Callie Hansen of familyshare.com, explains why you are still single in this thought-provoking article.
1.You Play too hard to get
Everyone puts up walls. Love has the power and ability to break down defenses and conquer everything you’ve ever known. When things go sour in a relationship, those walls get a bit thicker. Eventually that wooden fence around your heart becomes a steel wall smothered in concrete, wrapped in barbed wire and booby-trapped, with an armed guard patrolling 24/7.
But if you want to fall in love, don’t make it impossible for someone to win you over.
2. Waiting for someone who doesn’t exist
If you’re waiting for Mr. Perfect, I hate to break it to you, but he doesn’t exist (even Superman has his kryptonite). The man of your dreams is simply that: a dream. Instead of waiting for the perfect man, look for the guys who are flawed and worthy of your love.
3. Maintaining low self-esteem
Unfortunately, too many women feel like they need to change in order for men to fall in love with them.
If you believe you need to change yourself in order to fall in love – you are dead wrong.
Love comes in all shapes and sizes. If you are convinced that you aren’t good enough for someone to fall in love with you, you’re selling yourself short. True love means he’ll love you for exactly who you are.
4. Avoiding social situations
It’s all too easy to come home, curl up on the couch with your cat and watch chick-flicks rather than spending time with friends. No matter how much you like to joke that you’re dating Netflix, the real reason you’re still single is because you’re not meeting new people.
Some nights with Netflix are just fine, but spending an evening out means you might bump into the love of your life. But even if you don’t, you’ll be getting out and having fun – enjoying the time you have to be single.
