Yes, it's wonderful to be in a relationship with someone you love but it's not everything in life.

Guest contributor Miles Young shares his reasons on why romantic relationships are seriously overrated!

If you believe your family, the media, and pretty much everyone else, you must have a romantic relationship for a fulfilling life.

Forget that.

Here are 7 reasons that romantic relationships are overrated.

1. Relationships Can Kill Your Financial Stability

When you get married, you accept everything about your partner—including their bad credit.

Studies have shown that modern women are more financially responsible than men in many respects.2

Taking on their bad credit score can affect all areas of your financial stability.

It can even affect your car insurance.

State Farm and many other companies require records of every adult in your household.2

That means an irresponsible person could push your rate up even before you get married.

2. Relationships Get in the Way of Careers

Perhaps it's unfortunate, but many people find it impossible to manage romantic relationships while focusing on their careers.2

Without a significant around, you can stay at the office as late as you want.

Want to work weekends without catching grief?

No problem.

Maybe you'll decide to start a relationship later, but for now, you want to focus on building your career.

3. Relationships Steal You from Your Friends

You always said you'd put your friends before your relationship.

How many times have you seen one of your friends fall away from your usual group because they started dating some someone?

You could fall into that trap, too.

At the beginning of their relationships, couples often want to spend as much time together as possible.

That's fine for a while, but then it becomes a routine.

A year later, you wonder why you never see your friends anymore.
