How high are your standards?

    I wrote a similar post back in 2013 after a friend told me my standard were too high.

    It’s a difficult thing. I think our standards should be high, but we should stick to them 100% and should be open to people coming and going from our lives. It’s good to have high expectations, but not unrealistic ones. x

    Vix,

    This post couldn’t be more spot on! I am also seen as having ‘too high standards’ but that is mostly coming from people who have been with their significant other since nappies and don’t have a clue how dating after early 2000 has evolved!

    If a guy cannot hold a good conversation over text (which is really how we spend 90% of our time communicating with the opposite sex) then it’s bye-bye from me. I can’t stand one word responses or when I seem to be the only one asking questions to get to know them and they offer me nothing back. Same goes for meeting in person, you may of been a hoot over text but if in person, there’s more spark from an electronic device, I’m a goner.

    I’ve learnt that we are simply just not settling. Repeat that over and over again to yourself every time you’re accused of having standards that are too high!

    At the end of the day Vix. That’s nobody else’s "problem" but yours & your partners.

    If that’s what you want, go get it & I hope you do.

    I love this post, and I expect all of the same things you do too! Don’t let your friends tell you your standards are too high just because they’re clearly settling for less than they deserve- they may just need a good read of your blog so that they can come to their senses!
