In an age where men and women are making the most out of their youth by living life in the fast lane, today, we’re going in totally the opposite direction.
Young, living life and… committed? Yes, you read it crystal clear. Being in your 20s doesn’t always have to mean jumping from one bed to another. In fact, according to a survey carried out by Loveawake dating site, this is the period for you to find yourself in a serious relationship — and actually loving it.
Let us give you seven perks of being in a relationship in your 20s.
- You reduce the risk of STD’s dramatically
Of course you need to take care of your health, especially while you’re still young. When you are in a serious and monogamous relationship with someone, you’re far less likely to contract STD’s. In today’s world of online dating and fast-track one-night stands, count yourself lucky.
- Someone looks after you
You know when you’re drunk and no longer mindful on how you’re going to get home? When you have someone who cares for you, trust that special someone to care for you in these situations that you need extra TLC. Not that we’re promoting getting drunk, stupid and reckless here.
- Your family finally stops bugging you
We understand how absolutely annoying family members can get whenever they ask who you’re currently dating. A simple tinder search can help get them off your back… Well now that you have a significant other, they might just finally give it a rest. Besides, they finally have someone to contact when you’re not picking up the phone or replying to your mom’s message.
- She’s your 24/7 cheerleader
Sure work or college gets crappy from time to time but now that you are in a serious relationship with someone, you can trust this woman to cheer you on when the going gets tough. Whether or not we admit it, we do like our egos and self-confidence being boosted.
- You don’t have to deal with being single
You know how your best mates tell you about the challenges of having to swipe left on Tinder all the time? Well you can say goodbye to that frustration because you have her to come home to. It’s a sense of security your friends may ridicule you about but deep down, they wish they have what you have too.
- You’re given more time to enjoy life
Being in a relationship in your 20s allows you to enjoy life with someone without having the pressure of being married right away. You can go on adventures with her, explore places you’ve never seen and have shared experiences others would kill to have. Now, doesn’t that sound so much better than lazy lays every now and then?
- Everything’s just better
The sex is better, the connection is deeper and your overall perspective in life is much more developed. When you’re sharing your life with someone at this age, you’re able to grow with each other, learn from each other and discover things you never thought you’d encounter.
So the next time your friends tell you that you’re taking love too seriously too early, don’t let it get in the way of having a meaningful life with someone.
