Cupid’s Advice:

A maturing partner is a good sign that your serious relationship is heading down the right path. Here are some telling signs that your partner is maturing:

1. Pleading guilty: It takes a bigger person to admit that he or she has made a mistake without trying to cover it up. If your partner does this, then that’s a good sign.

2. Open communication: A good sign of a healthy partnership is how well you two can talk – whether it’s about the weather, what you ate for lunch or personal issues. If it seems that no topic is off-limits, your partner is certainly maturing.

3. Family reunions: If your lover wants to show you off in front of his or her family, then there’s a good possibility he or she is serious about you and the relationship, or at the minimum, they see a future.
