Recently, my cousin came to me for advice. She had been in a three-month casual dating relationship and felt like it had the potential to become serious.

When I started asking her questions to gauge if she was ready, I realized that even though she had easily been on 20+ dates, talked on the phone for nearly 100 hours, and sent an endless number of text and Facebook messages to this guy, she knew NOTHING about what mattered for a long-term commitment.
