A million dollar question, are they serious about you?В We have all faced that time in life when we don’t know where we exactly stand in someone’s life.В It becomes frustrating when it doesn’t escape our minds even for a second when we are with them. Here are 5 things that will finally tell you if they love you and are in it for life.

5. WOULDN’T AVOID INTRODUCING YOU TO THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS

This tells a lot about how someone takes the relationship. Relationship is not just about spending time together, it is also about spending time as a couple with others. A person who wants you to be in their life will not hesitate introducing you to their close friends and family.В You both are partners in everything and that’s why it is essential that people close to you know how serious you are about your partner and how essential you are to your partner.В Remember, this will happen naturally if they mean for it to be a long term relationship.В A man or a woman who hesitates in introducing you to their friends is still confused about the relationship.

4. WILL TALK ABOUT THE FUTURE

A person who sees his/her future in you will definitely start discussing it.В Now, that doesn’t always mean marriage, it would be unfair with your partner if you only expect him/her to talk about marriage whenever you both discuss the future. Marriage is the biggest decision of anyone’s life and everyone takes their time to decide. Sometimes, things might be clear in your head and you want the next step to be marriage but at the same time they are not that clear for your partner. Maybe theyВ want a house of their own beforeВ they marry you or even a better job, perhaps.В Let them take their time but observe if they talk about doing things together, down the line. If they talk about things 3 to 4 years from now, then they surely see this going somewhere. В In short, you will know it yourself through the way they involve you in their future plans.

3. WHEN YOU ARE EACH OTHER’S GO-TO PERSON

You will only want someone’s advice on something when you truly respect them and want them to be a part of your decisions. В Let’s say you have been given a choice at work and don’t know what to do, whom do you call for advice?В If your partner takes you seriously, they will respect that you have asked for their advice and they will try and help you out as much as they can.В Same goes for when they need to make any big decisions. If they like you to give them advice even in small things know that, that’s what a PARTNER does. They make you a part of everything they does.

2, THEY VALUE THE TIME THEY SPEND WITH YOU

I am sure you all know this but the real task is to be able to figure this out without them saying it.If they value the time you both spent together, they will make it evident through their actions.Checking with you before making plans with their friends is a huge tell-sign.В That doesn’t mean if your partner doesn’t check with you EVERY TIME you start doubting their intentions. Every person is different with different tell-signs.They might make plans without checking with you because they have already decided that they would take you along or they might make plans and if you are not okay, cancels them or make it up to you by making another plan with you. Respect all these actions, they are doing it because they care about how you feel and also because they want to spend time with you.В If you ˜re the only one pushing all the one-on-one plans then prepare yourself, they might not be all that serious.

1. THEY EXPRESS THEIR LOVE

This is the biggest tell-sign and also the most misunderstood one. It is essential that your partner makes sure to reassure you every now and then that they love you, that you mean a lot to them.В It doesn’t necessarily needs to be put into words or expressed to you in the form of a bouquet. It could be anything that they do for you.В Fixing something that is essential to you or maybe how they put their arms around you when you both watch TV or doesn’t leave your side when you are sick, at times acting silly just to see you smile. Different people express their love differently and you should take it as it is.В Just know, If they are serious, they will make it evident, they will make you feel essential and they will care about how feel.You should do the same for them.
