5 Signs that You’re in the Right Relationship

It’s a pretty terrifying thing to know when the person you’re dating isn’t the one for you.  You know they’re too different from you or that you both are going down two totally different paths.  BUT when you meet someone that’s perfect for you, there are certain signs to assure you that you’re in the right relationship!  They do say you know when you know right? 🙂

  • You’re on the same page.  It’s so good to have the same beliefs, morals, and plans as each other.  I’m not saying you can’t differ on things but it’s better to have similar wants and mindsets as one another!
  • Trust.  If you can’t trust the person you’re dating, maybe you should reevaluate why you can’t trust him in the first place.  Maybe something in your past makes it hard for you to trust, but if you truly can’t trust what he’s saying, that’s a major red flag!
  • Openness.  Openness and honesty are two of the best things to have in a relationship.  It’s nice to be with someone that you can tell everything to and rely on them to do the same! 
  • God is the center of your relationship.  This may not be the case for everybody, but for my relationship, I like to keep God in the center.  If you glorify God with your relationship, you’re most likely on the same page and everything else will fall into place!
  • You have fun together.  Nothing’s better than kicking back and laughing till you cry, especially with the person you’re dating.  As important as it is to have those serious moments, it’s just as important to have the fun ones, as well!

Are you in a relationship?  What do you think about these signs?  Let me know in the comments below!

First dates can be extremely nerve-racking, but they can also be a great time to really get to know the each other!  First dates usually mean first impressions, so there are many things to consider before, and during, your date.  If you’re new to the dating world, or could still use as much help as you can get, here are a few things to keep in mind!

  • Your outfit.  Chelsea Crockett - First DateUnfortunately, most of the time first impressions are based a lot on appearance.  I suggest wearing something that will reflect who you are.  If you’re bubbly and like to rock bright colors, go for it!
  • Where to go.  If he didn’t already decide where you guys are going, suggest somewhere that will make you most comfortable!  If you’re nervous about too much small talk over dinner, see a movie instead.  Or if you’d rather do something a little less formal than dinner, go mini golfing or hiking!
  • How he treats you.  Notice how he treats you especially since it’s your first time on an actual date with each other.  Pay attention to his manners such as if he’s on his phone a lot or if he’s only talking about himself!
  • Red flags.  These are so important!  Notice if he says or does something that you would automatically consider a red flag.
  • Keeping an open mind.  Doing this allows you to be open to something you might not be expecting.  Maybe you thought you had the person figured out but he could be much better than you’re expecting!

I hope your first date is everything you’re hoping for and more!

Love, Chelsea

Throughout relationships, there may be times when you start to second guess certain aspects of it. Following your gut feeling can mean a lot more than you think. Sometimes we make excuses for being in a relationship we really want, but it might not always be what’s best. I wanted to help sort out some of the feelings that may actually be red flags in your relationship!

  • Lack of respect. This is a big one! If your boyfriend doesn’t respect who you are, physically or not, then that can be a huge problem. You need to be on the same page in a relationship 100%.
  • Reoccurring stress. If you find yourself stressing several times throughout the week about your relationship, you shouldn’t have to feel that! Relationships should be about making each other a better person and bringing happiness into each other’s lives.
  • Lack of honesty. If you catch your boyfriend hiding certain things from you, maybe you should bring it up. Honesty is one of the most important aspects of a relationship.
  • Not over a past relationship. If you’re not ready to move on, then you’re simply not ready to move on! If your boyfriend seems to frequently bring up an ex, maybe you need to talk to him about it.
  • Negative reactions from your friends and family. If a majority of your friends and family seem to be concerned, maybe you should reconsider. I know some of you think listening to your parents is overrated, but if they have a bad feeling about someone, it’s usually pretty accurate!

If you see any of these signs in your relationship, think about sitting down and having a conversation about it! It may save you from wasting your time in a relationship you shouldn’t be in.

Love, Chels
