Thought of being in relationship/marriage makes me depressed and anxious Watch

    I'm a 23 year old woman and the thought of having to spend the rest of my life with one man or be tied down to him long term gives me full on anxiety.
    I enjoy the freedom I have right now, I like meeting new men/flirting regulary (i'm pretty confident with my looks so don't worry about being rejected etc) and getting attention from guys. I think having to give this all up would make me depressed as well as bored. Anyone else experienced this? I feel like it's more common with guys than girls.

    Are you just interested in flings right now? I think some people feel the same where they don't want to commit, it's a big responsibility and some people aren't up for it. You don't have to get married if you don't want to. You're only 23 and your stance could well change when you meet "the one".

    Life is full of mysteries. You may be vehemently against it now and think it will stay that way for the rest of your life but who knows.....you could be craving for the family life in few years time when you're bored of your daily routine.

    u don't have to get married-why get anxious over something which you have full control over, don't worry about social standards and ****
