Most Helpful Girl
It depends... if it's in regards to what you want in relationships as well as everything else then it needs to be sorted beforehand. It isn't fair to the person you're dating or wanting to get close to, if you turn around and say that you need time to go find yourself. Without her, I mean. Because then you shouldn't really have been dating, but sometimes we don't see these things till later.
If you're focusing on career and advancements then I think it's fine. As long as you can allow time for the other person. We tend to all grow as people through our interactions so it's certainly possible. :)"
