Relationships and timing go hand in hand and when you find yourself in a place where you are ready to make the next move in your relationship, but your partner isn’t, then you need to decide what to do next.
Maybe you are with someone that cares about you and sees a future with you, but they are not ready to be completely committed to you yet. If you are with someone that isn’t ready for a future, you need to decide what you want.
Waiting Shows, You Care
Giving your partner time to decide that they want to take the next step in the relationship shows them that you think they are worth waiting for. When you stand by the decisions that they make, you are showing them that their needs matter and that you want to be with them. This can show them even more why they want to be with you.
Learn to accept his need for time and independence and keep working on who you are.
Giving your partner the time that they need to figure out what they want means that you are building a deeper connection with them. When you aren’t rushing them into a commitment you can make your bond stronger and get to know each other better before you get too serious.
On the other point of view though, waiting can cause you to be stressed and sad. It can make you feel that your partner doesn’t want you and doesn’t want to commit to you and it can cause you to be heartbroken.
If you are not sure what is going to happen in your future with your partner, you might need to talk to a therapist.
Unavailable to Others
When you look at your own life you need to realize that when you wait for your partner to make a commitment, you are putting other people aside. This means that you are not able to meet other people that might want to be serious. You are closing yourself off to meeting new people that you might like.
Having a partner that doesn’t want to get serious can cause you to question them. You might think that your partner is only going to wait a little amount of time and then later find out that they are never going to make the decision to be serious.
Should You Wait?
Make sure you consider the good things and the bad things about waiting for your partner to make a commitment. You have to look inside as to what you want and then make a decision. You can take time to think about it and then figure out if waiting is worth it. Do you love this person? Do you feel that you cannot live without them? If that is the answer, then you might want to wait a little longer.
But, instead of waiting forever, you need to set a time limit and then move on if they do not commit by then because you deserve to be happy as well.
