When at school and college, you can feel a bit of a freak if you don’t date or have a boyfriend. So how do you recognize signs you're not ready for a relationship?
As If you don’t have enough to worry about with classes, a part-time job and socialising with friends, there’s the expectation you should also have a boyfriend. Or maybe you’re a working girl now and all your friends have boyfriends and you’re feeling left out. The truth is there is no specific time of life or age when you’re ready for a relationship and there’s nothing wrong with realising and accepting that you’re not ready for a relationship.
Being honest about it can only benefit you long-term. Here are the signs you’re not ready for a relationship:
Relationships can be hard work. And stressful. If you’re already stressed or overwhelmed with your life, a new relationship might only add to the pressure. If you’re exceedingly busy, you’ll feel stressed by not being able to spend time with your partner. If you're not happy, having to deal with the emotions of your partner as well as your own will only add to the stress. Stress is one of the most sure fire signs you're not ready for a relationship.
