I have a friend. Ashley is 32, well-educated, smart, attractive, and a good person. Years ago Ashley met David through a mutual friend.
No guy will ever be enough. As a lady who only wants the best in life, you grow tired of your boyfriends faster than other girls usually do. Your partner gets intimidated by your life goals.
When it comes to a girl I want to see somewhat regularly or exclusively, I have high standards. They are also not requirements, which I feel is an important note. My ex-girlfriend found a great job while in college and never graduated; one of my ex-girlfriends had a long line of convicts in her family; exceptions can be made, but these are traits that are important to me.
We often fall in love with the potential someone has but not the actual person. This can be quite harmful in the end. When it comes to relationships we need to take a different approach when we continue getting the same results.
It's good to have some standards. Imagine where we would be if we didn't have a certain vision for our lives and our dating lives as well. But there's a big difference between having an awareness about what's good for you and taking things a bit too far in the picky department.
And what often makes things ten times worse is that the person who's doing the complaining is usually far from flawless -- whether that means they still live out home with their parents or they're far from a perfect ten in the looks department. But how do you know if you're simply holding out for Mr. Well, we're here to set the record straight and see if you really know where your priorities are at or if your standards are simply way too high.

We met at a church event one summer, our eyes meeting as I walked towards the trash can after I had finished eating. So romantic, right? The church event ended with an after-party at a local wine bar, and he was going, so I figured I might as well go and see where it went.
I've been truly single for what seems like eons. But since my last serious relationship a couple of years ago, there have been several questionable matches, a few horrible first dates and a couple of almosts. Or as someone once put it, contenders.
