After dating someone for a while, you may wonder if it is time to change your relationship status on social media and let the world know that the two of you are an item. So, how do you decide if it is the right time? How do you know if you are ready? Though the answer to these questions might be different for everyone, here are a few suggestions.
1. Make sure that you are serious about the other person.
Make sure that the person that you are dating is someone that you can see yourself being with for a long time. There is no reason to flip back and forth between statuses because you are not sure about your future with him or her. Instead try to make sure that you see him or her in your future and are set on staying with him or her.
2. Talk to your partner.
Tell your partner that you want to change your status, and make sure that he or she is okay with it. Not only will you be revealing your relationship to the people that you know, but you will be revealing it to the people that your partner knows as well.
3. Make sure you are ready for questions.
There may be questions that come from family and friends after you change your status, so make sure that you are in the position to answer them. People might be curious about your significant other, and you may have a lot to fill them in on.
Changing your relationship status can signal the next step in a relationship, so make sure that you are ready. When you are, feel free to reveal your relationship to those around you, and be prepared for introductions.
