What do you say when you’ve already reached the point where you want to be exclusive with the person you’re dating? How do you tell this person that you want a serious relationship? Most of us don’t know how to approach this situation because we don’t know what to say.
Tips On How To Have The Talk About Labeling A Serious Relationship
We all dread this talk because, on one hand, we do want to officially be boyfriend-girlfriend. But, on the other hand, we don’t want to ruin everything good that’s been happening by approaching the situation with awkwardness. What do you do? Consider the tips below:
It All Starts With Your Dating Profile
Most experts would agree that the best way to weed out people who will waste your time is to start with your dating profile. On it, you need to clearly state that you’re looking for a serious relationship. It’s a small thing you can do, but experts say that it works for about 90% of the time.
You are going to make the situation worse if you assume that you’re already in a relationship. It’s self-explanatory. At this point, you’re still wondering about how to talk to the person you’re dating about being official. Don’t get ahead of yourself.
Do A Series Of Talks
Most of us think that going into a serious relationship requires just one talk. It doesn’t have to be just one. It can be a series of short talks. Think of it as dropping hints.
There’s No Right Time
If you’re wondering when the right time is, you don’t have to. You’ll just feel it. If the urge to ask the question or do the talk is there, it’s probably time to do so.
When you do talk about being in a serious relationship, you have to prepare yourself. You might not like what the other person answers. He or she might not be ready but that doesn’t mean that they don’t like you. That, also, doesn’t mean that you have to end things right away.
Give the other person enough time to process what you’ve talked about and then, hope for the best. For more dating tips, read our blog.
