Uncertainty about a relationship is something that makes you confused that where your relationship is going? You are yourself confused about what you want from the person you are with. Either you want him/her to be your life partner or you just want a casual companionship.
Relationship uncertainty and its dangers
At the start of the relationship, you cannot expect certainty as you are getting to know the person you are dating, considering what you feel and trying to understand the whole process.
But if uncertainty continues to prolong in the relationship then it is something to worry about. When you both are holding it back and making no efforts to push your relationship any further and if you develop this thinking that it is better than nothing and there is nothing to lose then my dear you need to know that there is a lot to lose which you are unaware of. Here are some reasons that why is it dangerous to stay in a relationship which is not certain:
Uncertainty can blow up your self-esteem
Uncertainty may lead you to the point where it starts messing up with your mind. You start blaming and feel sorry for yourself. Do I deserve all this? Why can’t I have a stable relationship? Such questions begin to haunt you and will destroy your self-esteem unless you become clear about your relationship. You will start believing that this is how much you can receive as love, and you start to accept whatever is tossed your way.
Accountability is zero
If your status as a couple is with no defined roles and limitations, then it becomes convenient for both of you to overlook or reject the accountability for the other’s well-being. With no set rules, neither of you is going to take the responsibility of the security and the happiness of the relationship.
Realizing that we do not love the person
When all the chase and drama ends, you find out that you might not like this person. When the uncertainty prolongs so does the chase and thus we waste maximum of our time which should have been spent in searching for true love.
Chances of meeting your Mr. or Miss Right reduce
Although you are facing numerous uncertainties in your relationship, still you will never even think about going out with somebody else. It is against your principles. You are in the hope that everything is going to be okay. In doing so, you lose the opportunity to find yourself an eligible partner. Imagine losing someone who adores you the most and one day you will regret refusing to his proposal in keeping your uncertain relationship which will end eventually.
Uncertainties in a relationship make us feel unhappy, lonely and tired. You may enjoy the company of each other, but prolonged uncertainties which are not addressed may cause conflict. The fact that he is not making the first move in proposing you will keep you up all night. Thus uncertainty in the relationship makes you emotionally stressed and unstable.
Hence, as the time passes, it is better to sit and discuss your relationship rather than prolonging uncertainty which will leave you with nothing in the end.
