This is definitely a wrong reason. Some people do not let go of the partner even when they are notin love because they do not want anyone else to have him or her. They can’t stand the thought of them being with another and that's plain selfish!

Are you afraid of being alone? This is not a reason to get into a relationship. If you’re afraid of spending time alone, then get a roommate or call up your best friend or find ways to be alone. Believe it or not, you can actually have fun alone. Don’t date someone just because you’re afraid of being alone.

Dating someone for social reasons is not a good reason either. If you like going out and that is the only reason you have the boyfriend or girlfriend and you don't really care about them, I don't need to tell you that this is a wrong reason to be with someone.

If you’re in high school or college and all of your friends are attached, then you may want to be too. You know, just so you can fit in with the crowd. So, you go and grab the nearest boy or girl who shows the slightest bit of interest in you and lead them on a road of heartbreak. Is this the way to go?

You get lonely at night and you hate it. You want a partner. You shouldn’t just go out and grab the nearest person. You should at least have some chemistry with the person. Although, it would be neat if you went in a relationshipwithout liking the person and then fell in love with them. Still, getting a partner for the sole reason of filling the void isn’t great.

2 For Show and Tell

Some people get in a relationship just for show and tell. They may not like the tall, dark-haired guy, but he will make them pretty popular. This would definitely be a wrong reason.

1 For Money

For Money Some get into a relationship just for money. Because they know the other person has a lot of money and will spend it on them and buy them a lot of gifts. This is simply a sign of a gold digger and you don't want to be one.

Those are 7 wrong reasons to be in a relationship. If you do not feel love towards the other person, then you should cut the ropes on it. So tell me, why are you in your relationship?
