Clearly, some people are single because they choose to be. They are simply not interested in being in a serious relationship at this time in their life.
Others are single due to the circumstances of their lives. But the reality is that we hold more power over our romantic destiny than we often think. To a great degree, we create the world we live in, although we are rarely conscious of this process. We can, in fact, make a choice whether to see our fate through a victimized lens or choose to be goal-directed and take power over our lives.
We can become aware of the myriad of ways we influence the reactions we get from others, even the negative reactions. So, the question for the single person looking for love is: what are the internal challenges I need to face?
Most people have been hurt in interpersonal relationships. This process begins long before we start dating, in our childhoods, when hurtful interactions and dynamics lead us to put up walls or perceive the world through a filter that can negatively impact us as adults. These adaptations can cause us to become increasingly self-protective and closed off.
In our adult relationships, we may resist being too vulnerable or write people off too easily. If, for example, you were raised by parents or caretakers who were negligent or cold, you may grow up feeling distrusting of affection. You may then choose a partner who is aloof or distant.
When we act on our defenses, we tend to choose less-than-ideal relationship partners. We tend to feel devastated or hurt by the repeated rejections without recognizing that we are actually seeking out this pattern. Why do we do this? The reasons are complex and often based on our own embedded fears of intimacy. Many people have an unconscious motivation to seek out relationships that reinforce critical thoughts they have long had toward themselves and replay negative aspects of their childhoods.
These may be unpleasant, but breaking with old patterns can cause us a great deal of anxiety and discomfort and make us feel strangely alien and alone in a more loving environment. The reality is that most people can only tolerate a certain amount of closeness. We are defended about letting someone else in. Our own defenses often leave us feeling pickier and more judgmental. When viewing the world from critical or distrusting eyes, we tend to write off a range of potential partners before even giving them a chance.
A friend of mine felt closed off to a man who pursued her for more than a year. The men she was drawn to instead tended to be unreliable and emotionally distant. What she found, to her surprise, was a high-level relationship choice, a partner with whom she shared a great deal of mutual interest, and, ultimately, genuine love.
We may actually find ourselves in a relationship that is so much more rewarding than those we have experienced. They believe they want a fulfilling relationship more than anything, but they believe even more firmly that no one worthwhile would be interested in them. Our lack of confidence leaves us giving off signals of not being open, creating a catch 22 in the realm of dating. Some struggle to make eye contact or are reluctant to scan the room for who they might be attracted to. When they are drawn to someone, they may fail to pursue their strongest attractions for lack of self-esteem.
A lack of self-esteem often leads to fears of competing. We may be afraid of looking like a fool or of not being chosen. The simple truth is: dating is competitive. It is scary to take a chance and go for what we want and compete, but when we do, we most often find it is well worth it to face our fears.
We end up with a stronger sense of self, and we increase our chances of creating a relationship with the partner we really desire. With age, people tend to retreat further and further into their comfort zones. Modern women are more and more successful, accomplished and self-sufficient, which are all extremely positive developments. Yet as both men and women get more comfortable, be it financially or practically, it is also easier for them to form a bubble from which it is difficult to emerge.
It can feel harder to take risks or put themselves out there. The encouragement we feel to stay home or stay safe often comes from our critical inner voice.
Have a glass of wine. Watch that show you like. No one will be attracted to you. We should take action and make an effort to get out into the world, smile, make eye contact and let friends know we are looking for someone.
We should try new activities and even try dating diverse people as a means to discover new parts of ourselves and what makes us happy. As years pass, we often develop rulebooks for ourselves regarding dating. When we act on rules based on our past, we can create a perpetual cycle of disappointing relationships. A woman I know once dated someone with whom she had amazing chemistry. Staying open is one of the most important things we can do when looking for a loving partner.
Yes, we might get hurt but when we stop taking risks, we reduce our chances of meeting someone we could really have a future with. Relationship rules tend to go hand-in-hand with game-playing. They can lead us to act with less sincerity and authenticity, to close ourselves off from how we feel. On the other hand, staying open and honest will lead us to find a much more authentic and substantial relationship.
We all carry flaws, and these vulnerabilities are especially apparent when getting close to one another. Thus, achieving intimacy is a brave battle, but it is one well-worth fighting for, each and every day, both within ourselves and, ultimately, within our relationships. Well we cannot force it, can we?! I guess we should have to believe in that.
It feels lonely being alone sometimes, but hey cheer up!! Probably there is a good reason. I guess!! Cheer up! Love is not an emotion. It is something we do. Not something we feel. If you want to find love, find someone who is willing to make an effort at a relationship. Not just being in one, and waiting for some magical feeling to make it perfect. After that wears off, all you have left is communication and effort. Where there is no communication or effort, there is no love. People are too driven by movie love story and assume that BS is going to really happen in reality.
Love is work. Constant effort. By both people involved. We are animals, able to roam free when we can not be honed down one individual for the rest of our lives. Just wake up! I Agree.. Why put yourself through that? I always think. YES , totally agree Roger , at 59 still single but found better not happier to be alone than being in a few in a few bad relationships I had. I have really not had much luck dating.
I am a single mum and been single since my pregnancy. Been single for 3years and taking time to focus on my life career etc. But it is so so hard at times. But not impossible. Hmmm, Well i am older a just got out an 3 yr relationship that just ended beginning this year an totally the best decision I ever made.
Working on myself so when the right one comes can see the real truth which is me inside an out. I ended a seven year relationship a couple of months ago, so I kinda get it. This thing is not easy. I just have to trust the process. For me i really do not think this is me ,the men i do meet don,t have,,apartments, cars much money they eant to live off me these are the men that approach me ,i recently met a man that lied oh yes they lie and say their single ,they beg me for sex, money ,wanting to move with me they are no men who does thati am so tried of what is going on ,they never have money or car i fo not want anyti7.
Some people stay single because they want to. Some stay single because they want their undivided attention on something other than a relationship. Some stay single becasue they are forced to care for a sick parent. Some stay single to pursue higher education or jobs that will prevent them from focusing on a relationship.
Some stay single because of devotion to God. People that are attractive are easier to love, but once that beauty is gone, good luck. People have a tendency to settle for whatever they think they can get. If those preconceived factors were not prevalent, than there is little chance of a love connection.
What Do Men Want?

Being in a relationship has its perks: you always have a designated cuddle buddy and someone to talk to about the Game of Thrones. Too often, especially in the beginning of a relationship, couples start to do everything together. Hanging out with your S. While I would love to be with my partner every second of every day, I still cherish my time spent alone.

Sorry, but women are dependent on men
Sigmund Freud famously asked, "What do women want? In Paleolithic times, cavemen were rumored to stay up late into the night with their fellow troglodytes, gnawing frustratedly on leftover bones and trying to unearth the answer to this most perplexing question. The truth is, men are just as confusing to the fairer sex. And we have no shortage of questions when it comes to the male psyche. What do men want?
You're a successful woman with a job to die for, a fabulous home and a supportive husband, but do you ever get the urge to check his mobile phone for love messages? Or his bank statements for intimate meals a deux that you didn't share? And do you lie awake at night worrying how you'll cope if the worst happens, your fears are proved and your husband walks out?
14 Reasons Why Some Women Always Need a Man to Feel Complete
When it comes to men and sex , women may be missing a big part of the story. From the role of porn and the strength of libido, to the importance of physical attractiveness and the desire to chase, popular culture paints a picture that doesn't always match the reality of what happens behind closed bedroom doors. The project was based on interviews with and survey responses from more than heterosexual men about their sexual desire.
Our lives are made infinitely richer by our relationships. I love finding ways to strengthen them at home, at work, and with friends. I got one of the biggest jolts of my life when my year-old mother started a serious relationship just 13 months after my father's sudden death. She had complained about my dad for decades—calling him grouchy, negative, and controlling which he was. I was, therefore, flummoxed and flabbergasted that she'd give up her new-found freedom and jump into another committed partnership with someone who had the same destructive qualities.
10 Life Skills You Should Have Before You Get Into a Relationship
Men are often reluctant to talk about their needs in intimate relationships. We need frequent reassurance about ourselves, our career paths, our efficacy as partners, our sexual prowess , and our attractiveness among other things. I have countless male clients telling me every month that their partners rarely let them know what they like about them. Why not just have more of a good thing? So ladies, let your praise loose. Tell your man exactly what you find attractive about him.
I have my own money, and am most likely contemplating something more important than who's going to buy my next cranberry vodka. I have two hands, and I am much stronger than I look. I enjoy spoiling myself in this way, but even so, I am content without having such luxuries to begin with. I can complete myself, and if a man wants to add anything to my life, it should be something intangible.
Dating Tips for Finding the Right Person
Are you single and looking for love? Are you finding it hard to meet the right person? Life as a single person offers many rewards, such as being free to pursue your own hobbies and interests, learning how to enjoy your own company, and appreciating the quiet moments of solitude. For many of us, our emotional baggage can make finding the right romantic partner a difficult journey.
A nice guy is an informal term for an often young adult male who portrays himself with characteristics such as being gentle , compassionate , sensitive and vulnerable. When used negatively, a nice guy implies a male who is unassertive, does not express his true feelings and, in the context of dating in which the term is often used  , uses acts of friendship and basic social etiquette with the unstated aim of progressing to a romantic or sexual relationship. The results of the research on romantic perception of "nice guys" are mixed and often inconsistent. Studies that explicitly use the term "nice guy" sometimes cite research that does not directly use the term, but which addresses behaviours which are often associated with disingenuous "niceness".
