When is dating serious
We may still keep our eyes open to other potential partners, but we will likely find it more difficult to find someone we feel is a better fit for us.
Therefore, commitment becomes an important part of the relationship.
Knowing where a relationship’s at and where it’s going is important.
The answer to these questions help us determine such things as how intimate we should be with our partner and what plans we should start making for our future together.
Because we’re interested in building a relationship, we begin to invest in the relationship more, including opening up a little more and sharing more about ourselves.
Obviously there are always exceptions to this rule – bad past relationships or life priorities outside of dating can always delay things – but the undeniable truth is that if someone wants to be with you, they won’t make excuses not to be.
OK, so you’ve navigated the world of online dating, read hundreds of profiles, sent countless messages, been on a handful of dates.
And then it happens, the most terrifying thing of all: you meet someone you actually really like, and that’s where the real difficulty begins.
The best-case scenario is that they’ll want to be with you; the worst is that they don’t and they’re still seeing other people.
Either way it’s a win, because if the latter is the case, you’re far better off knowing the truth and getting out of there…
There really shouldn’t be any need to rush into anything – however, it’s important to be realistic.
