12 Reasons Why Old Souls Have Such A Hard Time Finding Love
1. They have a strong sense of identity
They are confident in who they are, which means they also know – specifically – what they do and do not wish in a partner, what works and what doesn’t. While this is great in terms of being able to pick wisely, it ultimately decreases their pool of prospects quite a lot.
2. Left unchecked, their hyper-intuitiveness can wreck relationships
3. Many are in the throes of twin flame relationships
4. They typically have a bigger aim that must be attended to first – one that love would distract them from
5. They will not settle for anything less than soulmate love
6. While many people can bring them passion, few can bring compatibility
7. They’re less inclined to go out and meet people in modern ways
8. They’re natural healers, and often attract people who need help, not love
9. They dislike the “game”Dating is very tiring to an older-spirited person. Faking disinterest for the sake of looking “cool” or knowing which faux pas other people find off-putting (how long after the first date do you text again?) isn’t instinctive to them, and can stress them out more than they ever find it “fun.”
10. Their standards are sky-highThey expect a lot from themselves, so likewise, they expect a lot from their partners. While this is a good thing, it’s another trait that has to be kept in check: it’s more important to be able to accept the qualities that aren’t deal-breakers than it is to simply write a person off because they’re not ideal.
11. They have baggagePeople who developed their inner selves fast did so for a reason: they had to cope, they had to grow, or they had to learn from some challenging experiences that life set up for them. While this is a good thing on its own, unresolved problems can often re-manifest in tight relationships.
12. They feel fear as intensely as they feel loveThe degree to which they love something is proportionate to how much they fear losing it, or not being “good enough” for it. They don’t just love intensely, they feel everything else intensely, too, and often, that gets in the way of the really great things in front of them.
