When Itís Better Not To Start Dating
Even if everybody wants to meet people and have a relationship or just spend time casually with someone, there are times when itís better to just stay right where you are at life and not aim to go dating. The reasons vary and are very personal, but here are a handful of situations where you should not consider dating at all.
When you are already in a committed relationship. If you have a boyfriend or girlfriend, engaged or worse, married, then donít even think about going online and posting your profile. Itís not only unfair to your partner, but unfair to others who are seriously looking for someone available.
When you are in mourning. Getting into a new relationship is not what you need to get over the loss of a loved one. You may be looking for comfort and solace in the wrong place. You might end up realizing one day that you actually do not care for the person and you will just end up hurting yourself and the other.
When you are recently divorced. You may think putting yourself out there is a good idea to try and get over the depression of a divorce, but itís better to wait and allow yourself to settle emotionally. Any relationship you try at this point would only end up badly. Give yourself time to heal and get ready to start dating again in a healthy mental and emotional state.
When you are feeling desperate and needy. Some people start dating just anyone so theyíre not lonely. If you feel like youíre already in a desperate and needy state, you might just end up being with the first person who shows you attention. You open yourself up to abuse and being taken advantage of financially. Some people will use dating as a way to move in with you and start leeching off your income.
There are many other examples of situations where it is not a good idea to start a new relationship. Just remember the basic things about starting a new relationship. You have to be ready physically, mentally and emotionally to getting to know another individual and possibly committing to a relationship.
