I have never been in a relationship before

July 26, 2014

I have never been in a relationship before, and I wonder if it is because I am too picky in looking for partners. While looking for potential girlfriends, I never seem to get the 'perfect storm': Similarities in personalities and interests, physical attraction, and reciprocated interest. It always ever seems to be just two at a time. My friends insist I just haven't met the 'right person'... But can I honestly expect to meet such a 'perfect storm' person, or is that just a fairy tale?


Babycakes,

It is very normal and not too much to ask for similarities in personalities and interests, physical attraction, and reciprocated interest. It may be very possible that you haven’t met the right person, which is completely fine because you should definitely wait for that special someone! However, it is important to consider whether your standards for each of these 3 categories are realistic. Think about it a bit, honey. In the meantime, keep your chin up, strut with confidence, and shake what your mama gave ya! Mama Luv is here to help.

Love, Mama Luv

Dear Perfect Storm,

Don’t settle! Keep your high standards. If you value certain qualities, date someone with those qualities! I think if you were to settle, all of the little qualities your girlfriend didn’t have would lead to problems in the relationship. I truly believe there is someone for every individual, and there is nothing wrong with being picky!
