If you and your partner cheer each other on both in your careers and personal lives, you can be confident that commitment isn’t too far away.
So it can be good to have a heads-up that your current ‘more-than-friend-but-not-boy-/girlfriend’ may be in the market for an actual relationship.
The process of getting better at dating can be a difficult one. And of course, there’re a lot of people who buy into this.
There are a lot of self-limiting beliefs that can be hard to overcome – not the least of which being that you’re “stuck” at wherever you are and there’s nothing you can do. It’s a tempting narrative after all; when there’s no hope and no choice, you are relieved of all responsibility.
You know that you’re with the best person out there for you, and that’s all that matters!
The best way to know for sure if you’re ready to move forward in your relationship is to just ask yourself. Be truthful with yourself, and accept the answer no matter what it may be. One of the biggest signs that you’re ready to take your current relationship to the next level is if your exes simply don’t matter to you anymore.
