Cupid’s Advice:

Especially after recovering from a broken relationship, diving into another serious relationship can be tricky.  Here are a few ways to tell if you are ready for a serious commitment:

1. You are excited: Trust your gut.  If you’re genuinely excited about your new partner and feel that the two of you will be able to maintain a serious relationship, then go for it.  Your enthusiasm will help the relationship succeed.

2. Past relationships are behind you: If there are any leftover feelings or drama from any previous relationships, you may not be ready to jump into another serious relationship.  You need to be burden-free in order to give your new relationship a fair shot.

3. Your partner’s feelings: Even if you are more than ready for more commitment, your partner may not be.  Make sure that you’re both on the same page before you try to take the relationship further.
