The twenties are considered to be the best phase of one’s life. You are young, wild, energetic and have just started exploring what all life has to offer. You are taking baby steps in the professional world, understanding your own self and figuring out what suits you the best. In fact, this phase has the potential to decide how your life will turn out to be. If you have found ‘the one’ and are in a happy relationship—good for you! For others, getting into a serious relationship in your 20s might not be a great idea. Here’s why…

The twenties is the time when you figure out what do you want to do professionally in your life. Either you have entered the corporate world and working hard (and partying harder!) to step up the corporate ladder. Or, you have an amazing start-up idea in your mind, and you are focussing on your time, energy and ‘emotions’ to make this dream project a reality. While you are working to take your career ahead, all the other things, including a serious relationship, can wait.

Until and unless you are sure about what do you exactly seek in a partner or your relationship, how can you commit to a relationship? You have seen romantic movies and read fairy tale stories, and there is a high probability that you derive the idea of love and relationships from these. However, in reality, you might not even understand the difference between love and infatuation. Hence, it is wise to hold your horses, take your own sweet time and take this plunge when you are sure about it.
Marriage is a life-long commitment and hence, one of the most important decisions you take in your entire life. When you have the option to meet new people, understand their life experiences, date the ones you find interesting and that too without making any promises, why do you want to settle down so early?

Before you make a commitment to someone, you need to understand your needs and emotions. Do we need to explain why? The twenties is the time when you are sexually and emotionally active and can understand what your body and mind want. It is pointless to play with someone’s feelings when you are not sure about your own needs.

When you are still dealing with your hormones, career, sexuality, emotional needs and countless other things, making promises to someone about the future is not really pragmatic. You never know where your job takes you in the next six months, you might want to travel solo, indulge in crazy adventures or anything else. Do you really want to think about your partner’s feelings and seek their permission before doing anything, that too in your twenties?

We are not asking you to avoid serious relationships and stay away from the idea of commitment. Being in a serious relationship has its own perks but one must explore all the possibilities before getting into one. There are many who find their soulmates even in their teens but that does not mean you need to be under any pressure to find one. Remember, at the end of the day, it is all about finding the right person and age has nothing to do with it.
