If you’re in your twenties and still not dating, take a moment to answer this question as honestly as you can:
“What’s your reason for dating?”
Your purpose for being in a relationship gives you clarity on what to do. Once you know where to go, you can lead yourself, your partner and your life in a direction that you have decided.
I know for myself, I’ve made a lot of mistakes in the past. I dated women for all the wrong reasons.
I used relationships to fill the internal void of loneliness. My sense of self-worth was based on what other people thought of me.
If this speaks to you, allow me to share some insights on why being single for an extended period of time could actually benefit you in the long run.
Reasons Why You Should Not Date In Your Twenties:
1. You Get to Discover Who You Really Are
Many people, including myself at one point, lose their identity once they date someone. Because they don’t really know who they are and what they want, they’re easily influenced by others.
Self-discovery helps you define your values and set personal boundaries. You become aware of what you will and will not tolerate.
This is important because other people will treat you based on how you treat yourself.
