What If You Meet The Right Person At The Wrong Time? 14 Guys Share Their Story

People have very polarizing opinions on the idea of "wrong timing." Some people believe that starting a new job, just getting out of a relationship, or whatever else would constitute as "wrong timing" isn't a real reason to avoid being with someone. They believe if you meet someone whom you know in your heart you should date, you'll do whatever you need to do to make it work. Others believe "wrong timing" is a totally valid excuse to not date someone, and that the right person at the wrong time is still the wrong person.

Personally, I think you absolutely can meet the right person at the wrong time, but I also think that wrong timing is a bullsh*t excuse used by a lot of people who want to avoid commitment. In short, like many things in dating, I think it just depends. I realize this is not the simplest answer, but when I subscribe to this ideology, I tend to be more successful with men.

The men of Reddit are here to prove that meeting the right person at the wrong time is a totally legit thing that happens. They've bravely shared their heartwarming tales of meeting the perfect women during a time in their lives where either they or the woman couldn't commit.
