What’s keeping you from love?

It’s usually one of two things:

 

Something you’re doing or something you’re thinking

Actions

 

DISTRACTIONS: Maybe you work too much or spend an inordinate amount of time on something that limits your time and attention to meeting someone special

 

SETTLING: Keep trying to make it work with people who don’t recognize your value or who don't share your core values

 

MISMATCH: Keep meeting or attracting the wrong people, those, for instance, who only want what they can get from you, not what they can share with you

 

FAILURE: Joined single’s groups or services in which you thought you could at least meet someone with similar ideals and standards but found it disappointing

Beliefs

 

FATE: Think you may be destined to be alone or single. Maybe someone told you that this would or should be your fate

 

FANTASY: Think that special person will simply show up at your doorstep one day without you doing anything but hoping

 

FALSE: Think dating events or services are for desperate people or for people who merely want to “hook up”

 

FEAR: Have anxiety or shame about trying something different, believing that you must meet like your parents or someone else’s lasting relationship that you admire. Read: "Fears that Keep Single People Single"
