Reasons You Are Still Single

Most people in the world want to find love at some point in their life. Maybe you have been single for a long time, maybe all of your friends are finding love and you feel left out, or maybe you are just looking for a best friend who will always be there for you. No matter what your situation may currently be, chances are you will look for love someday or you might be looking for love right now.

If you are looking for love right now and have had no luck with meeting a potential significant other, there may be things you are doing or holding onto that are keeping you single. Do you want to meet a significant other who would potentially end up being your marriage partner for life? If the answer is yes, you need to know what could be keeping you single.

Are you holding onto someone who is not available?

One of the biggest mistakes you can make in the love department is holding on to someone who is not available. When I say available, I do not necessarily mean physically unavailable, but also emotionally unavailable. If the person you are hooked on is not in a position to be in a relationship or does not want a relationship, you are keeping yourself single because you are not allowing yourself to find someone who is available and ready for love.

Are you doubting what the other person is saying?

If your potential love interest is telling you that they do not want a relationship or are not looking for anything serious, they are most likely telling the truth. There are plenty of people who choose to not believe what their potential love interest is saying and choose to believe that they will be the one to show them what love is. This is not true. If someone is telling you that they do not want anything serious, they do not want anything serious and if you keep trying, you will be wasting your time on someone who is not available. Instead of trying to change someone, find someone who wants the same thing you want: love right now.

Are you toxic?

Are you emotionally toxic? Are you constantly complaining about your love life or constantly blaming other people because you have not found love yet? If this sounds like you, you have toxic tendencies and a potential love interest will not want to spend time with you. Why? Because you are not taking responsibility for anything in your past, present, or future. In order to find a potential partner, you must take responsibilities for your actions and hope for the best. Do not complain to someone that you have not found love because of instances with your ex. Instead, acknowledge that things did not work out with your ex and plan to move on and do your best with the next one.

Being single is not bad, but if you are ready for love it is always good to know that you are doing all you can to be ready for a healthy relationship. Think about these points and determine if you fall into one of the categories. If so, so what you can to let the negative things go and prepare yourself for your next relationship.
