We've done the research, and most singles male and female say they are seriously looking for a LTR(long term relationship). The problem is that their desire to partner up does not align with their relationship readiness status, causing relationship failure, frustration and heartache.
How do you know that your ready for a relationship?
First you should understand that there are three forms of dating relationships:
- Short-Term Recreational
- Long-Term Committed
1.Short-term recreational dating is where singles meet and date for fun, without any expectation of a future together. Both partners are on the same page and have agreed on predetermined boundaries. This can be a useful form of dating for singles who are not ready to commit or want to explore new relationship skills.
2.Long-term committed dating, in this type of dating your purpose is to find a life partner. You have determined your relationship criteria and are focused on building your desired future. The paradox of long term committed dating is that YOU MUST BE A FREE AGENT, staying single and available to find the partner who is right for you through scouting, sorting, screening, and testing.
3.The Mini-marriage is typically driven by fear and the need for companionship, you instantly become a couple. Partners are unaware of their own requirements and often assume they are on the same page. You act exclusive and committed crossing emotional and physical boundariies almost immediately. You ignore the red flags while crossing your fingers hoping it will just work out.
Dating is meant to be a fun and exciting learning experience that helps you discover exactly how to communicate, build trust and create intimacy with another person. Once you have a clear understanding of what you want in a relationship, you will be able to assess potential dates to determine if they meet your criteria.
A successful single practices the four essential skills of scouting. sorting, screening and testing.
