Elvis Presley, and later the ever-under-appreciated UB40, pointed out something incredibly important: "Wise man say, 'Only fools rush in.'" Just because the grammar wasn't necessarily sound, it doesn't dilute the message and its wisdom.

Falling in love is a wonderful thing, but falling in love too fast is a recipe for emotional (and at times financial, psychological and even physical) disaster.

Chances are you're way more invested than the other person, which can lead to a few potential outcomes, none of which are good: They take advantage of you for material gain or to buffer their own egos, or they're scared off and run for the hills, or they return the sentiment and end up creeping you out. You won't end up happy in any of those situations.

That's aside from the fact that "falling in love" too fast is actually rare. You're either falling in like, falling in lust, or are just falling in love with love, or with the idea of this particular individual, but not actually and truly falling in love with this person.

And that's neither fair nor healthy for either of you. Also, it's just really annoying to everyone who has to deal with you on a regular basis. Find out if you're one of the suckers who falls in love way too fast:

When a guy you just met doesn't call, it's not disappointing; it's devastating.
