How do I know when I am ready to commit?

Assessing when you are ready to commit can take some time and it’s different for everyone. Below are 10 questions to help you consider if you are ready to commit to a relationship:

  1. Do you feel that you are still unresolved from a past break up? Sometimes it can take some time before you are ready for new committed relationship and that’s not a bad thing.
  2. Are you aware of your emotional triggers and know how to cope with them on your own?
  3. Do you have the ability to present who you are and want to become clearly and honestly?
  4. Does the idea of committing feel exciting or confining to you?
  5. Are you able to be vulnerable with someone new?
  6. How resilient do you feel to relationship challenges?
  7. Do you understand that love and commitment need constant reinvestment of time, energy, and love?
  8. Can you view a committed relationship as an ever-transforming entity?
  9. Knowing your emotional triggers, are you screening for this in assessing your relationship prospects?
  10. Do you still believe that great long-term relationships are possible?
