If you Google “Signs I’m Settling in my Relationship” you’ll be inundated with a sea of articles with titles like:
“12 Signs You’re Settling”
“67 Ways to Tell if You’re Settling in your Relationship”
“1493 Clues That You’re Settling For Someone”
These are all well and good, and they undoubtedly come from a place of genuinely trying to help, but they’re also distracting you from what is actually a very simple answer.
If you’re wondering whether you’re settling, then there is really only one sign you need to consider. The other 11 signs are just additional confirmation.
What’s the number one sign that you’re settling in your relationship?
That you think you’re settling in your relationship.

The next question you have to ask yourself is: is that niggling doubt something that you can live with forever?
