Why Am I Still Single? : Too Smart For Love

Growing up I always thought highly of myself in a way

“I must be doing something right if I’m the only girl not crying over a boy”

I’d sometimes think to myself. All my friends who were dating and were on boyfriend number three, were always crying after a breakup and I who was on boyfriend number zero was perfectly fine and drama free.

Being young then I thought it was black and white, when something hurts repeatedly why go back to it? (If only I still held on to this)

Maybe I was the only one smart enough to see it as simple as it was then. That probably made me smart.

Then with more age and more maturity my second level of intelligence was

“dating should only be done when you’re willing to further it to the next level”

That lead to me asking ‘what are your intentions with me?’ whenever I was asked out.

Just imagine asking that question to the horny little boys, it made turning them down easier.

The third sign of my “superior” intelligence was this reasoning

“The purpose of dating is marriage and if you’re not ready for marriage then you shouldn’t be dating”

Another thing that most people at my age then didn’t think about.

All of that led me to believing I’m too smart for love.

Because I won’t further anything based on temporary feelings lacking actions and sweet nothings from guys thinking about one thing.

Excluding all of that, it was impossible to be focused on boys like my peers when I was already going through adult problems. Life makes you smart, experiences build you, lessons guide you.

Alas I became a full blown adult right from childhood, one too smart to fall for love and it’s trickery.

  1. Love is not always love, a lot of times it is just lust.
    Proverbs 1:16: The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD.
    1 John 4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
    Pride and resentment/judgement or even fear can keep us from finding the true thing, but they are also there to keep us from eating the bad fruits of life.
    Thank you for being your kind self, open and honest โค

  2. Very relatable, girl! Our experiences shape us, for better or for worse. I also grew up quite early and have been, since then, moving on to being more middle aged every day.
