Most singles think they’re ready for a serious relationship. They don’t mind being in love once again and to be committed to one person. Not sure if you’re ready for a serious commitment? If you’ve got second thoughts about going serious, it’s best that you check your behaviour. Your mind may tell you that you’re ready, but your behaviour proves otherwise. Here are 5 ways that allow you to say that you’re indeed ready for commitment:
You have your own life
What does this mean? It means you don’t depend on others for your happiness. You are someone who is easy to love. You’re an interesting person who others find as someone who is challenging to date. When you have your own life, it’s easier for you to love someone back and that’s important in a serious relationship.
You’ve moved on from your past relationship
If you still think about your ex and why it didn’t work, casual dating is right for you. You can’t go into something serious if you are not yet emotionally available. It’s unfair for the new person. And in the long run, it will also be unfair for you. You’ll be wasting time and effort on someone you don’t really love.
If you’re confident, people will have a hard time resisting you. How can you be confident? Just love yourself. Invest in whatever will make you look better and will give you a better soul. Go shopping, change your hairdo, and go to the gym.
You’re done with bars and nightclubs
It is fine to go to bars and nightclubs, and you can even find a good and serious relationship there. It’s how you act when you’re in a club that says whether you’re ready for commitment or not. If you love to drink and you drink a lot, you’re not yet a candidate for anything serious.
You’ve learned from previous relationships that didn’t work
When you’re prepared to get into another serious relationship, you have already learned from previous relationships and you know what behaviors were detrimental to the relationship. Also, when you look back, you’re no longer bitter. You don’t feel any anger anymore. You just want to move on and be happy once again.
It’s not easy to get into another commitment when your latest one just failed. Rushing yourself may only end up in another breakup. There’s a time for everything. Let time take its course. You can always start with casual dating and eventually engage in something serious once you’re ready for it. You don’t want to be unfair to the new person you’ve found. And most importantly, you don’t want to cheat on yourself. You deserve true happiness and you can find that when you get into a serious commitment.
