1. Your parents’ opinion is the main one for you.
This precious moment has finally come: you start falling in love. Mom asks about his hobbies and dad is interested in his job. Together they come to the conclusion that he doesn’t deserve you. And you can’t choose between your feelings and their feelings and negative opinion. Don’t be upset! Doctors Tim Fawcett and Piet van den Berg from the University of Bristol conducted scientific research and published an article that says that parents very often don’t like their kids’ choice and it’s a totally normal thing.
2. You’re against trying new things.
Cute, good looking, and independent. You meet your friends always in the same cafe and choose only “chick flicks” when you go to the movies. You’re pretty sure that there are lots of smart guys in the theater, and that there are no creative people among athletes. Your narrow views and habits don’t allow you to move forward.
3. You spend too much time at home.
Fatigue, bad weather, and the depressive winter season are reasons to spend the day inside. Besides, there’s a new film to watch and a book to read. By the way, knitting is also a great hobby. So you stay at home. You always find an excuse, even when it comes to weekends and holidays. Because of this you always feel sad when there’s no one to hug you.
4.There is no place for love in your life.
So you understand that you’re ready. Ready to love and be with someone forever and ever. But you’re not going to see this person tonight because you’ll stay at work (just like you have for the past several days). On the weekend, you’ll see your friends and listen to them talking about their problems. Or maybe you have a child and you’re occupied with them and only them.
5. You can’t let your previous relationship go.
So you’ve finally found time for a date. You spend a lot of time in front of the mirror trying on different outfits and imagining his admiring gaze, bashful smile, and funny jokes. But before you go out, you feel like you just want to cry. Because when you think about love, the image of your ex-boyfriend appears in your mind. He was handsome, brave, perfect, and just the best, so caring and nice. Outstanding psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud wrote how important it is to leave past relationships in the past. Why argue with an expert?
6. You don’t pay attention to your appearance.
There you go! You did it. In a cafe, a waiter pays attention to your friend and takes your order with a serious face. A handsome man wants to know the name of the girl in the bright red dress. A lady wearing pleasant perfume attracts the attention of so many people around her. And you hide your head, with a ponytail, inside a tired, old hoodie.
