Go from Casual to Committed This Christmas
One of the UK’s elite dating agencies has encouraged everyone in a fledgling relationship to use the Christmas season as a chance to evaluate their relationship this year. Bowes-Lyon Partnership is urging people to assess their relationship this festive season and use the many seasonal gatherings and parties as an opportunity to move a relationship from casual to committed.
The month of December is often the busiest where parties, events and gatherings are concerned, and this represents a great chance to introduce a prospective soulmate to friends and family, thus taking the relationship to the next level. Being introduced to, and gaining the approval of loved ones on both sides of the relationship is important to its future success, and Christmas provides a plethora of chances for these vital introductions to take place.
Hayley Bystram, Director of Bowes-Lyon Partnership, the exclusive introduction agency which specialises in matching elite individuals with their soulmates, says, “Many people are reluctant to broach the subject of making a relationship more serious for fear of ruining a good thing, but Christmas offers a number of fantastic opportunities to confirm that a relationship is something more than just casual. Bringing a date to a Christmas party where there will be friends and loved ones announces to them that the relationship is official and important, and gives everyone a chance to get to know someone who will be around a lot more often in the future. This then paves the way for more important conversations, such as where each person sees themselves in twelve months, and whether next Christmas they might be celebrating something of an anniversary in their relationship.”
Whilst casual dating is fun and frivolous, many people joining professional dating agencies like Bowes-Lyon Partnership are on the hunt for something more serious. This transition from casual to committed can be hard, but the festive season provides a veritable springboard for those who are hoping to affirm the level of commitment between themselves and their partner.
The approach of the New Year can also offer plenty of reasons to bring up the tricky subject of how serious a relationship is. Sitting down with someone and discussing what they want to achieve or where they see themselves in the next twelve months can offer great insight into how someone sees a certain relationship, and with all the talk turning to resolutions and fresh starts, it seems an appropriate time to establish how committed someone is.
