Whether you're thinking of making it "official" on Facebook or starting to look at rings together, there are a few questions to ask yourself and your partner before moving forward. Even though our generation is more concerned with social media than our parents' generation, it might be comforting to know that there are relationship milestones to assist you to navigate your relationship, no matter what stage it is in. However, these questions should assist you and your partner (define the relationship), figure out where you stand, and go forward together or separately.
What do I bring to the table that no one else in your world can or has
So, what keeps two people together? It's when they both notice something (or a succession of things) about their mate that they can't live without. That's why it's on the list. Ask a guy why he likes you if you feel it. "So, what do you think I can add to your life?" or "So, what makes our connection unique?" What he says will disclose a lot about how he perceives you and his future goals for the relationship.
Do you trust me
Any connection is built on mutual respect and trust. Lack of confidence in you or your partner is a deal-breaker. It's tough to plan when basic trust is lacking.
Do you think that we are capable of meeting each other’s needs?
Another reason why partnerships fail? They are more concerned with what they desire than what their spouse needs. Wants aren't bad, but they should be considered as icing, not cake. A need is "a requirement" and "something thought necessary". The need for anything is essential. Essentials are "incapable of being ignored." When you know what you need and a new guy seems to be able to supply it, open the door to discuss it with him. Make sure you say something about needs, like not getting them is a relationship killer. Allow him the same. Please be honest and open about whether or not you can meet each other's needs. If you can, this is a sure sign that your relationship is about to progress.
Do you and your partner share similar goals?
Before moving on to the next level, make sure you and your companion have similar goals. What if you want to live in the country and they want to live in the city? Is there anything you both agree on? If not, are you or your partner willing to adapt? If you don't answer these questions now, you might be in trouble later.
What are your love languages?
Love languages are becoming a popular approach to assessing a partner's compatibility. There are five love languages: words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch. The languages are self-explanatory, but a quick Google can assist you to understand them and your planes. You and your spouse should both know your love languages so you can communicate your needs and be loved in the way you want to be loved.
