– Insecurities and low self-esteem can sabotage any relationship. And that’s because those who aren’t happy with themselves tend to perceive the world in black-and-white. Things for them are either really good or really bad, and such people usually can’t compromise.
– You’re a busy person who doesn’t even have time for yourself, let alone for others. So your life will by no means become easier if you start a relationship. Relationships require to give and take, and if you’re too busy to give, then you’re setting yourself up for failure.
– You simply don’t feel the need for emotional connection. When you have to talk about your feelings, you hold your tongue. And even when something’s bothering you, you bottle it up and deal with it your own way.
– You’re waiting for that perfect someone to appear out of nowhere and save you from your worries and everyday problems. However, your issues won’t miraculously vanish as soon as you start a relationship.
– It’s also a pretty common occurrence when people prefer to save rather than be saved. Unfortunately, you can’t fix other people. As soon as you decide to save someone from their destructive habits or thinking your perception changes. They become more of a project for you rather than an equal partner.
– You may have an exciting new job, or your studies are taking up all your energy and spare time. When your priorities are elsewhere, you’re not even thinking about dating. And that’s okay! Don’t feel pressured to start a relationship.
– If you think that a relationship is the most important thing in life and everything else ceases to exist as soon as you enter one, then, however contradictory this may sound, you’re not ready to be in a relationship.
– How’s this for a paradox: you aren’t ready for a relationship if you feel happy only when you’re in one! Instead of living your own life and doing what you like, you try to find happiness in someone else. You feel that you aren’t “complete” without your “other half.”
– Sometimes you just won’t listen to what your instincts tell you. By pushing yourself into a relationship, you’re not doing any favors for yourself or your partner. You might like a person, but if you realize that you aren’t 100% invested in this union, don’t force yourself.

  1. I don't really know how to be that happy without a special guy in my life. 🙁 I've tried to make myself feel like I don't need a guy, but I can't. My mom tells me I need a boyfriend, too. She says I can't be that happy without one and I believe her.

  2. It's been four years and I'm still not over the last guy who broke my heart. 🙁 The truth is I still love him and he'll probably always have a special place in my heart.

  3. I recently went on a break up. It happened a lot of time. Just get busy but also have some fun time alone or with others. And true. Don't pressure yourself if you have some career goal. Great video. I can relate.

  4. Relationships are hard work. If you are looking for love in the hopes that it will fill a void, not only will you find it in the wrong place, but it will be damaging. Love yourself, your flaws, your imperfections… everything. Only once you have worked through your own shortcomings and feel confident in who you are will you be able to love someone else, and they you.

  5. I forgot to tell you. Sometimes people have no choice but love live with each other. It's kinda political knot. It's just flesh and meat. Seen it with my own eyes that's why telling you. It's like strangers sleeping in bed. Posing in camera for world. Most reliable relation because whole family it can be one side & thing to make wedding work.

  6. Today is 7 November. In two days time is in memory of when the Berlin Wall came down. One can meditate on, think about, what 'Berlin Walls' need to come down in our individual lives.
