You’d think that being an all-around awesome person would make it easier to find a great guy to be with, but the opposite is often true. It might seem contradictory at first, but these are some of the reasons why being an amazing woman often means spending a lot of time single:
1. YOU’RE OFTEN SEEN AS BEING OUT OF SOMEONE’S LEAGUE.
When you’re a serious catch, other people are going to know it. But instead of doing everything they can to make you fall in love with them, a lot of guys won’t even make the effort to ask you out. It’s not that they don’t think you’re amazing — they just think you’re TOO amazing to even consider them as potential partners.
2. YOU’RE A LOT TO HANDLE — IN A GOOD WAY.
Truly awesome women are often a mixture of a lot of things, and the result can be a bit overwhelming for some guys. It’s like when you combine a bunch of colored beams of light and end up with something blindingly white, and honestly, even a lot of great men can’t handle that kind of brilliance.
3. YOU DON’T SETTLE FOR MEDIOCRE.
You probably — no — definitely could’ve found a boyfriend right now if you’d been willing to lower your expectations, but you hold yourself and your partners to higher standards than that. You’re great enough to deserve the man of your dreams, and you’re smart enough to know that settling for anything less than that would be a disservice to yourself. Unfortunately, that usually means you’re going to be waiting a pretty long time.
