It’s quite possible to convince yourself that you’re ready to walk down the aisle with that special someone and be married just because you have come of age, and everybody is already settling down and you’re the only one remaining.

But deep down, you know that you’re not truly ready for that level of commitment. Or you’re not sure, but something keeps needling you each time the idea of marriage crosses your mind.

It's important to be in the right head space before getting

Here are 4 sure signs that you’re not ready to actually settle down just yet.

1. Variety is the spice of life: You’re totally enjoying the freedom that comes with being single – the independence and random hookups. You are not yet ready to give up your liberty to being ‘tied down’ in one lifetime relationship when there’s still a whole world out there for you to explore. You live your life like a sailor on a constant adventure, so the thought of anchoring your ship to be with one person doesn’t sound appealing for now.

2. Turn down for what? The only way you turn is up. Partying and clubbing with friends is way more exciting to you than chilling at home with a special somebody (assuming you have one). Every weekend in the year is already booked for you when it comes to socializing and hanging out with your buddies. There’s no space yet for cosy dinners and deep conversations. 

3. Your career is number one: You’ve still got targets to meet at work and a very high corporate ladder to climb all the way to the top. You’re not ready to pipe down your ambition to accommodate anybody else’s agenda. As far as you’re concerned, until you hit that executive spot, marriage is off the table.

4. You’re a loner: More than anything else, you enjoy your own company a lot. Your me time is extremely important and you’re not ready to share that with anyone just yet. You like to consult with yourself before making a decision, and you know this ‘selfishness’ has to go once you begin to share your life with someone else. And you’re just not ready for that now.
