Relationships are difficult, to say the least. You combine this with just how murky they can be sometimes, and it only makes things all that much more confusing. When you are dating someone that you feel like you connect with and truly care about, it is only natural to want to take it to the next level. In fact, this is what life is all about, right? That being said, going to the next level can mean a variety of things for a variety of different people. For some, it might mean a sexual encounter. For some, it might mean moving in together. Heck, it could even mean something as simple as a kiss for some couples. Whatever the situation is and wherever you are currently at with your partner, it can sometimes be hard to read certain situations. How does one know when to truly take their relationship to the next level without pushing things?
The Trust Is There
Any good relationship is built on trust. You have to be able to trust your partner and they have to be able to trust you. If you can truly say that you feel comfortable getting your partner’s back and you feel confident that they’ll have yours no matter what, this is a good indication that things can be taken to the next level. For instance, if you tell each other something in confidence and don’t even share it with your best friends, this is a good indication that you truly have each other’s back. This is an important step and a huge kind of trust. Make sure you do not break it because it’ll hurt even that much more.
The Support Is There
Not only do you need trust, but you need support. Do you feel like your partner would support you even if you are doing something that they don’t 100 percent agree with? Could you do the same for your partner? If you answered yes, this is a good indication that you are ready for the next level. This is what it means to think of your partner as your rock. It is a super positive sign for the future. If you have this kind of support, you’ll be able to also broach the subject of VR Porn.
You Both Can Take Accountability
Do you know what the number one sign of an uncooperative partner is? One that is never willing to take the blame for anything. This is a huge red flag and should be spotted and acted upon immediately. If you or your partner do something wrong, either of you should feel compelled enough to apologize. Regardless of how upset you are with each other, you should be able to and willing to take the time to sit down and talk things out. This will be incredibly hard when you are made, irritated, and upset, but it is a necessary step.
The Level Of Intimacy Is Right
Whether it’s a simple kiss, a hug, holding hands, or petting on the couch, every non-sexual touching act can build your intimacy level. Intimacy doesn’t always have to be related to sex or sexual acts, but it is a good sign that your relationship is ready for the next step. In fact, if you can work through your intimacy issue with your partner, it is likely that you’ll be able to work through everything else that comes along the way.
