Do you find yourself jumping from one bad relationship to the next? Well, that’s probably a sign that you are taking things a bit too fast and rushing into new relationships without really thinking about it.
Most people aspire to being in a steady relationship, or being married, but being single for a while won’t hurt you. Here are ten very good reasons why you should take your time, before you rush into a new relationship:
1. You need time to heal
Even it was a really bad relationship, you will need time to get over it. You can’t simply erase someone that you have been close to from your mind. You must have had some feelings for them, at some time, so give yourself a break, before you move on to someone new.
2. You have plenty of time
Despite what some people say, human beings don’t have a ‘best by’ date attached to them. People can fall in love at any age, so don’t rush things, the right person will come along eventually.
3. You might be doing it to prove a point
You might be angry and you may well want to prove that you don’t need your ex, but you can do that, just as well, by being single for a while. Don’t rush into a new relationship, just to prove that you can, that is not the way that something great starts.
4. You might be just scared of being alone
Some people are so scared of being alone that they will jump into a relationship, for that reason alone. This is just using the other person and playing with their emotions and it won’t make you happy in the long run either.
5. He might be taking advantage of you
Don’t forget that not everyone is always what they appear to be. If you have just come out of one relationship, you might well be vulnerable, so if someone who seems to be too good to be true has come along at ‘just the right time’, make sure that they are not taking advantage of you.
6. You might be doing it, because you are bored
When you first come out of a relationship, you will find yourself with time on your hands. Don’t let this be the reason that you jump straight back into a new one. If you need some company, then go out with friends or family instead.
7. You might just be craving some physical comfort
Just because someone is there, when you need a cuddle or some comforting, doesn’t mean that they will make an ideal partner. Friends may well offer you a shoulder to cry on, but don’t mistake that for anything more than it is.
8. You are being influenced by others
Your family and friends are keen to see you happy and they might try and convince you to get back to dating, before you are really ready. Don’t date, just to please them, because that won’t make you happy either.
9. Because you don’t have to prove anything
Don’t rush out and find the first man that you can. You don’t need to prove anything to anyone, so give it some time, and choose the right one.
10. Because you are worth the wait
You owe it yourself to make sure that you are happy. Rushing into a new relationship too soon is never a good idea, because of the reasons that we have mentioned. Most of all though, you are special, and you deserve to be happy. Anyone who is worth dating will know this and they will wait until you are ready, so don’t be rushed.
