The whole point of going on dates is to develop something into a serious relationship. Just be careful you do not misunderstand where you are in your relationship. Some guys have a different opinion about what defines a relationship as being serious. For some, the three date mark is what you are looking for to determine your relationship is serious. Others view it as the time when you start leaving little things at each other’s homes because you will be back. This is a very important consideration, because it will determine the way you can act around her. Here are some things to consider when trying to evaluate if you have moved into a serious relationship.
Are You Seeing Other People?
If the two of you have already stopped seeing other people, you have moved into an exclusive relationship. It does not matter if you discuss this or it happens naturally. The moment you realize you are both exclusive, you have developed into a serious relationship. If you are not sure if she has stopped seeing other guys, you can simply ask her. She will not mind letting you know if she is or is not seeing other guys. Just do not be pushy about it. If she does not want to talk about it, she is seeing other guys and you have not progressed to that part of your relationship yet.
Is a Date on Weekends a Given?
If you have been on a few dates and while on the date, you are already starting to make plans for the next date, you are in a serious relationship. When you and your lady have started making the assumption you are going to go out on a date every weekend, you are not thinking about whether you want to see another person, because there is only one person on your mind. A real clear indicator of a serious relationship is when you are planning out your next date even while you are on a date.
Have You Met Her Friends?
When a woman is serious about a guy, they want to know what their friends think about him. The final test to see if you are worthy of being in a long term relationship with is to get approval from her friends. If her friends like you, they will make sure she is staying with you. If the friends do not like you, they will do everything they can to break you two apart. Either way, the simple fact you have been brought around to meet the friends indicates she is willing to think about you as a serious boyfriend. Make sure you take the meeting very seriously as she is definitely taking it seriously.
