You have your whole life to spend…well…your whole life with somebody. And while I don’t think anyone should ever settle in a relationship, you are bound to do it a few times before you find your perfect match. That being said, reserve those mistakes for your 30s and beyond. Don’t waste the magic of your 20s on the monotony of monogamy with the wrong person (they’re mostly all the wrong person at that age). It’s such a special decade in your life. And, for the record, I fully believe that a relationship can help you grow and thrive as an individual but only once you’ve already done a lot of that by yourself. If you aren’t fully emotionally developed by the time you get into a relationship, it will only stunt your growth. And you’re doing a lot of growing in your 20s. Here is the argument for staying mostly single in your 20s.
Men that age are still cheaters
Men and women mature at very different rates. And the truth is that a lot of men are less-than-faithful in their twenties. They don’t quite yet understand the implications of cheating, nor what cheating really entails. Many accidentally cheat, because they didn’t realize they were in a relationship, or many have emotional affairs, not even knowing that that’s a thing.
