Top Ten Reasons Why People Hate Being In a Relationship

It sorts out the reasons behind many single individuals

The Top Ten

1 It's Hard to Find a Suitable Partner These Days

I wouldn't mind the concept but not only is nearly everyone at my school taken. I've never felt love since my middle school years ended. Plus I'm not 100% good socially. So I don't even bother asking anyone out because generally I know that 9 times out of 10 that they're taken. I'm probably be one of those adults that's still single in their 20's to be honest. And this is coming from a heterosexual.

Not that I even want a relationship in the first place, but it's not like the selection in my school is that great. All of the guys at my school are complete and utter idiots. - Minecraftcrazy530

Relationships at school are FAKE. I'm sure you'll find the right one in time. - mood333

When I was in 7th grade, most people were in a relationship. All but me, my boyfriend, who I started dating when I was 15, my two best friends, and a few other girls. - IcetailofWishClan

It's hard to find a nice girl or a girl who is interested in me. My time will come... - Therandom

There is a girl somewhere waiting for you. Don't worry about it. It's hard, but it will happen eventually - mood333

2 To Not Let Things Go Complicated (Marriage, Children, Family Gatherings, ... Etc)

My number 1 reason - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

3 To Focus on Their Jobs and Hobbies

That's one of the reasons why I'm not in a relationship. (Another is my parents won't allow me until 18). I'm trying to focus on my schoolwork and my future and that's more important to me. Plus, I think waiting for the right guy is better than having a relationship right now and later find out he is not the one. - CartoonsGirl

Yeah I am trying to focus on my schoolwork and other stuff right now so I really don't have time for any relationships. - cosmo

Do what you want and good luck with school. When you are ready, and when you have a clear mind, the time will come for a relationship - mood333

I'm currently in a relationship, but I just go along with the program. - MangoFruitJuice

I don't know about you all, but this is 100% the reason why I'm not dating - JAE29

Some might argue that you can share your hobbies with your partner, or you can date a person with similar interests. - mood333

11 The Fear of Being Hurt by the Other Person Emotionally

I don't like to date girls, because usually when I get close to one, and am about to ask them out, they start dating someone else, say no, or say yes and end up cheating on you. And all of those things hurt so much... - That_Dude5414
