Love can be a mysterious thing. After spending time with someone, you may start feeling a certain way — only to find out soon after that your partner isn't ready for a committed relationship. Or worse yet, they may not even be emotionally available for one. So how can you tell if your partner is ready for a committed relationship or not?
At first, it can be difficult to tell if someone is emotionally available to love and be loved. Oftentimes, we want to believe that our partners are the one for us and will do whatever it takes to make things work — but this isn't always the case. Rather than waiting for that fateful moment when you realize your partner isn't available, there are some signs you can pay attention to to know if they're ready for a serious commitment.
The first sign is something all couples experience at some point: communication. A key ingredient in any successful relationship is healthy, honest communication. If your partner isn't honest with their feelings or has difficulty expressing themselves through words rather than through physical affection, then this could be a sign they may not be quite ready for a committed relationship yet. Healthy, effective communication doesn't need to come easily – practice makes perfect!
The next sign to look for is trust. Trust is essential in a romantic relationship. If your partner isn't comfortable sharing their thoughts, feelings, experiences, and most importantly, secrets with you, then there may be something more they're holding back. This means they may not be emotionally available to commit to a long term relationship with you.
Finally, take a look at how much and how often your partner is willing to compromise. Compromise is one of the most important elements of a successful relationship and a sure sign that your partner is emotionally ready and available for a deeper bond. If they are unwilling to adjust their views or opinions for the sake of a stronger connection, then this could be a sign they aren't ready to commit.
Knowing if your partner is emotionally available for a committed relationship all comes down to trust — trusting yourself and your judgement. Pay attention to their actions and be willing to talk about what’s happening between the two of you, in order to determine the best course of action for your relationship. With a little bit of patience, understanding and open communication, you will soon be able to tell if your partner is ready for the commitment that comes with a relationship.
