Making Your Relationship Official: 7 Telltale Signs
Thinking of whether or not to take your romance to the next level? Here are nine signs that it’s time to have a serious chat about your relationship.
People in long-term partnerships crave the excitement that comes during the beginning of a relationship. Those opening bars are sassy, flirtatious, and wonderful… But they may also be difficult, unpleasant, and nerve-wracking at the same time! Particularly if you have no idea where you’re going.
The exhilarating period of dating where every date and text is new and exciting will lead to this mind-numbing and head-scratching predicament with your partner. Apart from wondering where things are going, everything else went smoothly.
What’s the point of inflicting this pain on yourself? Instead of wondering if it’s the right time to commit, we’ve created a list of indicators so you can avoid the guessing game. 9 signals that it’s time to make that baby official are on the table.
What’s the point of bringing it up?
When you and your partner decide to take your relationship to the next level by getting official, it’s both thrilling and terrifying. Even so, there’s a good explanation for it. If you are a man or a woman, you deserve to know where your relationship, or flirtationship, is headed.
You’re sleeping together.
No need to wait any longer if you and your lover have already done some dirty work. You can never start thinking about the future of your relationship too soon once you’ve already taken it to the next level in bed, no matter how much time has gone since you first slept together.
You don’t leave any other options open for yourself.
So you’re receiving additional offers. If you’re getting other enticing offers and your “yes/no/maybe-so” relationship is throwing you off a response, then you need to find out what’s going on. If you’re seeking a long-term relationship, don’t let your non-committal crush hold you back.
There are other possibilities that don’t necessitate romance. As an example, you might decline an offer from one of your best friends. You know you need to work on your “relationship” if you’re looking forward to a night out with your pals more than the time you could spend with your partner.
You two are actually sleeping together.
For some reason, sleeping over is considered a more significant relationship milestone than sexual intercourse in our society. C’est la vie, and you, my friend, may be in a relationship if you’re frequently spending the night at each other’s place.
Both of your circles and his circles believe that you two are together.
If his friends have previously met and liked you, it will speed up the dating process if you are already known as his girlfriend. There’s a better likelihood you’ll be with the guy if you’re hanging out with his pals. He might be more than happy to spill the beans on his true feelings for you if you’ve already made some good friends with his friends.
You’ve had the pleasure of meeting the parents of one another.
Some couples spend years pleading -or pleading- to meet the parents of the other partner. Changing your status on Facebook may be a good idea if you’ve recently gotten an introduction from a new acquaintance. Be aware that this includes more than just stumbling upon your parents at the coffee shop. A Christmas present from them is almost always a result of your having dinner at their house or becoming acquainted with them in some other way. This indicates that your man has talked so much about you that they decided to give you a gift. Pre-relationship dating is a great place to do this.
You’ve earned the title of “event date” in his book.
A kissing buddy is an excellent approach to getting to know someone better and getting closer to a long-term relationship. As a result, you’re his first choice for date night, as well as for neighborhood events, movie evenings, and any other occasion where he’s looking for a date.
You two are inseparable.
You open up to each other. He’s the first person you call when you’ve got a story to tell, and the same goes for him. You owe it to your love life and your friendship to give your risky romantic activity the stamp of approval it deserves if you honestly regard each other to be your best friends.
A chat about where things are heading can be uncomfortable to start. Even if it’s awkward, it’s nothing compared to the anxiety of not knowing your status in life! It should not be difficult to make a relationship official. If it’s a good fit for you, you won’t have to sift through the fine print.
