    Here’s seven signs that you might not be ready to settle down just yet…
    1. You Can’t Remember The Last Time You Got Past The First Date

    You blame this on the types of guys you’re dating but secretly you pick them because you know they will never be Mr Right and therefore you can easily get away with never having to see them again.
    2. Weddings = Hives

    3. It’s You Who Doesn’t Text Back
    There’s an undying cliché that women spend their whole days sitting by their phones waiting for a man to call. With you, he did call it’s just you didn’t pick up. Or reply to his texts… Or that email he sent you.
    4. Your Mum Has Stopped Asking About Your Dating Life

    5. Also Speaking Of Your Mum…
    She’s definitely not someone a guy you’ve been dating has ever met.
