When it comes to relationships, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Every couple is different and the amount of time it takes for a relationship to become official can vary. However, according to Sarah Kahan, a licensed clinical social worker in Brooklyn, there are some signs that can help you determine when it's the right time to make your relationship official. Kahan suggests that couples wait between one and three months before making their relationship official.
This gives both partners time to get to know each other and decide if they are compatible. It's important not to rush into a relationship too quickly, as this can lead to problems down the line. When you do decide to make your relationship official, it's important to have an open and honest conversation with your partner. Talk about what you both want out of the relationship and make sure you are on the same page.
This will help ensure that both of you are comfortable with the decision and that you are both committed to making it work. It's also important to pay attention to how your partner is feeling. If they seem hesitant or unsure about taking the next step, it may be best to wait a bit longer before making it official. On the other hand, if they seem excited and eager to move forward, then it may be time to take the plunge.
At the end of the day, there is no set rule for when a relationship should become official. Every couple is different and it's important to take your time and make sure you are both ready before taking that next step.
