This short relationship quote is all about taking your relationship to the next level! Going from come over to come home obviously signals that you are living with your partner and whether that means the two of you are married or not, living together is a big step in any relationship. Still, taking your relationship to the next level is something that moves at a different pace for every couple. So, how do we know when we snag someone who’s worthwhile? Think about this: You’ve been on a few dates. You know you feel a spark with this person. So, now what? Is it time to upgrade your relationship to the next level? Is it time to stop searching the sea for a better fish? You need a signal or two that will give you the answer! Below are three different signals you can look for to know when it might be time to take your relationship to the next level. Keep in mind, these don’t necessarily mean the two of you need to be living together. However, they can signal that your relationship is heading in that direction!
You’ve talked about everything, but there’s still more to say – You’ve gone through all the normal conversation starters. In the past, you’ve run out of things to say at this point. You resort to vague comments about the weather and downing the rest of the wine. It’s better to feel tipsy than awkward. But with this person, you still have more to talk about. The conversation flows, no matter the medium. It’s natural.
You have inside jokes – Maybe you witnessed another couple having a really awkward fight about the bus schedule when you were on your second date. Or perhaps the waiter during your last dinner date mispronounced the word quesadilla multiple times. It’s all fodder for inside jokes. If you’re reminiscing after only knowing each other for a little while, you’re ready to step up your relationship.
You’ve dropped their name at work – When you start talking about the person to your co-workers, you’re thinking about something more than just a casual fling. If Karen in accounting knows your boo’s name, you’re thinking about asking for a plus-one to your next office party.
