Have you actually sat back to wonder why models are always single?
With a flashy career such as this one that deals heavily with marketing attractiveness, you begin to wonder what it’s like to maintain a long relationship in such an industry.
Being a model comes with a lot of perks like traveling the world, free access to beauty makeovers, and all-around adoration from people because of your beauty.
The downside, however, is the models last longer in their singleness than they do in a relationship.
Let’s explore why this is so.
Why Are Models Always Single?
1. The challenges of being in a relationship with them can drive people away:
Dating a model comes with a level of expectations that are hard to meet, unlike dating a regular person out there.
They usually have a busy schedule, and their partner often has to be as supportive as possible.
By regular, this means dating someone who is not often in the public eye and exceeding societal beauty standards.
Models are constantly on the move to be the face and placeholder for the next big buzz, making it a very sporadic career with highly promising returns.
There are a lot of changes that will occur in the life of a model that will require a different set of preparedness to handle, and this is a mindset that many do not possess.
For instance, as a man, are you comfortable with your woman being scantily clad in front of many flashing camera lights?
How much trust can you have seeing her in after-parties with the men she works with?
Will you begin to feel insecure when she’s out during weekends and nights to work at fashion shows or participate in photoshoots?
A lot of people chicken out of the heavy emotional responsibility required to handle all of that change.
Some people are probably not mature enough to put themselves in such relationships.
This leaves models single most of the time.
2. The idea that models are shallow:
There is also a preconceived notion that models are shallow individuals.
What many fail to understand is the fact that a modeling job requires them to be constantly posing, smiling, and radiating beauty.
It’s hard work, and someone who takes it seriously wouldn’t have time for anything else.
These individuals are often too busy with their photo shoots and shows to make any other commitments.
When people who have been in relationships with models share their experiences, they always make reference to how self-absorbed they can be.
Of course, it could be possible that this comes with the job.
The models need to invest heavily in their image so they can rise in their careers.
This can make them forget to invest in other essential areas such as knowledge, virtues, hobbies, and the observation of everyday life.
Their personality is completely overwhelmed by the flashy career engagements.
However, this assumption is mostly wrong; it’s not always like this.
This becomes one of the driving reasons models are ignored and left single.
3. Her physical aesthetics:
One of the main reasons models are so desirable is their physical appearance.
They maintain a certain level of attractiveness and it influences many people who may be attracted to them, which can make them feel overwhelmed and intimidated.
This can lead to a lack of real connection, because they don’t give others the chance to get through their physical exterior and discover how they truly are.
However, few people realize that models have more to offer than just their looks; they can be kind, funny, smart and have ambitious goals.
Also, this physical aesthetics like their height can project a sense of low self esteem on a man who is not sure of himself.
If a man is 5’9 and dates a 6’1 lady, who might even wear heels on the runway or around him, this man can begin to feel very insecure.
No man wants to be in that situation where he is judged because of his physical attributes, and if some part of his esteem is rooted in how people view him, you can rest assured he’ll feel insecure.
A lot of men and women don’t date models because they cannot handle feeling less around them.
4. Models are overly-ambitious people:
Models are really fierce when it comes to rising in their careers.
And because of how ambitious they can get, it is quite possible for them to dismiss all love interests and chase paper magazines with beauty products all their lives.
They spend all their free time trying to “make it” in the supermodel industry, and this can put a lot of pressure on themselves and the people around them.
A lot of models become single because they cannot handle the intense demands their job brings, alongside catering to the needs of their partner.
This ambitious desire to “make it” can affect their emotional state so much and make them unable to handle their outbursts around other people.
All this can make a model decide to stay single or make prospective chances of being in a relationship to be non-existent.
5. Terrible attitude:
Many famous models are often single due to their attitude.
As they become famous, they receive a lot of praise and adoration from their fans, which can lead to a feeling of superiority.
They may think they can get away with treating people poorly, making rude comments and expecting special treatment everywhere they go.
This negative attitude makes them intimidating to those who want to be in a relationship with them, and it’s tough for others to stay with someone who is constantly belittling them.
Eventually, the attitude creates problems in a long-term relationship for them.
This is the major reason why it is usually difficult to pursue a romantic relationship with people like this.
And before you know it, the exhibition of this bad behavior will quench the fire of any relationship even before it goes wild.
6. The constant breach of privacy:
A lot of people actually do not desire to be in the public eye, and if being with a model will make them seen by the media beyond the boundaries they set, best believe they will remove themselves from that relationship.
Being with a model is being with someone in the eye of the public.
If as a man you are big on keeping your life and business private, being in a relationship with a model might actually breach your code of privacy.
Privacy is a major issue for many and when it’s constantly violated, the relationship can become strained.
A model is someone with a public life and being private is more of a boundary for them just like how being public will be a limit for you too.
It becomes very overwhelming that every time you go out with your hot model partner to enter the ice cream store and grab some frozen yoghurt, your partner is snatched from your arms by a camera that just met her on the street.
Yet this is the case of very many couples, where the other partner who is not a model leaves because they see their sense of privacy threatened.
This will ultimately lead to the end of the relationship where the other party cannot compromise and then it becomes a rinse and repeat cycle.
7. The models choose to be single:
It’s important to note that not all models are in search of love.
Some choose to remain single in order to focus on their career goals and see relationships as a distraction.
While it’s true that no man is an island, some people prefer solitude and may even worry about being exploited for fame if they enter into intimate relationships.
We must always remember that models, no matter how famous or popular, are human at their core.
They seek love, connections, and a place to call home just like everyone else.
While some models may let their job affect their behavior, many are truly kind-hearted.
It’s important to take the time to get to know them and appreciate them for who they are despite the complexities that come with their profession.
After all, what is love without embracing someone, warts and all?
