2. Are you personally ready?: Although relationships take two people to function, it’s also of importance to figure out if you are personally in the right place to take the next step. If you’re not in a decent enough mental or emotional state, then it might be best to take some time to work on yourself before moving forward in the relationship.

3. How long have you been together?: Though the length of a relationship doesn’t always mean everything, it’s important to know that it’s always better when you two have been together for a decent amount of time. Relationships that stand the test of time are more likely to stay together longer, therefore it’ll be better to decide when to take the next step.
