We have all been in that phase where you just want to take time to yourself and re-discover who you are as an individual.

So how long is too long to be single?

Here are some tell-tale signs that you may have been single for way too long.

You’re family members have stopped asking you about your love life

Your family members just stop asking you about your love life because even they have given up on asking.

Your ex no longer refers to you as their ex anymore

Your most recent ex has had five other girlfriends after you that you’re no longer an ex to them but more of another person in their past. You have most definitely been single for way too long.

You always come on too strong when a guy approaches you

If you suddenly feel the urge to pour out all your deepest darkest secrets on your first date and start spilling how long you have been single for, you have been single for too long.

Your friends have stopped trying to hook you up

Even your friends seem to have lost hope in trying to hook you up.

You never change your schedule

When you have been single for too long, it becomes very easy for you to stick to a particular schedule. You have no desire whatsoever to change up our routine. That’s how stagnant your life has become.

It may also be time for you to start switching up your lifestyle.

You no longer know why you’re single

It was a bit easier to blame your being single on the fact that you and your ex-boyfriend were completely incompatible or it could be that you just wanted to enjoy the single life after being in a relationship for so long.

Once these excuses run out though, you really don’t know why you’re single anymore.
