You’re dating and you’re having the best time of your life. A surprise visit, a fancy night at a restaurant, or a talk over wine and candles – they all seem sweet, but what will you be ready when he’s ready to go serious with you?
Most people who are recovering from a relationship will probably have a hard time committing again. Don’t worry; we’ve arranged 5 signs that will tell you if you’re ready for a serious relationship.
You’re confident and happy being alone
Learning to be happy alone, free from insecurities, means being comfortable in your own skin. When you’re single, you’re giving yourself all the time you need, and that’s good. It gives you time to discover things about yourself you didn’t know and to appreciate yourself without having someone else to please. You love yourself – and you should. Always love yourself before loving others.
You’re selfless and not prideful
Never be selfish, because if you are – relationships just don’t work for you. Selfish people engage in relationships because they’re after their own happiness and sadly with time, it fades. When things don’t go very well, selfish people just disappear. Also, never be prideful – we bring others down if we are. Strip yourself of these bad traits before entering a relationship.
You’re done searching for it
It’s true when they say the person who’s most ready to love is someone who’s done pursuing relationships. People in constant pursuit of relationships usually set standards and can’t seem to find their match – this is a very bad practice. Being in a relationship doesn’t mean needing someone, it’s being with someone you unconditionally love and enjoy spending your time with.
You’ve recovered from a past relationship
No other sign gives more sense than having recovered from a past flame. Whether it was a bad relationship, or an okay one – you always have to give yourself time to heal. Never rush into a relationship if you haven’t moved on and this doesn’t need an explaining. Rebound relationships may stop the pain, but will only make the healing go at a slower pace. Give healing a time, because it is very rewarding once you’ve moved on and you’re not afraid anymore.
You’re smiling more now
You don’t let the bad and the good things of life bring you overboard. Having a stable mood is very crucial when entering relationships. If you’re smiling more than judging yourself – you know you’ve accepted yourself unconditionally. That in turn says you’re ready to accept and love someone unconditionally.
So have you noticed these signs yet? Yes? Then you’re ready! Oh, and one more thing – find what makes you happy and share it with him. Take responsibility for the decisions you make. In turn, this will help your relationship grow. Good luck!
