When you date a guy through an online dating service, it has its own perks. Before you meet him in person, you can learn about him, his likes and dislikes through his dating profile. Also, you can have a nice conversation with him via chatting rooms or emails.
If you have been dating the man you met online in person and now you think it’s time to get into a serious commitment then here are 5 things you should know before you end up regretting your decision.
His Family Origin
If you haven’t met his family, then it’s important to at least learn about them. Ask him questions about his family origin and members to get an idea what is his family like. You can share about yours as well. This will bring you close and help you understand each other even better.
His Dreams &Passions
Though he must have already specified his dreams in his online dating profile, it’s always good to ask him again. This is important because it will help you see if you can be supportive of him in pursuing his dreams and passions or not. Also, this will help you identify if you have similar or at least compatible passions.
His Close Friends
Before you jump into a serious commitment with him like moving in or getting engaged, it’s important to know who he hangs out with, who he calls for advice on a bad day and who his close buddies are. This will help you strengthen your bond. If he shows resistance, it simply means he does not want to share his personal space.However, if the guy readily invites you in his inner circle and wants you to know his friends, then you should consider making a serious commitment.
If you plan on tying the knot with your date, then it’s important to find out whether your date is a spender or a saver. This is important because it’s about your future. If your man is a spender and does not save for rainy days then this can be troublesome. You need to discuss your finances before any serious commitment.
Conflicting Resolving Skills
Conflicts and quarrels are an inevitable part of any relationship. No matter how happy you are together, you are bound to have disagreements and get into conflicts. So,it’s best to learn how he handles conflicts and acts in such situations; does he walk out the door, try to sort things out or is he quick to apologize?
