He says “I am not ready, let’s continue dating”. Should I agree?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The person you are dating says: “I still do not know how I feel about the relationship, but I really like you and want to keep going and see where it takes us”?  How do you respond at this point?

Some things to consider: Where in the dating process is this request coming; has overall compatibility been established? What do they say they need clarity on?  Is the relationship progressing or stagnating? What will you do during this time to help get the clarity that is needed?

Set a goal and a timeframe.   Not an ultimatum. Don’t pressure.

Sometimes, people get stuck. It is worthwhile to get professional support in making a decision.
