I choose the wrong men

I have bad taste in men. Really, really, really bad taste. I believe(d) that once he sees and experiences what I value, he will want what I want. And everything would be absolutely perfect if the object of my affection would just change that one little thing that really bothers me. I am not talking about habits or his imperfections that make him human. It’s the thing that keeps me up at night and creates endless anxiety. It’s the thing that makes me question why I tolerate it.

I still have to remind myself to open my eyes to different types of people that I wouldn’t normally be drawn to. That’s why I decided to stay single. For now. For a while.

I get emotionally attached too soon

So I finally meet a great guy, we exchange numbers, and agree to go out on a date. At this point, I SHOULD be 100% relaxed about the whole thing. Because I don’t even know the guy yet. Right? But here is what I do:

sorry, love, and clingy image

I jump into new relationships with both feet every single time while ignoring all the red flags. Please don’t feel like every guy you date just might be the one after just one or two dates. Don’t obsess over him. Being obsessed should show you that you aren't completely happy with yourself and your life. So you feel the need to depend on someone else to give you happiness, comfort, acceptance, company, excitement, security, etc.

I am single because I know that I still have a destructive pattern with men.

I have high standards

Don’t date someone because you don’t want to be alone. Everyone has relationship standards. Each person has their limit, a threshold for behavior, traits, and values: minimum requirements. We just have to know where we should set the bar.

Don’t chase anyone

And I mean it. If they have to be chased, then they don’t want you. As Maya Angelou says, "When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.” If someone isn’t showing you enough attention - shrug your shoulders and move on. STOP MAKING EXCUSES. It’s their loss, not yours.

Because it’s OK

When did being single become some sort of disease that everyone wants to get rid of?

I am still single because being single is a precious time. I want to discover new things. I want to work on personal growth.

Love yourself first. So hell, that’s what I am gonna do!
