8. You have kids:
As a parent, you place your kids first; even before yourself. You’re kind of programmed to do that. You fully understand that anything you do, can and will affect them. You have to be very careful with your choices and decisions and what’s in your child’s best interest. If it’s dating, it is even more important. At some point you’re going to have to introduce them to your kids and if they’re the kind of person you’d want your kid to be around. It’s even more difficult when you’re kids are still too young; you simply can’t manage time for yourself; let alone someone else. Neglecting your children for someone else is the worst thing that you can do as a parent.
9. Too young for a serious commitment:
Teenage infatuations are magical and everything seems like a fairytale. You’re going to pass out of school and live happily ever after. Sadly, that bubble is burst very cruelly. School is followed by college and a job and maybe another degree or travelling the world. What if while checking things off the bucket list, they check you off too or the other way round is a possibility as well. Even though you might believe that it only takes love for a relationship to last, the reality of things are a whole lot different.
10. You don’t want other people to be affected by your relationship:
A relationship is basically between two people, but by extension it involves the people related to them as well. And you can’t please everyone. Not everyone is going to be on board with your relationship. But if it is someone you hold really important and can’t go ahead with something because of their disapproval; you’d have to make the decision of your life! You could try convincing them; but that doesn’t always work.
Timing is the one thing that you just cannot fix. It is beyond your control. You never know when something could be too soon or too late. You can try and aim for just the right time and hope for things to work out. Get into a relationship when you’re ready for a commitment and take it a pace that you’re both comfortable with.
