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

2. It Will Work: You’ve Gone On At Least One Trip Together

Whether you and your boyfriend adore travel or only one of you has the bug to see new places, it’s a good idea to go at least one place during the first six months of your relationship. It teaches you how you would travel together once you get more serious and go more places together.

It shows you if he’s patient and kind when things go wrong and don’t go according to plan since no trip is ever 100 percent perfect.

The fact that you two have gone on at least one trip during this time frame proves that your love is going to continue to grow and things will work out.

1. It Won’t Work: You Have Even The Faintest Feeling That You Settled

Being with the right guy means you would never think that you settled.

If you do wonder about this, even if you tell yourself “Oh no, I’m wrong, I’m not settling, it’s all fine,” you’re just pretending. You would never think this way if this was the person that you were super sure you were supposed to be dating. If you have even a faint thought that you might settle if you continue to date this guy, then you know that it’s time to leave him behind and find someone who you don’t feel like you will be settling with.

It’s not fun to realize this, but it’s more fun than staying with the wrong person and realizing that many years later.
