Relationships progress at different rates. When a relationship is beginning, many people make an active effort to try to take things slowly. Who you choose to date can be the most important decision you make in your life. The wrong partner has the chance to sabotage not only your life, but your own sense of self. No matter where you meet someone, there are clear signs that you and your partner may be becoming serious.
What dictates the ‘seriousness’ of your relationship can be largely traced back to how you spend your week and how you view your partner. Are you with them more often than not? What kind of conversations are you comfortable having as a couple? You are not going to go in depth on career aspirations and lifestyle compatibilities on date one, but it may become a huge part of your future and something that gets discussed over time.
There is nothing wrong with realizing your relationship is now ‘serious,’ as you should hope that your relationship feels incredibly fulfilling. Your partner does not become your entire life, but they certainly are responsible for a large portion of your happiness on any given week. If you do realize that your relationship is serious, make sure you are asking yourself if it is a healthy relationship. It can be easy to stay with someone due to convenience, but that is not fair to either party. By asking yourself certain questions about your future, you should hopefully be learning more about your partner and how you both view your life together. Make sure you are properly prepared to put in the effort needed to make a healthy, serious relationship work.

If you are questioning if your relationship is ‘serious’ but also thinking about asking the question, then I do not exactly understand your reasoning. That being said, there is no bigger commitment (short of marriage) to one another than the act of getting engaged and the knowledge that you want to marry your partner. This is not a decision that should be taken lightly and should not come as a blindside to your partner. It is the calmness and sureness of asking if your partner wants to marry you that should be the most exciting part. You now get to spend your entire life with who you think is your best friend, does it honestly get any better than that?
