I'm 23 - never had a boyfriend. There is someone I like. He has asked me out but I have declined as I feel I'm not my best yet. This is because I don't have a job. Once I get started somewhere, I feel like I'll be able to feel better when I go out with him. Am I wrong to think this?
By the way - he is very successful. He played in the NFL, and is now a full time model in NYC. I am a model too, I just don't have an agency yet.
I understand! And for the people telling you to go for it..:they aren't wrong.. eh.. but i don't think it's that's simple either.
That feeling you have where you "declined because I feel I'm not my best" won't just go away. I think socially and mentally you've already subconsciously put his status slightly above yours.
But besides that anyway. In life it's so much easier to have a "better" more fulfilling relationship when YOU yourself feel at the top of your game. Which it seems like you're already in pursuit of. If you feel you need to date right now, or want to have fun with another then yea you can date and still pursue your career. But to me it will be that much more successful and fulfilling when you achieve it, believe in yourself, respect our status in life and find or come across someone on your level naturally as well :) if that makes sense haha.
