Cupid’s Advice:

Cupid is here with some top tips on how to know when you and your partner are ready to take the next big step in your relationship:

1. When you both know what you want: Make sure that before you take your relationship public or put any kind of labels on what you’re doing, sit down and talk about what you’re both ultimately looking for. Are you interested in a long-term commitment? Are you just looking for something casual? Do you want to get married? Will you ever want to? In casual dating these questions aren’t really a concern, but when it comes to a relationship getting serious, it’s vital to know where your partner stands on where you’re going as a couple, so sit down and talk it out before things go any further.

2. When your communication is going great: If you’re going to be in a serious relationship, it’s time to get real about communication. If you two struggle to hold a serious conversation in which you can actually share your thoughts and emotions with one another, it’s time to give some serious thought about whether you’re both ready to be in a serious relationship together. Any good couple has great communication or is working hard towards that goal, so if you always know you can go and talk to your partner, that’s a good sign that you’re in a good place to begin something more serious.

3. When your friends and family love them: Approval from friends and family doesn’t have to mean everything, and let’s be honest, sometimes people just don’t get along no matter how awesome they are when they’re separated. However, it’s also really amazing when your friends and family can see the great person you’re with as… well, great. Especially if you come from a close-knit family or friend group it can be really important for you to feel like your significant other is accepted. And if every single one of the people you love is telling you that your partner doesn’t seem right for you, it may be time to think about why they all seem to be saying the same thing. Relationships where it seems to be you and them against the rest of the world never end very well.
