Raise your hands if you are in a relationship. Do you feel that you’ve found the right person? If yes, then congratulations. Now, if you’ve been in this relationship for a while, you might wish to take it to the next level at some point. However, before popping the question, you’d like to know if your partner is equally committed to this relationship or not. Quite understandable because getting into a committed relationship requires hard work and a certain amount of understanding and sacrifice along with lots of love. So, it’s important to know if your partner is really up to it or not. If you are searching for such answers in your relationship, then here are a few signs that you can look for to find out if your partner is committed to you:
1. Your Partner Focuses On Your Positives
No one’s perfect. We all know this fact. But often, we choose to focus and spar about the personality negatives which leads to the disintegration of many a relationship. If your partner is committed to you, he/she will try to focus on the positives in you and your relationship rather than bickering about what’s not working for both of you. In fact, they’ll always talk good things about you even in your absence.
2. They Always Talk About Their Relationship In The Plural
Part of a relationship commitment is visualizing each other together in the future. So, when you both talk about things such as taking a new house, building a career, or even traveling to a certain destination, your partner always mentions you in these plans as a team. It will always be ‘We’ and ‘Us’ for your partner instead of ‘I’ or ‘Me’.
3. They Take Care Of Your Needs
Each of us has different expectations from our relationship. Some of us seek financial support; some seek emotional security, while for some it might be physical satisfaction too. Since no two people are the same, so are their needs. Despite this, your partner makes sure that your needs are taken care of, even if it is something that he/she does not desire for himself/herself.
4. They Are Satisfied With The Relationship
One of the signs that you are in a committed relationship with your partner is the level of comfort and satisfaction that you both share. When you can be yourself in the presence of your partner and all your needs are met too, there’s no reason why anybody would choose to transgress from such a satisfying relationship.
5. They Feel Their Relationship Is Better Than Others
Comparisons are inevitable in our lives. But a healthy comparison can work wonders for a relationship. Your relationship might not be perfect or you might quarrel frequently, but your partner will always feel that you both are better than the rest.
6. They Are Not Distracted By Others
Most of us know that we can fall in love. But, did you know that people can even ‘fall out’ of love too? But before you panic, let us tell you that this usually happens with a couple who are not committed to each other. If your partner is committed to you, he/she will not get distracted by others no matter how beautiful or handsome the other person might be. Because, in the end, the soulful connection you both have goes way beyond physical attractions!
7. They Make Sacrifices And Adjustments
Of course, we all have certain plans and expectations from our partners and our relationship. Sometimes, the individual goals of a couple might clash with each other. And when this happens, you’ll both make necessary sacrifices or adjustments accordingly. Your partner will never do it for you until he/she is really committed to you. So, whenever you learn of such a sacrifice from your partner, know that he/she is for keeps!
So, does your partner exhibit some of the signs mentioned above or all of them? Don’t be disheartened if they don’t. It may simply be a matter of time before you’ll find all such signs of commitment in your partner. Or, maybe, they are already there and you just need to observe your partner a little more!
