There comes a time in any relationship where things start to get serious. Now, I’m not talking about the birds and the bees, marriage or kids.
Nothing that extreme.
What I am talking about is when you start doing things together that couples would do. This is a step forward from having coffee and going to movies and these situations provide opportunities for you to talk and really develop your relationship. Personally, I’ve done this with about five women over the last few years and these moments really give you insight as to whether or not you will be moving forward with the person that you are with.
For example, Jennifer and I were out shopping this weekend and she was looking at kitchen aprons for her grandmother. I learned that she came from a long line of bakers and that her grandmother made the best cinnamon buns. She shared that she had the recipe and that she would make some for me at some point in the near future (we were on date five after all – no rush). I appreciated that she valued tradition, loved baking (just like I did) and I would say that today we really hit it off.
We have a lot more in common than I would have thought – I’m looking forward to date number six this weekend.
