Not every breakup should be thought of as a failed relationship. Sometimes two partners are simply incompatible with each other, and it takes a certain amount of time to recognize that. If your relationship ends, don’t assume it’s your fault or that it was a waste of time. Often, failed relationships teach you a lot about the type of partner you want. Also, for all the talk about the need for commitment, always remember that it’s better not to commit to a relationship that causes you stress. Contrary to what many people believe, just because you aren’t in a long-term relationship, it doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you. Being single doesn’t mean you are incomplete.
- It is important to test out a relationship in order to truly know if you’re compatible.
- A person may learn a lot from a failed relationship which may have important future implications.
- Being single does not mean that you’ve failed and doesn’t mean you’re incomplete.
