Has your first date gone well? And second and third. So, you like the person you’re with and you’ve maybe even met his or her friends and family so you can tell it’s getting serious… but the question’s still on your mind. Are you ready for a relationship? Read on to learn pHow to know if you are ready for a relationship
Serious relationships are a major commitment, and it’s worth putting some thought before you make the plunge. Read on for Unified Dating’s tips how to know if you’re ready for a relationship!
You Understand the Importance of Communication.
Good communication really is the foundation of any successful relationship. Especially if you’ve had issues with communication in the past, it’s important to learn how to communicate effectively. You can always learn from previous relationships!
Once you’ve figured out things like your communication style, how to express yourself clearly, and how to listen, and even how to argue, you’ll be a in a much better place to start a serious relationship.
You’re Ready to Compromise.
Being in a relationship, involves some amount of compromise. While it’s important to stick to your values, being with someone also involves being ready to meet them halfway. Or at least understand their point of view.
Compromising means valuing the other person’s opinion – perhaps you let them decide what’s for dinner or their least favourite chore so they don’t have to. Either way, being willing to compromise is an important sign to know you are ready for a relationship or not.
You’re Happy to Spend Time Alone
A reason to be in a relationship shouldn’t be to escape from loneliness. Yes, there’s a difference between being alone and being lonely. But if you are just looking to be a relationship because you feel alone, then you have most likely not got the right mindset.
You should enjoy your own company occasionally, be happy when single and don’t need others to feel fulfilled. When you know how to be alone and you’re okay with it, it’s much easier to answer the question ‘Am I ready for a relationship?’.
You don’t seek constant distraction. You’re not afraid to be alone — and in silence, even. You like spending time alone and don’t need the television to be on or the phone to be glued to your head! You can be with just yourself.
You’re over your last relationship.
The worst thing to do is to go into another relationship when you still have feelings for another person. May those feelings be negative like rage or positive such as love and devotion.
Make sure to look for signs of anger and resentment towards your ex and that you have forgiven not only your ex, but yourself. To be angry at yourself is a clear sign that you’re not ready to move forward.
If you cannot accept where you are and who you are right now, then it’s time to make a change!
I think deep down you will know if you are ready to dive into a new relationship, and if you are not you should think of how to overcome these steps to happiness. Get ready to open your heart.
