Slow movements are becoming more common in this fast-paced world, where technology is moving faster than our bodies and minds. In this age of speed dating, sexts and online speed-dating, where relationships are disposable, I believe in slow love.
Slow love is designed to nurture the human within us all, who can form healthy bonds. It gives people the space and time to find deeper connections with their partners. It is also much better than junk food sex. And, it’s more effective for undefined relationships that have blurred boundaries
Four Pillars of Slow Love
Delaying Onset Of Sexual Relationships
Slow love is marked by a delayed start to a sexual relationship. Moreover, research shows that the sooner you get together, the easier it is to end the relationship. Couples who have had sex within 30 day of each other have almost a 90% chance of ending their relationship within one year.
When couples allow each other to get to know one another before they suddenly start to experience delusional sex hormones, they form an emotional bond. It is this emotional bond that binds us together in love that lasts.
Self Awareness | Slow Love Pillar
Self awareness of one’s relationship needs and boundaries is the second tenant in slow love. If we don’t know our needs, we can’t expect the environment or other people to provide emotional nourishment.
Slow love practitioners will be able to learn compassionate and kind ways to say no premature sex, as well as how to set their own emotional boundaries. They are then encouraged to open up gradually as trust is established.
Reduction in the use of Technology | Slow Love Pillar
Slow love also includes a decrease in technology used to create and maintain relationships, and a preference for face-to-face time over phone calls. It is especially important to treat digital pornography as addictions. And these addictions make men less attracted towards real-life sex.
Respect Gender Biology
The majority of practitioners recognize that heterosexual men are different from women. Moreover, their sexual behavior should complement each other. This is very different from biological determinism. Slow relationship can support a variety of sexual orientations and behaviors for each gender.
It asks men and women to recognize that some people are bonded through sex. Some people bond through trust. Slow love forms both of these. It takes time to make good food. It takes even longer to build good relationships.
Is A Slow Relationship Better?
Couples who wait longer to have sex have greater relationship satisfaction. Besides, they have better communication in the future through December 2010 study.
How Do I Make Love Slower?
It’s always a good idea to take things slow. Once you are both ready to slow down, here’s how to keep it interesting:
- You can do new things together.
- Your new partner will love you if you share something that you love.
- These are your questions.
- Stay connected in creative ways
