Planning a holiday, leaving a toothbrush at theirs and exchanging flat keys are all signs you're in a serious relationship a new survey has found. While that's all pretty obvious a few surprises have come to light as a result of the study commissioned by Monarch Airlines.

The poll of 2,000 people, revealed the top 50 (yest, 50!) things which indicate a couple are past the "seeing each other" phase, even if they won't openly admit it.

50 signs you're in a serious relationship

So if you reckon you and that bloke you're "seeing" aren't serious then you better make sure he hasn't seen you without makeup, lounging about the house in your pyjamas or buying the cereal they like in your big shop.

And when you start hypothetically talking about if you lived together, then you're in proper serious territory.

The number one sign that you're officially "going out" is when you meet the parents, followed closely by exchanging house keys and planning a holiday. Other clues include, letting them take care of you when sick, seeing each other every other night and telling them how much money you earn.

According to the research it takes five months for a relationship to get serious, so if you're nearing that mark you might want to think about signing off "love from" in their birthday card.
