Are you still single waiting for that perfect guy to enter your life, wondering where he is and when you will have the chance to meet him. But another year passes and he still hasn’t appeared, you then start to worry. Is this another year being alone and single, having no one to keep you warm on those cold nights , unfulfilled valentines days and watching those fireworks from your window, longing to watch them with someone else? Sorry to start this off as a sad love story with a side of cheese but honestly I do have a point to this.
So after feeling sorry for yourself you start to think about all the guys that have entered your life, were you being too picky? Did you meet someone who could make you happy but you just didn’t want to settle?
All girls have the fear of settling for the guy who doesn’t meet the criteria of their perfect match, but is this okay? Are girls nowadays too selective when it comes to guys, following that all important checklist?
For some girls the list could go on, especially for me, but are we preparing ourselves for failure?
I recently went on a romantic date, he wined and dined me and ended the night with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, some people would say this was a ‘perfect date’. He was my type on paper, we had so much in common from movies to interests and future aspirations. It was all looking positive from the 1st date with a hint of high hopes. However, as the weeks go by you start to realise this may not be as perfect as you imagined. Unfortunately, he wasn’t the man for me, there was nothing specifically that he did wrong; He was a true gentleman and ticked all the right boxes, but the chemistry just wasn’t there. I then start to think is this self-sabotage? Am I ready for a relationship?… is it him or is it me?
Do you ever have this feeling when you’re newly dating? We would love to hear your stories.
