Friends or Lovers? How To Know If This Is Love

Online dating has proved to be successful for you. You have found the woman you seemingly go well with even though you are very far apart. Online dating has found you the woman who you share everyday experiences and memories with, but how do you determine if the feeling is that of friendship or is it already true love?

Are you both under the spell of the temporary attraction or are you both having deeper feelings for each other? Here are some important ways that would help you decide if she is the perfect mate that you have been looking for all your life:

1. A good woman to spend the rest of your life with would be the one most in line with your perspective in life. Although both of you do not have the same interests, both of you share a stable communication pattern that bridges the gap. Good signs of communication in a relationship include being totally honest with each other, knowing each others interest and beliefs, sharing opinions about life’s important issues (such as budget finances, life endeavors, family matters as well as favorite stuff).

When dating, be aware of shallow communication exchange such that she is not quite interested with your activities or your life. The dating relationship is definitely not going to last when the communication between the two of you is blocked due to hidden anger and resentment as well as feelings that are not shared with each other.

2. Love is the central part that holds a serious relationship together. While you are dating, you will know that the relationship is geared towards love when in times of distress and troubles she is always there for you, supporting you and doing what she can to get you out of your bad situation. Love is present in dating when both of you sacrifice for each other, make each other happy, and treat each other as special friends who share the same emotional, physical and mental qualities.

Dating should be ended when you feel that she mysteriously gets sick or isn’t around when you are troubled or when she seems to be eyeing other guys that she could date after wards. When the woman you are dating has already lied to you about her whereabouts, is giving you the cold shoulder, not being genuine with you or has proven to be promiscuous then you should cut relations with her to prevent further damage on your male pride.

3. When it comes to dating, respect is one of the fundamental virtues that lead both to a happy and successful relationship. Your dating partner may be your perfect mate when you feel that both of you accept each others difference and respect your own unique identity. Respect is the foundation of trust and without it, a dating relationship is spoiled by suspicion and hatred.

The dating relationship is good whenever both of you know that each other can commit faults and still accept the imperfections and errors. While dating an impeccable support system can lead you to foster each others unique identity and build a more loving relationship with each other. Taking time to listen to each others thoughts while dating will make you lovers and friends at the same time.

A dating advice for men is to let go of women who criticize you in front of other people, who controls your time and stops you from engaging in your interests or friends, who creates standards for your personality that doesn’t seem the real you anymore and one who never forgives or forgets any mistake that you have done.

Now that you know the standards of a loving relationship, you can now determine if your date is worth pursuing or you should search for another. Anyhow, these are just guidelines so you could be warned and led to a good and loving dating relationship.
