It’s never easy to start a new relationship. But in our generation, it’s even harder to find true love.

Here are some reasons why;

1. Fear of commitment

Labels can terrify some people, but for others, the uncertainty of where the relationship stands is also terrifying.

Being “official” can suggest less freedom and less sexual variety.

The hook-up culture is so prominent in society these days, it allows minimal time for commitment, minimal emotional attachment and more opportunities for physical pleasure.

Hence, some people have a fear of commitment since it requires attention and dedication.

2. Fear of failed relationships

It has become so common to see the people around us getting screwed over. It’s practically impossible to trust someone these days.

People are left with deep scars, wasted efforts and disappointments

We’ve all heard stories from our friends, family and colleagues being related to some sort of cheating scandal.

As a result, some have major trust issues, while others might feel burdened with insecurity from their partner.

3. Walking out is easier

A relationship requires a lot of time and effort.

Most people are not necessarily willing to put in the effort and would rather break it off.

With this being said, for some people, it’s easy to walk out because they know they have other options and they prefer not to be committed to one specific person.

4. Process of recovery

If you have had your heartbroken, it is hard for you to fall into a relationship again because you know very well how helpless and awful heartbreak can feel.

Giving another person the power to put you through the same pain is never easy hence you choose not to be in a serious relationship.

5.The altered meaning of a relationship

Millennials now prefer to ‘hang out’ with each other, since it’s less responsibility and it’s also easy to run away.

This results in a high number of one night stands


In conclusion, if you have a beautiful relationship despite all these, appreciate it since it is very hard to find the right person these days.
