When it comes to relationships, there’s no right or wrong. Each person defines their limits, their do’s and don’ts, and each person loves who they want to love and how they want to love them.
But the truth is, sometimes we rush into a romantic relationship too fast, and then it ends up not working out, leaving both people damaged with severe trust issues.
We can’t tell you how to feel about someone or dictate how things turn out, but what we can do, is help you figure out how to know if you’re not ready for a relationship.
Keep reading to find out if you relate to any of these signs you’re not ready for a serious relationship!
1. You Just Got Out Of A Serious Relationship
There’s no doubt that jumping from relationship to relationship is pretty self-damaging, even if you don’t realize it right away, you’ll definitely feel the consequences in the near future. Normally this is called a rebound relationship, which is a relationship you get into with the main reason being getting over an ex. You might say it’s different and you actually care for this new person, however, having no time or little time between relationships is a recipe for disaster. You have to grief and go through all that process of sadness and loneliness; after all, you just lost someone important to you. And even though it might be hard, in the end, you’ll come out a stronger person. If you neglect your feelings and jump straight away to another relationship, you’ll be entering this new relationship with a lot of emotional baggage that will come out sooner or later. It’s best to deal with these emotions right away and alone!
2. You’re Feeling Lonely
This might be the number one problem we face in modern dating: deciding to date someone because we’re feeling bored or lonely. It starts with one boring night on the couch, with nothing interesting playing on the tv and nothing else to do, so what do we do? We download a dating app, or start talking to that person we find cute on social media, and often start relationships based on what? Boredom. We know that sometimes it can be hard seeing all the couples on the street and all the romantic movies that are playing on the tv, and that, unconsciously, our minds tell us to do the same. However, trick your mind and try to combat your loneliness with a dinner with your close friends or other friends you don’t see as much and would like to see again, join a team sport where you can meet new people. If you’re shy or prefer being by yourself, do other activities where you can take your mind of things, whether that is going for a jog while listening to music or deciding to write a novel. If you feel that you’re in a dark place, the last thing you want to do is date someone. The relationship won’t last anyway since the reason you’re with that person is just for the company. That’s not fair for the other person, and you’ll feel bad overtime. It’s just not worth it.
