Rushing Into Relationships
So, now a days I feel like a lot of teens feel the need of rushing themselves into a relationship and when they do they end up having a relationship with someone that only brings a heartache. One thing that I’ve learned, is that everything takes time and the more you rush things the bigger probability you have of things not working out. If something is meant to be it will be, don’t rush it. Don’t be in love with the idea of love, it’s a tricky thing but that’s why you have to take your time. Also, how do you know when a guy is “the one” or even a “potential one”? How do you know if he is really into you, or if he only wants you for sexual purposes?
Here’s a tip: If a guy is willing to wait for you and willing to respect your choices, he could be a potential candidate!
Quick story, I really liked this guy he was 3 years older than me and we started talking one day and we continued talking. He liked me and I liked him, we hung out but only as friends, no kissing, no touching, just friends because he knew that I was not ready to be in a relationship. Well, this continued for over three years and yeah it seems like a long time but that’s the beauty of it! After three years we still had feelings for each other, well needless to say he’s now my boyfriend and I love the fact that he was willing to wait for me that long. I don’t mean that you should wait three years to be in a relationship with someone haha but just wait until you are ready. If a guy asks you out and you barely met him don’t pull an Anna (Frozen reference) and say yes to him just because he asked because you’re most likely in love with the idea of love.
It’s okay to say no!
Just think things through, good things take time and if it’s meant to be, it will be! You all deserve better than a boy or a girl that is just a passing phase. It’s okay to wait, it’s okay to say no, it’s okay to want to be happy. Don’t be pressured into wanting to be in a relationship just because everyone else is. It’s okay, just do you. In the end, everything falls into place so take your time.
Normally I like me and my group of friends giving out the advice, and don’t like publishing any little advice write-ups we receive. But this is some pretty sound and solid advice, and if you’ve ever wondered about whether you should rush into a relationship, or have questioned whether someone likes you or is just using you, this is a nice read.
