Don’t notice other guys

Due to the specifications you’ve set out for yourself you don’t even look the other way for some potential. You’ll never know what it’s like to date other men because you only stick to one particular type. Limiting yourself to one type of man when there’s plenty in the market is doing injustice to yourself.

Your type keeps getting more specific

As you grow older your type changes according to your personality and needs. It gets even more impractical when you get older as it might be a challenge to get one man who ticks all your requirements.

Unnecessary pressure

Dating should be fun and constantly searching for your type can turn it into a daunting process which can put you off dating for quite some time. Often life throws the unexpected at us, it’s the same with love. That guy you think isn’t in your league might just be your mr right.

Is it really what you want?

Have you ever taken time to evaluate whether your type is influenced by what others think or is it your personal choice?. Chances are a big part of your ideal man is made up by what you see in movies, books, or what your aspire from other couples.

Your type hasn’t worked out

Ok so you’ve dating your type before, that tall, dark , handsome and career driven man, but it still didn’t work out. It could be that your type isn’t your type after all. Time to make have another type.

Reminder of bad exes

Dating the same kind of men might bring back those old memories you’d rather forget. How about you find different kind of person who will give you new experiences?.
