It really depends on the kind of relationship that you both want.
You both have to be on the same page as far as what kind of a relationship you both want.
If you are both of the mind that you would rather only see each other on the weekends because that is the kind of relationship that you want, this just might work.
However, if only one of you wants to see the other more than just on the weekends, this relationship will not work.
Again, you both have to understand what kind of relationship you both want.
In the end, without this kind of understanding, seeing each other just on the weekends may become too inadequate for one of you.
So, ask yourself what kind of relationship you are in need of.
If you have a busy life and would much rather keep things on a relatively casual level in your relationship, then only seeing this person on the weekends may work out fine.
Again, the both of you have to be on the same page on this for this to work.
Hence, you have to have a candid conversation with your partner about all of this.
Ensure that your partner understands that you are being sincere in trying to find out what kind of relationship they want and that you aren’t trying to pressure them in any way.
That is the last thing you want to convey.
If your partner feels a sense of pressure that they need to respond in a way that you want, they may not give you their honest answer.
This would be to the detriment of your relationship because then you may continue on with the relationship believing that your partner was being sincere with you. However, at some point, the true definition of what your partner wants will surface.
If it is contrary to your own, it may be too late to save the relationship.
Now, on the other hand, if you actually want to see your partner more often and not just over the weekends, this is a conversation that you will have to have with your partner as well.
Again, you shouldn’t make them feel pressured to comply with what you want.
You truly should want them to give you an honest answer.
This way, you are both on the same page and can then proceed with that knowledge in mind.
Don’t be afraid to let your partner know that you want to see them more than just on the weekends.
Again, they shouldn’t feel pressure to acquiesce.
You are merely being honest and letting them know.
Honesty and openness in a relationship is absolutely crucial.
Your partner may actually feel the exact same way you do.
They may have simply not let you know that because they weren’t sure that you would be okay with seeing them more than just on the weekends.
Hence, communication is key.
If your partner tells you that they don’t want to see you more than just on the weekends and you want more than that, you will have to assess whether staying in this relationship any longer is worth your while.
If your emotional needs aren’t being met, this relationship may not be worth it.
No matter how much you want that to be different because your mind is trying to convince you otherwise, you should still acknowledge the reality of what is going on.
