These Behaviors Are The Reason You Stay Single For A Long Time
You are of the right age. You have a flourishing career or a business that is already reaching stability. You feel that it’s the right time for you to find the right person — your perfect partner in life. But, you find out that it may not be as easy as it may seem. You stay single for a long time, and you kind of already wonder what’s wrong with you.
Here’s Why You Stay Single Even if You Don’t Want To
The above scenario is pretty much common for today’s generation. When everything in your life is where it should be, you expect for love to be the same, but it’s not always going to be a walk in the park. Despite our successes, we might stay single because we can’t stop doing these behaviors:
1. Holding On To Someone
Holding on to someone can mean different things to different people. It could be a former flame that you think no one can compare to. Or, it could be your ideal woman who, most likely, is not returning your interest. Doing this will ruin your chances with a potential partner because you are holding on to someone that you cannot actually have.
2. You Don’t Believe In Love
You might feel this way because you may have been hurt deeply in your past relationship. The betrayal is so too much that you subconsciously push the idea of love away because you feel like you never experienced it. Maybe you need to redefine your definition of love. Love can be both pleasant and hurtful, but all of that is a part of the process.
3. Take Advice From Everyone
There is such a thing as too many cooks spoiling the broth. And that includes our love life. In our desire to find the perfect love, we resort to listening to so much advice. These can be from magazine articles, advice columns, your favorite celebrities, your best friend, your parents, your aunt, or even the local wise man.
Too many advice can confuse you. Eventually, you’d still have to decide on things on your own. Just make sure that the principle you are standing on is something positive and beneficial.
4. You Are Not Realistic
You have grown up reading novels or watching movies with love stories. You feel that these scenarios are ideal for you. The problem is, they do not happen exactly the way you anticipate it, especially in real life. We all must adjust our expectations to something more realistic if we want to find the right person.
These behaviors may seem harmless to you but they’re causing you to stay single. The only way to solve this would be to change the behaviors you’ve read on this list. For more, tips on improving your dating life, check out the rest of our blog.
