10 Things That Happen In The First 6 Months Of A Relationship That Mean It Will Last (& 10 That It Won’t)

The first six months of a relationship could be considered the most crucial time. This is when you find out if you two really get along, if you like each other more than you simply like being able to say that you have a boyfriend or girlfriend, and if you’re compatible in the long run.

For many couples, while their relationship is still fun and enjoyable after they pass the six-month mark, this is when it’s time to think seriously about whether this is going somewhere. While a break-up is never something that someone wants to go through, it’s easier to realize now that you’re not right for each other (or at least it’s easier than dating for five years and then splitting up). It’s nice to know that you have found the person that you’re going to spend the rest of your life with.

There are some ways to tell within the first six months of your relationship if your love story will have an amazing ending… and there are some signs that things just aren’t going to work out. If these 10 things happen during the first six months, you can be confident that this is real love, but if these other 10 things happen, it’s time to find someone else.
