Irvine Matchmakers | Signs You’re Been Single in OC Too Long

single women in orange county

Being single can sometimes be absolutely amazing.  However, our Irvine matchmakers know things get a little more complicated when you’ve been single for too long.  There’s a certain luxury to being single, like getting to do whatever you want, coming and going when you please, and answering to no one but yourself.  But doing these things for too long can change a woman—not usually for the better.

Bad behaviors can quickly become second nature and cause you to lose your motivation to find love.  Similar to a job applicant with a gap in their resume, your long period of singleness can raise a red flag with potential partners.  Just as you question why a man has never been married or in a long-term relationship, men will question if there’s something wrong with you.  And we don’t have to tell you that’s the last thing you want in your dating life.

Today, our Irvine matchmakers will show you the telltale signs you’ve been single in OC for far too long.

1. Your mom has accepted your fate.

We feel a little bad for your mom.  She wanted grandkids or at least for you to be engaged by now.  But no, she didn’t anything.  At first she was mad and telling everyone at family get togethers and Christmas dinners how she wished you would’ve met a nice guy by now.  But she’s now accepted your fate and knows that you are SINGLE.  Your annoying relatives don’t get it and still bombard you with questions about why you can’t find a nice guy.  Isn’t that what relatives always do?

2. You love your routines.

Sure, couples have routines too—Friday night date nights at the local Italian place, Saturday mornings at the farmers market, and Sunday morning walks by the beach.  But you’ve definitely been single for too long when you start loving your lonely routine—watching your favorite shows on TV every night.  You love coming home to your apartment after a long day and getting comfy on your sofa to watch your favorite show with take-out or a frozen TV dinner.  You love not having to fight a boyfriend about what to watch on the tube because you get to choose whatever you want.

3. You no longer want to get married.

It is every woman’s dream to get married and walk down the aisle in a beautiful white dress.  Come on now, you would be lying if you said you didn’t want to.  When you were young, you dreamed about getting married and envisioned your beautiful dress, but fast forward 20 years and you can’t even imagine getting married.  You swear to yourself and your best friends that married life isn’t for you.  And even though everyone knows you still want to get married deep down, you tell the world that the thought of marriage doesn’t ever cross your mind.  You’ve become so used to your single life that you can’t imagine sharing it with someone else.

4. You’re no longer romantic.

It’s very hard to keep believing in true love when you can’t get past the first date.  You figure that love still exists but don’t believe it’s going to happen to you.  Maybe your best friend has the best husband in the world and your parents have been together since they were just teenagers.  It’s true, you know that love exists but don’t know why it still hasn’t happened for you.  You no longer care about roses and chocolates, Valentine’s Day, or romance in general.  Romance is dead for you.

5. You’re always in your PJs.

Why would you change out of your PJs?  Sweatpants and leggings are way more comfortable than a dress.  They’re basically made for the single life, which revolves around watching movies on the sofa.  You can’t remember the last time you did your hair or put mascara on.  Sure, you have to do it for work, but you never do it beyond that.  Your friends are now starting to wonder why you’re letting yourself go.  You’ve also been known for wearing your PJs out of the house.
