“Somehow everything comes with an expiry date. Swordfish expires. Meat sauce expires. Even cling-film expires. Is there anything in the world which doesn’t?

If memories could be canned, would they also have expiry dates? If so, I hope they last for centuries.”

(Chungking Express; Directed by Wong Kar-Wai)

Like it or not, everything in this world, even the truest of love and the hardiest of relationships, has an expiration date. Soulmates who are perfect for us, almost tailor-made for our mental, emotional and physical needs, leave after a while.

But why is this.

This is what is known as the Twin Flame Runner phenomenon. But why does this happen to so many people every day.

Actually there is no one correct answer. Personalities differ with every other individual. As a result, anticlimactic as it may seem, their reasons for fleeing differ too.

One needs to understand man was fated to walk the earth in search of his better half, the half of his soul that was missing. And in many ways it is a consolation that the search ends up being a perpetual one.

So let’s see some of the so-called reasons or possibilities:

  1. Unable to understand the workings of a healthy relationship. This is what is called a difference in maturity.
  2. Afraid of commitment. Things happen which make people simply too afraid or plain uninterested in initiating a relationship.
  3. The attraction they feel for you is overwhelming and they simply cannot process it, being the Casanova type till then.
  4. Cannot process the spark that’s rattling him/her down to their bones as well.
  5. They are shy by nature, hence end up hiding their feelings.
  6. Simply not ready to recognise the signs and act on the feelings.
  7. Confuses infatuation with love.
  8. Is a sceptic who doesn’t believe in the existence of soulmates or twin-flames
  9. Already in a commitment and can’t end it.
  10. Doesn’t find reasons strong enough to be with the soulmate.
  11. Can’t give up their hubris and pride.
  12. Their auras need cleansing.
