I'm talking to this girl and I think I'm starting to feel something here. I have never tried dating (or pre-dating) before so that can be the reason that I'm falling quickly but I genuinely like her as a person, not just her looks. However, I would like my feelings to slow down because I don't want to hurt myself (mentally, not physically duh) if it doesn't work out in the end for any reason.
Any advice? Thanks!

You can't stop yourself from feeling the way you do about her, but you can control when and how you choose to share those feelings with her.
As well, make sure that you are maintaining your social relationships and other activities outside the relationship. If you spend all of your free time with her, she'll become "everything" to you and it will be much harder if it doesn't work out long term. But if you maintain your friendships and have a life outside your relationship with her, then regardless of how strongly you develop feelings for her, you won't be utterly devastated if it ends.1
