Should dating become relationship

Myth: If I don’t feel an instant attraction to someone, it’s not a relationship worth pursuing.

Fact: This is an important myth to dispel, especially if you have a history of making inappropriate choices.

Retaining many of these unrealistic expectations can make any potential partner seem inadequate and any new relationship feel disappointing. Even if certain traits seem crucially important at first, over time you'll often find that you've been needlessly limiting your choices.

For example, it may be more important to find someone who is: Needs are different than wants in that needs are those things that matter to you most, such as values, ambitions, or goals in life.

Despite the stigma in some social circles that accompanies being single, it’s important not to enter a relationship just to “fit in.” Being alone and being lonely are not the same thing.

And nothing is as unhealthy and dispiriting as being in a bad relationship.

Or maybe your dating history consists only of brief flings and you don't know how to make a relationship last.

You could be attracted to the wrong type of person or keep making the same bad choices over and over, due to an unresolved issue from your past.

Myth: Disagreements always create problems in a relationship.

Life as a single person offers many rewards, such as being free to pursue your own hobbies and interests, learning how to enjoy your own company, and appreciating the quiet moments of solitude.
