Five Important Questions You Need To Ask Yourself Before You Go Into A Relationship (Pt 2)



2. Am I ready to make a commitment to one person?

We live in an era where total commitment to one

relationship at a time is scarce. Many singles consciously go

into serious relationships with numerous people at the same

time. I strongly believe that if you cannot commit to one

relationship at a time as a single person, you may find it very

difficult to stay committed and faithful to one woman or

yourself this important question before you go ahead; and if

your answer is “no”, then it is better for you wait until you

relationship because everyone around you is in one; you

cannot fake love. You will know if it is in your relationship

or not.

If your answer to the above question is “no” or “maybe”;

and wait until you are 100 percent sure before you go into a
