But if you are really sure that you are ready to commit then you must ask yourself these things to be sure that you are ready.
Are you ready to accept the fact that being committed in a relationship might entail you to sacrifice some things in your life? When committed in a relationship, you don’t only think of yourself but you think of things that would concern your partner’s life. Commitment is not only being faithful to your partner but you should also be able to sacrifice things when needed and if you are ready to do all that then you are ready for a commitment.
