Most Helpful Guy
To get to the point where I know I'm in it for the long haul... maybe a year. But I think that we never really get to know our partners, so it's a constant but loving fight to continue growing with them, and closer to them.

A few months, at least. It really depends on how frequently we see each other and the quality of the interactions. Shared experience is the backbone of any kind of relationship, because you can't effectively establish trust until you've interacted with a person to see how they treat you (and others around them) and had to rely on them to see where their care and loyalty lies. You also need some time to ease into each other's social and family lives--especially if you hail from different cultural backgrounds.
