Dating Don’ts: The Bad Habits That Keep You Single

September 10, 2014  |  

As a relationship expert and love guru, I encourage women to be “self-first.” That is, to keep it real, know yourself and own up to the error of your ways in romantic relationships. Even when our antics are embarrassing (did I really just drink and dial?) we must be accountable. It is the only way to learn.

I have made plenty of mistakes. I’ve stumbled over the same old rock. What was one of my bad habits? I was attracted to unavailable men. I desired men who couldn’t love me the way I needed to be loved. I chased men who weren’t emotionally ready to commit. That’s because I wasn’t ready. As much as I’d holler, “I want a relationship! I am ready for love!” I still had internal work to do. And so I continued the pattern. I didn’t realize my errors and why my relationships didn’t work. My bad habits were keeping me single.

We all have bad habits. That mountain to climb to have and sustain a healthy, romantic relationship. What bad habits must be discarded to be successful in love? I’m here to tell you. Here are seven bad habits that lead to breakups and keep you single.
