Being in a relationship is more than being in love. Yes, no one should be in a relationship without love but it is also important to respect, cherish, understand and communicate with your partner always, if you plan on being together for a longtime.
Before making a decision to get a boyfriend, you must know yourself, ask questions, am I ready for a relationship? Can I handle a being committed to someone? Can I make sacrifices for someone other than myself.
If you decide that you are ready for a relationship, that's when the tricky part comes in because you are single and during these period for a lot of people, you would feel like you are trapped in a zone that makes you see love everywhere, couples who are head over heels about one another would keep popping up around you.
