3 Reasons You’re Still Single


(According to Your Barber)

Missed Connections

Look, we love hearing your dating stories while you’re in the chair, but let’s get real for a sec. Ever wonder why you’re still single? We’ve got some constructive feedback. It’s not just about looking good, it’s about bringing something interesting to the table. So, while we shape up your hair, let’s shape up your game. Here are three reasons why you might still be flying solo—and trust us, we’ve heard it all.

1. You’re Boring

Listen, nobody wants to hear the same old small talk about the weather and work.

If your go-to topics are as dry as Austin in August, it’s time to diversify. Not all news is soul-crushing dystopian propaganda. There’s plenty of local happenings, seasonal celebrations, and feel-good stories that make for great conversation. Keep up with what’s going on in Austin – from local music gigs to foodie festivals – and you’ll always have something interesting to say. Trust us, staying in the loop can not only make you smarter but it makes you sound cooler too.

2. You’re Stuck in a Rut

Routine can be comforting, but it can also make you predictable. They’re either working for you or against you. If you find yourself going to the same bars, eating the same food, and spending hours on a video game, it’s no wonder you’re not meeting new people. ‘Cause let’s be honest – We know you’re sick of the apps. Imagine being single in a city like Austin and not having fun. Get out there – take a cooking class, join a book club, or try pickle ball. (For some reason that’s popular now.) You’re guaranteed to meet new people with similar interests. For all you DND nerds out there, just think of it as character building.

“Variety is the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavor.” – William Cowper

3. You’re Overthinking It

Sometimes, the problem isn’t your actions but your perspective. If you’re constantly strategizing your next move or worrying about the perfect line, you’re probably coming off as stiff or insincere. Relax and learn to ride the waves as they come.

Dating is a game for gamblers not card counters.

Don’t fall into the trap of comparing yourself to internet troll content. There’s more to dating than being over 6′ and having a good job. You actually just have to like each other. Which starts by getting to know each other as you are – not as you present yourself to be. Scary, we know. Time to lock in. (or whatever the kids are saying these days.)

There you have it – straight from the barbershop chair. Now, we could have told you the reason you’re still single is because you haven’t booked yet. But we don’t let our favorite clients walk around looking dusty in the first place.

So, whether it’s spicing up your conversation, breaking out of your routine, or unlearning internet dating advice, these tips can help you find the connection you’re looking for. After all, we’ve seen a lot of love and loss from this seat, and we’re rooting for you.
