Are you still looking for that special someone? You know — that one true love that will give you a happily ever after? Unfortunately, there is a chance you may never find that person. Not for lack of trying, but because there are forces of nature ‘fighting’ against you and most times these ”forces” originate from you.Don’t believe us? Need more proof? Here are the signs you may never find true love.
You haven’t learned from past relationships
Are you into bad boys? Or attracted to women that party harder than anyone else in the room? Maybe you have a habit of attaching yourself to someone who is mysterious and not outwardly affectionate? Being attracted to any of these people can make finding true love difficult. While the “dangerous type” is great for a fling, you aren’t likely to get a long-term commitment out of them.
You’re too close to one of your friends
When you’re single for a long period of time, you may start looking for companionship from one of your platonic friends. While it’s a great way to not feel alone, this type of friendship can keep you from meeting other people. If you are more dedicated to cooking dinner for your BFF than you are about going on a date with someone new, then you are allowing this friend to get in the way of your love life and this may ‘suffocate’ any chances you might have had to find that someone special.
You’re waiting for love to find you
Having this common outlook can hurt your chances of finding true love. While the idea of “letting love find you” has been around for centuries, it isn’t completely accurate. As Your Tango summarizes, you have to go out and date with a purpose if you want to find that special someone. Sitting around and waiting for the perfect person to fall into your lap isn’t realistic.
Your standards are too High and ridiculous
Yes, you should set standards when it comes to dating and relationships. And yes, there is a whole contingent out there that believes that high dating standards are a must. However, this mentality works better for individuals who don’t mind staying single — not someone on the hunt for true love. If your standards for meeting your soulmate are too high and ridiculous — or just flat out unrealistic — you may never find that someone that will fulfill them. So please think again.
You don’t recognize what you need (even when you see it)
At the end of the day, you and your significant other should want the same things in life. Whether it’s financial stability or a close relationship with each other’s families, it’s important to recognize what you need to make the relationship work. Not being able to recognize exactly what you want or need even when it is staring you in the face could mean completely loosing out in the long run.If you can’t identify these your own needs, it will be difficult for you to find someone with the same goals — or to fall in love.
You never admit to your mistakes
