You have reached the first important milestone in a relationship: the six-month milestone, but that does not mean that you can become complacent. In the second half of your first year together things can change in either good or bad.

Another level?

At the six month milestone you will be making a decision, even if it is a subconscious one: a deeper commitment or an extended sentence of casual dating or back to the single life. This is the point of no return: you either make it or break it.

Decisions, decisions

From now on, you must think more about the future of the relationship. Yes, you have had fun with your girlfriend, but can you get over the bad times that you will eventually face, or does the word “hell” comes to your mind?

If you are having doubts, it is better to do it now, before routine sets in because the task will become more difficult with each passing day.

Signs you should continue your relationship

The honeymoon part of a relationship usually ends after the first six months, despite the fact that the beginning of a relationship is never to comfort, the most exciting experience occurs in the first 6 months. The passion is very intense and it should remain like that but with time it fades. You will never meet that intensity again, but that doesn’t mean that the relationship is over. Change is good and if you can survive the honeymoon period unscathed, you can complete your first year together.

Your call

Another sign that you can continue seeing each other depends on the frequency of calls. Do you both make the effort of calling every day or not? After 6 months you should at least call each other once at the end of the day. If you are in a serious relationship that is solid and destined for greatness, you will wake up in the morning thinking about her and fall asleep at night with her on your mind.

Tell each other about your day

Do you talk about serious matters? We tend to avoid these subjects as they make us feel as we are a burden. If the relationship is close enough, you will feel the need to share them. If you do, you are on the right path.

The beginning of the end

If after six months you realize that your girlfriend has a lots of bad habits that you cannot overcome or that every date ends in a petty fight, it is time for you to kick this relationship to the curve. Moreover, if after six months you cannot submit to monogamy, it is best for both of you to break-up.
