If physical chemistry or attraction is important for you, make sure it’s there in the beginning. If your partner is dependable and consistent, in actions and words, consider this a green light.
It’s also important to have chemistry between you from the beginning.
So you’ve met someone who’s grown on you, and you’re thinking it might be time to make it official. If this wasn’t there at the start, it isn’t going to appear later.
Before you delete that online profile, here are a few things to ask yourself to make sure you’re diving in with the right partner. Is his personality aligned with what he shows you and the rest of the world? If you’re dating someone who struggles with being authentic with you, it can be a challenge to build a genuine partnership. If you’re not ready to let down your guard with each other, it might be a good idea to wait it out before you make that commitment to be exclusive. The key is whether you’re sexually compatible with your partner. If sex is important, you want the flame of desire to be present, or you may find yourself going through the motions of sex and resenting it later on. If you don’t have trust, it becomes impossible to grow into a committed relationship.
If you’re a highly sexual person and dating someone who is uncomfortable with sex, this could spell trouble in the long run.
Talk about it and find out if you’re on the same page.
My only advice is to try to enjoy the first few dates without thinking too much about what’s next.
I know you want a serious commitment and it’s great that you’re clear about your intentions, but that’s a big topic for date four.
Again, you didn’t do anything wrong, but I hope that during the first few weeks of any relationship, you’re allowing yourself to have fun, feel giddy, and ponder the next two weeks as opposed to the next two years. Meredith At work, I’m surrounded by young women who overthink every relationship because they just can’t wait for the one that’s gonna be the one.
Growing together in this vulnerable way will help your relationship flourish.
Few would disagree that healthy, clear communication is a key to a relationship that will last.
