So you’ve been single for a while now. Maybe it’s been a few months or years or maybe your entire life. People always say what a great catch you are and are kind of shocked when you respond that you’re still single. They automatically ask “but why”. Sometimes you give them legitimate reasons and sometimes you wonder why yourself. Here are some reasons why you’re still single.
Popular to contrary belief, girls are not constantly looking for their Prince Charming. They are not weak damsels in distress that need saving. Not every girl is looking for a man to fill their fantasies of falling in love and living happily ever after. So the top reason why you’re still single is probably because you’re simply not looking.
Maybe it’s a fresh wound. Maybe it’s been a couple of years. Regardless, you’re not over your ex and you are smart enough to not jump into another relationship. You realize that you’re not over your ex and don’t want to give someone half of your time. If you’re going to date, you’re going to do it right. No rebounds here.
You’re a career-first type of lady. You are too busy to be in a relationship. You are trying to establish yourself in the corporate world. You are trying to establish your own company or build your own empire. You don’t want someone holding you down while you aim to conquer the world. You’ll find a trophy husband afterwards.
You love your pets and your pets love you. You don’t need anything else. You can cuddle and kiss your pets without ever having to ask. You never have arguments with them and they’re never judging you when you order a box of pizza with a side of wings just for yourself. They just hope you share some of that pepperoni.
You’re tired of mediocre relationships. You’re tired of settling for a relationship just to be in a relationship. You’re searching for “the one”. You’re not going to settle for just anyone. You know what you want and aren’t going to jump into a relationship until you’re certain. You’re done with wasting time on relationships that don’t last.
You expect your man to be at least 6 ft tall, funny, handsome, smart, well-off, stable, have a good career, be good with kids, love the same food, music, sports, be vegan, eat gluten-free, play the guitar, have only 1 sister, etc. etc. You are looking for someone to fill an unrealistic list you have and that is why you’re still single.
You don’t need someone to make you happy. You’re perfectly content with your friends. You’re having fun going to bars, dancing with random strangers, and not having to worry about upsetting your boyfriend. You enjoy not having to report back to someone or watch what you say. You’re living the life and you wouldn’t have it any other way.
You’re tired of putting yourself out there. You’re tired of constantly being tossed aside. You want someone that will fight to be in a relationship with you rather than be in a relationship to fight with you. You want someone that will work hard to get you and work even harder to keep you. So you close yourself off and build walls because only someone that will put in the effort to tear them down will be worth your time.
Whatever the reason. Why does it matter? If a girl is single, she just is. There is nothing wrong with her.
What’s the reason why you’re still single?
