Being in a committed relationship is quite a feat. After all, finding that right person is something which we all hope for. Here’s a beautiful quote from the book The Fault In Our Stars written by John Green, “You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, but you do have a say in who hurts you”. In fact, you always want to be sure if the person you’re in love with is the right one before you let your heart be fragile and emotionally vulnerable.
What Signifies A Committed Relationship?
But commitment is not something to be taken lightly and that is why we have in store a few tips to know if you’re in a committed relationship or not. Do not fret if you cannot check a lot of boxes because every relationship is unique. But these will definitely help you analyze where your love life stands.
Best Tips To Know You Are In A Committed Relationship!
- You’re comfortable with each other.
When you’re comfortable with your partner, you speak right from the heart, not scared of being judged and end up spending a lot of time together. That’s when a relationship goes to the next level! If you’re in a similar one, be ready to check a lot of other boxes right away.
- You’re the best of friends! You share everything.
Though the idea of a best friend varies for different people, there is something common in all best friendships- best friends know each other very well! That’s right, you know how beautiful your best friend is inside out and that includes knowing all the ups as well as downs. The same goes for a relationship that is likely to last. Sharing secrets indicate that you two are willing to trust each other keeping aside the thought of how these secrets might put you at risk later.
- You talk about the future.
Talking about the future is an excellent sign of a committed relationship. Only if you’re sure about how you want your future to be can you even think about it? If your partner also describes a bigger picture of the future with both of you together in it, you are safe to conclude that he does not think little of this relationship.
- You fight, but you know it is not the end of the world.
All relationships will have some friction at one point but guess what? Arguing over things is in fact pretty important to grow closer to your partner. I am not talking about the ugly fights in rocky relationships but fights that are justifiable and those occurring for a reason. If you are willing to listen to what the other person has to say to figure out who really got the wrong end of the stick, you are for sure in a healthy relationship.
- You find time for each other.
No matter how busy you are, you’ll always find time for important things and if your relationship is important enough for you and your partner even during the busiest times, it is indeed a good sign of a committed relationship. Keep in mind that you need to put in extra effort when your partner doesn’t but without going overboard.
- You’re a team!
You value each other so much that you two feel like a team urging you to use “we” instead of “I”. A team is efficient only if its members communicate well and support each other. You two are more likely to seek advice from each other on some of the most important decisions in your life.
- You focus on making the other person happy.
You may often be surprised at yourself for putting up a front to satisfy your partner’s needs and wants. However, bear in mind that it’s important to not lose yourself in a relationship!
- You respect your partner’s personal space.
Being in a committed relationship does not mean that you have to spend what seems like an interminable time with your partner. In short, privacy and personal space are just as important in one’s life to stay sane.
- You notice and appreciate the little things.
We often take simple things for granted in any relationship but in a healthy committed relationship, you are more likely to appreciate the little things thereby making your partner feel good about himself/herself.
- You express your love for your partner
To love and to be loved is a kind of life we all dream of. That’s why it is essential to let your partner know how much you love him/her rather than just keeping it all to yourself. Won’t you absolutely love it if someone tells you how much they love you?

- You have a good relationship with your partner’s family
Family plays a huge role in a person’s life. If you’ve already met or are planning to meet your partner’s family, it indicates that your partner is willing to take things forward.
You might not be able to relate to all the points mentioned above but just remember that if you take care of things, they will last. And wanting a relationship to last is the ultimate sign of a committed relationship and if that’s the case, you will stay come what may. Cheers!
