12 Reasons Why Old Souls Have Such A Hard Time Finding Love

1. They have a strong sense of identity.

They know who they are, which means they also know – specifically – what they do and do not want in a partner, what works and what doesn’t. While this is fantastic in terms of being able to choose wisely, it ultimately diminishes their pool of prospects pretty significantly.

2. Left unchecked, their hyper-intuitiveness can wreck relationships.

Often prone to overthinking because of how deeply sensitive they are, their capacity to worry and make assumptions can break relationships that don’t have a perfectly strong foundation.

3. Many are in the throes of twin flame relationships.

They’re attached or are with people who are not their “forever” people, rather, intense connections they’re meant to learn, and rapidly expand, from.

4. They often have a greater purpose that must be attended to first – one that love would distract them from.

They usually have to accomplish quite a bit on their own before they find love – this is because old souls love deeply, and completely. To be given love too soon would keep them from the other important things they are here to do.

5. They will not settle for anything less than soulmate love.

They require a lot more than just a surface-level, “average” relationship. They absolutely will not settle, and sometimes, that means biting the bullet and being alone for longer than what’s “average” as well.

6. While many people can bring them passion, few can bring compatibility.

Because they feel so deeply and others find them so fascinating, it’s easy for them to find infatuation, but to be with someone who is truly their best friend, deepest confidant *and* lover is a challenge.

7. They’re less inclined to go out and meet people in modern ways.

Even if they have nothing against online dating, it doesn’t always come naturally for them, nor does finding a random hookup at a bar or being set up blindly seem appealing.

8. They’re natural healers, and often attract people who need help, not love.

And that attraction is reciprocated. There’s almost nothing that feels better to an old soul than being able to help someone who truly needs it. However, at some point in time, it’s crucial for them to realize that they have to choose a partner, not a student, or a charity case.

9. They dislike the “game.”

Dating is inherently exhausting to an older-spirited person. Feigning disinterest for the sake of looking “cool” or knowing which faux pas other people find off-putting (how long after the first date do you text again?) isn’t instinctive to them, and can stress them out more than they ever find it “fun.”

10. Their standards are sky-high.

They expect a lot from themselves, so likewise, they expect a lot from their partners. While this is a great thing, it’s another quality that has to be kept in check: it’s more important to be able to accept the qualities that aren’t deal-breakers than it is to just write a person off because they’re imperfect.

11. They have baggage.

People who developed their inner selves quickly did so for a reason: they had to cope, they had to grow, or they had to learn from some challenging experiences that life set up for them. While this is a great thing on its own, unresolved issues can often re-manifest in close relationships.

12. They feel fear as intensely as they feel love.

The degree to which they love something is proportionate to how much they fear losing it, or not being “good enough” for it. They don’t just love intensely, they feel everything else intensely, too, and sometimes, that gets in the way of the really good things in front of them.

@nytransitmuseum

Interesting timing: tomorrow, my birthday 🙆🏻, is the last day of my 4th month of hrt 🍑

since this blog started as a place for me to document my transition for myself (and has since turned into a selfie dump),

8 months treatment laser on my face, I still have significant stubble but I do see a difference, we are now attacking the patches

my hair is long and poofy as expected, and it makes me feel like shit most days, but if I pin it up, I like it a lot! I’ve braided it a few times too

My face *might* be rounding out a bit, but my boobs are DEFINIETLY growing, the tissue is the size of a big grape lmao and with a cup-less bra I look like I’m developing- no hip changes, maybe slower hair growth but I’m not too hairy anyways

I have some baby hairs growing back on my receding hairline

My appetite is pretty big, increased metabolism for fat redistribution? I’m getting a tummy (and I’m okay with it)

I’m more emotional, but it could just be stress from moving / changing environment

I’m far happier

Goals: start voice lessons in the fall, switch to estrogen shots in one month (from pills), start progesterone, get a trachea shave (maybe brow at the same time?) within a year IF POSSIBLE I think it will help job prospects

Laughing at my 2 week hormone video update cause def nothing was different then omg haha

Maybe I’ll make another video or something soon

The morning after Bobby’s party, you felt like you were going to die. Literally the worst hangover that you’ve ever had, the light in your room was too bright, your stomach was doing somersaults and you thought you were going to barf every time you attempted to move. You felt like you were on your death bed, your cell rang and it felt like someone was banging on the inside of your head, you groaned and reached for it. Trying to look at the name that was flashing on the screen, squinting and trying to focus on the name was hard and hurt but you managed to glimpse at the name which read ‘ ope ‘. You answered the call and you groaned into the phone;

Ope laughed on the other end;

“ morning sunshine, how you feeling “ You winced in pain at the sound of his voice thumping through your ears and you said in a low grumble;

“ do you have to yell ope ? “ Opie laughed and asked you;

“ do you even remember last night ? “ You tried to concentrate, tried to think than you said;

“ ugh, i’m too sick to remember anything right now. but how the hell did i get home? “ Ope shook his head, and said;

“ Donna and i took your drunk ass home “ You felt like you were going to barf, as you made your way to the bathroom you told your brother before hanging up;

“ think i’m going to be sick, i’ll catch up with you later. .. “ You dropped your cell and buried your head into your toilet. You didn’t end the call so Ope heard you and he was laughing with a disgusted look on his face, he ended the call and said to Donna;

“ told you she’d regret it in the morning.” Donna smiled as she was picking up the plates that Ellie and Kenny had left behind before getting into the truck, Opie leaned and kissed Donna as she was about to walk over to the sink;

“ i’ll see you after i drop the kids off at school “ She smiled as he kissed her and she said in a sarcastic yet loving tone;

“ ohhh, i get to see you before the club has you for the entire day? “ He lightly nudged his wife, then wrapped his arms around her waist and kissed the inside of her neck. They giggled and she said;

“ baby, your going to make the kids late for school “ Opie released his wife and walked out towards the kids, and taken them to school.

You on the other hand, the toilet was your best friend that morning. Laying on the cool bathroom floor, your body wrapped around the toilet bowl and yet you felt better laying there. You were sure you threw up everything you had in your body, you were empty. So you crawled towards the shower, and turned it on, you slowly stripped off your clothes and got into the shower. Just enjoying the water hitting you and washing away this hangover was glorious. By the time you got out, you felt better not yet a 100% but way better than you were this morning. You wrapped a towel around your waist and headed towards your kitchen.

You walked to your kitchen, and started to make some coffee. You turned around and freaked out to see Juice sitting on your couch.

“ Jesus Christ Juice ! What the hell are you doing here ?! “ Juice sat there waiting for you, and he stood up and said with a little giggle;

“ nice towel “ You grabbed it before it loosened anymore and asked again this time more calmly;

“ jerk, what are you doing here ? “ Juice walked over to the kitchen and sat down at the table, looking over at you and said;

“ well Ope came to the clubhouse this morning and said you were really sick, so i thought i’d come and check on you “ You were surprised that he would want to check up on you, you looked at him with your eyebrows slightly creased together and you said in a low voice;

“ you. wanted. to. check. up. on. me? “ Juice scoffed and said;

“ well yeah why not ? “ You didn’t know what to say, then you realized you were still in just a towel and you said in a stutter;

“ uhm uh, i should go put some clothes on. .. “ Juice looked down trying to hide his smile, and nodded in agreement. You slowly walked back towards your room, looking back you see Juice staring at you as you walked away. Juice got up trying to forget the sight of you, wet with nothing but a towel, your exposed back shining with droplets of water as you walked back to the room, his pants tightening still not getting that image out of his head. He grabbed two mugs for some coffee, and sat back at the table and waited for both you and the coffee.

Once you were dressed, you came out of the room to see Juice sitting at the table with a cup of coffee waiting for you. You smiled at the sight and he said;

“ black, two sugars right ? “ Your smile grew and you said as you said down across from him;

“ yes, thank you Juice “ He smiled cause he got your coffee right. You took a sip of it and it just hit the spot just right. After drinking your coffee you asked Juice;

“ so, how long were you waiting for me ? “ Juice looked up from his cup at you and said;

“ not long, but you do need to find a better place for your spare key Y/N “ You laughed and nodded your head in agreement. You asked Juice;

“  would you mind taking me to the clubhouse, i seem to have left my car there last night. “ You looked around, trying hard to remember last night it was quite fuzzy. Juice’s thoughts went wild, and he looked a bit annoyed but he nodded and you noticed. You looked at Juice, and said;

“ something wrong ? “ He shook his head and put his cup in the sink. You followed his lead, and put your cup in the sink, grabbed your purse and keys and followed Juice out to the van.
It was a quiet ride back to TM, but one you got into the lot and parked you said to Juice;

“ well that was awkward at all, but thanks for the coffee and the ride Juice.” He said almost under he’s breath;

“ sure no problem “ You got out of the van and headed towards the clubhouse. Once inside the guy’s greeted you, Jax said;

“ there she is ! “ Tig said;

“ wanna drink sweetheart “ You declined a drink at that moment and soon enough you found Opie;

“ Hey your alive ! “ He greeted you with a bear hug, and sat beside you at the bar. You asked Opie;

“ so what did i do last night ? “ Opie swiveled his seat towards you and put his elbow on the bar and hand on his face and said with an enormous smile;

“ well for starters, you were ridiculously drunk, and you were wrestling with sacks tongue “ Once you heard Opie say that you put your head down on the bar in embarrassment, and said;

“ oh my god, no i didn’t “ Opie laughed and lightly hit your back and said quietly;

“ dont worry Y/N, i don’t think anyone saw the two of you. They were all drunk and when i got there i told him not to say a word to anyone “ You looked at Opie, and gratefully hugged him and said;

“ really? oh thank you so much ope “ He hugged you back and he threatened you amusingly;

“ yeah yeah, dont let it happen again or i will let everyone find out “ You punched him in the shoulder.

After awhile you found yourself sharing a cigarette with Chibs outside at the picnic tables, he was telling you stories and you’ve always enjoyed them mostly of his stories in Belfast. The two of you were interrupted by Tig who was calling everyone in for church. Chib’s passed you the cigarette and said;

“ aye, finish up the story later lass “ You took the smoke and said;

“ yep sounds good. “ You smiled at Juice who was walking from the garage towards the clubhouse, wiping the grease off of his hands with the towel that he had in his back pocket, he matched your smile once he saw it. You sat there for awhile, and thought to yourself.

why don’t i just make a move already ? but what if hes not interested in me ? i’m nothing like those girls that he randomly hooks up with ? ‘

You sat there in your own thoughts until you noticed Gemma coming out of her office and heading towards you. She said as she approached you;

“ something the matter sweetheart ? “ You shook your head with a smile and said;

“ no just thinking about what my plans are for today. “ Before Gemma could say anything the guys came pouring out of the clubhouse, they were headed out for a daily run. Clay said to Gem;

“ be back later tonight baby “ Gemma agreed, pursed her lips and kissed Clay and said;

“ okay baby, be careful “ Clay nodded and as he was walking towards his bike, Gemma shouted to Tig;

“ You watch him “ Tig understood and responded;

“ yes ma’am “ Gemma also kissed and told Jax to be safe before he headed towards his bike. You seen Juice about to leave, he looked over at you and you mouthed to him; ‘ be safe ‘ 

He nodded and gave you a grin and you stood with Gemma, and the guys pulled out one by one and left the compound. You helped out Gemma that afternoon with some paperwork, you also did some work in the garage just to keep busy and keep your mind off of Juice. Just before you were about to leave TM you decided to take a chance, so you grabbed your cellphone and texted Juice.

hey, i need to talk to you. come to my house tonight . bring a bottle ‘

You swallowed your fear after you sent that text, told yourself it’s time to take a chance and go for it. You told Gemma that you were about to head home for the night, you were still feeling sick from Bobby’s party. She said to you while giving you a hug and a kiss on the cheek;

“ alright baby, get some rest. i’ll see you tomorrow “ You smiled and walked towards your car.

You got to your house, you were nervous for Juice to come over tonight because you were planning on telling him how you felt. So you decided to clean up your house, and wear an amazing outfit with this perfect black laced panty and bra to match just in case things went your way.
Soon it was 8pm, and you gotten a text from Juice saying;

okay, is everything okay? i’m at the clubhouse now. i’ll be there in 20 ‘

You felt like your heart was going to jump up your throat knowing that he was going to be there any minute, but you replied to him;

‘ everything’s good, just waiting on you ‘ 

You ran to the bathroom to look at yourself once more to make sure everything was good, you already had two beer to calm your nerves but you needed something stronger for how you were feeling. Your phone buzzed and it was Juice;

‘ okay, got the bottle ‘ 

He snapped a picture of himself and the bottle and sent it you, you couldn’t help but smile at it. Soon enough you heard Juice’s bike pull into your driveway, you were even more nervous now and kind of excited. Juice knocked on the door, and opened it and said as he walked in;

“ Y/N? it’s me Juice, i’m here. “ You got up from the couch and walked over to the Kitchen where Juice was closing the door. He turned and frozen in his tracks to see you, his eyes widened and looked over you and his mouth was ajar, you smiled at his expression and said in a low, almost seductively voice, you turned to show your body to him;

“ what? is something the matter? “ Juice was at a loss for words, he just shook his then eventually said after clearing his voice;

“ n. .no nothings the matter, you.. you just look amazing “ You smiled and walked towards him;

“ why thank you Juicey “ You grabbed the bottle, and walked over to the cabinets and pulled out two glasses, Juice looking at you still in a daze floated behind you and pulled off his gloves, placed them on the counter and said;

“ so, what did you want to talk about ? “ Juice was a little uneasy being here at your house alone and drinking, usually when the two of you drank together it be at the clubhouse or the guys would all be there. You poured some drinks and went and sat in the living room, Juice followed and you sat down on the couch. Juice stood by the couch, with his drink in his hand looking like he was going to freak out and dash for the door. You patted the space beside you on the couch and said;

“ why don’t you sit “ Juice sat down beside you, and took a drink and you said;

“ why are you so nervous Juicy “ Juice took another drink and said;

“ why you calling me Juicy? you’ve never called me that before? “ You can see he was going crazy and he was nervous which gave you a little bit more confidence that he was feeling the same way you did. You sat towards him and said; 

“ well maybe i like the way it sounds ? “ Juice nodded in approval and took another drink, sure enough he need a refill and he got up quickly and said in a shaky, uneasy voice;

“ uhm, i need a refill. be right back “ When he got to the kitchen, he took his time going to get the booze and he was telling himself;

okay, cool it Juice. She doesn’t think of you like that. She looks so hot though, and let’s face it you’ve been in her since you’ve met you. sure you think about her when your doing that, knock it off juice Ope and Jax will kill you if you sleep with Y/N ‘

You walked over to the kitchen to find Juice mumbling stuff to himself and you said;

“ you okay Juice ? “ You startled him and he said while looking at you like a deer caught in headlights;

“ uh yeh i am, just grabbing a drink “ He poured himself a drink and put the booze back in the fridge. You smiled and said as you watched him drink;

“ i like you .. Juice “ You just blurted out what you wanted to say to him for a long time. He almost choked on his drink and said;

“ what ? “ He looked at you, and you said while leaning against the counter;

“ i like you. i’ve liked you seen i first met you Juice. i’ve wanted to tell you for a long time, but i didn’t think that you’d be into me “ Juice didnt know what to say, so he polished off the rest of his drink and took a deep breath and said;

“ i like you too y/n. always have. .. i was just scared of getting rejected or opie and jax would kill “ You giggled and said;

“ you like me? “ Juice walked forward towards you and soon he was standing in front of you and said;

“ well yeah, dude your like extremely beautiful, your bad ass your not bad at games either and your my best friend “ You grabbed Juice and pulled him into you, your lips smashed together and it was electrifying. Juice’s hand found the back of your head and on the small of your back. You pulled him closer to your body, feeling his heartbeat quicken, feeling getting hard through his jeans, his hands moved to your hips and picked you up and placed you on the counter top. Your legs wrapped around his waist pulling him into you, his hands touched, grazed and caressed every curve of your body, soon they were under your shirt and soon enough it was lifted up and over your head. The two of you giggling when he got your shirt caught, you finally got it off and continued to make out.

Your hands slid and removed Juice’s kutte it slide to the floor, and he pull off his shirt, you admiring his chiseled rock hard body, you bit your lower lip and your lips rushed to his. Biting and suckling at his lower lip, Juice growling and picked you up from the counter, he had you in his arms and he walked towards your bedroom. He placed you on your bed, made you lay down and he stood there looking at you, he said;

“ take of your jeans “ You obeyed and slowly undid your button to your jeans and started to roll if off your hips but the moment Juice noticed your black laced underwear he took over. Once your jeans were off, Juice rubbed both his hands up and down your legs to your inner thighs, causing you to spread your legs for him. He started to kiss, and nip at your inner thighs making you gasp and lick your lips, he kissed and teased you through your underwear. Feeling him touch and kiss you through your panties was turning you on, you wanted to feel him now, you beg for Juice to touch you. He pulled your panties off with his teeth, and once they were off. He kissed and licked you making you moan his name, your hands clawing at the bed sheets, your back arched, your legs wanting to close but Juice holding onto them.
Juice looking up at you, loving the view reached up to squeeze your breasts and you pulled him up to and you rolled him over onto his back. He was surprised but was completely turned on by how you took control, you looked at him with such lust in your eyes, you kissed him from his lips, to his neck and slowly made it to his chest and stomach causing him to growl with pleasure, he wanted to sit up but you said;

“ no baby, lay there. my turn to take care of you “ Juice bit his lip and laid back down, you undid his jeans and pulled them off, the budge in his pants was quite impressive and you teased him a bit, holding it and rubbing it through his boxers. He was groaned and you pulled out his hard member, kissing and licking the tip making him want you more, you took his member and placed it in your mouth and started to suck slowly. You took more into your mouth soon enough you had his whole member in your mouth and you were driving Juice insane. Juice was grabbing a chuck of your hair and moving along with your rhythm, he moaned;

“ fuck, y/n “ He’s head was back and his eyes were closed, and he couldn’t take it anymore, he pulled you up and you straddled him. He grabbed his member and you hovered over him licking your lips and you lowered yourself onto him causing you both to gasp with such satisfaction. His hands gripped your hips, leaving little marks, you moved slowly up and down triggering Juice to move his hips along with yours, you moaned;

“ fuck, your so big babe “ Juice said through a grunt;

“ your so tight baby, shit “ Your pace quickened and Juice moaned and that pushed you over the edge, hearing him being so turned on by you was turning you on even more and you were coming close and Juice felt you tightening around him. Both you and Juice climaxed together, you rode out both your orgasms, you got off Juice and laid beside him on the bed. You rested your head on his chest, his arm was wrapped around your waist and rested on your stomach. You were tracing his chest tatttoos with your fingers, and listening to his heart beat when he broke the silence;

“ that. was. amazing. “ You smiled, and picked yourself up, resting on your elbow and looked at him. He looked at you with a matching smile and you kissed him. Once your lips parted you laid back down beside him. You cuddled, and eventually fell asleep in each others arms. .

Nos. 2 and 5 trains in operation.

You spoke to Flint?

He approached me.

Why would he do that? Why attempt to scuttle the idea before any of us have even arrived at it?

Is it possible he still believes he can take back his command? How? There isn’t a man on the crew that will even speak to him, much less support him.

I don’t know, but had he that notion, I imagine the idea of this crew taking a prize under your command would be a terrifying prospect.
