5 Reasons Why You’re Probably Still Single

“I just don’t understand why I am still singggggglllleeeeeeeeeee…” Heard that before? Ummm, me too. 🙋🙋🙋And sometimes I don’t understand why… they’re banging, smart, sexy – they’re basically the whole package (damn them). Except then they start telling me things about their dating life, and I start to see the signs – let’s call them the “Single Signs”. And again, I’m pretty sure most of us have seen them before…

Below, we take a look at the 5 main culprits of a one way trip to Singletown…

 

You get a lil’ over-excited on a Saturday night…

It’s Saturday night and you are ready to HIT THE TOWN! Boys, I’m a coming for ya! Except you have a few glasses of champers before you head out, and then figure you may as well finish off the bottle (dutch courage, dontchaknow) – and by the time you actually hit da clubs you are wasted AF. Which means you are draping yourself over every guy that passes by – the good, the bad, and the bloody ugly. You think you’re smokin’ hot, they think you need a glass of water to cool off. And then what’s more – you get a little aggro when they’re not interested. Throw in a little shove or two – and unfortunately, you’re not realllly looking like girlfriend material.

 

You’re one super keen bean…

You’ve just had the best date everrrrrrrrrrrr. Good idea to tell him on your way home, right? Wrong!! WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. Don’t tell him that night, the next day, the day after, or even after that. A little mystery goes a long way. And I’ve heard you all say “I don’t like playing games” and we hear ya. But want to know who never says “I don’t like playing games”? People in relationships. Cos they played the games and now they’re all played out. Play the games (just not so much so that they think you’re about as interested in them as a beauty blogger is to the “natural beauty look”).

 

You’re an independent womannnnnnn…

You don’t need no man. You got your girls. You do your thing. You got your shit together and a boyfriend would just complete your perfect little life… Except that attitude is exactly why no man wants to go near you. A man wants to feel needed and wanted, not just a piece to complete your flawless puzzle of life. Be independent – we all like to have some Queen B going on – but make sure you’re not so much so that you’ve practically got a sign on your head screaming: “I depend on me if I want it” (think it, own it, just don’t shout it).

 

You’re looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…

We get it, the perfect man is out there for you. But is anyone ever really perfect? And for me, the ones that seem perfect on paper actually turn out to be the biggest douches of them all. Flaws are good. You embrace them on yourself, on your friends – now you just need to embrace them in a potential partner. (Although, if his flaw is that he likes to bang 5 men and women at the one time just to see which one’s best – maybe rethink my advice. There are flaws – and then there’s just downright signs that say RUN, RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN…)

 

You ’re not going to change your schedule for anyone…

You’ve been single as long as you know and have become quite fixed in your ways. You go to your yoga class at 7am, go to work at 9am, arrive home at 7pm just in time for Married At First Sight, finish watching MAFS and then do some Instagram scrolling before turning the lights off. Repeat. So how can you fit a man into the schedule? And what if he doesn’t like yoga or MAFS? I’ve seen so many relationships fizzle out and die because people just weren’t willing to compromise on their time. If you only leave a 2hr gap on a Sunday for “date time” – then dating you is going to soon wear quite thin. #thetruthhurts
