There often comes a point in relationships when things slow down a little. You may wake up one day and realize that the relationship no longer feels like the whirlwind of infatuation that it began as. But sometimes they can look a lot alike.
So how do you know the difference between settling down and settling? The novelty of the other person and the situation fade, and the reinforcing properties of the relationship begin to die down a bit. Here's what to keep in mind. Although it's important to compromise in a relationship, one key of settling for someone is that you're compromising too much — or about the wrong thing.
If you really feel the need to be in a relationship, because you're scared to be on your own or you just feel like it's the 'right' thing to do, you might end up in a relationship that isn't good enough or the right fit for you. A good indication of this is if you've let go of things that are important to you — your values, priorities, or goals. You really need to have some basic agreement on issues such as having children, where to live, and what you want your basic lifestyle to look like.
If you're just accepting someone else's principles, lifestyle, beliefs, and needs — without considering your own — that sounds a lot like settling. Not only is settling not healthy, it's also often not very sustainable. On the other hand, you shouldn't let a bit of boredom or apathy make you panic and assume that you're settling.
If you find yourself feeling in love, compatible, happy but just a bit bored, that's not a you're settling. It's a that it's time to put a little more effort into the relationship. If you're not sure whether or not you're just settling, your best bet is to listen to your gut.
Many people have an inkling somewhere when they're settling or in the wrong relationship. If you find yourself settling — or just realizing that you're a little too settled down — it's important to remember that things can change. We may settle for how our partner is during a time of personal transition and then come to change our standards as they change their situation. By Lea Rose Emery.
