Earlier this week I was watching a reality shows about a woman looking for love, and she had a list of things that she wanted in a man. Even though her friends criticized her list there are many people who have standards for dating. When it comes to dating are standards more of a list of wants or requirements?
On the shoe the woman met a lot of nice guys, but she found something wrong with all of them. It wasn’t until someone told her that she won’t meet someone who fit her standards that she put the list aside. Then her dating life changed and she was able to date without thinking about the standards she had.
There is nothing wrong with having standards; at the same time those standards can’t get in the way of finding someone great. For dating to work one has to be willing to take people as they are not judging them on every characteristic. Dating is an experience that is meant to be enjoyed; not an interrogation.
