While dating is a fun way to figure out whether the two of you are meant for each other, there are signs that show that your relationship is getting serious.
So you have gone out a couple of times, shared your awkward first-time kisses and scooped the surface of your past with your partner, spent hours talking over the phone and months later you are still together and enjoying each other’s company. Starting a relationship on this high note is an incredible experience and maintaining it takes someone who has as much interest in being with you as much as you might want to be with them. So how do you tell that your relationship is getting serious? The following are some of the signs;
You open up about the details of your past as well as your future: It takes trust to let someone into your world. Not even some of your friends might know what you have been through or your plans for the future. But if both of you feel free to open up about such things than you can tick the first box.
You know each other’s friends and some of your family members: The first sign I saw that my ex didn’t see a future with me was when he didn’t introduce me to his mother or brothers, even when he had the chance to. If you haven’t met his friends and family members it’s a red flag.
You feel free to be yourself: If you have gone past the stage of always trying to impress your partner and they still love the make-up and perfume-smelling- free version of you then it’s a good sign. It’s important to be with someone who loves you for who you are and not what they would like you to be.
You really care for each other: It is a good sign if you really care about how both your day was, celebrate each other’s successes and support each other through the challenges that you face.
You got over your first big fight and still stayed: You don’t really know a person until you have seen all sides to them, especially when they are angry. Knowing a person’s true colours and how they handle their emotions is very important, especially if you see a future with them. Remember no one has any right to belittle or lay their hands on you, no matter how angry they are. That, my dear friend, would be the beginning of a disastrous future if you choose to stay.
If you have ticked some or all of the boxes above then the foundation of your relationship is strong enough to build a solid future.
