4 reasons you are still single
27 April 2016, 22:32
Nairobi - You are still single. It is not that you never get offers.
You do. Every guy you meet tells you how they like you. They even date you. It
seems like it is going great but along the way something happens and the person
withdraws. So you are left wondering what happened that made the situation
change with the two of you.
Someone will tell you it is not you but at times maybe it is
you. When you accept something, that is the starting point of you actually
making the change happen. The following tend to be a turn off to people when
they are looking for someone.
You get out of hand
when it comes to your feelings
Always get to know a person before you start telling them
how you feel about them. It is a great show of character and judgment. You
can’t say you develop feelings from one date and multiple texts. Get to know
someone, interact with them for a while, and only say you love someone after
they have put you in a relationship with them. If they are yet to pull that
card don’t say it. No matter how good they treat you, say thank you, show
appreciation but it is not the time to say ‘I love you’ after a second date.
You demand so much of
someone’s attention when they show their intentions for you
You want to text all day, you now want them to keep calling
and if they don’t you call them. You are already showing them how you will be
like in a relationship with them. Most people do not like the idea of burdens.
They want to know that they will have a bit of personal freedom even while in a
relationship. If you are like this now, what will you be like when they are
with you? That person will pull the plug on that situation before it becomes
See someone from a
distance, you like them, get to know them, you change your mind
This can actually happen. Someone will like you from a far
but change their mind once they get to know you. It does not mean you are a bad person, or
maybe you are but someone can just decide that they cannot survive a relationship
with you. It can be your habits, how you talk, and interaction with other
people or what you will expect from them.
You are not ready for
Some people want a relationship but they are not ready for
one. A person might actually like you but they find out you have a ‘me’
attitude. You might just be expecting for somebody to serve you or cater to you
but you do not reciprocate. Who wants that; no one unless they are very thirsty and desperate to be with you.
