Twenties is that part of life wherein either you make yourself, or break yourself. And truth be told, a serious relationship is one of the biggest deal breakers. It’s not even hard to realize that how many times it has held you down when you could have taken a flight of dreams and aspirations. If you still don’t agree, here are 10 reasons that will make you realize about the things you are missing out on if you are in a serious relationship in your 20s. 1. First things first: you are still shuffling between jobs/internships. You almost have a non-existent schedule most part of which requires utter dedication to work and work alone. 20s demand utter focus on work and career. Where’s the time for love? 2. Heartbreaks actually hurt more when you are in the struggling decade of your life. In 20s, our heart has an edge over what our mind thinks is right. Same happens with relationships in the 20s- you become passionate about them. But most probably it’s hard to find a partner who’s just as much into you as you are into them. So, snap out of it!

3. Serious commitments come with a responsibility and 20s is the time when you really can do without the responsibilities a serious relationship demands. Think you are responsible about stuff? Ask your parents, they’ll enlighten you! 4. You tend to be the most selfish in your 20s. Most of the decisions revolve around three people, namely ‘I, me and myself’. And why not, you are trying to be successful in life. A bit of that attitude won’t hurt. So why put anybody in the mix who expects things from you knowing that you will only end up letting them down?
5. You still haven’t totally discovered yourself sexually. One night-stand, drunk make out sessions with strangers and online dating, 20s is filled with this. Given the fact that sex life plays a major role in sustaining a lasting relationship you need to be well aware what turns you on, consistently. And 20s, without doubt, is the best time to discover that. So, it’s better not to hold yourself back by a relationship. 6. There’s just so much distraction when it comes to liking a certain person. You meet so many people and probably get attracted to so many people in your 20s that it’s hard to draw out your type.
7. You are already not spending enough time with your family and friends, thanks to trying to make it big in life. Add a serious relationship to this soup and there goes your family and social life for a toss! 8. You are just too frivolous in almost everything you do. You have broken promises, gotten into relationships you just didn’t need and bailed out on your partners at the drop of a hat. And of course, you certainly don’t want to break anyone’s heart anymore.
9. 20s is the best time to travel. And truth be told, travelling takes a serious toll on relationships. If you are travelling frequently, chances are that you will always be missing out on the action with your partner and that surely will not go down with them. Also, travelling together in 20s is like day dreaming, thanks to shrunken pay cheques and family constraints. It’s also hard to remain sexually loyal when you travel frequently. So, spare the pain and go discover yourself! 10. Most importantly, serious relationships in 20s screw up your happiness. Nagging partners, fights on trivial issues and failed expectations of getting married are just a few out of a long list. You really don’t want to be tied down by all these mere issues and ruin the best decade of your life.
