Have you ever asked yourself the questions, “Is my partner serious about our relationship?” “How can I tell whether he or she sees me as a long-term partner?”
And even if you are often told that you are loved and appreciated would that count unless the actions of your partner prove that their words are right.
It even happens sometimes that your significant other might not come out and say it right away, but they would do a lot of the same things that prove they see you as a permanent part of their life.
To help you identify whether your loved person really sees you as a long-term partner or not below are listed 12 undeniable signs he’s, or she’s getting serious about you and might be the one for you.
1. You’re A Priority
If your partner is serious about you and wants to make you a significant part of their life, he or she’s going to treat you as a priority.
What does that mean?
It means that they crave to see you often, try to include you in their plans and consider your opinion when making important decisions.
Of course, that doesn’t mean they are going to put you first in every situation. It doesn’t mean that they should abandon everything else and dedicate all their time to you.
However, you are going to see and fee that you are essential for your significant other.
So if you can tell they are making an effort to make time for you, even when they’ve got a lot going on – that’s a perfect sign that the relationship is serious.
The key to any healthy, long-term relationship is respect. Respect grows out of mutual admiration and trust in each other. It develops when each partner sees things to admire in the other.
So, if your partner listens to what you have to say and shows you respect if they remember your words and appreciate your advice you are on the right track to building a strong, long-term relationship.
3. They Keep Their Promises
A partner who wants to be in a relationship with you should keep their promises. Their promises aren’t empty because they don’t want to disappoint you and will try to do everything in their power to keep their word. And if they disappoint you, he or she could feel upset and do everything to make it up to you.
4. They want to get to know you
A serious partner wouldn’t be that interested in the little details you mention and would rather listen to you talk about the essential things that matter – your childhood, your aims or your career. If you mentioned a big promotion at work, they should be interested to find out if you got it. They would care about what makes you sad and what makes you happy.
5. They make plans with you
They want to spend time with you and try to make sure that they inform you in advance and not at the last minute. They see you in their future and even try to plan it. They would like to think about you and your relationship in the longer perspective and not only what you are going to do at the weekend.
6. You share common interests.
You and your partner should have other interests besides going to the club every other day and dancing all night long. If you can indulge yourselves in different activities that make you both happy, improve your lifestyle and become better people together, then you are on your way to building a close long-term relationship.
7. Commitment and Marriage are not taboo words
Nowadays people are trying to get through school, get their careers off the ground before committing to their partner. Still, if the relationship is serious, your significant other could have told you that if they decide to commit, you might be the best partner for them. So, even though you might not be ready yet marriage and commitment are in the long-term plan.
8. They try to get along well with your close people
A partner who isn’t serious might try to avoid meeting your close ones – family or friends. The reason is they don’t view these people as important, and won’t make an effort to get to know them. However, someone who wants to be with you long term should make a serious effort getting to know the close people in your life.
9. Intimacy matters but it’s not the most important thing
No matter how much your partner desires to have physical intimacy with you, they should be fine with taking it slow. You shouldn’t feel an obligation to jump in bed with them after the first date. If your partner is serious, they should show they value your company first.
10. They don’t want to disappoint you.
A serious partner would never leave you waiting for them in the cold. If something makes them late, they should try to do their best to let you know and to make up for it. The same goes for your the plans and promises. Someone who loves you would try to keep their word and wouldn’t want to disappoint you ever.
11. They are always there for you
If you need something, they are the people who are always ready to help you. Your partner is genuinely interested in making you smile in any way they can. Your happiness matters to them (even more than their own) and they would do what it takes to make you feel satisfied.
12. They make you feel happy
You have fun together. You don’t feel like the conversation is difficult or forced. The communication with your partner is easy, and you get along together very well. And most importantly your partner makes you laugh and could lift your spirits whenever you feel down.
In case you’ve noticed most of or all of these signs, you do have a reason to be happy and proud because most probably you’ve found a serious, loving and committed partner which is great!
However, if you are still single or you are not satisfied with your relationship you shouldn’t lose hope – remember the right partner for you is somewhere out there, and you just need to find them.
