When you are already romantically close with a person, you’ll feel the need to tell everyone that you are already in a romantic relationship. There’s nothing wrong with this, of course. But, have you ever discussed making it official with the person you’re with?
The Rule Of Thumb When It Comes To Making It Official
Making it official is usually tricky, especially if you have been together for a while but haven’t had “the talk” yet. There are some couples who ease into officially being in a relationship. However, it is not the case for everyone.
The Magic Number Is Two
When making it official, experts say that you have to be together for at least two months. You’ve spent time with each other and you’re comfortable enough to share some of your secrets. Also, two months is enough to establish a solid understanding of where the two of you are heading.
What If It Has Been More Than Two Months?
If your partner hasn’t had “the talk” with you yet after two months, initiate the conversation. But, before you do, there are a few things that you need to remember:
- It has to feel right. Don’t just have the talk when you don’t even feel ready.
- Your partner has to be in a good mood. You cannot have a productive chat or conversation if the other person is stressed or tired.
- You have to watch out for signs that tell you that your partner is as ready as you.
What I I’m Still Not Sure?
If you’re bad at reading the signs or if you are totally unsure about everything, the best thing to do is introduce him or her to your friends and family. See what his or her reaction to this is.
A good reaction would include your partner being happy that you are going to do this. When you see a positive response, then go ahead and have the talk.
However, if your partner responds negatively, then you have to reassess the relationship you’re in. Your partner may not be sure of his or her feelings. It’s also possible that your partner doesn’t see a future with you. No matter what the case is, it’s best to talk about the issue. For more tips on dating and relationships, read more from the blog.
