If you’re an “old soul”, chances are that it has been brought to your attention since pre-adolescence. You know who you are, and you’re hyper-aware of your surroundings.
When it comes to love, you’re shallow in the ocean. You’re different — and that’s ok. BUT, it does mean you’ll have a hard time finding love. Here are 10 reasons why:
- Strong Sense Of Self
They know who they are, which means they also know – specifically – what they do and do not want in a partner, what works and what doesn’t. This is great in that it eliminates much of the riff-raff but very limiting as it narrows the pool of prospects immensely.
- Their Hyper-Intuitiveness Can Wreak Havoc On Relationships
Old souls are deeply sensitive, and their capacity to worry and make assumptions can break relationships that are lacking a strong foundation.
- They’re Caught In Twin Flame Relationships
They’re attached to people that are not permanent matches, but rather, intense connections they’re meant to learn, and rapidly expand, from.
- Greater Purpose That Takes Precedence Over Love
They usually have to accomplish quite a bit on their own before they find love – this is because old souls love deeply, and completely. To be given love too soon would deter them from the other important things they are here to do.
- They Won’t Settle For Less Than Their Soulmate In Love
Average surface-level relationships don’t interest them. Oftentimes this means being alone for longer than what’s “average” as well.
- Many Bring Them Passion, Few Bring Compatibility
Their ability to feel deeply coupled with the fact that nearly everyone finds them fascinating leads to relationships based on infatuation. However, finding a partner who is truly their best friend, deepest confidant and lover is a challenge.
- They’re Less Inclined To Meet People In Modern Ways
Online dating rarely comes naturally to them, nor does finding a hookup at a bar or allowing friends to set them up on a blind date.
- They’re Natural Healers, Often Attracting People That Need Help, Not Love
There’s almost nothing that feels better to an old soul than being able to help someone who truly needs it. However, at some point, it becomes crucial for them to choose a partner, not a charity case.
- They Dislike “Games”
Old Souls Find Dating Exhausting. Feigning 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.”
- Their Standards Are Sky-High
They expect a lot from themselves, so likewise, they expect a lot from their partners. While this is a great thing, it’s more important to be able to accept the qualities that aren’t deal-breakers than it is to just write a person off because they’re imperfect.
If you’re an old soul, the above likely resonated with you. Don’t change a thing. The right person will appreciate you just the way you are.
