You’ve been seeing someone for quite a while now but it is not official.
In fact, it is NEVER official, even if you know you’ve catch some feelings…
Your fear of commitment has kept you from fully enjoying the great benefits of being in a relationship.
Maybe so, but how to know when you’re ready to turn your fling into an actual monogamous relationship?
YOU DON’T CARE FOR RIGHT OR WRONG
You’re a diplomat when issues arise. Whenever you guys fight, you just want to tackle the issue and get back to the snuggles (or some R-rated +18 action) ASAP.
YOU DON’T LIKE CATS THAT MUCH ANYMORE
A lifetime surrounded by them is starting to seem crazier than spending it with your unofficial partner in crime.
YOU ENJOY EMBARRASSMENT
Trust that once in a while your loved one will say and do things (alcohol might be involved) that will make you cringe but that won’t make you stop loving them one ounce. (Yes, you’ve caught some feelings!)
Now what if you’re debating over moving in together with this totally awesome significant other.
How to know if you’re ready to take the next step?
YOU’RE A SHARER
Whether is your personal stuff, gossip, your toothbrush, the blankets…
YOU ACCEPT YOUR PARTNER IN ALL THEIR GLORY
Snores, farts, chewing with their mouth open, you live for all of that out of L-O-V-E!
YOU’RE A PLANNER AT HEART
Being in a relationship leads to tons of planning: weekend getaways, family parties, bills to pay and health appointments…
In reality, if there’s ONE obvious sign that you’re ready for a committed relationship or a romantic roommate is whether or not you want one.
So stop worrying and just ask yourself that one question:
Are you ready to be with ONE person in heart and mind?
Will seeing said person 24/7 not drive you insane?
If the answer is YES you’re on to one of the most awesome experiences in your life and if it’s a NO…
RUN FORREST, RUUUUUUUUUUUUUN!
