I think we should treat it seriously. Milennial dating really falls in to one of two categories these days: And while that's super fair, it can definitely scare the people they're dating into thinking they're noncommittal or straight up not into them. After a month or two of consistent dating, it would be nice to get some sort of green light as to what's happening in your relationship. He's not afraid to be seen with you and in fact, wants people to see that you guys are together.
Meeting friends and family is definitely a bigger step because you're entering into a part of their life that's special. If you get the green light from mom and dad? You're going to parties together, to bars or on double dates as this cool, cute team. If your partner is bringing you out to group dates or to hang with their friends, they most likely wanna see how you fit in with their group.
If they ask you on a double date: They change plans for you This doesn't mean that they're turning down a summer in Paris like Lauren Conrad. That was insane and also, Jason was an asshole. But re-arranging their schedule to fit you in is exactly the kind of thing someone does if they seriously wanna spend time with you.
It's one thing to hang out whenever you're free, but another to actually fit someone into your life because you want them to be there. Are you guys planning little trips months in advance? Talking about each other's birthdays or big holidays? Planning and compromising are two huge parts of commitment which mean that serious verbal commitment is soon to follow.
They put you on their social medias Are you in their stories? Maybe in a Facebook album somewhere? It's a definite sign that they want people to know that you're together. Ambiguous or hidden social media can seriously sketch people out as a sign that your partner isn't looking for real commitment.
We're not saying you demand selfies post-sex or anything like that, but see if they're open to putting pics of you on their platforms. They're talking about what post-grads they want to go to, or places they want to travel, or about their cousin's wedding next July. Because they see you in their future plans.
If your partner suddenly starts getting you things, it's a sign that they really do care about you albeit on a more shallow level. They wouldn't waste money on someone they don't care about. If you guys are in something comfortable, you should feel chill about seeing where things of going.
You need to get that ball rolling if you want closure, comfort and answers. If they want to lock things down and get more serious? You're not wasting a second more of your time. Proud book mom of "i'm in like with you:
