Question: How long should I wait for a real commitment?

How long should you wait to be in a committed relationship?

Some couples simply slip into a committed relationship, whereas others need a direct conversation about it. According to a relationship expert, its socially acceptable to broach the subject after two months.

Should you wait for someone with commitment issues?

But even then, they would have to be pretty close to resolving any issues. But if they are being passive about it (waiting for someone else to do something instead of taking being proactive), dragging their feet or making excuses, theres no way you should wait.

Should I wait on him to commit?

In fact, I strongly advise NOT waiting for him (like waiting around, being his girlfriend, committing to him in your heart, being in an exclusive relationship with him… until hes ready for a relationship with you). But you dont have to “leave him” or end your connection or friendship to him if you dont want to.

How much time should I give him to figure things out?

He may need a few hours, a day, or a week to clear his mind. If you feel like space is dragging on and on, its okay to check-in. Its not fair to leave you hanging for weeks at a time. But giving him a couple of days to cool down is okay.

Is it worth waiting for someone who isnt ready for a relationship?

Waiting can help solidify your partners decision, but even more importantly, it creates a healthier dynamic for long-lasting relationships. In fact, rather than rushing into a major commitment, taking it slow builds a connection that youll both strive to maintain.

Is waiting for someone toxic?

Thus, the idea of waiting for someone, to put it in specific terms, emotionally withholding yourself from other people because you are holding on for someone else to be prepared for a relationship is toxic, because you are subconsciously settling.
