Cupid’s Advice:

Getting serious with a partner is an important step in your relationship. Things are no longer casual and you’re more accountable to that person. Cupid has some tips:

1. You’re feeling it: Sometimes your feelings for another person are just so genuine that you have to act on them. There is no harm in becoming more serious if you are both feeling it. If you want to know them even better and have enjoyed spending time with them, it’s obvious you want to know them even more. You will know if you don’t truly like them, so moving forward isn’t a waste of time.

It makes the transition easier since you already know you’re compatible. Time to take a leap of faith!
