4 Signs That You’re Ready For A Serious Relationship

Relationship Advice | June 13, 2017

Signs You’re Ready For A Serious Relationship

Perhaps you have been casually dating for some time. Maybe you’ve resisted ever committing to the people you have dated in the past, or you’ve recently gotten out of a long-term relationship. Whatever your particular situation, here are four signs that you are ready for a serious relationship.

Are You Ready For A Serious Relationship?

  1. You’re Tired of Dating

    Do you find yourself tired of going on dates? Are you tired of the game, of the chase? Do you find yourself slowing down and going on less dates than you used to? Are you investing more time into the people you have dated in the recent past? These are signs that you are looking for something more meaningful in your life, and that thing is likely a serious relationship. Your days of trying to find gay singles may be behind you.

  2. You Are Emotionally Available

    Although you may be tired of dating and you may recognize that you want a serious relationship, certain things need to be place in order to be able to create a strong foundation for long-term love. In other words, you need to be emotionally available. First of all, you have to be content with yourself first—you have to be okay with being single. That doesn’t mean that love isn’t a priority (of course love should be a priority!) but it shouldn’t be a desperate yearning.

    Are you comfortable talking about your feelings and hopes for the future? If so, this is another sign you’re emotionally available. Next, examine the people you’ve dated in the recent past. Did you spend more time getting to know them than you once did? This is a sign that you are seriously considering how these people would fit into your life and also that you are emotionally available.

  3. You Have Moved Beyond Your Last Relationship

    If you have moved beyond your last relationship, that is, you have allowed yourself enough time to heal and you don’t find yourself thinking or talking about your ex-partner, this suggests that you may, in fact, be ready for a serious relationship.

  4. You Have Learned from Your Past Mistakes

    This one is connected to the emotional-availability theme. If you have seriously thought about the mistakes you’ve made in the past and what you would do differently in the future, you are setting yourself up for success, and you have the potential to make a relationship work long-term.
