Finding love is hard.
Sometimes when you’ve been single for a long time, you begin to question yourself. Finding isn’t easy. But the love search is easily complicated by some habits you have.
And the worst part, you don’t even know you’re sabotaging yourself.
Many longtime single people who have been searching for love usually have habits that reduce their chances. Some of your habits could be stopping you from moving past the first few dates. Here are some of the major things that make you undateable:
1. You’ve got a big Ego
We know these kinds of people who think and act like everyone is beneath them. Like they’re better than everyone else. Your big ego could be getting in your way of finding love. If you think you’re better than everyone, how are you going to settle with one person?
2. Working too much
Hard work is good. Successful people are hard and smart workers. But how will you have time to date when you work a 12 hour day?
3. Being too clingy
You know those guys/ladies that call your phone 5 times a day after knowing you for a few days. If you’re one of those people, you’re clingy. And this comes off as being desperate. It could be chasing away your love interests.
4. Unrealistic standards
Unrealistic standards can be hurting your chances of finding love. Example, a girl who wants an RMD-looking kind of guy will wait for a very long time. Or a guy who wants a girl who looks like Kim K and behaves like mother Theresa might find himself growing “mettu” as we say in Naija. Set realistic standards and you will find love sooner.
5. Lying too much
Some people’s names need to be changed to Linus or maybe Pinocchio. This is because they lie about every little thing. Nobody likes being lied to. If you’re a Nigerian Pinocchio (male and female), please change your ways to find a partner.
6. Being too argumentative
Nigerians love to argue. If you’re on a date and your partner thinks A is better than B. And you think B is better than A. There is no need to talk them to death till they agree with you. Nobody likes an argumentative partner. Respect people’s rights to their opinions even if it’s different from yours.
