Are You Ready To Commit? Commitment is a serious topic and should not be taken lightly. If you decide that you will commit yourself to something or to someone, you should be sure of that decision because it won’t be real commitment if you change your mind about it every now and then. So how will you know if you or someone you love is ready to commit?

 

When we talk about being in a committed relationship, it refers to having an interpersonal relationship with another that is based upon an agreement which involved being exclusive to one another, to love, to trust, to be honest, to be open to one another, and other agreed upon behaviors. Being part of a committed relationship is great since it gives you a sense of security that you have someone you can depend on every day.

 

 

 

Here are some easy ways to know if you are ready to commit:

 

1.) You are capable of putting someone else’s interest or well-being ahead of your own.

Most people know that compromise and sacrifice are part of a relationship. In fact, some people refuse to be a part of a relationship because they aren’t ready to compromise and sacrifice for another person. You could find yourself seriously considering to move to another city or country because of another person or it can be just as simple as eating at the restaurant that he or she prefers even if you really want to eat in another place. If you are willing and aren’t resentful to put the other person first, you may be ready for a much more serious commitment.

2.) You are accepting of who the other person is.

In a real committed relationship, you don’t wake up everyday with the goal to mold the person you are with into the person you want to be with. In a healthy relationship, both partners will motivate each other to be the best possible versions of themselves. It’s not the same as changing someone, okay. They would want to be better for themselves and for you. It has to be their decision. You accept them no matter who they are.

Both partners always have to be honest with one another, and to promote honesty in a relationship, it should have a non judging atmosphere.

 

3.) No other person is a factor, other than the person you are currently dating or seeing.

Until you feel like you aren’t thinking of someone else, wanting to be with someone else, then you may not be ready to commit yet. For a commitment to work perfectly, you should want to be with one person only and that’s the person you are seeing now. If you are on a date with him or her, and you are thinking about your ex then you might not be ready for a committed relationship. You will need to break it off with him or her because that’s unfair.

Get your feelings together before dragging someone else’s.

If you find that the only person that you think about or want to be around is the person you are currently seeing, then you may be ready for a commitment with him or her.

 

4.) When you start thinking about the future.

This is especially important for men, since women do this all the time, but men rarely do.If the thinking goes from “I” to “We”, then that can mean that he or she is already thinking about a future even if it’s just about planning next weekend’s activities.

 

5.) You have been introduced to important people in his or her life.

Men won’t introduce a girl to their family and close friends if he doesn’t see a future with her.

  1. You nailed it, Kendrick!

    I don’t want to get too preachy, but I believe our society has made light of what it really means to be committed to someone. That quote you shared is powerful in it’s simplicity.

    All the points you made were excellent, but the one on accepting your partner “as is” is an extremely important one. If you feel your partner has too many “issues” and you go in with a mindset that they need to be “fixed” the relationship is bound for failure.

    Thank you for sharing your wisdom, Kendrick.

    1. I agree with you Veronica. Commitment has been taken lightly and people feel like they do not have to be with one person when they see public figures doing this and that. So they follow the trend unknowingly.

      Accepting someone for who they are is extremely important. People only change for what they believe to be best for them. Show them you are the best at being you and they will change for the best. Like they say if it does not needs to be fixed, do not fix it.

      I really appreciate your feedback Veronica.
