So you’ve been seeing this guy/girl for a while but you both haven’t had the serious talk about where you both stand, but what happens if it all doesn’t pan out as you had imagined?
Firstly, if they’re beating around the bush and cannot commit. Be suspicious.
If they’re serious about you and being monogamous, it should be in black and white. But if they dither and starts making excuses, then maybe you should question whether they are actually able to fully commit and be serious. If they have so many doubts and problems at the beginning, then this can dictate what the rest of the relationship will be like. If you strip away all the sugar-coating and kind words, are his actions and body language saying the same thing?
Maybe it’s not the right time, especially if there’s someone else in the picture. Both of your feelings maybe running high, but rushing from one relationship to the next isn’t good for either parties. Having a clear mind whilst apart might make it easier to understand the situation.
Maybe it will be easier if you write it out if you can’t articulate it at the time.
If he rejects you on the spot after the talk with a lame excuse, then maybe he isn’t worth it. But never blame yourself. You can do better than anyone that belittles or uses you.
Although it may feel like it now, it’s NOT the end of the world. Everyone deserves someone who doesn’t take them for granted.
