12 Reasons Why Old Souls Have Such a Hard Time Finding Love

If you are an old soul, or know someone who is, you can easily relate to the fact that these people often find it difficult to find love. Below we provide the top 12 reasons why finding a soul mate is never easy for an old soul.
Strong sense of identity
Knowing very well who they are, old souls also know what they do and don’t want in a partner. This may be an advantage, but it also reduces their chances of finding a partner pretty significantly.
Hyper-intuitiveness which can ruin relationships
These people are inclined to overthinking. Their hypersensitivity and capacity to worry and make assumptions can wreak havoc on relationships.
Twin flame relationships
They are often attracted to intense emotions rather than lasting ones, meaning they end up with people who are not their “forever” people, but, rather sexual attractions.
A greater purpose must be attended to first, one that love could distract
Old souls love deeply and completely because they usually have to accomplish quite a bit on their own before they commit themselves. If they are given love too soon, it would keep them from things that are their priority.
A soul mate is the only one they would settle for
These people look for much more than just an “average” relationship. Usually, old souls don’t settle for less than a soul mate, which often means being alone for quite long.
They rarely find compatibility with other people
They become easily infatuated due to the fact that they feel so deeply and others find them so fascinating. However, finding a soul mate is still a challenge for them.
Non-conforming to modern forms of meeting people
Old souls don’t follow modern dating norms, such as online dating, a random hookup at a bar or a blind date because it doesn’t come naturally to them.
Attracting people who need help, not love
These people are healers and they usually attract those in need. And that attraction is reciprocated. But, at some point in time, they realize that they need a partner, not a charity case.
A dislike for the “game”
Dating can be really exhausting for an old soul. In fact, playing love games isn’t instinctive to them, and can stress them out more quite a lot.
Sky-high standards
As they have high expectations for themselves, they also expect a lot from their partners. Unless kept in check, this quality can be a real deal-breaker because no one’s perfect.
Emotional baggage
Old souls usually carry a lot of emotional baggage because, in order to grow internally, they had to cope, or they had to learn from some challenging experiences life had in store for them. And often, there are unresolved issues that continue to reflect in future relationships.
Fear, which is as intense as love
As much as these people love something, they also fear losing it, or not being “good enough” for it. The intensity of these emotions is equal, which often interferes with their relationships.
