i was offered a shidduch 2 months ago and i didnt feel ready, so i said not right now, and now again the same boy is being told to me...but heres the thing, im not ready i am not "looking" and i really dont want to go out with him, but my parents are being so persistant and telling me i need to "move on" but im not even 19 yet i have my plans for next year...how can i show them im not ready???

are you really not ready or are you nervous? is there something about the boy that you are uncomfortable about? be sure that it's not these things first-and then the best thing to do really is to lay it all out on the table. can you speak it out with your parents?

i dont really know much about this topic, but this was my initial reaction:
many, many times, especially recently, there have been engagements, and then marriages that have been rushed b/c of pressure from parents. unfortunately, too many of them have resulted in serious shalom bayis problems or divorce because once they got married, it was obvious that they just were'nt for each other. not yet 19 yet? that is yooooooooung...whats the rush? your bashert isnt running away. maybe you can contact a Rav or someone else who can offer you guidance of how to deal with this, but please please be careful!! this is your life we're talking about. you NEED to feel ready before you jump into such a major committment. explain this respectfully to your parents and ask them if they can please ease up on the pressure; you'll tell them when you are ready.
hatzlacha raba and may everyone find their zivug at the right time.

ur not even 19, neither am i. we're babies. why should u be pressured to be dating now? If u dont feel ready, u dont feel ready. theres nothing wrong w waiting a year. u wont even be twenty. whats the rush?
experience under ur belt, lol, this isnt like job training, its ur future husband. u dont need experience to date
