When is it too soon to talk about the fact that I’m only looking for a long-term relationship?
Thanks for your question! This type of conversation is important to have at some point when you are dating someone new; however, it’s all about timing.
First and foremost, with a venue like It’s Just Lunch Seattle, the majority of our clients come to us because they are seeking something long-term. My clients are typically relationship minded people or they wouldn’t be interested in investing in the type of process. With that said, it’s definitely not something that you need to discuss on a first date. When you throw out something like, “I’m only interested in finding a long-term relationship” to a guy on a first date – it’s a turn-off and a red flag. Not only will the man feel pressured to live up to the standard that you’re looking for in a life partner, it seems premature to announce that this is your goal – especially on a first date!
Keep relationship objectives in mind at all times, however, keep them internal until you feel a mutual attraction and commitment. You don’t want a relationship with just anyone, right? You don’t have to wait forever, but definitely wait to talk long-term until you start to feel a deeper connection with someone and you know you’re on the same page (or at least the same chapter).
