Episode 44: Balance of standards and expectations

Is there such a thing as the ideal person? Probably not. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have standards. I bring on Leslie and Shay to talk about this conundrum of people who think they are being too “selective” in who they date.

While we both agree that having standards is something everyone should have, we also agree that it’s important to be open and make sure we have a balance of standards and expectations. Especially for my singletons out there, it’s hard in this dating world to really meet someone you truly feel connected to, so why waste time. How I see it, if you want to date, go for it. But if you don’t, there shouldn’t be any pressure to do so.

On another note, you should be selective, especially if you are with someone; you want to be with someone who will make your needs a priority and vice versa. Finding a partner who will be there for the big events and the little occasions is important.

To sum up, it’s important to keep a balanced mindset. Don’t go into anything with too much expectation because that will more often than not end with disappointment. Keep  your standards straight and know your worth.
