Are you confused about where your relationship is going? Don’t worry! It happens to the best of us. In fact, one moment you are on a date, mesmerized by her beautiful eyes, next moment you find yourself sitting across having the dreaded ‘talk’ which include words like ‘moving in and getting a pet together’ or hints about ‘the ring’. The progression of a romantic relationship is tricky. It needs to be handled with caution. If you still haven’t figured out where exactly you are in your relationship or unsure about where you are heading, Let us break it down for you. We have your back and will help you recognize some blaring signs.  If you nod yes to any of the below mentioned signs, chances are you already in a serious relationship, my friend. So let’s dive in.

Signs you are in a serious relationship

You have your stuff at each other’s place.

This is a textbook scenario in a serious relationship. You have been spending a lot of time together and are always having ‘sleepovers’ at each other place. You leave your stuff at each other’s place, for convenience, be it a toothbrush, a change of clothes. Soon you see that there are traces of each other all over the house, even on the rare occasions when you are not staying over. Be it a pants that she bought over one day or her bracelet on your bedside table; you know that your lives are becoming more intertwined each passing day.

You are now okay with actually hanging out on the couch and watching Netflix. It is okay if you are falling asleep without a sexathon. It might be because you are either too tired, had a bad day or just not feeling well. You enjoy each others company and sex may not even be on your mind. And It’s okay with you.

You survived a fight (or many)

When the relationship honeymoon wears off chance are you and your partner will butt heads sometimes. You might have different views on issues and some time cant see eye to eye. However, you should find a way to work things out and put your relationship above any argument you might have. In fact if you like each other enough, you will find a way to work true any situation without letting it tear you apart.

You take care of each other

Did you show up with chicken soup when she had a fever and drove to pick up her dad from airport? Do you know each other’s favorite food and she keeps those M&Ms and your favorite beer ready whenever you visit? Walking her dog is not at all irritating for you (on most days) You just might be getting serious. Taking care of each other shows that you are there for each other not only in happy times.

You made it official on the social media

If you are posting cute/soppy pictures on your Instagram account about your relationship, you might just be in a real one, and things are getting serious. However, it also means you’re confident enough about your relationship to put it on display for all to see.

You are exclusive: serious relationship

Both of you are not beating around the bush when it comes to seeing each other exclusively. You have put each other’s fears to rest and have let the other know where you stand. There is no talking behind each other’s back, and you really look forward to spending time with each other. Besides, there is no ‘plan B’ option that you have kept on hold.

You plan for the future

We are not taking marriage and kids, but if you are in each other’s future plans, chances are that you are serious about each other. If she is counting on you to show up at her office party, it means she’s planning a little ahead into the future, and things are getting a little serious.

No skeletons in the closet: serious relationship

You have transparency in your relationship and there are no unresolved issues or skeletons hidden in the closet. Your partner is not bothered by your ex relationships and is mature in dealing with it. Hiding things from each other or not addressing ‘difficult’ topics will only get you so far before you are forced to tackle them.

If you have been unsure about the seriousness of your relationship, we hope the above-mentioned signs help with a bit clarity in your relationship. In fact, there are different types of relationships and getting a little more serious is not something to feel threatened by. It means you have found someone who you care about, which is always a great thing. Ambiguity in a relationship is never healthy. However, a bit more transparency can help both you and your partner. It will also give you a better vision and determine where you go from here. Hopefully this guide helps to identify if you are in a serious relationship and where things are going.
