This week I discuss the topic: If You Have to Ask Your Partner if They Are Committed, They’re Not! Many couples today are in one-sided relationships where one partner is not really in it for the long haul.
Is this happening to you right now? Are you in a 4-7 year relationship but there has been little discussion about having a future together? Do they have any intention of committing to a marriage or having children?
Here are some red flags to be aware of!
- Are you afraid to ask the questions because you are fearful of how they will react?
- Are you just assuming things will eventually evolve into a committed foreverness?
- Do you justify things because many of your friends are in the same boat so it’s just the normal way things are done today?
- Did they tell you they would like to get married one day but 2-3 years have gone by without another word on the subject?
There are a few problems happening in the millennium, especially with the 35 and under, age group. Dating is not easy and is as confusing as Hell with the mixed signals, ghosting, self-sabotaging insecurities, and fear of commitment due to growing up in a divorced household.
It’s a bitch out there and when you do find someone who fills a part of your checklist, you hold on tight just to be in a partnership. Men and women are lonely today due to having less face to face connections and investing more time into their social media addictions.
More and more couples are ending up in a friend’s with benefits scenario due to all the confusion out there.
This is causing a lot of heartbreak with couples splitting up after a long time together because one of the partners thought they were in a really strong relationship, while the other one was just enjoying the casualness (and great sex) of it all.
This is especially disheartening for women when their biological clocks are now ticking at an all-time high. They invested a lot of years with a partner they thought they would have children with.
Never assume anything!
This is why I stress in today’s video to ask the questions early on in the relationship. If you are afraid of the answer then this is your instincts warning you to move on because your gut knows there isn’t a reciprocated love connection happening here!
Living in a fairy tale fantasy of what MIGHT transpire is not reality
Don’t be the last to know what your partner’s REAL intentions are. Stop wasting energy on the wrong person who has no intention of settling down and having a family, if that is important to you.
Has this happened to you? What advice would you give others? Please watch the video above and leave your comments below! Thank you!
