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

18. It Will Work: You Spend Most Of Your Time Together

While some people like to act the same as they did when they were single, for the most part, when you’re in a relationship, you spend a lot of time with that person. You get along well, you obviously love each other, and you want to grow closer and feel really good about things.

When you two are spending the majority of your time together and it’s within the six-month mark, that’s a great sign that things are going to work out.

You are compatible and both want the same thing: to feel connected to each other on a regular basis and hang out all of the time. That’s good news for your future, especially if you’re thinking marriage since married couples do tend to see each other a lot.

17. It Won’t Work: You Still Haven’t Introduced Him To Your Family And Friends (Or Vice Versa)

There is no set time that you have to introduce your boyfriend to your friends and your parents and siblings (or not, of course, if you’re an only child). However, you would want to do that before you have been a couple for six months.

When this doesn’t happen, it spells trouble, and it bodes the question, “Why not?” Maybe your boyfriend hasn’t been interested in meeting your family and friends and he’s the one who has been reluctant. Or perhaps you’re the one pushing it off because you’re not actually sure that this guy is the one for you. It’s a good idea to think about this.
