Anonymous asked: How do you know if getting into a relationship is worth it?
Well, you have to think about some things. The most important thing is the future. For instance, are you leaving for college in August? Are you leaving for an exchange? It is not worth starting a new relationship a few months before you’re about to have a new life experience and meet so many wonderful people. You don’t want to be wrapped up in something where you are not. You will both be a different levels of maturity, seriousness, experience, and it’s very difficult coming back into your “old life.”
However, if you are not going away, you still have to think about compatibility. You don’t want someone who’s going to ignore you and only come around when they need something, but you also don’t want someone so clingy that they need to know what you’re up to every second. You need balance, can this person give you that? Do they like the same things as you? Differences are also needed too! If you date someone that likes all of the same things as you it’ll be like you’re dating yourself.
If you have been talking to each other for a while and things are flowing good, why not give it a shot. There will always be the “what ifs,” but if you are doubting the worth of getting into a relationship maybe you should think twice about it. Relationships don’t work well on doubt. Don’t let the person make you feel guilty about not wanting a relationship either! That just means he/she is worried more about himself/herself than you!
I hope this helps xx
