“The search for the special relationship is the sign that you equate yourself with the ego and not with God. For the special relationship has value only to the ego. To the ego, unless a relationship has special value it has no meaning, for it perceives all love as special.” ~ A Course In Miracles

Many individuals who tend to idealistically romanticize about a “twin flame” relationship with someone who “runs” or is an unrequited love can have similar characteristics:

  • A romantic at heart, very trusting, empathic and naive, prey to people who use, deceive and take advantage of them
  • Symptoms of love addictions (see
  • Feel swept up easily. Usually attracted to strong personalities that create a lot of drama for them
  • Feel bored or restless in a settled relationship, but at the same time feel their “life isn’t complete” without a partner
  • Need unrequited love, an on-and-off relationship, a married man, or angst to feel a “high”
  • Confused emotions. Confuse intense feelings and angst with love
  • Tendency to be codependent or needing validation/approval
  • Polarized mind-set, all or nothing thinking
  • Very outcome focused rather than living in the present moment and accepting things as they come
  • Can go through spells of despondency which they bounce back from fairly quickly through attempting to get validation that a positive outcome will occur or that their hopes can still be fulfilled
  • Many have been “waiting” for their twin flame to materialize or come forward (if known or unknown) and thus can vocalize their impatience at having to keep waiting
  • Will start to see “signs” of all kinds, such as 11:11 or dreams, that they interpret are God’s or the Universes way of telling them to keep hanging in because the person they love is a twin and will eventually come forward.
  • Tend to discuss how they are “picking up” the other persons thoughts and feelings. They may be focused on what another person may or may not feel rather than being in their own body and focused on their own emotions
  • Inability to meditate or be still
  • Refusal to fully mourn a relationship that isn’t working out or to move forward
  • Some will talk about how life is “not worth living” without their “twin” in their life
  • In a very few cases, there may occur threats/desire to commit suicide, loss of touch with reality, restraining orders, or stalking

If any of this sounds like you, then you might want consider challenging some of the things you’ve been taught to believe or how you employ them so you can come to a place you feel more empowered and free.
