What is a whirlwind romance? Many people have found their lifelong partners or a spouse from a whirlwind romance. This type of love blossoms quickly and moves fast. It’s a total infatuation that can start when two people’s eyes meet for the first time, and then there isn’t much thought of anyone else. Some call it love-at-first-sight. You might have heard of oxytocin, which is sometimes called the “love hormone.” Scientists have said that oxytocin and other hormones cause a human chemical reaction that results in romance. That’s the scientific explanation.
We all know couples who fell in love and had lasting lifelong relationships. On the other hand, some relationships were just quick chance meeting and may have led to marriage too soon. They discover their romance was their mutual feelings of desire and a physical reaction to each other, without a deeper emotional connection.
There is nothing wrong with the enjoyment and excitement of being showered with attention and love. It’s hard to keep a level head when a whirlwind romance happens, but you’ll remember it fondly, especially if it turns out to be a love that lasts a lifetime.
What Should You Do When the Romance Seems Right?
If the romance seems right to both of you, it’s important to focus on communication. You might agree with some opinions that say that the best approach to a new romance is to hold back on sharing your emotions with the other person. Other people start off by sharing everything they’d like to have in their lives or what they think they might be missing. It’s a great idea to find out more about each other person and what your relationship goals might be.
Do you both like kids or want to have kids? What are both of your ambitions and career choices? Try to discover both the positive and negative aspects of each other’s personalities to help build the relationship on a stronger footing. Are they only interested in you physically, or is there more to it? It not just about the fun. It about your real connection with each other as people.
What Problems Can Develop from a Whirlwind Romance?
Many relationships begin at different speeds and some couples take a long time to develop a romance. Some couples may have known each other a long time and taken their time to get to know each other over a few years. A whirlwind romance is more like an instant emotional attraction to each other.
We’ve all experienced or heard of dating problems such as: love bombing, benching, bread-crumbing, ghosting, zombieing, haunting, gas-lighting, the slow fade and other issues. It’s best to check in with the other person and find out what’s really going on. Are they keeping their dating profiles active online? Are they still dating or hooking up with past flames?

You might find that both of you have some common issues to work out. Learn about each other—as love is a work in progress.
Love is grand. May yours be, as well.
