Reasons People Often Stay Single For Long

Single for long

Clearly, some people are single and may remain so for long 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.

They may have just gotten out of a meaningful relationship or have dated relentlessly and just haven’t found someone with whom they’re truly compatible.

Fear of intimacy

Most people profess that they want to find a loving partner, but the experience of real love disrupts fantasies of love that have served as a survival mechanism since early childhood.  Pushing away and punishing the beloved acts to preserve one’s negative self-image and reduces anxiety

Rule making

When we act on rules based on our past, we can create a perpetual cycle of disappointing relationships. Staying open is one of the most important things we can do when looking for a loving partner.

Fear of competition

A lack of self-esteem often leads to fears of competing .When we see that someone else is interested in the person we like; we may be quick to back away.

We may feel unwilling to compete, particularly as we get older, and we start to have self-attacks like “Your time has passed; you’re too old for this.

Pickiness

When we view the world from critical or distrusting eyes, we tend to write off a range of potential partners before even giving them a chance. We think of dating certain people as “settling” without ever seeing how that person could make us happy in the long-term.

Unhealthy Attractions

When we act on our defenses, we tend to choose less-than-ideal relationship partners. We may establish an unsatisfying relationship by selecting a person who isn’t emotionally available.

Lack of economic means

When you desire to have a partner but you don’t have a sustainable economic means, it may delay your quest to move on in life.
