Let’s face it—we all like to imagine we will stumble upon the perfect person.
We select the ideal salary, appearance, intellect, personality and habits of this fictional character and then store that image in the back of our minds while dating. As harmless as this may seem, it can actually wreck your love life.
I’m all for having dating standards, but a standard should be set to ensure happiness, not prevent being open to happiness from the start. Healthy relationships aren’t built upon a man’s height or wallet size, but rather the size of his heart.
Today I dive into the only real dating standard that should exist while you’re trying to meet new people and have the love life you seek. There’s definitely a right and wrong way to restrict your options in dating.
What standards have you learned to be most important in your dating experiences? What kind of situations taught you to feel the way you do?
I would be thrilled to read your thoughts and experiences in the comments below, as we all of have such unique reasons for establishing standards.
