Jen Glantz is a fascinating woman.

On a whim one day she decided to create a “Craigslist ad” to see if anyone would be interested in hiring her as a bridesmaid.

She woke up to over 200 emails the next day from desperate brides looking for bridesmaids.

That little kernel of an idea soon turned into a full fledged business that she runs where she is literally a bridesmaid for women on their big day. Now, on first glance you may be sitting there wondering,

Umm… what the heck does this have to do with my ex?

Well, Jen Glantz has literally taken part in more weddings than anyone I have ever met so she is up close and personal to what it takes for a couple to get married. I thought it might be interesting to get her opinion on what she thinks makes a relationship work.

Her answer actually caught me off guard a little bit.

    Hi Chris and Amor,

    I am one of your success stories. I dated a guy for a few months. He started treating me bad. Ditching me etc. I confronted him he dumped me. I did NC, engaged in other activities, dated other guys and when I was starting to move on with a new guy he came back. He said he loved me (he never used the L word before) and he made a mistake because he wasn’t over his ex (of 2 years back) etc. So its just been 4 months since we are back together and I feel like he is really rushing things a little too fast. I mean officially meeting his parents etc was totally fine but now he found an apartment that he wants us to move in in a month. That would just make it 5 months in into the new relationship which is really way too early. His logic is that we already know each other really well for 1.5 years (of which we were apart for 8 months after we broke up) and he doesnt see the problem.

    I decided to sublet my apartment and give it a try but I really feel like this is way too fast. I have to say we already had 2 fights so far and both stemming from the fact that I don’t feel super confident to start getting this serious in the relationship. I have told him several times I am having issues trusting him with so much so fast all of a sudden and I feel like I am starting to annoy him with my trust issues. So I guess my question is is it ok to move faster the second time I try a relationship or is this all going to end in a ship wretch and I should just ask him straight up to slow the whole thing down?

    please let me know

      Hi Emma,

      the bottomline is you’re not comfortable. Folloe your gut but also, be calm. Be calm when you talk to him, when conveying that not moving doesn’t mean you dont love him. And also ask him, if you don’t move in, does that mean he would love you less?

    Hi Chris and Amor,
    My no contact is up in 4 days and I will be sending my first text ! Yay Can’t believe the day is finally almost here . I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I read the PRO book and found it very useful and will be following the texting guide. So according to the texting guide, day 2 you should not send any texts . So what happens if he texts me that day ? Do I respond ?! Thanks !
