In every relationship, there comes a stage when you are sailing in the boat of happiness and things couldn’t be any better. That’s when the ever so crucial question, rather a dilemma strikes; you are willing to move ahead take the next big step but you don’t really know how and when or whether you should even take it in the first place. The one thing which almost everyone forgets is the question, “Are you there yet?”
In the whole pandemonium of “to do or not to do,” we overlook the already present signs which can solve the whole mayhem in our heart of hearts.
The focal point of any relationship is the comfort level you share with your partner. It is the elementary factor that shows the reflection of the intimacy level you have achieved with your partner. So, the quintessential sign of taking the next big step is the comfort level. You can take any step if you are comfortable in taking it with your partner.
Intimacy is the fundamental principle for successful relationships which grows and fosters naturally. But if you are feeling that you are forced into it and it’s not naturally coming then trust your instinct and don’t rush. Wait till you are there!
Trust is the building block in any relationship. One of the four pillars which support and nurture it. You know you can take the move if you trust your partner completely.
The other pillar holding your relationship together is compatibility. If you know he/she is the one into you and you are amazed by the compatibility you share, then it surely is the right time to take things further.
Having a connection with your partner is very important, you know you have it when it just clicks and you know you are meant to be together. But, emotional connect is the primary connection. You know you are ready to take the next step when there is more to your relationship than just libido. This is the one thing that ensures the longevity of your relationship.
Moving ahead with time is inevitable and taking the next step is obligatory. However, taking the next step won’t save a bad relationship from ruins. It just makes a good relationship better, and by no means is the last resort to save the dying. Albeit there are signs which help you in making the right decision but, nothing is more accurate than your gut feeling and love. So, just pay heed to your heart and let it do the rest!
