When you’re seeing someone new, what’s the cutoff point where you stop “dating” and you’re now in a “relationship”? A new survey found the average is about six weeks in. But don’t wait TOO long to bring it up . . .
40% of people said they waited too long to make the jump before, and the other person started dating someone else. But 42% also said they’ve tried to force it, and scared someone off. Here are the top ten signs you’re ready to call it a “relationship.”
- You confide in each other.
- You’ve stopped dating other people.
- You told your family about them.
- They’re all you think about.
- You’re constantly talking on the phone, or texting.
- You’ve started thinking about your future with them.
- You really do want to know how their day was. You’re not just pretending.
- You told your friends about them.
- Your friends have MET them.
- Commitment doesn’t scare you anymore.
The survey also found 50% of us have really rushed it, and said “I love you” to someone we were just dating.
