Ever felt pressured to be in a relationship?Watch
She kind of hinted that she felt she had to be dating someone to 'fit in' with everyone else.
Has this ever happened to you?? I feel like this is quite common at this age (18 ish) when people are sometimes more interested in their partners than friends?
The only time I can think of pressure would be family and cultural pressure, which is harder to deal with than peer pressure.
Theres also the pressure from family as someone else has already said which is harder to deal with.
In the long run I'm not sorry it happened. Like I said, he was a nice guy and treated me very well. He was kind, respectful, etc. He was a good 'learning' boyfriend. I know that sounds terrible but he was safe for me to learn about relationships with. We both went our separate ways when I entered uni. Certainly isn't the right advise for everyone but yes, I did feel pressured to enter into a relationship but not from the guy.
Now that I've been to uni I understand that A LOT of people don't enter into their first relationships until uni or even afterwards. There is no set time table and if you feel your friends are judging you they may not be that great of friends. There is no right time or age to enter into a relationship and I don't suggest getting into one 'just because' but that is what I did..... and it was actually okay.
