2. career is the utmost priority:
When it comes to careers, for most people it means serious business; and they’re right. Dating can wait. Especially if you’re starting your career or switching jobs or something, a committed relationship would be hard to keep up with. Maybe the best thing to do at that time is to actually focus on your work. No relationship is better than a bitter one, where all you ever do is complain. You complain about your partner not being understanding enough, while they complain about how you never have time for them.
3. You’ve been out of the dating game for a long time now:
If you’ve recently come out of a long relationship; you probably don’t even remember how the single life was. You become so used to the person you’re with; that some things just kind of slip away. After you’ve gotten over your ex, you might consider trying your luck with dating. Then again, since you’re probably done with a long-term thing for now; casual dating might be something you’re looking for. And it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
