The fact that your partner includes you when it comes to planning and decision making is proof that they really value your opinion.
Relationships can be really complex and complicated. This is most especially true when relationships are still new and fresh when they are at the earliest stages and no one is really certain about how serious (or casual) things are at the moment. It’s at this point wherein the people in the relationship will be too coy and shy around one another. They don’t necessarily want to pressure the other into solidifying anything because they don’t want to risk coming off as too aggressive or too forward. And as a result, the relationship gets stuck in a really awkward place of idleness. This isn’t always going to be the case for some couples. There are just some couples with very forward personalities; those who aren’t afraid to just jump right into things and have difficult conversations. These are the couples who have free and open lines of communication even at an early stage of the relationship. But there are just so many couples who will be too shy and they will try to act casual instead of actually talking about how they really feel about one another.
But that’s okay. That kind of behavior is perfectly normal. In fact, it’s more common than you would think. Fortunately, you don’t have to keep yourself in the dark with all of this ambiguity. There is a way for you to figure out how your partner is feeling and where you stand in the relationship without necessarily having to make any grand admissions to one another. It’s all just a matter of being able to read between the lines. You have to be so keen so as to pick up the subtle signs that present themselves in how your partner treats you in the relationship. Now, granted, these signs do not replace the emotional weight of just coming right out and making a romantic admission, but they will be enough to give you a good idea of where your relationship is going and your place in the romance. Remember that it’s important for you to never force anything in the relationship You must always try your best to let things take their natural course. You can’t succumb to the pressure of trying to get to a certain phase in the relationship that neither of you are necessarily ready for. But if you are just a little too curious for your own good, then you can have your peace of mind by looking out for these signs. If your partner does a lot of the things that will be listed on here, then chances are that they are really serious about being in a relationship with you even if they haven’t admitted it yet. It shows that they are really ready to get steady with you and it’s only a matter of time before things become official.
1. You are always made to feel like you are included in the planning process.
The fact that your partner includes you when it comes to planning and decision making is proof that they really value your opinion. It’s also a sign that they don’t envision a future without having you in it. They would never ask you about your plans if they didn’t care.
2. Your partner has introduced you to close friends and family.
Your partner knows just how important it is for you to feel included. They want to expose you to the very intimate parts of their lives and that includes introducing you to their closest friends and family. They want to give you an in-depth glimpse into their world.
3. Your partner has deleted dating apps from their cellphones.
They aren’t interested in exploring the dating world via Tinder or whatnot anymore. They have you and they’re fairly certain that they only want you at this point.
4. Your partner starts opening up to you in ways that they never usually would to other people.
Part of growing more and more intimate with one another is when you make revelations to each other that are exclusive only to your relationship. This exclusivity is what builds a stronger emotional bond and attachment between two people.
5. You are always made to feel like you can rely on them.
They never flake out on you or give you a reason to doubt them. They never break promises to you because they really care about what you think of them. They would never want you to get a bad impression of how they feel about you.
6. You can have conversations about relationships without it being awkward.
Talking about relationships might have seemed awkward at first, but it’s not so awkward anymore. You don’t shy away from the topic as much as before because you both know deep down inside that you’re heading down that road as well.
7. You feel deep down in your heart that getting together is the most natural thing in the world.
And lastly, if your instincts tell you that things are good, then that’s probably because things really are good. Always learn to trust your gut especially in relationships.
