“What are the signs you will never find love?”
You’ve been single for a while now and it’s starting to get to you.
You’re tired of being alone, but don’t know how to make things work.
You’re ready for a relationship but the right person doesn’t seem to exist.
If you’re looking for love, it’s important to know the signs that your search might be a long one.
You can’t necessarily trust those who say they can predict the future, but there are indicators that you’ll never find love if you continue to follow your current path.
If you’re having trouble with dating or relationships, read on for some signs that you’ll never find love:
11 SIGNS YOU’LL NEVER FIND LOVE
1. You’re too picky
The grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence, right?
Maybe this is true when it comes to dating as well!
People who are overly picky about the types of people they date are setting themselves up for a lifetime of loneliness.
That’s because most people aren’t perfect, and if you’re expecting perfection, you’ll never find it.
There’s nothing wrong with being picky when it comes to finding a partner but if you’re looking for perfection and expect everyone you meet to meet all of your requirements, you might be setting yourself up for a life of indefinite singledom.
2. You keep dating people who aren’t right for you
There’s nothing wrong with giving someone a second chance or even a third or fourth if they really seem like they want to change.
But if you keep dating people who aren’t right for you, you’ll waste your time on the wrong people and won’t have time to focus on finding love.
Yes, you’re not to be blamed for people’s behaviors and problems but you should ask yourself why you always end up with them.
Maybe something is wrong with your selection criteria or you feel like you can change them?
You need to figure it out.
3. You’re constantly having trouble trusting people
If you’ve had too many past relationships end badly because your partner cheated on or lied to you, then it might be hard for you to trust anyone else completely again.
Trusting someone takes time and effort; if yours is broken beyond repair, then it’ll be a problem letting someone into your heart again.
It’s normal to be guarded after being hurt repeatedly but you need to learn how to safely trust people.
Because relationship without trust is like a vehicle without gas—not going anywhere.
Even if you meet an amazing person, you might ruin the relationship with your trust issues.
4. You don’t put yourself out there
This is one of the most common reasons people have trouble finding love.
If you aren’t putting yourself out there, then it’s impossible for someone else to find you.
You don’t expect to be found if you’re hiding.
So, confidence is key when it comes to dating and meeting new people.
If you feel like other people won’t like you because of your hobbies, interests or looks — stop thinking this way.
There are plenty of people who will appreciate all your qualities if only they meet you first.
5. You don’t like yourself
If you don’t like who you are, why would anyone else?
If you don’t respect yourself and have a good self-image, it will be impossible for someone else to respect and love you.
If your friends don’t like being around you because of what they perceive as your negative attitude, then there is no way anyone else will want to be around you either.
You need to check yourself and be sure you’re giving off the right vibes to yourself and also to others.
6. You’re too hung up on looks
You’re so focused on finding someone who is physically attractive that you don’t allow yourself to connect with people who aren’t your physical ideal.
You’re afraid that if you open your heart, you’ll end up with someone who doesn’t look like Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie.
It’s important to be attracted to someone, but if your only reason for dating someone is because you think they’re hot, then you could be missing out on some great people.
Physical attraction is important, but not at the expense of other qualities that are just as essential — like kindness, compassion and compatibility.
7. You’re obsessed with what other people think
If you’re only dating someone because they have a certain job or are “dating material,” it may be time to reevaluate your priorities.
If you’re constantly worrying about what other people think of your relationship, it could be an indication that you’re trying too hard to fit into someone else’s idea of what love should look like instead of finding someone who makes you happy.
8. You don’t know how to ask someone out
There’s nothing wrong with asking someone out on a date, but when you’re too afraid to do so because you think it will ruin the friendship or make things weird between the two of you, then you might be setting yourself up for failure.
If you don’t ask somebody out because they’re “too good” or “too perfect,” then they’ll never know how you feel about them until it’s too late — which could end up being years later.
9. You don’t trust your gut instincts about people
Being able to sense whether someone is right for you can be a valuable skill — if you can learn how to trust it instead of ignoring it because it doesn’t match up with your expectations or preconceived notions about what makes someone good boyfriend material (or girlfriend material).
If there’s something about a guy/lady that doesn’t sit right with you, listen to your intuition and move on before getting too emotionally invested in the relationship — even if they seem like The One on paper.
10. You avoid dating websites and apps
If you want to meet new people, then why would you not join an online dating website or download an app?
Instead, you spend all your time watching romantic comedies and reading books about finding love instead of actually doing so in real life.
I know online dating has its dangers but there are also numerous success love stories.
You just need to be cautious; that’s all.
11. You’re afraid of commitment
Some people are just more independent than others and don’t want to get tied down with someone else.
This is especially true if they’re afraid of losing their freedom or having their freedom taken away from them by their partner later on down the road when they start trying to make big decisions together like where they’ll live or whether or not they’ll have children together.
If this sounds like you, you might not find love because you’re so scared to be committed to someone.
This list isn’t exhaustive but these are common reasons why you might not be finding love.
Work on them and you might just be surprised at the turn of events.
And if you’re not guilty of any, maybe you just have to be patient and love will find you at the right time.
