7 Signs You Are RELATIONSHIP READY

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, and the arrival of spring not long after that, many Vancouver singles are asking themselves ‘Is now the right time to start a relationship?’ 

Here are 7 telltale signs of relationship readiness:

  1. Dating burnout: does dating begin to feel like ‘groundhog day’, repeating the same old stories about yourself over and over to someone new that you have just met?
  2. Quest for meaningfulness: do you feel an increasing desire to share meaningful moments with someone special?
  3. Future planning: do you start thinking about sharing the future (home, family, holiday season happiness) with someone special?
  4. Tired of the bar scene and online dating: do you start to think more about quality vs. quantity; ie. dating less but dating more compatible matches?
  5. More than just looks: do you desire a romantic partner that not only physically attracts you, but who also has other qualities that draw you together (shared family values, intellectual curiosity, education, etc.)?
  6. In your thoughts: do you find yourself thinking about someone frequently, and consciously making plans which involve them?
  7. Mutual admiration: do you admire someone and truly value their opinions on important matters in your life?
