(Akiit.comTaking the next step in your relationship is a big deal, but if you both think you’re ready, here’s what’s most likely going to happen next…

Going Public

So you’ve been dating for a while, and things are starting to get serious – the most obvious thing to do is go public. Let it be known to your friends and family that you’re officially in a relationship now! No more pity parties or random blind dates set up by your friends anymore. People will now be asking you for relationship advice!

Travel Together

The next step is going on vacation together. This is often a little nerve racking for new couples because you’re essentially out of your element, in a whole new environment, meaning your comfort zone is gone. It’s a great way to test how you both are together outside of the typical daily routine.

You can expect to learn a lot more about each other, and may even be the start of the ‘L’ word.

Exchange Keys

Are you around each other’s houses pretty much every day? Maybe you even have your own toothbrush at theirs already. If that’s the case, then you may as well get a key cut right?

There’s a point in the relationship where things will start to change and feel a lot more serious, and when it gets to that point, it’s only normal to let yourselves in with a key instead of knocking.

Move In Together

So you’ve been together for a while now and feel like there’s something more to come. – Well, you’ve already got a key, so why not move in? It is a big step, but if you both see a real future together, there shouldn’t be anything to worry about.

Or maybe you’d like to buy a brand new place as a couple. Why not have a look at some houses in the suburbs, or maybe you prefer to find some mountain cabins for sale! Searching for a home isn’t the hard part – it’s getting used to a new routine. Going to work in the mornings, coming home in the evenings, and sorting out the bills will all be different now. So it’s about adjusting until you find the right fit, together.

Get Engaged

Ready to pop the big question and make someone very happy? In sickness and in health? If you love each other and want to spend the rest of your lives together forever, then it looks like you’re ready to get engaged. You are bound to be nervous – it’s a big commitment, but if you’re ready to make that promise to one another – you’re ready to get married.

This will be one of the most memorable days of both of your lives, so make it count!

Have Children

Baby fever in the air? It sounds like you’re ready to start making a family! Creating a life is an incredible thing, and the fact you get to do that with the one you love just makes it even better. Becoming a parent is such a rewarding gift that everyone deserves to have if they wish.
