However, if you're just worried you're rushing things, the experts say not to worry about that — the sooner the better. As an avid dater, online and off, and as someone who used to work for Dating Coach Evan Marc Katz, helping clients write their profiles, I saw many common online dating mistakes.

How Long Should You Text Before Having A First Date? Experts Weigh In
One of the relationships was only a few weeks old, another was a few months old and involved a guy 15 years younger, and the third was complicated to keep things simple, it was about 6 months old but they had known each other for years.
