Between raging hormones, college applications and dealing with peer drama, being a teenager is tough, but navigating romantic relationships is probably the most intense part of adolescence. Throw in being a teen mom and the dating world becomes exponentially more complicated. In this “Teen Mom 3: A Closer Look” clip, Alex Sekella tells host SuChin Pak why she’s not looking for a boyfriend anytime soon.
“I don’t feel as if I’m ready for a serious relationship, because my priority is 100 percent towards Bellie,” Alex explains. SuChin elaborates on Alex’s comment, noting that there’s no such thing as “in-between” relationships for teens moms — if he’s not ready to commit to something exclusive and long term, and to function as BOTH a good boyfriend and role model for their child, the only place to welcome him is into the friend zone.
