9 Valid Reasons Why Love Is A Waste Of Time

Before saying 'nooo way’, think over these. Here are 9 valid reasons on why love is a waste of time.

You have no time for yourself.

Your entire world revolves around this special person who is in your life. But what about you? What about your choices and dreams? Thinking about yourself is not being selfish. It’s being practical.

You're always on the phone.

Calculate how much time you dedicate to your phone during the entire day. During the initial stage, texting keeps you occupied pretty much all the time. Imagine how many books you could have read in that time, how many places you could have visited! You become happy with a mere text and sad if your phone doesn’t beep. It’s like your phone rules your world.

You’re always confused.

‘What does hmm mean?’, ‘OMG what did I just type?’, ‘She likes me or she likes me not?’. Questions like these confuse you to no end. You’re not sure about the ‘signs’ and you keep wondering what a certain emoji meant. And then you start overthinking, which is worse because you start complicating even the simple things.

You burn a hole in your pocket.

Want to impress your boyfriend? You have to look good. So purchase that dress and that expensive makeup. Or how about buying that expensive phone for her to make her happy? Admit it. You’re broke all the time. Visiting new places, not splitting the bill, makes love quite expensive!

Most of your behaviour is to please your special someone.

You order food according to his/her taste. Your wear clothes of their choice. And you are at your best behaviour and in fear that you are being judged. You also make sacrifices to make them happy. Why do any of these? Why not stay just the way you are?

You expose yourself to the risk of another heartbreak.

What if this one doesn’t work out just like the others? Why put hopes in a sinking ship? Taking risks is great, but you must also think about the consequences right?

Distraction. It’s a huge distraction.

Compare your work life pre-relationship and post-relationship. What do you notice? If not a steady decline in your performance, then at least your work schedule might have changed. Work goes for a toss (at least for a while), when love is in the air.

You’re always waiting.

Waiting for a call, waiting for a reply, waiting for him/her to arrive for the date. You’re just always waiting. Waiting for endless hours becomes a norm, which gives a break to your fast pre-relationship life.

You have no time for your friends.

Friends don’t exist anymore. You don’t know how to react when they say, “girlfriend mili toh friends ko bhool gaya!”
