13 Reasons Why Old Souls Struggle To Find Love
Old souls are walking a hard path on Earth. They are feeling trapped in the 3-Dimensional world, and the materialism, consumerism, and selfishness of humanity is a huge issue to them. One of their hardest quest in life to accomplish is certainly finding their soulmate, or the love that is going to last for a lifetime.
Old souls believe in the true power of love. They are not ‘fascinated’ by the sparkling reality of the material world, but they feed on positive emotions and energy vibration. They look always for a higher purpose in life and that’s what they are looking to find in the person they want to spend their lives with.
They truly value honesty, authenticity, passion, empathy, sincerity, depth and positivity. They will love you will their whole soul and won’t ever let you down. However, they have true reasons why they are searching for LOVE, not just a partner, or a person to break their loneliness.
This is why old souls find it so difficult to find love in this world:
1. THEY WANT LOVE THAT IS AUTHENTIC
They want to be in a true relationship where both of the partners invest themselves fully. They want someone who is going to fight for them, invent new things, bring new contents in the relationship and put them first before them.
2. THEY WANT LOVE THAT TEACHES THEM
They want their lover to be an open and deep person. They really want to learn new things and when they find the ‘other part’ of their souls, they want to ‘suck’ all wisdom out of it.
3. THEY ARE HEALERS, BUT WON’T ‘FIX’ ANYONE
Old Souls have strong empathic abilities. However, they are spiritually strong and they know who deserves and who doesn’t deserve to be healed. They don’t want to be 24/7 doctors or counselors to their partners (this happens too often in their relationships and bothers them), but they want to find someone similar to them that will use their own energy to improve themselves, not wait for the ‘healer’ to intervene.
4. THEY HAVE COMPLEX PERSONALITIES
It’s obvious- the Old Soul are special and their personality type is not very likable to many. Their spiritual depth and complexed emotions and thoughts may be overwhelming for the ordinary, materialist people.
5. THEY WANT LOVE THAT IS BEYOND ‘LIKING’
They want commitment and deeds. For sure, nobody is going to say that the physical appearance is neglected, old souls are also attracted by the physical beauty, but they want to see the emotional profile first. They want someone who is ready to love their soul first, then their body. They want people who will fight to find out what lies behind their eyes, inside their soul, not what lies behind their clothes.
6. THEY WANT LOVE THAT IS VULNERABLE
Old Souls want real things, realistic love and true challenges. They want to have a strong motive and develop together with the partner. Taking risks is just another way to discover if their relationship is strong enough to last for a lifetime and surpass all obstacles on their path to happiness and wholeness…
7. THEY WANT COMMITMENT AND EFFORT
Commitment and effort are also very misinterpreted by the modern humans. True effort and commitment for the Old Souls means that they expect radical changes and sacrifices from their partners. Don’t worry, if you are in a relationship with an Old Soul, they will do everything to show how true their love is, but you have to do the same.
True commitment and effort is not something from the material world, but a radical change of the soul of oneself, their behavior patterns, goals, purposes…
8. THEY WANT LOVE ROOTED IN WHOLENESS
This is the purpose of the reason above. They search for radical changes and true commitment in their partner because they want to unite the two souls. The true concept of love to the Old Soul is when two souls become one. That’s the wholeness they are looking for. They want the roots of the relationship to be their SPIRITUAL UNITY.
9. THEY WON’T SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN SOULMATE LOVE
Of course, you already realized this. All their efforts and demands at the beginning of their relationships are one big attempt to see if they could seek the spiritual unity and wholeness. The wholeness represents a true SOULMATE LOVE. Old Souls want to establish soulmate relationships because they want to stick to their partner’s soul even in other dimensions, lives or worlds.
10. THEY DON’T ENJOY THE “DATING GAME”
Drama, insecurity, little dating games, intrigues- these are not part of the Old Soul’s concept of love. These things won’t bring any excitement to the old soul, but will only ruin your attempt to establish a love relationship with them.
11. THEY COME WITH WOUNDS
Old Souls are the definition of troublesome and complexed personality. They look for a person that is going to ACCEPT THEMSELVES AS THEY ARE. When you accept them and understand them, you won’t be regretting because you would have something precious- a true love.
12. THEY LOVE MORE THAN JUST SEX
They love making love. Sex is not just a physical connection to them, but an emotional connection too.
13. THEY ARE FREE SPIRITS
They truly are wild spirits. You must never limit an Old Soul. They are the most loyal and caring people, but they want to experience new things, go to new places, do new things. Of course, they would love to do all those things with their partner, but most of the time, partners of Old Souls are unable to follow their path.
