Relationships are built on trust, compromise and sacrifice and without these attributes, they just do not work. People want security in a relationship alongside love. Relationships are a long term commitment and it takes more than just a couple of things to settle down.
If you feel secure around someone then you are willing to spend the rest of your life with them without any hesitation. However, that is not enough to be with someone for the rest of your life. It takes a lot more than that.
Here are some of the things that show that you are ready to settle down with someone.
1. No pressure
Exceeding expectations can be really destructive in a relationship and although everyone deserves all the love and respect in the world, we are only human and sometimes we are unable to fulfil all the wishes of our partners. If your partner is okay with the little things you do and doesn’t pressurise you to go overboard, then you will feel comfortable in your skin. You will feel more optimistic in their presence. This encourages you to settle down with them.
In the start of a relationship, we think twice about uttering a word because we don’t know our partner that well and we aren’t sure about the reaction we will get from them. However, as time passes by, we don’t really have to nod to their every sentence. You get so used to each other and you know that you can be honest if you don’t like an opinion or a joke. You still have to respect their opinionated and humorous nature and avoid banter at all times.
