You’d make a great girlfriend or boyfriend and you know it, others tell you the same. Some may even say you’re the best partner someone could ask for, yet for some reason you’re still single. We all know being single and independent is a fantastic feeling, so why is there a voice inside your head asking you why you’re still single. Why can’t people see you’re a good catch?  You may sometimes worry the clock is ticking and you’re not getting any younger and you don’t want to be left alone for the rest of your life, and of course your family are friends are reminding you, you’re not getting any younger. Right?

There are several reasons that you may still be single, here are some reasons you may not be able to catch your ideal partner…yet.

You don’t believe in settling for second best. Many people feel they are running out of time to find someone special so they settle, this is not you.  You know your ideal partner is out there and you refuse to settle for anything less. There is nothing wrong with this, as long as your expectations are unreachable.

You’re waiting to meet someone worthy of you. You work hard, play hard,have a nice home and are in great shape, so why would you not want to meet your equal. You want someone who has the same attributes as yourself.

You don’t live your life focusing on finding your ideal partner. You simply don’t need a partner to prove you can love and be loved. Yes, you would love a partner in crime, but you also want them to be on your wave length. You have probably already been on several dates or had several relationships, but they were not for you. I have always said, You have to go through them to find the right one!

You’re simply too busy enjoying life.You have holidays booked, work very hard, and have friends to see, where would you find the time? I know a few of my own friends like this…

You’re focused on your career, after all it is 2016.Women are the worst offenders for this as they climb the ladder of success. Then suddenly start panicking around mid to late 30s about the biological clock!

Your friends are just too awesome to spend less time with.Every weekend is about hanging with your friends, and we all know that when you date the amount of time you spend with your friends reduces massively.

Your confidence scares people.I have been told many times I intimidate men with my confidence, and it’s true. My thinking is I may want a man, but I don’t need one! Some men have even told me they were to scared of being rejected so did not bother chatting me up! Unfortunately being confident does have its drawbacks.

You’re focusing on yourself.Everyone knows you should know that to love others you must love yourself first. You want to be in a place where you are comfortable with your life, career, and want to know exactly what you want before sharing it with someone else.

You’re in love with single life, so why would you want to settle down?You have built yourself a good lifestyle and don’t want to give it up or even share it. Or you just don’t have the time because you are so busy with your already busy schedule.

Or it could be simply down to the fact that your just not ready.Why go looking if you can’t offer a fully functioning you. One that is available to give love and not just receive it.

Remember all you singletons out there, if you are looking for your ideal partner then you have to make the time and be available!
