7 good reasons to take a break from dating

Are your exhausted with the dating scene and want to take a time out? Perhaps you’re not so sure you should, just in case you end up on the shelf and everyone gets taken in the meantime.

If you’re in two minds, below is a look at seven good reasons to take a break from dating.

1) Rediscover Who You Are: Dating can draw you in to a sort-of parallel universe where you’re you – but also someone else. You’re meeting up with all different kinds of guys from different walks of life, and a lot of the time you have to adjust your own personality a little.

2) Because Being Single Is Fun! Hey, you’re single and guess what – lots of people are secretly jealous! Being single is better than dating losers. You get to do whatever you want, whenever you want. Have a blast!

3) You Stop Looking: They say that love comes when we’re not even looking for it. A lot of people will surely agree with this. If you’ve been spending the best part of the last year trying to force love out of a bunch of strangers online, it might be a good idea to take yourself out of the firing line and let nature and destiny take over.

4) You Can Focus On Making Friends Instead: Tired of meeting people for love and it all going wrong? Why not ease the pressure and widen your social circle instead? Meeting new people for friendship is a lot easier than the pressure cooker environment of the dating scene.

5) You’re Not Ready To Date: If you need a break from dating, it might mean that you’ve not been ready for a relationship this whole time. Take a breather and only return to the dating scene when you’re truly ready to meet a new man.

6) Use The Time To Analyse Past Mistakes: One of the reasons you’ve been bouncing from bad date to bad date could be that you haven’t given yourself enough time between each guy to reflect on what went wrong. It’s important that you analyse past relationships so that you can learn from mistakes, ensuring they don’t happen again.

7) A Break Will Save You Some Time: Dating can take a lot of your time, but when you are single you can use all this time for spending quality moments withy your family and friends, or on self development or taking a new and fun hobby, it is an excellent reason to take a break from dating, at least for some time.
