After my previous relationship I needed a break from dating…

Unfortunately I didn’t know this at first; running into situations I quite clearly wasn’t ready for. Blindly doing what I thought was right but quite clearly was not.

For the past few months I effectively dropped tools from dating, had time to myself and came accustomed what my new way of life, despite being single for almost a year now.

Taking from my experiences, here are my 10 reasons why you should take a break from dating:

Moral of the story? Taking a break from dating will mean you get your own act together and get your priorities straight. There is not and will ever be anything equal to time.
