Is Serious Relationship In Your Future?

Is A Serious Relationship In Your Future? | Anastasia Date

It’s no secret that many try online dating and app dating for different purposes. Yes, the ultimate goal is to meet a person. However, you would never know if the person just wants to have fun or is more about looking for a serious relationship. You’d have to spend a good amount of time getting to know the person first before you find these out.

How To Know If Your Online Date Is Looking For A Serious Relationship

Of course, we can always read about the type of relationship that they are looking for in their dating profile, but people’s preferences change over time. And, it’s a well-known fact that not plenty of online daters don’t bother updating their dating profile regularly. So, there’s no way out of it. You really have to invest your time and take a risk. While you are chatting with the person, make sure to double check the following:

1. Are you a priority?

Whenever you set up an online meeting, does your date follow through? Or, does he or she always cancel because they have other plans? Your date may have invested time in you in the beginning. But, if that time dwindled into mere minutes, allotted for spending time with you, then you have to rethink your status.

2. You don’t really talk about the future.

One good indication that there will be a future between you and the person you’re dating online is future talk. If this person always says that you are going to be together, and do all sorts of great things in the years to come, it is a green flag.

3. Does your online date want to meet your friends and family?

Have you ever asked your date if he or she wanted to meet your friends and family? How did he or she react? If it was a positive response, then great. But, if your date wasn’t really into the idea, you should be watchful.

When you have spotted all of these signs, you have to rethink everything. You may have a tiny beam of hope within you that tells you things might change. However, it’s unlikely to happen. Your online date just clearly wants to have a good time without commitments. If you’re into that too, then, fine. But, if it’s a serious relationship you want, you better move on.

Quick Fixes Common Relationship Negativity | Anastasia Date

Every relationship hits some bumps along the road. It could be external factors or personality differences that cause these bumps. But, these are fixable. The bumps become a huge problem when you or your partner harbor mostly negative emotions. Bringing this kind of relationship negativity into your partnership is downright destructive.

How To Spot Relationship Negativity And How To Quickly Solve It

Most of us don’t even realize that we’ve invited a dangerous degree of relationship negativity into our dynamic. Honestly, when we’ve been in a broken relationship for a long time, we don’t notice these negative actions or words because we feel like they’re already our norm. If you’re in this situation, the list below might be able to help you spot where actions that bring in relationship negativity:

So Much Criticism

It can come from one partner or both of you. It seems that everything the other party does is just not enough and it is met with hardcore criticism that always leaves a mark, emotionally and mentally.

Lack Of Affection

Affection is something nice and positive. When there is a lack of it, the couple is just drawn away from each other. It’s like being with a roommate or an acquaintance – the atmosphere between you and your partner is passionless.

Little Or No Respect And Consideration

When there is no respect for the other person, people can do unspeakable things. It can be with words or actions and these can be really hurtful to the point of no return.

No Peaceful Times

Does it feel like peace is a luxurious commodity in your relationship? It’s hard to achieve. When you cannot seem to find a happy respite in your relationship, then the negativity has reached its endpoint.

Is there still hope when you have spotted all of these signs? The answer is yes, as long as you and your partner are willing to do the work and put in the necessary effort.

How to Fix Relationship Negativity

There is not one singular process to overcome relationship negativity. But if we follow the rule of being kind and considerate, you will certainly drown out negativity with a lot of positive inputs into the relationship. Here are some quick fixes that you can do over and over again in order to pump up your love bank:

  • Have fun. Make it a point to do some fun things together or to find the fun in what you are doing.
  • Connect at all levels. It can be physically through intimate moments or sweet gestures, mentally through discussions, or emotionally, as you profess your genuine care.
  • Put in the effort for commitment. It takes a lot of investment from both parties to make a relationship work. Work hard to build it up—a positive relationship cannot just happen overnight, especially if there are already so many hang ups from your earlier relationship negativity.
  • Examine your fighting style. A lot of negativity stems from your fighting style. Agree to disagree and never attack your partner on a personal level. Just deal with the issues at hand.
