it doesn’t… no biggie, life goes on. 🙂 As the person said above, don’t get too invested so quickly.

    I agree with the others, discontinue that line of communication and aim for a proper date/catch up. I don’t think its ruined your chances, perhaps you could tell him you feel embarrassed by it? I’m sure he’d understand your concerns.

    I agree, need to be careful of allowing yourself to get to emotionally invested
